Dundas Bi Solution Helped Medidata and Its Clients in Getting Better Data Visualisation

Medidata is a Portugal-based company which is specialised in providing ERP based solutions to the Portuguese government. The company believes in modernising the technology and software solutions used by the Portuguese government for combating with the fast evolution of the market.

Medidata was committed in continuous development by providing a variety of software products and services, which might include back-office applications, support systems, etc. in order to fulfil the requirements of municipalities and residents of Portugal.

In addition to fulfil the requirements of the Portuguese government, Medidata has its own pool of customers who use ERP solutions and services for improving document management and enhancing workflow.

Medidata started receiving demands from its clients to provide software that can help them in analysing and interacting with the data generated from the ERP software. Medidata felt necessary to include a Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics solution in its collection of software solutions.

BI and Analytics solution advantages for Medidata’s clients

The BI and analytics solution will have the following advantages for Medidata’s clients:

  • It helped them in taking better and more informed decisions
  • It improved efficiency and productivity of clients
  • It was capable of redefining processes when required
  • It was scalable which means it can increase or decrease resources as and when required

Also, to detect and resolve its own issues related to quality of data, Medidata also used BI and analytics along with fulfilling the needs of clients. Medidata decided to migrate on the Dundas BI solution for data visualisation. The decision was obvious because Dundas has been working as a partner since 2009 when it was involved in developing business intelligence components.

The satisfaction and belief in using Dundas legacy products helped Medidata in migrating to Dundas BI solution for visualising the data. Dundas has created and provided customised software for data visualisation for start-up companies as well as fortune 500 companies.

Before formalising the partnership, several meetings were held between Medidata and Dundas to discuss how Medidata would encourage the clients to use the Dundas BI solution for data visualisation. After understanding the strategies of Medidata of selling and marketing the Dundas BI solution, Dundas decided to provide the customised BI solution with full support as per Medi

data’s needs to use and test it for a certain period of time. Dundas also helped Medidata in learning the use of BI solution by providing multimedia training content and webinars. It helped in the adoption of BI solution rapidly across Medidata. The interface of BI solution for data visualisation is shown in the following Figure A:
