Back Office Services

  • BI services provide a range of capabilities and are organized into four services domains
    • Application
    • Access
    • Information
    • Data services
  • Capabilities may be delivered or access from multiple channels such as mobile devices, web, or PC
  • BI services depend upon portal and collaboration services for access, distribution , publishing, and sharing data
  • Due to many strategic initiatives over the next few years, including enterprise customer system, smart meters and grids, the demand for broad spectrum of BI capabilities will significantly increase

BI Services Architecture

Component View

BI Reference Model and BI Applications Archetypes provide detailed technical decomposition of many BI services. The component view is useful for the design, organization, integration, and reuse of any BI solution.

Each component is evaluated in terms of current implementation(s), potential constraints, and architecture direction to support desired scalability, functionality, and performance.

BI Applications Services

Assessment and Plans

The application services are business-facing, high-level services provided by instantiating and/or leveraging platform services

  • KPI Management: Need capability to define and aggregate KPIs at individual (role), departmental, process levels. Currently only financial (lagging indicators) KPIs are reported.
  • Configuration: A business function should be able to configure what (balanced scorecard) they want to monitor and manage. Currently pre-defined financial view of the group is presented.
  • Consolidation and Integration: Process KPIs would require data from multiple data sources combined and rationalized to show correlation and to drill down into specific functional area.
  • Events and Monitoring: In most cases, dashboards are updated monthly. To respond to fluctuating demand and supply, must have dynamic, event-driven dashboards.

Dashboard and Scorecards

Managed Reporting

  • Each lines of business (LOB) application and business groups have their own way to managing reports. Must provide consistent user experience and mechanism to identify, produce, distribute and archive reports.

Operational BI

  • Operational reporting and analysis is going to be very critical for internal management as well as for customers to monitor, manage and plan energy consumption and cost. Must consider near real-time meter data gathering and price monitoring, consolidation, reporting, distribution and notification.

Self-Service BI

Customers and business users should be able to create their own custom reports and analytics. Must provide provisioning of data where the data required for reporting and analysis is not already available.

bi services architecture2
BI Services Architecture

Technical View

The following architecture models the range of capabilities and interfaces related to BI services.

Over time, users want to have a unified and consistent experience across all types of information and transactions. The information access relies on portal and collaboration services for a single point of interface. Users would expect close to real-time analysis and reporting. The underlying technical architecture must be scalable and flexible to process large volume of data.

External and internal users may need to have access to similar information. The breadth and depth of integration with data and applications, along with security considerations may drive separation between internal and external access.

Note: A server in the diagram does not necessarily imply a separate physical hardware. It is meant to represent a service. The physical implementation of a service or capability may use one or more hardware components.

Current architecture assessment

Identify current state and issues – what works (good), what is a concern they must watch/evaluate, what is design constraint or show stopper they must address soon
