Use Cases and Deployment Scope

The Yellowfin BI solution was our preferred choice in our journey to source an ideal BI partner for our RUBIQ GRC (Governance, Risk & Compliance) solution. Yellowfin checked all the boxes for us in terms of flexibility and adaptability to our environment and requirements, in embedding capability and white labelling of the product to provide us with a seamless BI platform supporting our GRC suite of the RUBiQ modules for our end clients. Furthermore RUBiQ is a cloud GRC solution offering and Yellowfin adapted to meet our multi-tenant requirements within our cloud environment. Living as we do in an age of information, enabling access to validated and verified information for critical decision making is an absolute must in any decision maker’s tool kit. The problem is that often information is disbursed and siloed within most organisations, leaving a lot of gut feel and guess work to do on the part of the decision maker. On top of this, a great deal of information in organisations today, still ends up being manually compiled and distributed in Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, this can allow for personal opinions and alteration of information for the "innocent purpose of showing the good and softening the bad" when reporting to executives. Unfortunately decision makers need all the key critical information, as real time as possible, to formulate an accurate picture to take key actions to circumvent and prevent crisis related situations. The integration of Yellowfin with our RUBiQ GRC solution allows us to ensure that this does not occur and key decision makers get timely accurate, real time data to confidently make the right decisions to ensure ongoing business continuity, viability and sustainability and growth within their organisations.

Here are some business problems we have addressed for our customers:

Flexible and useful tool that meets many visualization/analytic needs

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Yellowfin came as a package within our audit analytics suite (ACL), which was being used as a post-analytics visualization tool. It was used exclusively by our audit team with 5 developers and ~15 business users. The tool was great for the time we used it, however ACL went away from using Yellowfin and decided to do most of the visualization with their in-house tool. Overall, the Yellowfin tool didn't catch-on the way it had intended and was somewhat limited because of the learning curve for SQL and developing.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Yellowfin BI provides web-based access to data from all performance areas of the university. For example, the portal can be used to retrieve aggregated numbers about students (bachelor, master and doctoral), publications, and external funding. Furthermore, it can create detailed reports that provide a structured overview of contract durations, project budgets and available positions. The system aims to efficiently complete internal and external reporting requirements (e.g. monitoring reports for study and teaching, the delivery of rankings, reports for donors) and to reduce the growing workload for reporting tasks. The availability and usability of the data supports internal and external decision-making, controlling, and the management by university employees. This will significantly strengthen the strategic management of the university on all levels. The portal is available to all employees of the university as self-service BI.
