CONNECTION OF VARIOUS SOURCES
Our solution helps clients with proprietary locks (vendor lock-in), as it allows digitized reports to be connected to a data warehouse uniting exports from various databases.
HR is characterized by cooperation with other third-party systems (attendance record, payroll systems, etc.). Our solution helps to bridge the gap and implement smart reporting.
We can set up HR reporting and we understand the recruitment approach. We understand the context of the data and help with setting KPIs and metrics based on experience from previous projects. So you can choose from many preset KPIs or have new metrics created to suit you.
Our reports will give you greater visibility of your employees, making it easier for you to retain existing staff.
What we offer ?
We connect various systems and other data sources
We create new reports in hours
We set indicators in comparison with the plan
We know probabilistic models (fluctuations, recruitment, ..)
We automate reports -> fewer manual tasks
Our solution does not cause vendor lock-in
Our approach to implementation
Definition of indicators (2-3 weeks)
- In the initial phase, the client defines the main areas of interest and defines key HR indicators that should be monitored.
- Indicators may include, for example, fluctuations, age structure or fulfillment of key competencies.
- The indicators will be defined in cooperation with HR management and other managers.
Database (2-3 weeks)
- There will also be an initial survey of the data warehouses used in cooperation with the internal IT department.
- The aim is to prepare the environment for the subsequent implementation and operation of the planning application.
- The database can be represented by several independent sources such as the main company databases and additional MS Excel files.
Connection (2-3 weeks)
- When creating reports in Power BI, it is necessary to define the connection to data sources.
- In the case of databases, it is necessary to make the connection available in order to read data and created queries by the internal IT department.
Modeling (2-3 weeks)
The data is further modeled and edited directly in Power BI.
There are also combined different data sources that can be interconnected to create interactive and interconnected reports.
The logic of modeling is created in cooperation with employees familiar with the issue.
Output (2 weeks)
- In the final phase of creation, only the reports themselves are prepared based on the individual needs of their future users.
- These messages are then made available through personal accounts on the necessary Power BI interface.
Client requirements and project goal
The client required more flexible HR planning and faster access to HR data with multiple levels of access. In addition, HR data was stored in several locations and in various independent databases. The aim of the project was to integrate the database into the data warehouse and create a simple and fully automated report for HR and HR planning.
- Initial analysis revealed disparate data sources, data variously updated in three databases and manually generated reports, which formed the HR area for management
- As part of report automation, this data was unified and interconnected according to the master keys in the created data warehouse in SQL Server Management Studio. A comprehensive HR report was created over this warehouse in the MS Power BI Report Server, where we set up individual analyzes, including a predictive model for improving the strategic management of the HR sector.
- The data analysis helped the client to identify the main data sources and with our support, this data was gradually unified into the main internal database.
- In-depth analyzes alert the client to potential risks in individual sections. The summary dashboard set by us also allows you to monitor KPI values and compare them with the monthly and YTD plan.
- Our ongoing support helped with the adjustment of some methodologies and monitored values.
- Within the project, automatic reporting was set up for the client, enabling long-term monitoring of developments in the areas covered by the project.
