Current position:

  • Children's Social Care is using Business Objects to query data, export the data to excel spreadsheets, manipulate the data and produce charts etc. for reporting.
  • There is a separate corporate data warehouse currently holding financial and HR data and it is expected that Children's Social Care reporting will need to access financial data in the future for business intelligence dashboards and reporting.

Need: Children's Social Care is moving their main business system from CareFirst to Eclipse and need to reproduce around 70 tabular reports. In addition, there are 71 Excel based reports that are being redesigned to form a much smaller number of interactive dashboards (possibly 15) that will report on approximately 200 data items. Day rate costs are required for the following:

Advice and support regarding the functionality and confirmation of Power BI. Including the publication of Power BI reports (security, navigation and Power BI desktop vs SharePoint publication).Development of the tabular reports and dashboards within Power BI.

Support and development of the current team to build their knowledge of Power BI to ensure they can undertake part of the required development, support ongoing BAU and

develop new reports in the future. Power BI training courses for the team will be sourced and supplied. Supplying these courses is not a deliverable of this work however it is expected that desk based help will be provided where required.

It is currently estimated that 200 days will be purchased to support this activity. Due to time scales, two people will be sourced to deliver the 200 days (100 days each). After initial prototyping the estimate will be revised therefore the final number may be higher or lower than 200 days.
