Our Challenge

Full Stack Technology Platform Creation

A life sciences company wanted to implement a single technology platform that supported tight integration with multiple underlying general ledgers and also support world class Sales Analytics, Period Close Consolidation and Planning applications. Key objectives were to enhance the integrity and consistency of metadata/data relationships across multiple systems, simplify systems maintenance, increase the timeliness of data availability to senior management, and establish a single version of the truth for all actual data across multiple systems.

Our Solution

Business Intelligence Adoption

Vaco provided expert senior project management support with detailed knowledge of new to market Business Intelligence (BI) and Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) implementations, BI & EPM SOW’s, and change orders. In addition, Vaco consulted on how to leverage and collaborate with vendor provided implementation services, project plan management, team communications, issue management and the ability to work with both business and IT sponsors.

The client received recommendations and guidance on how to communicate project status to the Executive Steering Committee, track issues, realize a higher than anticipated discount on the purchase of additional software, and effectively mediate and request tens of thousands of dollars in consulting service credits as an early adopter of a new BI and EPM technology platform.
