Project setup

One of our good clients is a company active in the energy & utilities sector. They provide support for the development of the liberalized Belgian energy market, playing a key role as an information provider. They do this by providing reliable and high-quality services on a centralized, federal platform. Our client called on us to assist in setting up a whole new data environment. The aim of this project was the uniformization and centralization of communication within the market. It was decided the best approach was to set up a data store to which the involved parties have direct access.

How did we take on this challenge? A team of Trilations consultants performed an in-depth analysis with the different stakeholders to establish the data needed to populate the data store. They translated the business requirements into the right set of functional requirements. These were then communicated to the external developers. Once developed our consultants performed extensive testing of the new platform. After that they drew up new and optimized procedures for the distribution system operators to access data and set up reports. To conclude the project our consultants made sure the operators were fully on board with the new procedures by working with them in a series of workshops.

In the end our BI analysts achieved three key elements to make this a succesful project:

  1. They defined and set up an innovative data model.
  2. They clearly communicated the functional requirements to the external developers.
  3. They trained the main users within the organizations of the distribution system operators efficiently and on time.
