    Even providers that have the most mature data analytic capabilities struggle to keep up with the never ending demand for information from clinicians and administrators endeavoring to deliver the highest level of health outcomes at an affordable cost. It is difficult understanding and keeping track of the interrelationship of the complex healthcare IT landscape, the initiatives and reporting requirements along with all the data artifacts that have been established. We have developed tools and processes to curate all of this information, establish the relationships, and move the data rapidly to meet the needs of your organization..

    Here are the 6 ways we do this:
    - Capture and catalog the inventory of reports and metrics
    - Capture and catalog the initiatives, terms, and their associated metrics and definitions
    - Tie all of this to the metadata of the systems providing the data
    - Bring trust and understanding to the data and metrics for clinicians and stakeholders to report on
    - Expose all these data analytics artifacts in a searchable way
    - Speed the movement of data from the encounter to the dashboard

  • Get your business frictionless with clean data Recorded: Jul 16 2019 48 mins
    Scott Wenzel Sr. Value Engineer & Matt Creason Sr. Value Engineer at Syniti
    You have just completed your data project as part of a data migration, upgrading to S/4HANA, a divestiture, or other data transformation. Congratulations! These types of initiatives can be difficult and costly. And now that it is over or well underway, how do you keep your data clean and know that you always have business-ready data?

    Poor data quality can affect organizations in many ways - financially, operational efficiency, brand recognition, regulatory compliance, and so on. We will show you how you can reduce operating cost up to 40%, reduce your time spent researching and resolving data errors, increase your revenue by 15-20% as well as improve visibility into your overall data quality.

    During our session, we will discuss how to:
    • Gain a complete view of information by accessing and measuring data at any scale and from any source
    • Continuously assess the trustworthiness of information and determine whether it’s fit to use based on its quality
    • Analyze how data quality affects your business processes and performance by discovering, defining, and monitoring data quality levels
    • Reduce costly data errors and staff time required for data quality
    • Improve data quality visibility and speed error resolution
    • Accelerates response times with automatic error alerts sent to responsible data owners

    Remember, clean data is critical for business just as clean water is essential to life. Business runs on business processes; business processes run on data. The processes that run your business cannot run efficiently without clean data.
  • You Can't Make Good Business Decisions Today with Yesterday's Data Recorded: Feb 21 2019 45 mins
    Larry Romireo at EFCO Corporation & Giacomo Lorenzin, Managing Director, Direct Solutions at BackOffice Associates
    There is a growing demand for high-speed analytic database systems and platforms where data can be processed at lightning speed for business decision-making. However, is that data up-to-date? If the process to update that data is batch or overnight, the data delivery may be fast, but the information may be outdated which can result in error-prone reporting and ineffective (or disastrous) business decisions.

    For successful analytics it’s important to move data in real time from multiple systems, including legacy databases, so that combined data can be properly presented in a uniform way.

    Change Data Capture is a technology employed in the best data replication solutions to minimize the amount of time and resources necessary to update data changes from one system to another. By propagating only what’s changed since the last check on the source system, minimal data is passed between systems in order to ensure identical copies of data on both source and target.

    Change Data Capture is frequently used to select and update copies of key data for operational reasons such as maintaining activity on separate systems that interact externally with customers or vendors, or remote systems that interact with corporate databases. However, it is also useful to maintain freshly updated data in systems that are used extensively for non-transactional activity, such as for analysis, reporting and data warehousing.

    Main points:
    1.Retrieving information from any source database for your analytic system
    2.Specialized and configured support to load data into the analytic system
    3.Automatically prepare and map the data between systems, saving time and resources
    4.Best-in-class process to automatically and continuously update data
    5.Change Data Capture saves time, money and effort through efficient and cost-effective technology
  • What are my options to migrate to SAP S/4HANA? Recorded: Jan 10 2019 60 mins
    Gerd Danner from SAP & Frank Schuler from BackOffice Associates
    Anyone planning a move to SAP S/4HANA will want to optimise their investment to achieve full business benefits from day one. This means getting it right from outset — starting with the migration. Yet data migration is often not highlighted as a key work stream in S/4HANA projects. So, considering so many data migration projects run over time and/or over budget, the question to ask is how is your business planning to do this?

    This informative webinar will discuss the various migration options available and share best practice customer cases.

    Presenters:
    Gerd Danner Vice President EMEA Centre of Excellence for Information Management at SAP

    Frank Schuler SAP Mentor and Vice President SAP Technical Architecture with BackOffice Associates
  • Go Green or Go Brown: Which S/4HANA Road is Right For You? Recorded: Nov 6 2018 43 mins
    Owen Pettiford and Frank Schuler
    With SAP ERP sitting at the core of your business and having invested in it over a number of years it can seem that Converting it to S/4HANA (known as a Brownfield project) is the easiest and lowest risk path to S/4HANA. However a growing number of organisations are discovering that the further they get into planning for their Brownfield project to more attractive starting with a fresh slate becomes and some are changing their plans to doing a New implementation (known as a Greenfield project). This webinar given by 2 SAP Mentors, will describe the key risks and benefits of each approach and highlight where BackOffice Associates can help to de-risk the journey with its services and software.
