Tjene’s combined industry and consulting experience in the corporate real estate space colors every project – no matter the type – with industry standards and best practices. Tjene is also current; participating in speaking engagements at conferences and as active members of Corenet. At Tjene, Real Estate runs deep, and advisory is simply a natural occurrence with every engagement.
Like any successful project, it is crucial that the groundwork be surveyed before implementation. Software implementation provides a valuable opportunity where processes can be reassessed. Business process alignment across entities should be completed before software design. Tjene uses industry expertise and knowledge of each products strengths, to help re-engineer business processes to world class practices. Streamlined business processes optimizes any software implementation while making execution clear and straight forward. In parallel to process re-engineering, early adoption of company wide data definitions can ensure powerful metrics and meaningful insight in the final product. Data harmonization workshops and templates are effective tools in creating robust data standards. Assessment of process streamlining and data harmonization efforts are essential for accurate project planning and quick turn around times.
As technology and business requirements advance over time, technology implementations continue to grow in scope and complexity. As a result, implementation teams may have difficulty in identifying and understanding the desired end product.
Tjene’s methodology focuses on three aspects for a more successful implementation
Small Teams – Tjene focuses on providing small, localized, and dedicated teams to serve our clients. Through our experience, the small, localized teams are able to work as a single, cohesive unit while maintaining deep communication with the clients with minimal management overhead.
Agile Approach – Tjene follows an Agile model with greater client partnership in providing a successful technology implementation. At the onset of a project, the project team will work with the client to identify and prioritize all critical items. The team will split critical items into small, manageable sprints in order to quickly and frequently develop new prototypes to be reviewed with the client. At the end of each sprint, the team will review the prototype, identify areas of improvement, and re-prioritize task items for subsequent sprints.
Tools – In order to manage complex technology implementations, Tjene teams are experts in industry leading project lifecycle tools such as TFS. These tools are used to ensure that all requirements and development tasks are finalized without any missed communications.
A successful deployment is only the first step towards the enterprise-wide adoption of a new software solution. The Tjene Shared Services team aims to provide our clients the post-implementation support to ensure speedy organizational acceptance and ROI of the system.
Our Shared Services team consists of experienced consultants and developers that work out of our local offices. The local offices allow the teams to work as a cohesive unit, regularly sharing best practices and developing skills through experience. This ensures that clients will receive expert support based on their business need as well as industry best practices through our experience at many clients.
The importance of good quality data speaks for itself. The challenging question that is often asked but not necessarily thoroughly evaluated is how to approach and build a delivery system that blends data from various sources and transforms the data to output good, quality data into any application.
Our approach to the solution was to take our years of experience working with our clients, understanding their needs, and applying industry best practices to develop a data management solution that is quick to implement, portable, scalable and secure.
The Tjene Data Management solution provides our clients the flexibility to extract their data from various source systems (Oracle, Microsoft, Access, Excel, flat files) into a single staging area to apply business and industry specific rules to blend the data. The end result is production ready, high quality data that is suitable for loading into the application.
Given the multiple modules that TRIRIGA offers, the Tjene Data Management solution can easily integrate additional modules as they come online, whether simultaneously or gradually. Our goal is to provide a mature, robust solution that can work with any version of TRIRIGA.
The landscape for enterprise reporting has drastically changed in a short period of time. No longer are static, “canned” reports, KPIs and dashboards acceptable data visualizations that provide enough information for businesses to gain a better understanding of their business. The expectation now is for greater data interaction through visualization tools that enable analysts to build multiple views using the same data set with a quick turn around timeframe. Current enterprise solutions still require dedicated report developers with a high level degree of technical know how in order to build reports and dashboards to business specifications.
The reporting capabilities in TRIRIGA are similarly standard, static, “canned” reports and built-in drivers to view customizable BIRT-based reports. However, these types of reporting solutions follow the status quo and require highly skilled report developers to build the customized BIRT-based reports.
Realizing that the current reporting capabilities in TRIRIGA will not follow the trend of hands-on interactivity through on-the-fly data visualizations, Tjene made significant investments to determine what the best alterative reporting solution is in the market that fits the current demands of businesses today. We determined that Tableau Software, the current market leader in the Business Intelligence industry according to Gartner (2015), is a perfect fit to meet the needs of our clients.
