At Nuuday – which originates from TDC and includes brands like YouSee and Telmore – they had a lot of reports in the form of PDFs, Power Points and Excel sheets. Nuuday’s data team was tasked with converting traditional reporting to dynamic reporting – mainly via Microsoft Power BI – to make reporting easier in the organization.
The various reports were sent out via mailing lists. This posed challenges for both senders because they had to maintain their mailing lists on an ongoing basis, and for the recipients, because they constantly had to spend time updating which mailing lists they had signed up for, accessing old emails to find the report they needed and finding out of who the report owners were.
During the process, the data team considered how reporting could be pooled, making it easy for the recipients to find the reports they needed. Philip Adolph, FP&A analyst at Nuuday, was part of the data team:
“We considered various solutions, including building our own website with links to reports. But after an employee of our data team was presented to Kapacity Information Hub at a Power BI café, we discovered that it was a product that suited our needs perfectly. ”
After a further presentation of the product, Nuuday had no doubt that it was the right solution. Now they could avoid the longer process it would be to build something from scratch. “It’s always easier when someone has done the work for one,” as Philip Adolph says.
