MIP - Information at the Speed of Business

MIP builds Agile Data Warehousing (DW) and Business Intelligence (BI) Solutions. For many years now DW/BI implementations have suffered from slow, costly development cycles, expensive, stove pipe technologies and high cost of resources, resulting in an inflexible delivery that takes months to achieve and cannot easily adapt to rapidly changing business needs. The benefits of the Agile Methodology are sorely needed. MIP is uniquely capable of applying Agile to solve the specific challenges of DW/BI implementations - there are vital aspects to these solutions that require an adaptation of Agile, and MIP has perfected these techniques allowing customers to reap all the benefits of Agile whilst still addressing the unique needs of DW and BI implementations.
