New enhancements provide for accelerated BI implementations with improved solution quality
WARREN, NJ, April 2, 2008: MindTree Ltd., a global IT and R&D services company, today announced enhancements to the RUBIC (Re Usable Business Intelligence Components) solution framework offered by its Business Intelligence (BI) & Data Warehousing (DW) practice. With several RUBIC customer deployments realizing reductions in development time by up to 40%, the expanded stack now includes a Master Data Management (MDM) framework as well as multiple process and industry-specific domain components.
MindTree¹s RUBIC framework is a set of components that provide BI implementations with structured approaches to manage various design aspects, increase the quality of the solution and substantially save time to market. RUBIC fixes two specific pain points in a typical BI &DW engagement 1) high data integration effort - by providing reuse of code in the data integration layer and 2) business solution value enhancement providing a platform for ensuring business need coverage.
The RUBIC MDM framework provides for a complete 3-tier MDM application that can cater to the specific customer needs and features an intuitive GUI layer, a business logic layer, and a business data model. Leveraging MindTree¹s deep understanding of business processes and analytical needs in diverse domains, RUBIC now includes domain components that address specific analytic needs in areas such as supplier spend, profitability and point of sale.
MindTree¹s RUBIC solution framework was put to use in helping Allergan, a premier global specialty pharmaceutical and medical technology company, implement a BI solution. KT Rajan, director of operations, IS and Projects, Allergan describes RUBIC: "It's a scientific approach of handling and managing data that enables us to store data right from the year 2002, which was not possible before. Most importantly, the quality of decision-making has improved tremendously and the solution has led to more reliability and
