Our project was very challenging, both in scope and timeline. The only constant thing was change to say the least. it|venture helped us configuring and building various reports and dashboards to complement our implementation. Those required complex calculations in order to incorporate multiple customized concepts, on sometimes blurry requirements. When necessary, it|venture advised on feasibility and options or pointed out potential conflicts and/or dependencies. We wouldn’t have been able to get it done without their professional and knowledgeable team. As a lesson learnt I would advise to include them much earlier in the project in order to identify dependencies between report feasibility and config specifications.
