Fennia

Developing a concept model to support business operations

Fennia is a company providing insurance and financial services, owned by its customers. We have worked with Fennia across multiple information management projects. One of these projects was about creating the foundations for an information storage:

  • Concept definition and modelling made from the point of view of business operations
  • Planning and supporting a tendering process for acquiring a tool to maintain and develop the data- and concept model
  • Building business analytics metrics based on available data
  • Building transparent, traceable reporting; documenting integrations from the report all the way to the original data source
