ICS – The BI Expert Reinforces Microsoft Footprint in Legal Sector Tuesday 24 April 2007 PDF Print Law firm selects RSinteract & Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Manchester, UK, April 24, 2007 - Today ICS Ltd announced the news of their new RSinteract customer in the Legal Sector, Browne Jacobson; one of the largest and most successful law firms in the Midlands. The project scope includes the design and implementation of a data warehouse and the deployment of RSinteract which will complete the solution by offering a full self-service reporting interface for both the business users and information analysts. Peter Birley, IT Director of Browne Jacobson explained, “In order to meet the ongoing demands for relevant and timely information from both our internal and external customers it was essential that we addressed our Business Intelligence strategy and following a review with ICS Ltd we have chosen to go down the Microsoft BI route. We also wanted to 'push' data to our users giving them a self-service capability and the RSinteract product sitting on top of the Microsoft platform will enable us to achieve that goal. We are excited that this will enable us to grow the already leading and innovative position we hold in our marketplace" “This project stemmed from a series of issues relating to IT resource that was required to satisfy the business’s BI needs, which in turn, was hindering the progress in other IT projects” said Wayne Gallaway, COO of ICS. “This win underscores the competitive advantage that is afforded by investing in Microsoft BI technology. Coupled with RSinteract, it delivers a real challenge to traditional Business Intelligence tools, by empowering end users in decision support at all levels of the organisation”. RSinteract is designed to extend the reach of Business Intelligence across the business enterprise by providing an easy to use standard web browser front end for business users and information professionals to build and interact with Reporting Services reports dynamically. Giving access to SQL Server Analysis Services cubes as well as relational data, the solution presents dynamic functionality for end users who benefit from a self serve model enabling them to design, build, publish and interact with their reports. - ends - About ICS ICS - The Microsoft Business Intelligence Expert As a leading Microsoft Business Intelligence consultancy ICS (www.icsltd-uk.com) is focussed on helping mid-market and enterprise organisations better exploit their investment in BI technology.
