"Target is a leading provider of software solutions and services to a client base of businesses within the consumer and commercial finance sectors. With over 28 years experience, it has built a reputation for delivering leading edge business solutions, from bespoke software through to outsourcing and consultancy.
One element of Targets solutions is to provide a data warehouse, over our existing systems and other related systems.
Target enlisted Purple Frog to assist in designing and building a new prototype data warehouse in SQL Server using SSIS and SSAS. The requirements included type 2, 3 & 6 slowly changing dimensions, OLAP cubes and deployment procedures to assist in managing our business model.
Purple Frog are professional and friendly. They have proved an excellent knowledge in both the technical design expertise to translate our requirements into a working solution and the software tools with which to build the solution. They have met the deadlines we agreed and were also amiable to slight movements in those deadlines.
We would have no reservations in recommending Purple Frog to other businesses with data warehousing requirements and would be happy to use Purple Frog again in the future."Martyn Rogers, Project Manager, Target Group
"Thanks for the support you have given us through the year –the work you do and speed with which you react to problems is fantastic.John Nother, CTO, Card Factory
Glad to have you as our partner."
"I have worked with Purple Frog on two separate projects, at Target Group and Principality, and cannot recommend them highly enough.
The depth of their technical skill in all manner of BI technologies is matched by their ability to quickly get to grips with the dynamics of the core business and propose and develop innovative solutions.
Alex [Lead consultant on the project] is a good team player who also has the strength to take independent and decisive action when needed, he can be relied upon to serve as both part of a development team or lead a large implementation.
Organised in his day to day role and structured in his approach to managing complexity he also brings to bear a pragmatic and holistic view of what you are trying to achieve.
Technically he is nothing short of an MDX/OLAP/SQL guru who can develop an entire end to end BI solution.
Yes, we would work with Purple Frog again..."Geoff Barber, Head of Financial MI Systems, Principality Building Society
"Purple Frog helped us redesign our reporting platform from a static Crystal Reports set to a more interactive Reporting Services system. They were quick to understand our business needs and designed an impressive system that we are proud to showcase. We were very pleased with their technical knowledge, professionalism and the quality of the end product. We are happy to recommend Purple Frog’s services to others."Darren Thorpe, Director of Software Development, Strategic Thought
"Purple Frog enabled Liberty to rapidly implement a full Business Intelligence suite across our business; from the design of our Data Warehouse and Cubes through to the deployment of reports and KPI dashboards into our Sharepoint portal. Purple Frog remained professional and flexible throughout, understanding our requirements very quickly and surpassing all expectations. I had no hesitation in re-employing Purple Frog for the next phase of the project."Alex Smith, Head of Management Information, Liberty Syndicates
