Starting up & Scaling up
Vijay Construction is a prominent Malaysia-based infrastructure services provider specializing in projects such as viaducts, flyovers, metros, bridges, pipelines, roads, ports, and more. To effectively monitor and manage their diverse range of infrastructure projects, Vijay Construction initiated a Business Intelligence (BI) project. Their primary goal was to track the status of ongoing projects using data from Postgres SQL and Excel sources.
The key objectives of Vijay Construction’s BI project were as follows:
Project Status Tracking: Develop a system to monitor the status of their various infrastructure projects.
Data Visualization: Create informative reports to track Total Activities, Total Critical Activities, Project Delays, Milestones, and other key performance indicators.
Drill-Down Capability: Implement slicers and filters to enable users to drill down into project data based on different time frames, such as date and month.
Data Integration: Gather and integrate data from Postgres SQL and Excel sources.
Vijay Construction’s BI initiative encompassed several important components:Technology Stack: Utilize Power BI for report generation and SQL for data retrieval and transformation.
Data Integration: Power BI used for data integration and visualization.
Data Transformation: SQL employed for data retrieval and transformation from Postgres SQL.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Project Progress Tracking Efficiency: Timeliness and accuracy of project status updates.
Data Visualization Effectiveness: User engagement with Power BI reports.
Drill-Down Capability Utilization: Frequency of users utilizing slicers and filters.
Data Integration Efficiency: Time taken for data integration from multiple sources.
