business intelligence and data warehousing
4FRONT provides complete end-to-end solutions looking after your data from source through to presentation to your users. For over a decade we’ve been using Microsoft’s SQL Server platform as the backbone of our products and have experience in using the original versions through to the latest in memory solutions. For projects that warrant Big Data solutions we are able to use SQL Server Native or SSAS. On top of this we layer our expertise in data extraction, transformation and loading. Our data warehouse technology then standardizes your information to provide a reliable ‘golden source’ of data to drive your business processes.
4FRONT understand the importance of making this data available quickly, efficiently and maximizing its ability to derive value for your business.
Business Intelligence is provided through our unique framework, based on the SQL Server Analysis Service. You will find that the intuitive and interactive user interfaces reduce the time and effort your teams need to make an impact.

4FRONT solutions provide you with the following technical benefits:
- Intranet based technologies for powerful performance
The quickest and most powerful way to get functionality through to your finance operation is by using your corporate intranet. 4FRONT solutions use your existing information delivery infrastructure to present functionality through comprehensive web-based user interfaces. This provides a high quality user experience and eliminates the costs associated with the installation and maintenance of desktop software.
- Flexible and reactive systems to target changing business needs
Solutions are modular and layered so that your system can grow and be modified with minimal impact. This is achieved through technologies such as web services and component based development.
