UpdatesCloudFronts starts work with Aditya Birla Online Fashion for Power BI!

ABOF – Aditya Birla Online Fashion Pvt. Ltd, is an online one-stop fashion portal for apparel, footwear and accessories for men and women. ABOF aims to offer a wide but curated range of merchandise and a differentiated shopping experience that can compete with the best in the world.

ABOF had a requirement to architect their data models to ensure reporting and business intelligence requirements are addressed in a structured manner and to allow their senior management to run reporting and get drill down analytics from a single interface. They did not want users to be making ‘sql queries’ into their data warehouse.

ABOF has approached & selected CloudFronts to develop a high level system architecture that would leverage the Microsoft Power BI platform to connect to their data warehouse and develop key reports with drill down capabilities, allowing their users to get quick results through the Power BI interface! Power BI Q & A feature is also a big part of this exercise, allowing users to type normal sentences to get quick numbers and charts at their fingertips ! No more..’Select * from’ queries.

CloudFronts and ABOF’s BI teams kicked off this mission critical project earlier this week and have been working together to develop an SSAS tabular model that would be refreshed in real time, to enable users to get valuable, real time insights into their fast moving ecommerce business.

The proposed architecture is highlighted below –


CloudFronts is also playing a consulting role in this project and guiding the ABOF team to develop the models and reports so that they can be self-reliant going forward as well. The next phase is planned after this and will focus on rich charts and dashboards to build on top of the SSAS Tabular models!
