What we cover

Data volumes are growing and entirely new streams of data are becoming available, creating a need for organizations to empower more users to engage in critical analysis. Users need to be deeply analytical, understand their data, and have access to self-service analytical tools to improve decision making and gain valuable insights. Complex calculations, such as PMPM, can create challenges in self-service environments when strictly using relational data sources. We will demonstrate how Microsoft Analysis Services can be used to centralize complicated logic and enable business users to analyze data through various front-end platforms, while maintaining a single version of the truth. We will showcase PMPM, a vital metric used within the health industry for driving strategy and assessing competition.
