As Business Intelligence Analyst you provide internal and external customers best-in-class information to support business decisions. Important aspects are dashboard reporting, (advanced) analytics, data management (incl. DWH) and customer specific BI solutions. You will be reporting to the Manager Finance & Control.
Your main tasks
Within Container Centralen, the BI team was introduced 3 years ago to provide the right insights for better decision taking. Since then the journey of BI focused on building the BI data exploration platform with Qlik as primary tooling. Dashboards have been introduced to optimize CC’s logistical processes. Customer reporting has also taken off to minimize RTI usage and forecast future customer demand (for RTI’s). In essence BI converts data into information -presented in a standardized, visual way- which is used for steering internally or by customers.
BI therewith is at the core of CC’s strategy to connect supply chains and make vendors, retailers, transporters and other logistical service providers collaborate as one. BI contributes by the following activities:
- Data processing/enrichment/algorithm building
- Information delivery
Together with IT, BI owns the datawarehouse (DWH), which is a Microsoft BI stack. Therefore you will -on a daily basis- be responsible for ensuring all provided data, queries and reports are up-to-date and correct. In case of DWH problems (system breakdown, query errors, etc.) you will liaise with the IT team and external consultants to solve matters. On ad hoc basis you will provide queries for which you use SQL. And last but not least you will be involved in building & ensuring that CC’s data lake is set up, maintained and managed accurately.
Based on this solid data foundation, you will interface with CC’s business representatives to validate business requests and built reporting solutions. In order to be effective you will truly invest in understanding complex supply chain processes incl the data registered (a.o. scans). You will design, set up, update & maintain dashboards (Qlik View), scorecards, data cubes/queries and portals. BI information is also shared with customers for which you develop and maintain the tooling (Nd printing/Qlik Sense). You are also responsible that BI provides a “single source of truth” and “single version of the truth”. In order to support decision taking BI is building algorithms and enrich data a.o. via webscraping.
To fulfil your tasks you will make use of your project management skills. Many times you will be involved in organizational initiatives. You will partner up with the business on topics like data governance, reporting standards, data quality, reporting tools, hierarchy management and KPI’s.
