FedNot (Royal Federation of the Belgian Notariat) supports the notary offices with legal advice, office management, IT solutions, training, and information for the public.
DataSight / Cronos Public started their collaboration with FedNot in November 2020 from the request to assess the reporting needs between FedNot and its partners/ecosystem (internal and external). This has grown towards a strong partnership where DataSight / Cronos Public is the main advisor concerning the entire Data Platform and all reporting use cases on top of this.
To facilitate the data-driven way of working, FedNot has chosen to work with Google technology. All data sources are integrated on the GCP platform: real-time data pipelines are moved into a dimensional model serving the self-service layer as well as business dashboards. A differentiator in this decision is the seamless cloud-based integration of front-end (Looker) and back-end (BigQuery) on one hand, but most of all the centrally governed layer approach of Looker, providing all functional and technical features to support all defined use cases.
The idea is to turn around the “on request” way of working between the business and BI team towards an “always on” way of working, introducing a well-governed self-service layer next to dynamic dashboards and scheduled reports. From there all users can supply themselves with answers to business questions, as well as creating strategic insights.
