CalPERS completed the Business Intelligence and Data Analytics Program under budget, according to the most recent report from the chief information officer.

The project, budgeted for $585,300, provides analytical tools such as dashboards so users can solve complex business problems based on data. The project cost $553,000 in total and was completed over six years.

The project provided a request process and life cycle, nine dashboards and environments for them, and a data-driven governance framework. It also included a marketing plan, case studies and focus groups to gather data. Employees can now use self-service reports in 233 different extractions, and historical health data, up to 15 years old, can be interpreted for them.

According to the report, business benefits include:

  • Allow team members to review operations and historical insights and forecast trends
  • Accelerate time-to-insight and data access
  • Visualize key performance indicators and metrics in a single view
  • Focus on innovation and problem-solving rather than data collection
