I can recommend Scandic Fusion as an implementation partner for anyone who values out-of-the-box thinking, proactiveness, and ability to bring projects to delivery even in challenging situations.
We started working together with Scandic Fusion in 2017, heavily focusing on interactive dashboarding in SAP BO on top of BW BEx queries and HANA calculation views, covering the needs of Finance & Control, HR, Sales & Loyalty, Logistics, Inventory, Category, and assortment management.
A great example of our collaboration with Scandic Fusion is the implementation of SAC in 2020 for Retail financial planning at monthly granularity for quarterly Rolling forecast, Annual Target, and Long Term Planning cycles. During the implementation phase, Scandic Fusion provided end-user and power-user training to help RIMI build internal SAC planning know-how. Following its success, RIMI built a financial planning solution internally for its real-estate business, with Scandic Fusion as its advisor. Both solutions are in production use, and Scandic Fusion continues to support RIMI by covering the backlog of end-user-generated change requests for improvements.

Scandic Fusion has become our one stop shop for all Business Intelligence related questions. Together with Scandic Fusion we built our data warehouse and analytics environment from ground zero. They handled all phases of the project - architecture, development, testing and deployment - applying best industry practices, while carefully considering our own specific business needs. We chose industry leading tools- Google Cloud Platform, DBT and Power BI. Scandic Fusion's extensive knowledge of these tools allowed them to deliver a solutions that matched our hybrid custom model - having data warehouse on cloud, but analytics environment on premises. Despite having many moving parts in the final data flow, the infrastructure is stable and low maintenance. Since project launch, we have successfully onboarded different business stakeholders - operations, finance, marketing and others. With each stakeholders` onboarding Scandic Fusion allocated a specialist with the relevant experience and business expertise to ensure a smooth and efficient process. Alongside their great technical knowledge, they also went the extra mile to understand our business model and they find ways to communicate complicated concepts in a straightforward manner. Couldn't recommend Scandic Fusion more!
Scandic Fusion has been our partner on DWH, BI & related components since this was first established in PGS several years ago. The original implementation was running on an on-prem application stack the first years, with new sources from several different technical platforms being added over time. With the advancements in cloud technology, it was decided to make the move and take advantage of these possibilities. A full lift-and-shift of complete architecture was successfully performed, using Google Cloud Platform and Power BI cloud native components only. This dramatically increased the data usage in PGS, while reducing outage risk and maintenance cost. Through the numerous projects we have cooperated on, Scandic Fusion has been advising on architecture, doing much of the project coordination including liaising with business users, in addition to performing the majority of the development work.
