Abstract [en]

Today, the construction industry handles and analyzes a lot of data manually. This can be a very time-consuming process that could be improved by introducing Business Intelligence (BI). BI is a technology that could visualize the current status of a company automatically, with the help of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).MVP Software is a company that has developed a project management tool, ”Projektportalen”, for companies in the construction industry. MVP Software would like to enhance their application with BI functionality.This thesis researches, through a case study, how BI functionalities could be integrated into the web application Projektportalen. The case study consisted of interviews and explorations of Microsoft’s product Power BI.The final result is a list of desired BI functionalities in Projektportalen. The result also consists of a suggested updated architecture of Projektportalen for a Power BI integration and how an example dashboard could be created. Actual implementations in source code could be conducted in the future to integrate Power BI. The example dashboard could also be further developed into a dashboard prototype.

Abstract [sv]

Byggoch hantverksbranschen använder idag mycket manuell datahantering och manuell analys av data. Detta kan vara en tidskrävande process som skulle kunna effektiviseras genom Business Intelligence (BI). BI är en teknologi som automatiskt, med hjälp av nyckeltal, kan visa hur en verksamhet presterar och mår.MVP Software är ett företag som utvecklat projektverktyget ”Projektportalen” för byggoch hantverksbranschen. De vill nu utöka Projektportalen med BIfunktionalitet.Den här rapporten undersöker, genom en fallstudie, hur BI-funktionalitet skulle kunna integreras i webbapplikationen Projektportalen. Fallstudien bestod av intervjuer och enklare testkörningar av Microsofts produkt Power BI.Resultatet blev i slutändan en lista med önskvärda BI-funktionaliteter för Projektportalen. Resultatet består också av ett förslag på en uppdaterad applikationsarkitektur för att möjliggöra integrering av Power BI samt hur en enkel exempeldashboard skulle kunna skapas. Vidare tekniska undersökningar behöver göras för att ta reda på hur applikationens källkod ska utökas för att möjliggöra integrering av Power BI. Exempel-dashboarden skulle också kunna utvecklas vidare till en mer komplett dashboard-prototyp.
