Council of Europe aids budget management with BI system

The Council of Europe is implementing a new business intelligence system to help improve budget management.

For the past 20 years, the council has evolved to become a political anchor and human rights watchdog, as well as a resource for aiding political, legal and constitutional reform in line with wider European economic reform.  

The council has gone to Information Builders to supply its WebFocus platform to manage its spending, which covers work in 46 countries.

Nigel Lassman, project manager at the Council of Europe, said, “We wanted a system that could accurately drill down through the information, and which had the ability to export data to a wide range of reporting formats.”

Lassman said the organisation needed the new system as it was generating and managing a lot of information that could not be rationalised quickly enough to be used to aid business decisions effectively.

The concept of ROI in this case was more in terms of support and efficiency than financial gain, he said, though the number of working days the organisation would now save from the new system was “far from insignificant”.
