Status: 24th Mai 2024 l Reading time 3′

As Business Intelligence (BI) experts, we offer our customers the most efficient and modern solutions. For data visualisation, Apache Superset is an excellent solution that can be seamlessly integrated into our existing product portfolio for BI solutions. Read in this article why we decided in favour of the BI solution Apache Superset with our customer, the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).

Modern BI solution on an open source basis
The flexibility and customisability, combined with a wide range of functions, make Apache Superset a convincing software solution for companies of all sizes. Our choice of Apache Superset is not just a decision in favour of a tool, but also in favour of a philosophy. The open source approach allows us to create customised adaptations to proprietary solutions, which is why Apache Superset can be used flexibly. Another advantage and aspect that should not be neglected is the saving on licence costs compared to commercial software solutions.

Here is the most important information about Apache Superset:

  • Intuitive dashboards: Appealing dashboards can be created using an intuitive user interface.
  • Diverse visualisations: A wide range of appealing visualisations are available to optimally display data and make informed business decisions.
  • Code-free visualisations: Reports and dashboards can be created without programming knowledge.
  • Lightweight semantic layer: Data analysts can quickly define custom dimensions and metrics.
  • SQL optimisation and integration: A first-class SQL IDE and seamless integration with the most common relational databases.
  • Authentication integration: Easy integration with authentication backends such as databases, OpenID, LDAP, OAuth and REMOTE_USER.
  • Role model: A detailed authorisation and role concept enables the individual assignment of access rights to ensure that users receive the appropriate access to the data according to their functions.
  • Cloud-native: The software architecture ensures the best possible scalability and flexibility in operation. (Integration: Docker, Kubernetes, etc.)

Health insurance dashboard: A successful Apache Superset project on behalf of the FOPH
Apache Superset has proven itself in numerous industries and organisations as a versatile tool for better understanding data. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) is no exception. We are pleased to announce that we were able to go live with the “Health Insurance Dashboard” on behalf of the FOPH in March 2024.

The FOPH’s Apache Superset Dashboard offers an intuitive visualisation of health data in the area of compulsory health insurance, making it possible to grasp complex interrelationships at a glance.

Thanks to open source technology, we were able to offer the FOPH a solution that makes this valuable data accessible to the public without incurring high licence costs, which often represent an immense hurdle. Our sister company fence IT took over the hosting in accordance with the ISO 27001 standard, which could be implemented initially with minimal effort thanks to Dockerisation.

It was a pleasure for us to carry out this project from start to finish in a short realisation phase of less than 6 months. Thanks to the close collaboration, we were able to contribute our expertise and bring the project to a successful conclusion. If you would like to know more about this project, we will be happy to provide you with a reference contact on request to give you an insight into our experience and services.
