Abstract

This MQP describes the prototype of a newly developed system designed to collaborate with the Business Intelligence Strategy at The Hanover Insurance Group. The requirements and business process flows included in the system were gathered in interviews with Hanover employees and from report creation documentation kept by the Management Information Systems team at Hanover. The system provides information for the MIS team at Hanover on commonalities on data manipulation, facilitating the automation of the reporting procedures and mitigating the risks from high- touch processing. The system provides Hanover employees with simplified procedures to extract the data for their reports. The prototype was built in MS Access supplemented by wiki pages for demonstration purposes.
