Business Challenge

Our customer, a global audit and consultancy company, maintained large amounts of business-critical data in multiple sources used by dissimilar business systems. The separate databases were scattered across the enterprise and limited access to data for business units located in different corners of the world. Under such conditions, static reporting was inhibited whereas running ad-hoc reporting was hardly possible.

Besides, most essential business operations were manual and could last almost forever – generating analytical reports took up to 15 hours. Multiply that by the size of the company – 100,000+ employees using the systems on a daily basis! This directly influenced the agility of the whole enterprise, making business processes unacceptably slow. The customer needed to revise its approach to data warehousing and processing completely.

Solution

As a long-time vendor of SAP solutions with in-depth expertise in all SAP products, Infopulse implemented a single 3 TB Data Warehouse based on SAP HANA seamlessly integrated with the existing BI, Data Science, and internal financial systems. We built an API for these external systems that can source aggregated data from a centralized DWH. On top of that, we also implemented Data Lake for Data Scientists based on Microsoft Azure and Databricks, which greatly simplifies data extraction and processing.

All data, gathered from multiple enterprise systems including SAP S/4HANA, SAP BPC, CRM, various planning and other business systems, is fine-tuned, cleansed and prepared according to a specific query, thus providing users with the customized results.
