International Chemical Company Resolves Data Warehouse Issues
A large, international chemical company with data warehouse issues and insufficient business intelligence required new solutions to standardize across the enterprise. Internal proprietary data warehousing initiatives and business intelligence efforts were spotty and inconsistent. It was decided that they needed an enterprise solution for these capabilities to provide the competitive advantage gaining benefits of effective business intelligence. EI’s Business Intelligence Solutions services helped the client write an RFP and evaluate potential vendors, ultimately selecting SAP Business Warehouse as the COTS solution. EI’s Data Warehouse services helped establish the plans for migrating data to SAP BW and were involved in the specification of solutions to cleanse the data and improve customer data quality.
EI’s Program Management services provided steering and program oversight to the project through its implementation. As a result of partnering with EI, the client consolidated its disparate business intelligence offerings into a standardized industry leading platform. This allowed for business intelligence solutions on a level not previously possible, exposing insights that promised to enable greater competitive advantage in their market. In the process, enabling them to diagnose and understand their own operations and customer relationship management for opportunities to improve and modernize sales and operations.
