Improved business performance through a robust and scalable BI platform
Consumer Product Goods (CPG) enterprises see a huge inﬂux of data from various departments every day. Assimilating this business-critical data into useful information is a challenge, for which they need a robust and scalable Business Intelligence (BI) platform.
Here’s how Mindtree helped a German sports apparel manufacturer improve productivity through efficient business intelligence.
The customer was using a SAP BI platform to capture data from different units. They lacked a robust support system to integrate various interfaces. Monitoring and ﬁxing technical glitches on time was a big challenge, which directly impacted their business performance.
The customer lacked real-time data availability in their marketing, sales, operations and ﬁnancial reports. Inconsistent and poor quality data impacted decision making. Improper project governance delayed data aggregation and consolidation from regional offices. Lack of ownership for application maintenance and absence of standard processes, compounded the problems and affected the customer’s top line.
Mindtree integrated multiple applications on a global BI platform, supporting 70% of BI reports. We achieved project governance by setting up a delivery system that ensured 100% data availability. Mindtree implemented an incident management system, which brought down the number of errors and data mismatches in the reports.
The solution was scalable, cost-effective and aligned with the customer’s business objectives. We facilitated data loading and extraction across 22 countries on the Adirace Staging Architecture and provided 24/7 data load support.
