S&T Russia optimizes reporting system
The challengeDanone utilises MicroStrategy as its data analysis and reporting system internationally. But until now there has been used an Excel as a reporting system, which drew its data from the centralized ERP system in France. As well as the obvious time delay, there have been also experienced difficulties in the form of irregular and erroneous reports. S&T, MicroStrategy’s leading partner in Russia and Danone’s long-standing IT service provider, was thus given the task of optimizing this business intelligence solution.
The projectS&T first created a logical model and developed the ETL processes (= Extract,
Transform, Load, procedures to process data of different structures
from different sources within one target database). Furthermore the necessary
hardware and software has been installed, and localization and trainings
undertaken so that Danone employees could oversee the system themselves
and develop it further.
Now the MicroStrategy system is used for all analysis and reporting, providing
the benefits of high quality data and fast processing. Complex data is
now evaluated four times faster than was possible prior to this project. The
Danone management team has so the latest real-time information.
