Challenge: Find a new business intelligence (BI) solution that could provide a single, more cost-efficient information delivery platform for decision makers.
Solution: Pentaho Data Integration and Pentaho Business Analytics replaced Oracle reporting and an IBM extraction, transformation and load (ETL) tool.
Brussels Airport, which houses 260 companies and employs 6,000 workers, needed a new reporting solution.
The airport wanted to replace both its Oracle reporting and an IBM Extraction Transformation and Load (ETL) tool.
The airport also sought to replace its current BI solution with a more cost-efficient, single information-delivery platform for decision makers.
Pentaho Data Integration analysis, reporting and dashboard tools are included in the solution.
The airport's finance, commercial, operations and Information Communication Technologies (ICT) departments will benefit from the agile BI capabilities, allowing greater iterative development between business user and developer.
These departments will now provide daily, weekly and monthly management reporting, ad hoc analysis and dashboards replacing Excel spreadsheets, and about 200 scheduled Hyperion reports. The pilot solution was delivered on target and within budget.
The airport estimates a cost savings of more than 350,000 euros.
Pentaho easily and cost-effectively provides daily snapshots from its Sybase IQ data warehouse as well as consistent reporting across the company.
