The Challenge: Condense Data Into Efficient Reports
Sopra Steria, a European leader in digital transformation, provides a comprehensive portfolio spanning consulting, systems integration, industry-specific solutions, infrastructure management and business process services. Sopra Steria wanted to aggregate data from many sources of their project planning platform and information system.
Furthermore, the company sought to produce synthetic consolidation reports dedicated to the steering teams, operational departments, and group executive. The project would provide complementary information to existing business intelligence reports. These reports would be delivered to project teams by Sopra Steria’s information system. Since there are thousands of BI users who are involved in Sopra Steria’s project management, the company needed simple filtering data management per profile and seniority level.
Pentaho is simplifying, standardizing and governing data, erasing complicated processes.
