The Challenge: Needed Efficient Technology To Manage Incoming Data

CareFlight uses data-driven insights to save lives. The company sought to integrate their data from external (flight) and internal medical databases to create a dynamic data warehouse at low cost.

Hitachi Vantara's software was able to offer an affordable cost of ownership and an open-source development model.







CareFlight wanted to promote self-service business intelligence (BI) culture to improve operations and to allow users to explore data relationships. Additionally, CareFlight needed to fulfill their reporting obligations to the Australian NT Government on the delivery of the rescue service.

We discovered an awesome product and unleashed its full potential across our business.
