In 2008, the company decided to overhaul its business intelligence (BI) system, with the goal of being more responsive and flexible to business needs by using more timely and detailed data and, ultimately, to offer better customer service.
Accenture and Avanade teamed up with Systembolaget AB to shape an Enterprise Data Warehouse, BI journey and platform. The implementation of the new EDW and BI solution is based on Microsoft technology and is delivered with a phased approach. Phasing is necessary due to the size and complexity of the solution, with over 5 TB of data and over 50 integration points.
- Better business insight via one information platform for reporting and analysis with one version of truth.
- Increased insight and control over operations with the ability of advanced analysis down to a very detailed level, based on up-to-date point-of-sale data.
- A flexible, extendible and cost-effective application architecture.
- A well documented and reliable data integration layer (using Avanade’s ETL Framework asset).
