This case study describes the work achieved by element61 together with and at Sita Remediation to set-up a complete Business Intelligence & Management Reporting environment.
The Logistics and Supply Chain Devision wanted a system that allows a detailed profitability analysis with a higher granularity of cost and budget data then currently available in their application.
"Interactieve dashboards & analyses van Qlikview hebben reeds een change management proces teweeggebracht en helpt onze organisatie om de vooropgestelde groei verder te realiseren."
Euroports asked element61 to execute a thorough analysis of their existing Business Analytics environment, including BI, Planning & Forecasting and come up with a recommendation and a realistic approach to improve the existing situation both functionally and technically.
Isabel selected element61 for the execution of an extensive Performance Management Roadmap. This included giving recommendations & estimating budgets for a complete overhaul of the existing BI architecture, including software selection.
The BI program at Isabel consist of a number of main project iterations. The first two increments concerned mainly the actual platform usage & the expected product usage by customers.
Over recent years, De Lijn has deployed a large scaled data warehouse environment, currently serving over 300 users. The Business Intelligence environment on top of the data warehouse is used for reporting & analysis on subject areas like personnel behavior (driver productivity, employee sickness behavior, overtime worked, employee scheduling), ticketing information (both for operational and marketing purposes), vehicle operations (GPS data, driven kilometers, maintenance, fuel consumption, vehicle cost per vehicle age), financial data (budgets versus actual, subsidies from the government, money going to subcontracting…) and vehicle road accidents. Next to that the data warehouse also drives the De Lijn planning and budgeting application in IBM Cognos TM1.
Currently De Lijn is also building a case to implement a data warehouse appliance to keep supporting the fast-growing demand for more subject areas, more users and new types of analysis within the data warehouse.
Technologies used include IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, IBM Cognos TM1 and IBM Datastage on a DB/2 platform on iSeries.
