Quick, flexible conversion to the new data warehouse and IBM Cognos Analytics, including the migration of all data

Advising approach

Technical and content optimization of the reports in ongoing operation, improved rights and access concept

Customer benefits and solution

High-performance, easy analyses for the departments, even with linked data elements

valantic’s consultants understood the logic changes in the back end in the shortest possible time. The reports used had to be adapted to the new data warehouse, which meant that the report data changed logically and structurally. At the same time, Sympany and valantic tested the migrated reports for possibilities for technical improvement. Therefore, there was an adjustment on both the technical and content levels. The departments accepted the reports during the migration phase, in parallel with ongoing daily business. All analytic information was thus always available and could be used by the business without restriction.

Sympany and valantic tackled the migration to the new data warehouse successfully and with minimal effort for the departments. Reporting is stable and runs in the new environment to users’ complete satisfaction.
