Beeline had developed a BI/DW solution that has been in place for many years, however, executives did not feel they were getting the answers to the questions they needed. About 18 months ago, Beeline implemented a financial data warehouse that is now being used for operational activities (Invoicing). Performance issues, technology barriers and technical limitations of staff were plaguing Beeline when they called Teknion to help them assess their current situation. We implemented the future state roadmap, which included WhereScape and a replacement data warehouse.
Teknion’s solution for Beeline involved establishing a collaborative team consisting of a BI Solutions Architect and two Senior Consultants to work alongside a Beeline technical team to implement the first phase of the project. Teknion’s experience building Data Warehouses and using the WhereScape Red product provided the needed mentoring for Beeline to establish their best practices and architectural foundation for continuing the project.
