Case Study: Darigold - Oracle Transportation Management (OTM Cloud) Analytics

Deploy and Integrate KPI Cloud Analytics for Oracle Transportation Management (OTM Cloud) with existing On-premises OBIA environment

About Darigold


Darigold is a 250+ Million US Dairy Agricultural manufacturing and marketing company based in Seattle with over 1,250 employees.

Customer Need / Business Driver

Darigold’s Transportation Management System users were struggling to consolidate their Delivery or Shipment Information with existing Sales & Manufacturing data and derive meaningful analytical insights and dashboards. They had an existing extraction process with limited capability with five days of data extraction and could not provide historical insights.


Selection Process

Darigold selected KPI over multiple vendors through a rigorous RFP process. KPI’s expertise in Cloud Technologies, Pre-built Accelerators, OTM, EBD, OBIA, and OBIEE was the key differentiator for Darigold. In addition, Darigold chose KPI’s blended shore model to minimize the cost and risk associated with the engagement.

What KPI Delivered

Integrated KPI Cloud Analytics for OTM with OBIA-OBIEE system which widely enabled users to get quick insights on a single platform. KPI designed and delivered a complex solution with this integration approach.

KPI delivered an automated data replication process from KPI’s Cloud Analytics ETL Framework to load data to the on-premises environment and which was further used to load into the integrated OBIA warehouse. KPI also delivered nine seven distinct OTM Process-specific custom subject areas to cover most of the Darigold OTM business functionality.
