Customer Need / Business Driver
The Medical Appliances & Equipment Manufacturer analytics team used SAP Hana and BODS as an integration service to load their data warehouse.Customer wanted to make the move to cloud infrastructure to reduce the overhead costs and were looking at suitable cloud solutions that would replace their existing data platform and integration platform. This replacement would require a rebuild of their ETL adaptors for their analytical models in Finance, COPA, SCM, and CRM Models.
Medical Appliances & Equipment Manufacturer selected the Microsoft Azure SQL Server as a cloud database solution and SSIS as their Data Integration tool.
