Case Study for Relacom

Today we generate our KPIs on a daily basis. Prior to deploying Analysis Services, back when we created them by cutting and pasting, we only updated our KPIs on a monthly basis.
– Ake Soderberg, Operational Project Manager, Relacom.

With more than 15,000 employees operating in 17 countries, Relacom provides managed services for wired and wireless networks. To accommodate its growth, the company needed a more robust and flexible business intelligence (BI) data warehouse, which had been hosted using Oracle and the UNIX operating system. The company migrated its BI data warehouse to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (64-bit) database software running on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition for 64-Bit Systems…

Situation: Vehicle dealerships operate in a low-margin market, requiring them to optimise business processes and maximise operational efficiency. With ever-diminishing loyalty among consumers, dealerships compete on price and on the quality of their customer service. In the face of these challenges, leading Dutch dealership Autodrome is using the latest technologies to streamline its operations. The company, which sells 12 brands of cars and commercial vehicles from six locations in the north of the Netherlands, also offers vehicle repairs and fleet rental services…

Solution: To address its operational challenges, Autodrome decided to deploy RPMcar BackOffice, a reporting, analytics, and dashboard tool that optimises the car sales and delivery process and gives insight into what is happening in the dealership. The RPMcar BackOffice solution is based on a Microsoft® infrastructure, including Windows Server® 2003 operating system, Microsoft SQL Server® 2005 database software, and the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

Case Study on MAXIMUS

Life is easier for everyone if the information from these different systems can be united in a single repository, and that’s what we’ve done with SQL Server.”
Nora Paape, Vice President of the Educational Services Division, MAXIMUS.

Situation: For more than 30 years, MAXIMUS has been committed to its mission of “Helping Government Serve the People.” The company’s 5,500 employees located in more than 280 offices in the United States, Canada, and Australia, provide services to a spectrum of government organizations including some 2,000 school districts, 300 courts, 100 colleges and universities, and 80 airports. The MAXIMUS Web-based TIENET application suite is valued by school districts because it provides a direct connection between curriculum and assessment for individual and groups of students in both regular and special education…

Solution: Building upon Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 database software, and other elements of the Microsoft Application Platform, MAXIMUS has created a BI data mart integration solution for its TIENET users. Data mart information is aggregated into multidimensional cubes for faster online transaction processing (OLAP) queries, using SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services, the OLAP component in SQL Server. The solution runs on the Windows Server® 2003 Enterprise Edition operating system. The company chose to create an OLAP data mart, rather than expand upon reporting already offered in the TIENET OLTP solution, for a number of reasons, including the need to not slow the OLTP production database by running OLAP queries against it…
