Case Study: How a Global Media Conglomerate Transformed their Data Management Strategy for Better Business Decisions

Challenge

A global media conglomerate with two broadcast networks, 17 cable channels and more than 50 digital properties, continued to be challenged by industry trends of content viewership, cord cutting, the impact of digital on traditional advertising, and most importantly, the best way to measure these trends. To help measure and understand how to respond to the shift in the industry, our client was undertaking a transformation on how it collected, used and stored data.

Case Study: How a Commercial Distribution Company Leveraged Data Visualization for Better Analytics

Challenges

Our client, a commercial distribution company, had grown rapidly through a series of acquisitions. However, they were struggling to align critical business information to enable data-driven decision making. Vital Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) data originated from a variety of disparate data architectures and source systems. Key corporate stakeholders were making strategic decisions based on manually assembled reports, which lacked measurable consistency, data reliability, and metric transparency.

As a result, our client realized that they needed a way to visualize Key Performance Indicators across the organization. The organization had a vision to create near real-time dashboards, with a consistent user interface, across Sales, Finance, and Operations. Knowledgent was engaged to design and deliver an Enterprise Data Warehouse and data visualization solution, implemented in an Agile methodology.
