We partnered with Blue Margin to create an environment where we could put data from 18 companies and disparate systems into a single repository, and build reports as an interim scaffolding while we integrate the ecosystem.  As I'm building out a scalable platform, I still need to have a consolidated view.  Otherwise, a company might wait years to consolidate their ERP systems before gaining a unified view of operations.

The greatest impact has been on the manufacturing side. The Efficiency and Utilization Report eliminated a workbook with multiple data sources.  We used to generate that report once per month, limiting our ability to react.  We do it daily now.  We adjust as we go, making our response much closer to the actual event, which has increased production

"It is because of all of your hard work over the last year that we have such a great DW and BI foundation in place to be able to accomplish a report like Service Orders so quickly.  Your talent extends well beyond data expertise and we are fortunate to have you lead our DW development efforts.”
