Auckland Council is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest Local Government, with a staff of over 8,000 people, a $3 billion annual budget and an incredibly diverse range of services. After Auckland Council was formed in 2010, they asked WhereScape to help with data integration for an Enterprise Data Warehouse. Each council came with its own systems, data and processes, so it was a big challenge. Teams across the council made big business decisions every day. But slow, inaccurate manual reporting used to take months with data having to be collected from across the different systems. This made decision making difficult and inefficient.
WhereScape developed a Data Warehouse solution and reporting platform using WhereScape RED as the foundation. The system integrates the data and transforms it into actionable information and insights, letting the council get on with running NZ’s biggest city.
WhereScape RED integrates data across the entire council organization, which has led to faster, more accurate business decision making. Dashboards customized for different council departments give staff access to clear, concise and relevant information, as they need it. The council team says it’s the foundation of their business – with access to complete and accurate information can focus on the business challenges facing them every day.
Our old tools didn’t give us the speed, action or quality we needed. Analysis and modelling in lots of different areas was difficult, but with WhereScape RED it’s easy to see our information as a cohesive whole.
