City of Vantaa drives for Digitalization with WhereScape

Using WhereScape Data Warehouse Automation and Business Intelligence solutions, the City of Vantaa, Finland, has greatly expanded the digitalization of important information about the city in an effort to make information transparent for all stakeholders, and to bring citizens, the council and city officers together.

The Challenge

Stakeholders needed citizens, the council and city officers to have access to the same information, so public conversations could be based on equal knowledge and common data, enabling them to work together towards common goals. City of Vantaa needed a data warehouse automation solution built for speed and agility to achieve data-driven transparency that spans the entire city – from government to civilians.

We are aiming at a 360 degree solution, where citizens, the council and city officers have access to the same information.  This solution will form one of the corners stones of functioning local democracy.

Antii Ylä-Jarkko, the CIO of City of Vantaa.

The Solution

City of Vantaa chose WhereScape RED to run on their Microsoft SQL Server, Office 365 and Azure platforms. WhereScape partnered with Cerion who are delivering a complete Data Warehouse Automation and Business Intelligence solution to the City of Vantaa.

The Benefits

Technologies under the solutions are developing fast. It is now possible to automate the usage of multiple new information sources and to collect, refine and use information in new ways.

City of Vantaa has taken the leading role in adopting innovative solutions including WhereScape Data Warehouse Automation and Business Intelligence solutions. In data driven organizations the leaders make fact based decisions and promote maximum transparency. The individual “Gut feeling” decisions are losing their popularity.
