The challenge

Vodafone Netherlands is part of the Vodafone Group, one of the largest mobile telecommunications companies in the world with more than 446 million mobile customers and 12 million fixed network customers. The company’s ETL (extract, transform, load) development was very complex and expensive. One project to integrate a core system took nine months and considerable money, but resulted in poor data quality and virtually unusable reports. Vodafone knew it needed to deliver new initiatives and changes much faster than in the past while improving data quality and reducing operating expenses.

The solution

The telecommunications company chose WhereScape® automation software to automate data integration, support an agile/fail fast approach, and generate Data Vault 2.0 models for Vodafone’s Teradata data warehouse. Vodafone now uses WhereScape automation to present new sources to business users in only a few days’ time.

The results

  • Cut time to production from six months to two days
  • Reduced load times by 90%
  • Eliminated costs of ETL solution
