Challenges the customer had to face
Heterogeneous data sources from many information systems generating large volumes of data that are difficult to structure.
Fragmented reports/analyses created by users in Excel with no broader context and limited data visualisation options.
Non-intuitive user interface discouraging end users from using it effectively.
Extensive diversification of the technologies used, often without interdependence between the different areas of responsibility.
