Destia – Business data management solution improves operational efficiency
Destia selected Loihde Advance as the planning and implementation partner for a company-wide business intelligence management solution. The outcome of the project was a large-scale, high-quality centralized data warehouse with data transfers, as well as hundreds of standard reports and outlooks to facilitate data analysis. The coherent high-quality package was created with the help of Microsoft and QlikTech technologies. By combining the best qualities of the products, a comprehensive solution was created to support the business.
The business data management solution serves the entire Destia: users from site personnel to group management. For example, financial administration, management, procurement, equipment management, projects, and support functions have been given their own reporting areas. The new solution has been exceptionally well received by the user base, offering excellent support for achieving Destia’s strategic goals now and in the future.
Loihde Advance delivered the implementation as a turnkey project that included all aspects of the solution. Our experts were responsible for carrying out the needs assessment, functional specifications, technology evaluation, design, and implementation, among other things. The project was carried out using agile methods. The project introduced functions for the company to use in stages, the first ones a few weeks after the start of the project.
Jaana Saarela, CIO, Destia: This was a first-class project, and Loihde Advance was a great partner for its implementation. All the objectives of the project were met, and the business operations’ response to the solution exceeded expectations.
