In 2012 the small IT team based in Lausanne started its first DWH project from scratch. None of the two team members had previous experience or background in analytics. Supported by Trivadis, the first BI reports were provided shortly. Along with the increasing adoption of provided reports by users across the entire company, more and more new requirements from business units followed and reqiured delivery within shorter and shorter deadlines. Thus, the next logical step was to enhance the exisiting BI platform, but this time using biGENiUS for data warehouse automation.
