IT & Project Manager, TiRus International SA
TiRus International SA is a wholly owned subsidiary of VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation, the world’s largest integrated producer of titanium and its alloy. As such, TiRus is a key strategic partner of leading companies in high-technology sectors like aerospace, aero-engines, energy (including nuclear power industry), chemical engineering, ship building, medicine, etc. To service the demand created by exporting 70% of the titanium, the company produces for more than 300 companies in 48 countries world-wide.
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 the tool experts, 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.
Even before the Go-Live of the new BI platform, benefits of automation in the development could be observed e.g. significantly lower costs both in development and maintainance along with shorter time-to-market for a number of new features. Additionally, biGENIUS provided the team with ready-to-use customizable blueprints for data warehousing and a semantic layer for data modelling. This enabled the BI developers of TiRus to implement a best quality data management solution even without long-year experience in data analytics.
