Major European Universal Bank leverages flexible report technology to deliver their report requirements

The problem

Our client had developed a flexible processing engine for the accounting and control procedures. The operational side of the process processed data at a very fine grain rapidly and enabled them to achieve a single ledger across their businesses globally. Despite this they had significant problems using the data in reporting systems. Their reporting function had swelled to huge numbers of resources and many IT projects to provide strategic reporting automation were failing to meet expectations and timelines.

How we helped

Kinaesis used its best practice techniques to implement a meta data driven data integration layer to enable the projects to discover the meaning of the ledger data through the project process. Changes to the ETL could be made within minutes and fields remodelled to meet new understanding and knowledge enabled the projects to move forwards rapidly and efficiently. Kinaesis used its experience in data governance to manage the centralised data model to conform information across the enterprise to a semantic schema.

Key Victories

The clients whose many IT projects had struggled to deliver value in the past was able to deliver multiple reporting solutions onto the platform and provide them to the users. We centralised the business semantics reducing the complexity of the reporting solutions and reducing the time for testing as numbers were matching expectations and the users were able to focus on functionality over content. Further strategic investment was scheduled on the platform to bring in more reporting solutions further simplifying the architecture.
