To bridge the gap between unstructured data and clear understanding, Pidpa put its faith in business intelligence (BI). Together with the BI consultants from Ordina Visionworks, Pidpa decided to install a datamart. BusinessObjects as a reporting tool on top of the datamart met all the requirements identified. The solution has all the characteristics of a big data project. All metering points send data to the data mart every quarter of an hour. It collects, analyses and structures the data, which represents over 30,000 measurements per day. This forms the input for fast, flexible and detailed reports, on the basis of various parameters.
