With more than 1.2 million customers and around 9,700 employees, Stadtwerke München (SWM) is one of the largest energy providers in Germany.
In 2008, Stadwerke started developing a company-wide BI platform. As part of this BI strategy, they selected Talend Data Integration. Talend integrates various databases, for example SAP systems, web services, Excel worksheets and CSV files. Talend transfers the data from the various company departments to the BI platform where they are consolidated and can be used for evaluations.
Around a terabyte of data from the various SAP systems are also extracted to a proprietary database and checked for quality by Talend.
Talend turned out to be ideal for controlling the BI platform with automated creation of users, granting of user permissions and generating reports.
