The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) needed to harness the vast amount of data involved in coordinating re-build operations in Christchurch following the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. Theta was a key part of the team that worked with SCIRT to rapidly develop a single-portal, public cloud-based business intelligence (BI) solution using Microsoft tools. Within four months we had built a comprehensive solution for SCIRT using Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008 R2 and SharePoint technologies. WhereScape RED confers a full data warehousing meta-data management capability on top of the SQL Server platform, plugging into the Microsoft BI stack to provide additional visibility into the origin of any data.
The organisation can now view and share detailed data analysis quickly and easily, as well as manage, digest and present the vast amounts of data collected each week.
“It would’ve taken two or three full-time staff to provide the visibility we need and to cope with data integration issues. We don’t need them now and I can run all month-end reports in an afternoon.”
