Using sensor data from trucks to improve profitability
Mr. Stijn Roelens, Enterprise BI Architect at Volvo.
Hear why a leading multinational company that manufactures trucks, buses and construction equipment has consolidated their disparate data warehouse into a single Enterprise Data Warehouse and learn how truck sensor data is helping them to stand out from the competition and improve profitability.
The Challenge: This company needed to combine sensor data with operational data to deliver compelling offers, provide greater customer service and improve profitability.
The Solution: An integrated Enterprise Data Warehouse with a single global modelling standard. Automated and managed by WhereScape.
The Benefit: The company gets value from their sensor data, shortening times to market and delivering BI solutions faster than ever before.
Mr. Stijn Roelens
has over 13 years experience of BI. His roles have included analyst, developer, PM & enterprise architect. His main focus has been on how automation and agility can be effectively introduced in the data domain.  Currently he is focusing on how an organisation can be changed into an information driven company that understands and sees value in information.
