Customer Use Case

"The functionality that Pentaho gives over proprietary vendors provides huge cost savings."

Eric Vanasch, ICT Service Manager, Brussels Airport

Brussels Airport

Major airport housing 260 companies and 6,000 employees

Business Challenges

  • The airport wanted to replace both its Oracle reporting and an IBM Extraction Transformation and Load (ETL) tool.
  • The airport also sought to replace its current BI solution with a more cost-efficient, single "information delivery platform" for decision makers.

Pentaho Solution

  • Pentaho Data Integration, Analysis, Reporting and Dashboard tools included in the Pentaho BI Suite Enterprise Edition.

Value Added

  • The airport’s finance, commercial, operations and ICT departments will benefit from the Agile BI capabilities, allowing greater iterative development between business user and developer.
  • These departments will now provide daily, weekly and monthly management reporting, ad hoc analysis and dashboards replacing Excel spreadsheets and about 200 scheduled Hyperion reports.
  • The pilot solution was delivered on target and in budget.
  • The airport estimates a cost savings of more than €350K.
  • Pentaho easily and cost-effectively provides daily snapshots from its Sybase IQ data warehouse and consistent reporting across the company.
