News Corp Australia is part of one of the world’s largest global media and information services businesses – News Corp. and is Australia’s No.1 destination for news, lifestyle, sport and business.
With digital media, the company was growing and along with it, its data. There was an urgent need for intelligent data capture and integration with minimal load on their resource systems. Their reporting requirements were also not being delivered on time. We stepped in and had their system up and running. They now received their production data near real-time to a HP Vertica Data Warehouse, with no load on the source OLTP system. Their reports were accurate and on time – previous solutions could not meet their reporting Service Level Agreements. Payback for the investment in the technology was started right from User Acceptance Testing when business users discovered anomalies, which had not been uncovered earlier.
