About the Client

An entire corporate group, composed of top companies operating in the field of heavy plate, needed to meet the needs of their customers with a focus on quality services and products.

Problem Statement

The client wanted to find the best technology stack that would enable Data Vault 2.0 to:

  • Reduce inconsistencies and fragmentation of data
  • Compile subject-specific data from multiple data sources
