With their existing TM1 solution bursting at the seams due to dramatic growth in the wireless sector, AT&T Wireless called on CarpeDatum Consulting, Inc. to update a financial analysis system that now supports over 200 users across the United States.
CarpeDatum Consulting helped resolve a number of performance issues related to several components in the existing OLAP system including; server hardware, software upgrades, inefficient architecture, increased WAN usage, end-user training, and large file transfers.
CarpeDatum Consulting worked closely with AT&T to design a solution that increased system performance, simplified maintenance, and provided several enhanced capabilities. These changes also increased the overall usefulness and usability of the system. By converting the existing cube structure from an accounting-based architecture into an OLAP-based configuration, the solution is now tuned for planning, analytics, and "what-if" analysis.
Finally, comprehensive end-user training enabled analysts perform their tasks more efficiently and effectively as well as allowing power-users to maintain the integrity of the system.
