projects & agreements TIMETOACT USES TALEND TO INTEGRATE DATA AT PERNOD RICARD Talend has provided a technological platform for standardised reporting and planning tasks at the Pernod Ricard Wine and Spirits group. Timetoact, an IT services provider, developed a comprehensive extraction, transformation and loading (ETL) system to integrate various data sources with the central data warehouse in order to create one master record of all files. At the same time, regular checks were done to verify the accuracy of the information used. Another advantage of the new solution is that it provides a clearly structured, consistent process, which helps Pernod Ricard achieve significantly higher performance levels. With Talend, data importing for a core report has been reduced from eight hours to 20 minutes. The company no longer needs to initiate the process at night in order to get results the next morning. Now they can immediately create new reports directly after changes have been made. In conventional annual and quarterly planning, current and target figures can be compared and analysed within five minutes. Siemens provides first European data centre with unique 3D visualisation DCIM platform Cofely Services’ Agility data centre is located in the south of Belgium and serves both in-house GDF SUEZ Group clients and external customers with an independent ICT infrastructure. The centre is the first in Europe to offer Datacenter Clarity LC with 3D visualisation, which offers a virtual tour through the data centre infrastructure while managing and monitoring remotely. Datacenter Clarity LC optimises consumption, thereby facilitating green computing through the cost efficient operation of data centres. The unique, flexible 3D visualisation adds transparency to the data centre infrastructure, delivering accessible reporting, optimised operations, smarter decision, higher flexibility and future proof architecture. Datacenter Clarity LC monitors and evaluates the performance of a data centre and bridges the gap between IT and facilities management creating a systematic and automated workplace for a business critical resource such as the Agility Data Centre. Siemens designed the solution and architecture of the Datacenter Clarity LC platform, installed and deployed it, and arranged the integration with the existing building management system.
