Integrating data sources to gain a comprehensive overview of operations
Mirgor Group aims to become the main driver of innovation in Argentina. With activities ranging from manufacturing car parts to retailing electronics and exporting food products, it was hard to get a full picture of the business to move the business forward.
Mirgor’s hybrid data strategy used a mix of cloud-based data sources, from SAP Ariba solutions and SAP SuccessFactors solutions to third-party sources, in addition to on-premise sources, such as its ERP system. Silos had developed between these sources, getting in the way of analysis.
For example, a subsidiary company of Mirgor that manufactures electronics uses its ERP system to handle production data and submit orders to the factory. It also sells its products through e-commerce and other sales channels, bringing in data from different systems. Without a single data access layer to bring together these diverse data sources, getting real-time insights into production proved challenging.
Across the organisation, it was difficult to access data for analysis, with some data also prone to inaccuracies or delays.
Mirgor needed to be able to process transactional and analytical data simultaneously to enable near-real-time analysis.
