This leading courier company in Europe with over 4000 vehicles and over 12,000 employees embarked on its cloud journey with the help of Striim. The company is moving its data warehousing and analytics solutions to the cloud and uses Striim to move real-time data from transactional systems running on Oracle databases to Google BigQuery to enable cloud-based analytics.
Google BigQuery serves as the operational data store supporting real-time reporting and ad-hoc queries. By using real-time data in its analytical environment, the company can provide fast operational reports with up-to-date data. The company plans to use real-time transactional data for fleet optimization and real-time shipment status notifications to customers.
Set up the operational data store (ODS) in the cloud by ensuring up-to-date transactional data is available in the cloud
Eliminated the performance impact of running ad-hoc queries on the production OLTP systems by offloading reporting to real-time ODS in the cloud
Gained the ability to optimize fleet management and improve customer service using real-time GPS data
Striim supports transportation and logistics providers with a variety of use cases including:
