Powerco, a leading distributor of gas and electricity in New Zealand, wanted better support for investment decisions. To manage its assets more efficiently, the company decided to implement a data warehouse with self-service business intelligence (BI) tools
based on Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Enterprise. The solution works with multiple data types and sources, including geospatial information. As a result, the company has improved business insight, gained better access to data, and cut reporting time from two
weeks to overnight while improving the consistency and accuracy of information.
