Business Requirements

  • Essilor USA was looking to upgrade their Oracle BI Applications from the de-supported version to the latest and greatest
  • Migrate complex Informatica ETL mappings and relevant BI components to ODI ecosystem
  • Enable business teams (Procurement, Finance, Projects Accounting, SCM, Sales & Marketing) with advanced BI dashboards
  • Enable Self-Service capabilities to grant access of the enterprise data to the power users

Business Challenges

  • The migration from Oracle BI Applications 7.9 to 11.x requires re-implementation as there is no direct upgrade path possible
  • Lack of in-house ODI experts and longer migration path estimated
  • The original implementation team is not around
  • High dependencies on the upgrade with other critical in-flight projects like rollout to Florida hospitals
  • Longer time to deliver business reports and dashboards
