ORLANDO -- Sheetz deployed Pentaho BI Suite Enterprise Edition and the Teradata Data Mart Appliance for use across multiple departments to provide self-service access to corporate data to drive company performance.
"The Pentaho suite allows our technology and business users to get the data they need to perform analysis and standard reporting," said James Wenner, director of information technology at Sheetz. "In phase one of our project, we are giving business users ad hoc capabilities for enterprise data. Pentaho has provided us with the support we needed to install and implement quickly."
The project, known as "Sharehouz," was created to support the company's continued growth and success by providing visibility into store-level sales data, integrated with other operational information, according to the company. In addition to standardized reports, the Sharehouz application allows business users to create their own ad hoc reports to answer key business questions at any level of detail across three terabytes of data stored in the Teradata Data Mart Appliance.
Pentaho was chosen based on its fit to Sheetz's technical requirements, its low cost of ownership compared to traditional BI alternatives, and its professional support, according to the company.
