Auckland Airport: Airport Improves Business Agility With Near-Real-Time Reports and Self-Service BI Tools
More than 70 percent of New Zealand's visitors use the Auckland Airport. Served by 20 international airlines, it is a major transport hub and the second-busiest regional airport after the one in Sydney, Australia. Auckland Airport wanted better Business Intelligence (BI) tools to optimize operations, so it replaced existing Oracle and Cognos products with a BI solution that includes Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. As a result, the airport has improved business agility and profitability with near-real-time access to analytics information. In addition, it has simplified and strengthened regulatory compliance and significantly reduced reporting time.
