Etisalat Egypt Maximizes the Value of Its Data Warehouse
Etisalat Egypt is part of Etisalat, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. The company provides fixed-line and mobile phone service and a host of 3G offerings, including video calling, mobile TV, mobile broadband Internet and data services. The value of a data warehouse is that it provides a single trusted source for information. But for data quality and integration teams, loading data from dozens or hundreds of source systems throughout the enterprise into the data warehouse can be challenging. Etisalat Egypt needed to complete this process between midnight and 8 a.m. every day. The company opted for IBM InfoSphere DataStage, an IBM InfoSphere Information Server module, to move data from numerous source systems into its data warehouse. Currently, Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) processes are performed nightly.
