Faced with fierce competition and a troubled global economy, business decision makers at Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) were turning more and more to their IT department for help in producing detailed data analysis and reports. This explosion in demand for customized data reporting was straining the IT staff and hampering corporate decisions. So MSC looked for technology that could deliver more data directly into the hands of business users - and provide easy-to-use tools for analyzing the information.
