Recall, a records-management firm, needed faster access to key performance indicators and more intuitive Business Intelligence (BI) tools. The company consolidated four data centers into a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 data warehouse. Recall considered BI solutions from Panorama, CORDA, QlikView, Tableau, and SAP. The company ultimately decided to base its new solution on Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Enterprise data management software running on the Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise operating system. The solution's performance enhancements speed employee access to more detailed data. By consolidating into a data warehouse, the company saved U.S.$1 million in hardware and licensing costs.
