As one of the biggest banking corporations in New Zealand, BNZ is a heavy consumer of data. Whenever BNZ develops a new product or plans a marketing campaign. BNZ wants faster, more flexible access to customer and transaction data so that it can respond more quickly to market conditions. The bank's Business Intelligence (BI) specialists often need up to a week to satisfy a data request, but its analysts say that's far too slow. So BNZ has turned to Microsoft for BI tools that will let the analysts run reports themselves, giving them the fast data results they need.
