Combined capabilities make the most of data warehousing expertise and data warehouse automation technology for UK and European market
AUSTIN, Texas – September 6, 2016 – Parity Solutions and Magnitude Software, a leader in enabling corporate performance management (CPM), master data management (MDM) and data warehouse automation (DWA) in heterogeneous environments today announced a partnership agreement for Parity to expand system integration capabilities in the UK for Magnitude’s DWA and MDM product set. The partnership enables Magnitude to offer expanded service and a greater variety of data warehouse automation integration options in the UK and Europe.
Parity Solutions, a system integration company, has extensive experience developing and integrating Data Warehouse and BI solutions. Parity implemented and supports a data warehouse solution at BAT (British American Tobacco) incorporating the Magnitude product set.
Using Magnitude’s DWA solution (Kalido), along with BusinessObjects, British American Tobacco Belgium with the help of Parity Solutions created a unified BI platform in the wake of its merger with STC.
The business benefits of the new solution were immediately apparent, driven by the insight Magnitude’s DWA solution gave BAT Belgium into its supply chain and sales operations. The flexibility to change data across BAT Belgium’s diverse source systems means executives get consistent, accurate and up-to-date information, allowing them to track sales performance and monitor market share on a daily basis.
“The project managed and delivered by Parity has impressed on every criterion – speed of delivery, budget and all-round capability,” said Frederic Wens, Business Systems & Data Manager at British American Tobacco Belgium. “The Kalido based solution has enabled us to deliver a future-proof, flexible data warehouse which takes a number of different source feeds, produced bullet-proof consolidated post-merger reports and ensured compatibility with our ongoing SAP convergence program. We regard this as an evolving program. Should we ever merge in the future, I now have no concerns we’d be able to deliver consolidated reports in time.”
Parity and Magnitude previously worked on joint proposals; under this new partnership both companies have access to an extensive array of ventures in the UK and Europe.
“Magnitude Software is proud to welcome Parity Solutions into our Partner Program” said Mike Wheeler, Vice President of Channel Development at Magnitude Software. “The high quality of Parity’s service to our joint customer, as evidenced by their 17-year relationship with BAT, is indicative of the type of world-class partners we are continuing to add to our growing partner network across the globe.”
Andy Ogg, Managing Director, Parity Solutions Ltd. said, “We are excited about the Partnership between Parity and Magnitude. With the combined skills, I believe that we will be in a great position to deliver holistic BI solutions for our customers.”
