ETI Improves Corporate Reporting and Business Analytics with Oracle Business Intelligence EE, Hyperion Planning and Hyperion Financial Management
"By choosing Oracle solutions (OBIEE, Hyperion Planning and Financial Mangement) we were able to collect and consolidate all information and show results to our key stakeholders and end users in the form they require. They can now focus on conducting better and faster business decisions; we often say: "There is only truth in the ETI Group - BI truth."

ETI Improves Corporate Reporting with Oracle Business Intelligence.


Since 1950, ETI has grown into the world's leading provider of products and services in the field of electrical installations and recently the leading manufacturer of technical ceramic, plastic and technical rubber products, tools and equipment.

ETI implemented Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIEE) in 2009, at the same time as they started with an ERP implementation at ETI group level. In 2012 ETI had a need to automate their planning process, so implemented Hyperion Planning for their sales, purchase and production planning. It was tightly integrated with ERP and BI system. ETO discovered that despite an ERP implementation, they still faced challenges around financial consolidation and reporting at a group level. This lead to the decision to implement Hyperion Financial Management in 2017. With a tightly integrated Oracle ERP,EPM and BI platform, ETI reduced the need to report in ERP system and followed Qubix’s recommendation to use a proven Oracle BI tool to do reporting and ad-hoc analysis , saving time and money that would have been needed to develop bespoke reporting.

Technology Deployed: OBIEE, Oracle Database 12c: Enterprise Edition, Oracle Database In-Memory Option, Oracle Data Integrator 12c, APEX for dimension management system, Oracle Hyperion Planning, Oracle Hyperion Essbase, Oracle Hyperion Financial Management.

  • Complex consolidation requirements.
  • No single view of truth for corporate reporting.
  • No unified reporting on a group level.
  • Difficult for end-users to create their own reports and perform ad-hoc analysis.
  • Achieved a consistent view across the business by implementing an enterprise-wide reporting and analytics solution that covers all of the business areas within the company from finance, sales, inventory, procurement, manufacturing.
  • ETI has eradicated the use of spreadsheets for reporting and now management can make informed decisions off one view of the business.
  • DSolution is multilingual and supports multiple currencies hence it is truly a "concern wide" solution.
  • Integrated security with corporate standards removing risk.

Why did ETI choose Oracle BI?

When deciding which platform select, ETI was convinced that Oracle was the only vendor that offered a comprehensive platform to meet all of the requirements we had at that time.

 

ETI now has  a global view on its business to drive accurate business decisions.

ETI implemented a company wide analytics system, building a full suite of internal and external facing reports combining data  from many key business units including finance, sales manufacturing and more

We started our “Oracle story” with partner Bron which is now part of Qubix group. First, we started with small pilot project which covered our basic needs for sales reporting. This successful pilot project was the trigger to start working with them. In our long-lasting partner relationship, we covered sales, purchase, distribution, production, accounting, finance, costs, planning, complaints, warehouse and other areas of whole ETI group. Qubix took a lead role in the implementation and demonstrated their key ability to gather our business requirements and other request and clearly delivered efficient solutions using technology.

 

"We were extremely satisfied with the professional approach from Qubix. Their suggestions and quick response times impressed us. We know that we can count on them when we have any kind of problems regarding the solutions they cover. We are confident that they will answer our phone calls, even in unofficial working time, in emergency situations that may occur."
