Business Situation

The Client is in the midst of enterprise-wide digital transformation, migrating from legacy mainframe applications and disparate on-prem applications inherited from Emerson network power, Liebert energy systems among others to Oracle EBS regionally and Oracle Cloud globally, all while having both legacy and new channel systems operational in a complex hybrid environment across three global regions APAC, The Americas and EMEA.

Technical Situation

The Technical Landscape at the client consists of 30+ heterogeneous applications and are integrated with a Big Data environment which is comprised of three Cloudera Hadoop clusters – Development, Production and Disaster Recovery. The clusters are LDAP, Kerberos, and Sentry configured for authorization and access controls. Reporting is to be performed directly off the Production data lake only (via the Silver and/or Gold layers only) using standard reporting tools.


We first established the Access to the source system (Planview cloud) using DataZap’s REST API connector through Planview’s IQuery service and profiled the data to prepare it for Integration in the Hadoop data lake using dataZap. Once we identified the Planview Data needed for integration with Hadoop Data Lake we created the Data Model needed to build the requested reports to both Enhance Existing Dashboards and feed data to the mobile application for executives. The executive team’s primary requirement is to be View Actual & Forecast Budget, Benefit info, and be notified in real-time if and when the actuals exceed the forecasted budget.
