Biogen Idec


Typical of many large companies, the business analysts at Biogen Idec were having to manually collect, collate, and integrate data for many of the reports. Critical sales reports to executive management were taking too long to generate, resulting in information that was delivered too late to be truly actionable. The executive mandate to grow revenues by 20% annually created additional pressures on the business analysts as they needed to create new reports, integrate new data sources such as web data, and frequently modify existing reports.

  • Data sources (spreadsheets, flat files, databases) from external and internal sources
  • Rapidly changing reporting requirements
  • Development of new reports taking too long


  • Data Virtualization automated access to the various data sources
  • Denodo Platform tools simplified and accelerated data transformation, quality, and combination
  • Data normalization, cleansing, transformation, validation, and combination using graphical tools
  • The resultant data was delivered in the format required by the consuming applications


  • Actionable information was provided to the Biogen Idec executives in a timely manner
  • Agile development of new reports – 60% faster than previously
  • 100% increase in reporting delivery with 40% less analysts
  • Self-service reports built from reusable data services
