Engie Mexico’s Data Virtualization and Capability Integration (Da Vinci) Project
Engie Mexico had been maintaining a segregated legacy data infrastructure comprised of extract, transform, and load (ETL) processes, data warehouses, and Excel files; but the company had no single source of truth and found it difficult to keep a track of changes that were happening in the various data sources.
This led to the Data Virtualization and Capability Integration (Da Vinci) project, the company’s first major datacentric implementation project, designed to create a data infrastructure that could cater to a wide range of business requirements and build new business use cases to drive the company towards becoming a data driven company.
The Denodo Platform lies at the center of this new infrastructure, integrating data from disparate sources in real time and providing a logical, agile, flexible way to source, integrate, and deliver data. Engie has significantly improved its digital footprint since the start of the project and reduced the time-to-delivery of data integration projects. More than seven data integration projects were delivered within the initial six months of the start of the project. In the first 8 months of the year 2021, 11 projects in the area of descriptive analytics for data science were delivered.
