Pernod Ricard is using the Informatica PowerCenter platform to globally standardise its data integration requirements.
Pernod Ricard owns a brand portfolio which includes Ballantine's, Chivas Regal, Jameson Irish whiskey, Ricard pastis, Martell cognac, Havana Club rum, and Beefeater gin.
Informatica was chosen to enhance the company's tactical dash-boarding and business visibility as part of its business intelligence standardisation initiative.
"With Informatica PowerCenter, we are able to process very large volumes of data in record time. This is essential for guaranteeing rapid access to Pernod Ricard's strategic information, and a large number of analytic applications will now benefit," said Jean Chavinier, Pernod Ricard group CIO.
"PowerCenter is one of the most comprehensive systems on the market, with a large range of functions. These will be extremely useful in the context of the development of our global IT systems environment," said Chavinier.
Pernod Ricard needed to consolidate a number of disparate systems following operational changes and multiple acquisitions.
The implementation of a common ERP system was the catalyst for change, and resulted in a project to overhaul the company's analytical tools region by region, with a common data integration solution collecting and sharing data across various applications.
