Blizzard Entertainment is a premier developer and publisher of entertainment software. After establishing the Blizzard Entertainment label in 1994, the company quickly became one of the most popular and well-respected makers of computer games. By focusing on creating well-designed, highly enjoyable entertainment experiences, Blizzard Entertainment has maintained an unparalleled reputation for quality since its inception. Blizzard Entertainment’s track record of #1 games spans more than two decades.
Blizzard needed assistance in an end-to-end redesign of their monthly closing financials process. Their existing solution involved an abundance of mismanaged stored procedures and manual report generation.
Our team performed an ETL redesign using the Syncsort tool, DMExpress. An automated report generation system was also added on to allow the management to see snapshot financial reports at any given point in time. Our team also completed a full migration of their existing data warehouse from SQL Server to Oracle.
Besides the obvious benefits of the redesign and migration, our team was later told the automation implemented also allowed for multiple team members to be freed of daily tasks enabling them to focus on the Hadoop implementation that would come the following year.
