One of the largest cities in Belgium manages a fleet of around 3,500 vehicles. The total cost of ownership of this fleet could not be mapped out because the information was, as it were, hidden in different information systems. Linking and centralising this information would enable our client to better align employee scheduling with workload, optimize routes and minimize the risk of lack of space in the car parks.
During this project, the client took on a lot of preparatory work. Afterwards dataSHIFT was brought on board for our specific expertise in back-end development. We have taken on responsibility in executing multiple technical analyses, source analyses and in data warehouse development. Thanks to a detailed and thoroughly conducted needs assessment by our client, we were able to start designing and developing our solution right away.
We chose to give priority to the development of a central data model in which we could easily and agilely add other systems later on. This approach has allowed us to quickly produce results, receive feedback and process this feedback into a next release. An intensive collaboration with all stakeholders of the client was required, both during the development of the data flows and the implementation of the solution.
