CEMEX is the world's leading supplier of ready-mix concrete and the third-largest manufacturer of cement, producing nearly 10 million tons of cement each year for customers in 50 countries. The company faced two daunting data integration tasks simultaneously: acquiring a major competitor while migrating to a customized back-office SAP platform.

Challenges

  • Create unified global data architecture
  • Migrate data from 100+ legacy applications to new custom SAP platform
  • Maintain data integrity and consistency
Informatica PowerCenter is the only solution that offered us the unique combination of universal data access, high performance, and data movement flexibility that we needed to implement a global data synchronization system across a heterogeneous infrastructure.
