With 10,000 products and 100,000 customers, Henry Schein, Inc., is the largest distributor of health care products and services to office-based practitioners in the combined North American and European markets. Following several acquisitions, the company needed to integrate a broad range of data from multiple business units, each using their own technology platforms.

Challenges

  • Integrate data from a variety of incompatible systems
  • Create central repository of customer and sales information
  • Enable ad-hoc reporting and analysis
Informatica has helped optimize our data warehouse system to quickly and easily produce detailed, accurate analytical reports. Managers can better run their divisions empowered with knowledge of their customers, sales force and products, and Henry Schein executives can now gain a corporate-wide view allowing for better comparison and more informed decision-making.
