Ultramar Diamond Shamrock (UDS) is part of Valero Energy Corporation, a leading refining company with 20,000 employees, annual revenues of $55 billion, and 4,700 retail sites. The company wanted to migrate several of its legacy systems to an SAP environment, but continue to manage other legacy systems in non-SAP environments. To do this successfully, UDS needed to link the two and give users centralized access to both.


  • Link SAP and non-SAP environments
  • Provide centralized access to enterprise data
  • Minimize training and development costs
PowerCenter's flexibility helped successfully bridge the gap between our SAP and non-SAP data, providing a comprehensive window into the business for our decision-makers. The pairing of SAP BW with Informatica resulted in a powerful analytic architecture that has become mission-critical to the continued success of our business.
