Challenges

Grant Thornton generates a huge volume of financial reports such as time, bill and expense activity, profit and loss statements, and net revenue reports. However, by the time data was available to the business, it was often too old to be of use for decision making.

A fragmented portfolio of data integration platforms led to a web of different data movement combinations, which delayed time-sensitive integration, increased costs and impacted data quality.
