A large transportation organization needs to have ready access to decades worth of shipping data. The existing data ranges from scanned manifests and databases to lading receipts and billing documents. The organization must be able to collate the transfer of materials to both internal and external entities to meet legal standards.
- Different database sources have different key values and structures
- Print records range from detailed inventories to generalized data with cryptic nomenclatures
- Scanned materials vary significantly in quality
- Multiple data sources, formats, and permissions
- Data velocity is faster than the speed-of-business
- Organizational issues artificially isolate data away from relevant groups
