Is your organization Octopied?

With effortless onboarding and no implementation costs, Octopai’s data intelligence platform gives you unprecedented visibility and trust into the most complex data environments.

A business needs to implement a new regulation that calls for companies to change HR headcount reporting from monthly to daily, both accurately and quickly, without business disruptions.

The Business Challenge

New regulation calling for companies to change HR headcount reporting from monthly to daily
must be implemented accurately and quickly, without business disruptions.

The Data Challenge

The Data & Analytics team must quickly and accurately locate the formula calculating the headcount in reports, database tables, ETL processes, views and stored procedures – without additional manpower. The
Data & Analytics team must also understand all possible impacts of making the change.


The Solution

In order to locate the specific calculation, the Data & Analytics team had to manually map out the entire data landscape.
With metadata scattered all over the place, this is a very time consuming and costly process, which
can require multiple development and design cycles before completing the change.

In one click, Octopai presents a complete, easy-to-understand map of all the ETL, database and reporting systems where the change must be implemented.
