itelligence to deliver a modern data platform for Leeds Building Society

London, 8th December 2016 – itelligence announced today that Leeds Building Society is set to improve its data and analytics capabilities with the installation of a new Data Warehouse Platform and Business Analytics Solution to improve the insight gained by the society.

The modern data platform, which will be provided by itelligence, is an integrated and innovative technology platform that will aid decision making for the society by providing greater insight and the ability to react to change faster. The solution will incorporate the SAP HANA® platform, the SAP® BusinessObjects™ Business Intelligence (BI) platform and SAP BusinessObjects Predictive Analytics software.

Chris Long, Head of Data and BI at Leeds Building Society, said: “This is part of ongoing improvements across our BI and information management solutions to enable the society to obtain even better customer insight. The ultimate objective is to help the society make better use of data to support improved decision making.

“Leeds Building Society considers data to be strategically important and essential to the success of the business,” he added. “Our work with itelligence will provide the society with an enterprise-wide solution that has the capability to transform the way data is extracted, modelled, analysed and shared across our business.”

The modern data platform serves to improve the end-user experience for delivering insight by making data more accessible, supporting self-service and reducing the overall time to deliver the insight. At the core is a unified in-memory data management and processing capability that not only extends database services way beyond a traditional data warehouse, but also includes advanced application, processing and integration services that are consistent with a full platform.

The platform will be capable of managing data from a large variety of sources ranging from structured databases to Hadoop stores. Data will then be delivered with real-time query responses that are independent of the data types, with insight presented via advanced analytics tools.

Justin Brading, Managing Director at itelligence UK, commented: “The financial services sector is undergoing significant change, in terms of incorporating new digital business models. The itelligence modern data platform will help ensure that the society can use its data to better understand its customer base and thereby to remain highly relevant in the new information age.”
