Finding Efficiency and Integration
Since going public in 2011, LinkedIn has become the world’s largest professional network with 300 million members in over 200 countries and territories around the globe.
IN-HOUSE DATA WAREHOUSE CAN'T KEEP UP
As a fast-growing company, LinkedIn needed to integrate multiple versions of very rapidly changing planning and forecast data with actual financial records, and they needed to be able to do this without having to refresh the enterprise data warehouse. They also needed the ability to directly enter and edit attributes of financial data without updating the data in the source systems or enterprise data warehouse. As the volume of data grew exponentially, and as the requirements of the Financial Planning and Analysis group became more complex, the in-house solution LinkedIn was relying on began to exhibit substantial performance and usability issues.
