Within the Islamic banking sector, our client, which has a rich forty-year history, embarked on a journey to refine its operations by adopting data-driven tactics. For this, they implemented Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) to streamline HR processes.

However, they faced the obstacle of integrating Fusion HCM data into Power BI, so they had to rely on manual integration, which affected their efficiency. Read on to learn how BI Connector helped them solve their problem.

The Challenge

Our client, a distinguished entity in the Islamic banking sector, encountered significant obstacles:

  • Manual data transfers: The reliance on manual processes to transfer data from Oracle Fusion to Power BI was a significant challenge. This time-consuming and labor-intensive task not only created inefficiencies, but also increased the probability of errors.
  • Limited view of data: In addition, the customer faced the restrictions of Oracle Fusion OTBI’s 75,000 row limit. This restriction severely hampered their ability to gain a complete view of their HR data, limiting their decision-making capabilities and hindering operational efficiency.

The Solution

BI Connector emerged as the solution to our client’s challenges, offering:

  • Seamless Connectivity: BI Connector facilitated seamless connectivity between Power BI and Oracle Fusion HCM, eliminating the need for manual data transfers. This streamlined integration process significantly reduced the time and effort required to access and analyze HR data.
  • Automated Report Generation: By automating the report generation process, BI Connector empowered our client to generate timely and accurate reports within Power BI Service. This automation not only improved operational efficiency but also ensured that decision-makers had access to up-to-date insights.
  • Overcoming Limitations: Most importantly, BI Connector overcame the limitations imposed by Oracle Fusion OTBI’s row restrictions. By fetching all rows from OTBI to Power BI through an automated batch process, BI Connector ensured that our client’s HR data insights were not constrained by technical limitations.

The Outcome

The implementation of BI Connector brought about transformative outcomes for our client:

Time Savings

The substantial reduction in manual data refresh time resulted in significant time savings for our client. Freed from the burdensome task of manual data transfers, they were able to redirect their efforts towards more strategic initiatives, saving a substantial amount of time over a short period.

Operational Efficiency

With streamlined processes and access to comprehensive insights, our client experienced enhanced operational efficiency. They were better equipped to identify trends, address issues proactively, and make informed decisions to drive organizational success. This led to a noticeable improvement in productivity.

New Insights

Perhaps most importantly, BI Connector enabled our client to uncover new insights hidden within their HR data. By breaking free from the constraints of OTBI’s row limitations, they were able to delve deeper into their data, uncovering valuable insights that were previously inaccessible.
