A Big Opportunity – and a Big Challenge
Citrix was using multiple data warehouses which were built over years by different teams using different standards and redundant steps. These challenges were stopping Citrix from making changes more efficiently. The troubleshooting was also multifold due to so many different steps and sometimes the reports were inconsistent.
Partnering with AAJ Technologies
AAJ Technologies has been a trusted partner for Citrix for over 10 years. AAJ Technologies has delivered many projects with Citrix with high quality, always within their timelines and budget.
Citrix engaged with AAJ Technologies to fix the BI-related issues, remove redundant steps, enhance performance by optimizing queries, and use conformed dimensions to have a single version of the truth – essentially re-architecting the whole solution. “We chose AAJ due to their expertise in Business Intelligence and systems integration, they are easy to work with and very predictable. Their teams provide high quality every single time and on top of all we don’t need to interact with the whole team, but just the lead Project Manager and they take care of everything from there”. Said Karl.
AAJ’s Solution for Citrix
AAJ’s consultants worked closely with Citrix’s BI team to define the requirements and tasks associated with each step. The new solution took the data from ERP, Licensing fulfillment system and CRM. “AAJ created a solution that has complex integrations, is well-engineered, robust, and technically sound,” observed Karl. “Their work was very high quality, but they also did it quickly. And AAJ’s commitment was impressive. They did whatever it took to help us get the project completed on time – even if it meant working late hours – to ensure that we met our tight deadlines. The project was delivered ahead of time with a lot more functionality than what was committed in the original scope at the beginning of the project”
