Multinational food and beverage giant: Transforming analytics capabilities

A multinational food and beverage company teams with Accenture to plot and enable its analytics transformation.

Overview

A multinational food and beverage company teams with Accenture to plot and enable its analytics transformation, setting the foundation for speed, agility and robust return on investment.

Faced with rising retailer and consumer demands, and a cost-conscious culture, a global food and beverage company turned to Accenture Analytics to collaborate on a new analytics strategy, roadmap, governance, and technical environment that would help deliver analytics capabilities and value quickly with robust return on investment.

Accenture and senior leadership collaborate to:

  • Identify opportunities to realize significant economic value by executing specific projects.

  • Build the analytics foundation for the company.

  • Create two pilot programs to prove out the new analytics capabilities.

Opportunity

This company’s analytics investment has historically been in foundational business intelligence (BI) capabilities and technologies. In order to develop a sustainable competitive advantage in analytics, investment needs to shift towards more agile and global capabilities as well as in fostering a new culture that thrives on fact-based decision making. The company called on Accenture Analytics to help develop a transformational analytics strategy and foundational technical capabilities to support the company’s vision.

Solution

Accenture developed a hub-and-spoke organizational structure with clear roles and responsibilities to improve the effectiveness of the analytics team.

Following the implementation of the new organizational structure, Accenture teamed with the company to define and build the technical architecture needed to create a global data marketplace leveraging SAP BW on HANA.

The team enabled a data discovery platform using Hadoop, Alteryx and R to expand advanced analytics capabilities. And for the new analytics culture to be sustainable, self-service analytics and visualization front-end was created for reporting, dashboards, discovery and analytics, and advanced analytics, including commercialization of new tools like SAP Lumira to enable self-service.

Results

By teaming with Accenture, this food and beverage company now has a comprehensive analytics strategy and foundational environment to conduct analytics projects.

The new organizational model and technical infrastructure allows the company to deliver global reporting more efficiently, expand self-service capabilities, better handle data for tactical and strategic analytics use, and deliver with more consistent quality.
