Georgia Gulf, an American chemical manufacturer, emerged from near-bankruptcy three years ago with severely limited resources at its disposal. The company needed a long-term information services strategy that would allow it to provide fast, reliable access to data for business users across the organization—and it had to execute the transformation on a tight budget.
Jonathan Commanday, Director of Applications Services, Chemicals and Corporate at Georgia Gulf, worked with IBM Business Partner Acumlus to develop this strategy. With nine disparate ERP systems to integrate and manage, the company elected to purchase IBM® InfoSphere® DataStage®, Change Data Delivery, Information Analyzer, QualityStage®, and Metadata Workbench.
Today, Georgia Gulf employees have rapid, reliable access to the data and reports they need. Change Data Delivery enabled the company to handle data movements that previously took days in just minutes, increasing performance by 80 to 90 percent and allowing the organization to be much more nimble. Commanday also says that the IBM tools were both easier to work with and less expensive than the Oracle alternatives his team considered.
