Taking a Different Approach to Enterprise Analytics — A Broadcom Case Study

For many large enterprises—especially those corporations growing via acquisition—unifying their approach to analytics is fraught with challenges. Ever-changing disparate data sets, multiple and siloed analytic tool sets and rapidly evolving business reporting requirements have led to many of these organizations to take on massive data warehouse and analytic infrastructure initiatives. So how did a global communications and semiconductor giant like Broadcom rethink its analytic infrastructure and overcome the seemingly endless complexity of managing its ever-growing large, complex data?

Broadcom is bypassing traditional ETL and data warehousing methods, leveraging Incorta’s innovative Direct Data Mapping engine to enable real-time reporting on large complex business data in a self-service environment. Incorta’s end-to-end analytics approach has helped reduce project timelines, query response times, and IT complexity for Broadcom’s users worldwide.

Ajit Oak, Senior Manager of Business Intelligence at Broadcom, aptly summarizes the value of this approach when he explains, “It used to take 8 to 12 weeks to get a report from request to production. With Incorta, business users can do that on their own, instantaneously.”

“I’m a huge fan of Incorta. It’s saving our team an entire week’s
worth of time each month, which means we can perform ad hoc analysis that
improves department performance.”
