Composite Software today announced that Vodafone Netherlands has purchased the
Composite Data Virtualization Platform to provide a faster, more agile data
provisioning service to its reporting teams and business units, helping
fulfill a pressing need to integrate an increasing number of data sources into
the company’s enterprise computing architecture.

Vodafone Netherlands is part of the Vodafone Group, the world’s second largest
mobile phone operator with headquarters in the UK and operations in 30
countries around the globe with more than 440 million subscribers and revenues
of approximately $75 billion.

The Composite data virtualization solution complements and extends Vodafone
Netherlands’ current computing infrastructure consisting of a Teradata data
warehouse with 20 terabytes of customer data, Ab Initio for data integration
and SAP/Business Objects for reporting and analysis. Those data services which
they decide to physically implement in the Teradata data warehouse will have
already been prototyped and put into operation using Composite Information
Server and will make the outsourcing of the development for the ETL much more
straightforward.

According to MichaelHansen, Vodafone Netherlands Manager Business
Intelligence Competence Center, responsible for BI strategy and architecture,
the company was facing ongoing requests from business units seeking access to
new data sources in hopes of gaining new business insights. “With Composite,
we are confident to bridge the gap between the increasing impatience of our
business users in exploiting more and more data and giving them the ability to
do so,” Hansen said. “In addition, we feel it is important to have an in-house
capability like Composite next to outsourcing capabilities like classical data
provisioning and information exploitation activities.”

“We are pleased to welcome Vodafone Netherlands to the growing list of global
telecommunications providers who have discovered the business agility afforded
by the Composite data virtualization solution,” said Ché Wijesinghe, Composite
Software EVP, Worldwide Field Operations.
