Elevating Restaurant Chain Data ManagementRestaurant

A Southern Restaurant Chain, originally using Domo for data needs, opted to switch to Power BI, encountering challenges due to the absence of a dedicated data warehouse.

The absence of a centralized data storage solution likely contributed to difficulties in managing and extracting meaningful insights from their data. The move to Power BI was needed to enhance data analysis capabilities, potentially addressing the issues associated with the previous tool and establishing a more robust foundation for data management and reporting.

Facing internal constraints, the Client aimed to swiftly transition within 2-3 months, prioritizing the marketing team’s reporting needs and seeking to streamline data operations by consolidating information from various sources into a centralized data warehouse platform.
