Covidien (now Medtronic Minimally Invasive Therapies) was a global healthcare company and manufacturer of medical products and supplies. Being spun off from Tyco International in 2007, the firm was acquired by Medtronic in 2015.
At the time of contacting WHISHWORKS, Covidien was facing a cumbersome and time-consuming process for producing their daily sales reports. Being run every night, these reports were used by their sales staff and customers to provide information on inventory levels held by the company. WHISHWORKS implemented a Hadoop cluster to optimise this daily reporting process, centralising their data sources in a data lake and reducing the cost of storage and time to produce the reports from internal sources and systems.
The Hadoop platform enabled the company to produce the reports in just 20 minutes, a significant decrease from their previous 18 hour run time, and helping to drive success for the business.
