Unilever is a British-Dutch multinational consumer goods company co-headquartered in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and London, United Kingdom. Its products include food, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products.
Unilever had vast quantities of accumulated data stored in a data warehouse built on Teradata and Microsoft SQL Server. The technology was neither flexible nor scalable, and was proving costly to maintain.
WHISHWORKS set up a Microsoft Azure HDInsight Hadoop platform to scale the enterprise data warehouse, with a new data lake fed by sources such as SAP Business Objects, Microsoft SQL Server and Teradata.
