Wihuri, a Finnish conglomerate, has embarked on a significant digital transformation project with its Technical Trade business, with the help of leading data and analytics solutions vendor Islet Group. The project, which utilizes Microsoft Azure data platform, has revolutionized Wihuri’s approach to data management and analysis, leading to substantial improvements in business operations and decision-making.


Data Lakehouse Architecture

The innovative solution is based on the implementation of Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Synapse Pipelines, Delta Lake, and Azure SQL Serverless pool – an approach commonly referred to as “Data Lakehouse” architecture. This approach enables high flexibility, scalability, and advanced analytics capabilities, crucial for an enterprise of Wihuri’s scale.

Our goal was to implement a modern, scalable and flexible data architecture that would support our future growth and evolving business needs. The Data Lakehouse approach offered by Azure platform has proven to be the perfect fit for us. Islet is excellent choice as a partner for data and analytics solutions.

Additionally, Aecorsoft Data Integrator was employed to ingest SAP data into the Azure Data Lake, ensuring seamless data flow from SAP systems to Azure’s cloud platform. With innovative features, like Super Delta, it enables fast go-to-market and easy data ingestion.


Game-Changing Business Impact – Power BI

On top of the data platform, Power BI is used for providing insightful analysis for business users. The platform has streamlined the decision-making process, empowering users to understand their data more intuitively and to make data-driven decisions more efficiently.


Open, Committed, and Innovative Cooperation

From the Islet’s perspective, the project was an exciting opportunity to deliver a state-of-the-art Azure-based solution to a large corporation.

We were thrilled to work with Wihuri on this transformative project. Their openness to innovative solutions and their commitment to improving data management, made them an ideal partner for this endeavor.

Looking ahead

The successful implementation of this project has established a solid foundation for Wihuri’s future data initiatives. As they continue to grow and evolve, the flexibility and scalability of the Azure platform will continue to support their changing needs, ensuring they remain at the forefront of data-driven decision-making.

Seeing the impact of our solution on Wihuri’s operations and decision-making processes validates the power of a modern, flexible and scalable data platform. We look forward to supporting Wihuri as they continue to leverage the Azure platform for their data management and analytics needs.
