The Challenge

A global luxury goods company had been producing a Climate Report as part of their ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) reporting suite since 2020.

Unfortunately, the manual effort to gather and combine all the source information from 450 individual sites, as well as upstream and downstream supply chains, meant that the report could only be compiled annually. 

They wanted to streamline and automate the process so they could track progress throughout the year, allowing them to course-correct if they were in danger of missing their targets.

What we did

Loaded spreadsheets from regional manager surveys into a Solidatus model

Connected each element of the Climate Report with its applications and sources 

Identified which regions needed to adopt data from an authorised source

Tagged transitions between layers to indicate automated and manual data flows

Filtered to identify Climate Report elements for which no data was being sourced

The Benefits

Recommended changes to reduce the number of applications needed

Found ways to automate 68% of the company’s Climate Report


Solidatus at a Big 4 UK Bank

The Challenge

A Big 4 UK Bank had decided to implement a new General Ledger fed by strategic accounting data feeds.

However, a disparate team of Business Analysts working at speed and in parallel were having to use spreadsheets to define the feeds, and the formats were starting to diverge.

It was complex and time-consuming to look across the strategic feeds to verify consistency and alignment to the original business requirements, and they realised they needed a better approach.

What we did

Loaded the various feed specification spreadsheets into a Solidatus model

Showed the Lead Business Analyst how to interrogate and filter the model

Discovered that feeds were being inconsistently mapped

Identified critical accounting data items that had been incorrectly mapped

Caused the Lead Business Analyst to exclaim “Why have we done that?!”

The Benefits

Discovered issues far earlier than otherwise possible, with little overhead

Enabled the team to harmonise and review their work across multiple feeds

Provided an easier way to share mapping information with stakeholders

Gave the bank far greater confidence in the mappings being delivered

Using Solidatus you've found issues we would not have found ourselves.
