From Zero to Cloud-based data-as-a-service for HR Analytics delivered in 3 months

Wednesday 13 November 2019


For an organisation of over 50k people, having a trusted and customisable data analytics capability was vital to allow British American Tobacco to run a successful talent review process. This was something that they could not achieve with their existing analytics tech stack to hit their talent review cycle deadline.

Hear how the BAT HR Analytics team leveraged the power of smart data provisioning to build an entirely automated Azure data solution, providing a foundation for data-as-a-service for people analytics within 3 months to run their Talent Review cycle. Find out how DataPlus was used to generate a flexible, business-focussed data model and audited data flows from multiple internal and external data sources, which could be extended by their business team with no IT development effort, providing low latency and automated data management.
DataPlus, along with Power BI (providing business-customisable dashboards) now serves analytics to over 100 users globally including the Group HR leadership team.
