Project Trade Winds is an effort to transform Hershey\'s trade promotion and total sales volume planning management capabilities through building one integrated platform, offering total volume, promotional planning and "what-if" capabilities. The Master Data Management (MDM) hub built on Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) acts as a one integrated platform and single source of master data providing single conformed values that has been cleansed and transformed from internal and external sources. The source for Teradata (EDW) is SAPBW and target system is SIEBEL and Oracle for performing the analytics. Trade Winds will be available first for North America Business and later rolled out to Canada Business.

Fresh & Easy is a chain of supermarkets on the West Coast of the United States. It is a subsidiary of the UK-based retailer Tesco, the world\'s third largest retailer. Group MIS forms part of the ‘Tesco Operating Model’ (TOM) suite of products with the aim of standardizing processes and procedures across the Group. It is a management reporting tool that consisted of a range of pre-defined ‘read-only’ reports designed for the Commercial Buying Teams to understand and manage their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).Since then further Commercial reports have been developed and the application rolled out to more countries (Turkey, China and Japan). The intention now is to create a Retail Group MIS and Supply Chain MIS solution to add to Commercial Group MIS. The US (Fresh & Easy stores) will be the first country to receive a retail reporting system. It will be known as GMIS Stores.

The Development of EDW is the strategic phase on the Swiss Banking IT Platform (SBIP) for all reporting and analytic applications over historical and end of-day data.
Data to be analyzed are obtained from various data sources, integrated and historized. Data obtained from the source systems are loaded into so-called subject databases. As the name suggests, each such database collects data about one specific subject (such as payments or credits).
Source files which are mainly generated from Mainframe based system, are loaded into the Data Warehouse on a daily, weekly. The source files contain the business data related to different segments like PPP, ACT, REF, MKT, SWC, and CAR etc. Migrated data is used for different types of reporting and analysis purposes.
