For over 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has been the largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network in the US.
"Data is one of our biggest assets, especially when it comes to securing funding, which is what enables us to provide our services to so many kids," says Brian Moffo, Director of Business Intelligence, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of America aims to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Given the importance of having easy access to its data, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America realised that it needed to improve the performance of its information infrastructure. "Our input systems didn't talk to one another," Moffo says. "We wanted to build a unified data warehouse system with solutions that could sit on top of older systems. We didn't want to have to rebuild everything, but rather just take the data as it was."
