Zeppelin’s data management processes were inefficient due to the use of a variety of different data sources across the organization. The BI department was burdened with manually validating and communicating errors in flat files provided by Business Units, causing extra work and delays in the data upload process.


The application provides several benefits to Zeppelin, including a streamlined workflow that supports the business and increases ownership of Business Units. The solution improved the quality assurance of delivered information and external data, resulting in higher data quality and efficiency during data transfer to BI. Additionally, the solution eliminated back-and-forth communication between IT and Business Units, resulting in faster processes and greater transparency for Business Users.


Zeppelin’s BI department was able to build a data validation solution themselves supported by the enablement services from Nymbl. The business users select the data source they want to upload and can stage the data for review. Data can then be automatically validated by business logic validations that were built into the system, to ensure that the data is formatted correctly. Once the data is validated, the user can commit the data to the target data source, the BI database.
