The city of Järvenpää is now able to produce reports quickly and cost-effectively from different information systems. The information has been harnessed even better for decision-making and it is also planned to be shared openly with the municipal citizens. DSharp worked together with Netum on the data platform project for Järvenpää.

Business modeling in focus

Data warehouse automation played a key role in the development of Järvenpää city’s knowledge-based management. At the heart of data warehouse automation was the concept modeling done by DSharp. When the data warehouse is built model based, no one has to code it. According to, Tero-Matti Kinanen, CEO of DSharp, the city of Järvenpää has understood very well what agile development means.

– The city of Järvenpää has put ready-made reports into use and in this way has been able to immediately enjoy the results of the work. Significant benefits from data warehouse automation have been obtained at a fast pace, says Tero-Matti Kinanen

Business benefits have always been the red thread of the work.

– Business modeling has played an absolutely central role in the fact that the city of Järvenpää has risen to the forefront of the municipal sector in knowledge management, says Kinanen.

Data Warehouse Automation

During 2018-2020 LUT University went through major changes and mergers. The need for collecting and unifying reliable data to feed reporting, analytics and forecasting became acute. LUT, Cerion and DSharp co-operated in specifying and implementing a modern, scalable and flexible data platform to improve support for decision making in the new organization. In parallel LUT has also succeeded in creating a common data governance model for further development of the BI-solution.

During the first phase LUT has trained its own personnel to use the D# methodology and tools, growing into new age data professionals, and is now able to independently maintain and further develop the solution. Read more about the success story (in finnish) here.

The roles of DSharp experts in the first phase were:

  • Training and coaching customer and partner experts
  • Lead consultant for conceptual modeling and solution design
  • Methodology and tool box consulting and developer support
