Companhia Imobiliária de Brasília (Terracap), also known as Agência de Desenvolvimento do Distrito Federal (DF), or the Development Agency of the Federal District, is a company controlled by Brazil’s federal and federal district governments. By managing public lands and providing sustainable real estate projects, the company promotes socioeconomic development and quality of life for the federal district’s population. Established in 1972, the company manages federal district property through the use, acquisition, incorporation, encumbrance, or transfer of assets, as well as by directly or indirectly carrying out road construction projects in the district.
The company also oversees land sales and urbanization in the Noroeste neighborhood, the first sustainable neighborhood in Brazil. The project’s 220 buildings, on 243 hectares, use solar heating, recycled rainwater, and a suction system to transport household waste to a treatment center. This reduces garbage truck traffic and pollution in local communities. In addition, the company uses light emitting diode lamps for public lighting to conserve energy.
“Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition’s ease of use and flexibility in developing multiple views of sales performance and process automation were critical to our decision process. Furthermore, the solution’s easy integration with our 60 applications was another important factor,” said Geraldo Rodrigues Soares, IT coordinator, Terracap.
