Tukaş works with regional farmers to source ingredients for its food products. In 2011, the company procured more than 180,000 tons of raw materials from 2,500 farmers in the Turkish Aegean and Marmara regions, thus making an important contribution to the agricultural economy in Turkey. The company exports approximately 30% of its production.
“We rely on Oracle Database and Oracle Business Intelligence because they provide an outstanding price-performance ratio and enable us to drive operational excellence,” said Hülya Gürsözer, corporate strategy and brand management coordinator, Tukaş Gıda Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş.
“We designed a multiphase project together with Oracle partner G Teknoloji. We established a data warehouse based on Oracle Database and collected data from different in-house and external applications to have a robust repository. Then, we created BI reports and dashboards that substantially optimized our decision-making,” Gürsözer said. “But, we will not stop there. Phases three and four include expanding BI to other areas, such as human resources, suppliers, production, and financials, as well as modeling business scenarios with Oracle Essbase. In phase five, we plan to develop a corporate score card system with Oracle solutions.”
“Oracle partner G Teknoloji provided tremendous expertise in Oracle BI technology that was instrumental in helping us to successfully complete the first three phases of our BI environment that is highly innovative in the Turkish food industry,” Gürsözer said.
