The diversified manufacturer of hand tools, automotive parts, and specialty machines is using Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to get better insights into its global business.
Unior Group, based in Zreče, Slovenia, supplies a wide range of products and services—from manufacturing specialized automotive and bicycle tools, to machine equipment, to offering metal processing, and even tourism services.
The company, which was founded in 1919, traces its heritage to the rich blacksmith tradition of the Pohorje area of northeastern Slovenia. Unior employs nearly 4,000 people, the majority of them in Slovenia.
Unior produces roughly 200,000 items daily, but without a modern data management platform, “we couldn’t see where we should be focusing our business objectives.”Rok Planinšec, CIO, Unior Group
It was taking months for Unior Group, a global supplier of forging parts, hand tools, machine equipment, and tourism services, to derive meaningful insights from the millions of data records it was generating. But now, having implemented Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Analytics—both of which run on Oracle Gen 2 Cloud Infrastructure—the company gains those insights in a matter of seconds.
“With dashboards updating every day, we have the insights to make the right decisions,” says CIO Rok Planinšec. “We can see what stock we have, how we compare to the competition, and where to focus our spending and sales team.”
Planinšec calls it “a radical change,” but with Oracle Cloud “we’re not just keeping up, we are firmly in the driver’s seat.”
Thanks to the self-tuning and self-patching capabilities of Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, Unior now manages 85 million data records with no database administrators.
