Featured Case Study
MBNCanada Data Warehouse Redevelopment
April 17, 2023
MBNCanada engaged the Extranet User Manager (EUM) team to consult on implementing a secure data warehouse that can scale to meet the future needs of MBNCanada as they continue to expand and collaborate with participating municipalities. Built in Microsoft365 and Azure, the resulting solution was a portal and data warehouse implemented using the EUM product suite, which is hosted in MBNCanada's Azure instance in the Canadian data centre. EUM manages security through Azure AD. Each municipality, expert panel and committee has its own SharePoint collection, with permissions assigned based on Azure AD groups, and group membership managed through EUM.
