DART leverages business intelligence to manage enterprise data


Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), a transportation agency serving Dallas and 12 suburbs, uses IBM Analytics to more efficiently manage its budget and enterprise resources.

Sarah Fontenot-Hill, Senior Manager Projects and Financial Planning, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, explains "Budgeting in government is important because you have so many clients. You have operations, you have administration, you have everybody that’s supposed to be working together. So it’s good to have a product that you can merge everything together and everybody knows what the others are doing."
