Licensing Executives Society International
The Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) is an association comprised of men and women who have an interest in the transfer of technology, or licensing of intellectual property rights – from technical know how and patented inventions to software, copyright and trademarks. It is strictly non-political and is free to grow by the creation of member societies throughout the world irrespective of politics or the state of technology development. LES International has a constitution and by-laws.
Licensing Executives Society International is an association comprised of men and women who have an interest in the transfer of technology, or licensing of intellectual property rights with more than 10,000 members worldwide. The organization’s website, database, email and business has been growing rapidly for the past several years—so fast, in fact, that its business intelligence (BI) infrastructure could not keep up with the data growth. System performance and customization was another challenge, partly because there is no dedicated systems administrator and web developer to maintain the server and manage the firm’s database system, which was based on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 data management software.
LESI turned to Apptics for help in finding a technology partner to build a new data warehouse. In mid 2007, Apptics helped LESI in revamping their website, creating a data warehouse, hosting email and developing new admin and member facing functionalities in the website. Membership data was migrated from their current data store to MS SQL Server 2005.
LESI staff can now get fast access to real-time member data and can create and view analytical reports based on this data.
With its new solution, LESI can process data 30 percent faster and has a more scalable system to handle data growth. Also, LESI saves resources it would have spent designing a similar system, staff can take advantage of simplified administration, and the solution’s efficiency is contributing to increased productivity.
