    This case study will cover portfolio creation on business intelligence developed by Toyota Motor North America and Autodesk Consulting. We will discuss Toyota's business requirements, KPIs, and metrics. We'll evaluate Autodesk sources—including Data Connector and the Autodesk Platform Services Token Flex API—against Toyota's requirements. The presentation will teach BI development from raw data extracted from Autodesk products. It will list technical aspects of the ELT process for data extracting, loading, and transforming. An area of focus will be the data engineering processes required to produce meaningful consolidated tables, where data are sliced and diced to target KPIs. The final products include modules' BI dashboards for Executive Overview, RFIs, Issues, Submittals, Forms, Assets, and token consumption, which transform raw data into actionable insights that inform tactical business decisions. The visuals generated from BI equip Toyota with detailed intelligence about the state of the business.
