For some companies such as graze, the tech-led multichannel retailer of healthy snacks established in UK, how you utilize data within the organization is key. For Anthony Fletcher, CEO, Technology and data analysis increasingly allow you to learn more about your customers and how best to work with them, with less cost.
On the other spectrum, for the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry, data storage and data quality are integral to manage global medical safety and high volume data in general.
Arcadia, a multi-million pound company working extensively with Fortune 500 companies designing and building custom software, specializes in complex web solutions, big data, AI and machine learning, and is ISO 27001 certified by British Standards Institute (BSI).
Dmitri Adov, Technical Director at Arcadia, breaks down the big data and reporting project for a provider of online surveys platform with thousands of clients in most European countries:
The reporting was initially created in a simple way and worked with a transactional database. As data volume grew, the reporting became slower and slower. Besides, running a number of complex reports affected the survey platform performance.
The best approach to improve reporting performance and keep survey platform stability was using a data warehouse and an OLAP cube built on SQL Server Analysis Services. Reporting application was re-engineered to support multidimensional data queries.
The solution suggested and implemented by Arcadia's team improved the scalability of the reporting and entire survey platform.
As the story of data and analytics keeps evolving, keeping up to date with the latest custom tailored technologies is imperative in staying ahead of the competition.
