For more than 20 years our client has been a leading global big data and market intelligence provider
for the entire foodservice & restaurant industry serving millions of operators worldwide.
Since 1995, the client has been assisting its customers, both in Europe and North America, by providing them with a global vision and an in-depth understanding of the Foodservice market.
This resulted in having more data than ever at the client’s disposal. Data volumes were continuing to grow and so are the possibilities of what can be done with so much raw data available.
However, these possibilities were limited by company’s insufficient knowledge about Big Data technologies and data security best practices.
Handling with Big Data, the enterprise faced critical challenges:
Legacy data systems were not unified
and varied across countries, impacting other divisions’ ability to access the data and to expand to new markets quickly.
lacked the ability to support instant access to the data remotely,
limiting providers’ options for monetization.
Employees productivity was limited
by the necessity to process the data manually, resulting in significant routine operating expenses.
Building a new, data-driven environment
We were asked to help analyze, classify and unify all the client’s data, create a cloud infrastructure and migrate all the Big Datasets there.
Our business teams, data experts and engineers worked hand in hand to build a new technological Big Data environment.
We structured the project into 3 key phases
Legacy Data Structure and
IT Infrastructure Review
Solution Design and
Unification of Data
Creation of cloud
Development of Public API
and web tools
A Digitally Ready Enterprise
Ongoing support to facilitate a continuous business growth and innovative, data-driven vision of the enterprise.
The journey: 1.5 year to revolutionize client’s databases
Regional data processing systems were unified and thus became easily adaptable for new markets, resulting in an accelerated time to market for new regions.
Instant remote access to the data was implemented introducing new opportunities for monetization.
Data processing was automated streamlining the employees’ productivity and minimizing routine operating expenses.
Big Data Optimization
Through Big Data, Cloud and Process Automation, we helped the client to modernize their legacy system,
as a result introducing an ability to handle Big Data sets securely.
A large amount of data was fragmented across the countries, with much of it conficting, incomplete or inaccurate.
Data was classified and segmented by our senior data experts, resulting in the creation of a unified view of the Big Data Structure as a future standard.
We created a cloud infrastructure to host a new database, bringing high-scalability and resistance.
Having determined the standard, we conducted migration from the old on-premises to the Cloud with the help of left and shift migration.
Public API and web tool
The data was coming directly from a wide range of sources, some of which could not be trusted to be secure and compliant within organizational standards.
Data security best practices were introduced, including creation of public API for API users and webtool (platform) for web users.
After 2 years of the launch of new cloud infrastructure, the key metrics have shown the impact.
