BIG DATA BOOSTS
FOODSERVICE MARKET
INTELLIGENCE

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.

CHALLENGES

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.

  • On-premise infrastructure 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.

SOLUTION

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

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.
