application modernization – CONSULTING

Global consulting firm captures data at the speed of business

Overview

Businesses can sometimes feel as if they are caught up in a technological arms race.

They’re pressured to continually improve IT infrastructure, network capabilities and software platforms to keep up with the competition. Even the largest enterprises are not immune to this experience, as highlighted by one of our clients in the consulting space. Our client is one of the five biggest consulting firms in the world, but aging technology prevented it from running at full capacity. In particular, the organization was unable to achieve real-time data capture, aggregation and analysis with its existing sales dashboard.

Enlisting the help of One Six Solutions, company leaders set out to replace slow internal systems and processes with a data warehouse solution built to capture and produce financial and operational metrics as soon as they materialized.

Our Solution

Supporting real-time reporting and analysis

One Six Solutions experts worked alongside our client’s development team to architect a solution that could support sub-second response times. Together, our teams built out the service and caching layers to facilitate data storage with downstream systems. ElasticSearch provided the capacity needed to store vast quantities of unstructured data coming into the organization through numerous sources, as well as aggregate that data at incredibly fast speeds.

We also created new processes to refresh data at set intervals, including real-time data from our client’s enterprise service bus. Our team significantly reworked internal processes by building complex logic to handle financial calculations, real-time currency conversion and other time-consuming tasks.

The Results

One Six Solutions’ contributions to this project helped streamline data aggregation and reporting, enabling our client to dynamically respond to market changes in real time. In addition, the solution our team developed set the standard for modern single page applications across the organization.
