Our client provides science-driven drug testing and consulting services.

Our client used two commercial software systems to manage operations, but they weren’t integrated with each other, which created problems with extracting reports related to the company’s accounts receivable. Identifying all receivables took several days of cumbersome manual work, including downloading data into Excel files.


Action

Infogain revamped the client’s data estate and built a modern data platform to bridge the gap between the two systems, clean the data, build a warehouse, and develop a BI landscape to improve its enterprise reporting and analytics.

Infogain delivered analytics so clinicians and healthcare providers could identify receivables and make other business decisions. We leveraged Azure Blob Storage and Azure SQL Data Warehouse to implement a cloud-native data and analytics platform. This enabled the client to implement machine learning algorithms and run complex queries to analyze petabytes of data.

  • Built a data extraction service to move data in different formats to a common staging area within Azure SQL Data Warehouse
  • Leveraged PolyBase for big data processing and better data loading performance, reducing process time from hours to minutes
  • Developed Power BI reports to execute daily dashboards and reports showing status of receivables
