The Challenge

  • Customer had multiple backend systems in place were data was copied several times. No golden version of their data 
  • Preventive maintenance: keeping track of delivered , active autonomics worldwide
  • As a scale-out the number of autonomics (devices) grows quite fast . Their first version of the autonomic could not be controlled remotely and was only accessible onsite by bluetooth. 
  • Analysing their data was time consuming and manual labour (potential erroneous) 

What we delivered

  • Creation of the AWS landing zone
  • Merapar created a data lake with the purpose of having 1 single source of data were all the 3rd parties would send their data
  • Integration with existing customer tooling (amongst PowerBI)
  • Training of Bird Control team members (developers and Admins) to autonomously maintain and extend the platform

The outcome

  • Automated process for presenting and analysing end to end dataflow 
  • Saving significant data-analyst effort
  • Opening up the opportunity to be a data-driven company
  • Achieved unified, near real-time reporting throughout the whole organisation
