Big Data Engineering for Improved Analytics

Customer Challenge

A marketing analytics company that houses and analyzes large amounts of data for a top grocery retailer required modernization of their big data platforms (on prem and in cloud) to scale and deliver insights.

Innovative Solution

Illumination Works is retooling legacy data pipelines into modern data platforms like Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure Platform, and on-prem Hadoop to shrink the deliver time of long-loop analytics. Legacy systems took up to a month to run long queries to drive deep learning results on massive datasets. Modern platforms can produce results in minutes when correctly reengineered.
