Data Platforms

Collecting data

We are addressing the challenge of multi-siloed, mixed technology enterprise IT environments to overcome issues like compliance, IT backlog, cost pressure and fragmented estates. Our solution delivers a repeatable, scalable architecture – delivered on-premise or in the cloud – that rapidly solves these client issues by consolidating multiple environments into a single, fully-managed platform.

Our solution helps our clients in areas like migrating or upgrading an environment, consolidating a multi-silo big data estate or modernising an entire analytics infrastructure. Backed up by certified engineers with many years of experience in delivering complex integration projects, we combine hardware and software into a single solution and manage it using our own proprietary tools.

Typical problems we help you to solve

Some of the challenges and issues that you may be encountering:

  • You operate in a complex regulatory environment and are struggling to achieve or maintain compliance.
  • You are encountering performance and/or user experience issues in your analytics environment.
  • Your business is being delayed by IT backlogs which are inhibiting your competitiveness and reducing time-to-value in project implementation.
  • You are looking to simplify the management and reduce the cost of a fragmented analytics environment.
  • You are suffering from a skills shortage or retention issue in key parts of their analytics capability, especially in the areas of SAS, Hadoop and open source analytics applications.
  • You are struggling to create an analytics platform that delivers innovation and growth.

Who will benefit?

This solution is being implemented by global enterprise clients with complex, fragmented analytics environments in industries like banking, insurance, manufacturing, energy, utilities and pharmaceuticals.

Typically, the organisational functions that will benefit from these services are lines of business like compliance, risk management, finance, marketing and, more broadly, any department with a high analytics dependency. We also work closely with IT departments to streamline this transformation and develop joint service level agreements that reflect organisational expectations.

How will this help you?

  • Significantly reduce total cost of ownership of your IT infrastructure.
  • Take an operational expenditure approach to budgeting with a managed service that overcomes capital investment issues.
  • Lower compliance risk and reduce the threat of penalties.
  • Improve analytics application performance and enhance the user experience.
  • Create a platform for innovation and growth.
  • Quicker deployment of new applications with improved support for existing applications.
  • Capacity planning support to accelerate the delivery of additional infrastructure when it’s needed.
  • On-premise deployments supported via a remote managed service or private and hybrid cloud options to benefit from economies of scale.
  • Security-assured solution from an ISO27001-certified service provider.

D4t4 in action

Platform consolidation and management of mission-critical risk environment for a top 5 global bank

Business challenge:

Our client was struggling with a fragmented analytics estate, operating at poor performance levels and delivering a sub-optimal user experience. In addition, a key driver for change was that outdated versions of operational software were unsupported, leading to potential issues with regulatory compliance.

This was an urgent requirement with compliance deadlines looming and substantial fines threatened.

Our solution:

Rather than effecting a short-term fix to overcome these challenges though, D4t4 Solutions proposed a transformational approach that aimed to create a lasting solution to overcome all of the challenges holding the bank back.

The solution that we delivered has redefined the way in which our client operates its risk analytics platform, significantly reducing cost, considerably improving performance and enhancing the experience of analytics users. Our consolidation of their platform has also been architected in such a way that it can scale very rapidly, allowing the bank to flex its hardware as requirements dictate.

The success of this project has meant that D4t4 Solutions has been invited to expand its footprint within the bank to assist in new areas.
