We had to get the underlying architecture right to deliver the various initiatives and projects the business wanted. Datalytyx provided an outstanding service. From the outset, the Datalytyx team understood what we wanted to achieve, helped us to formulate our strategy and approach, then enabled us to move forward very quickly.Cathy McCabe
The company had a legacy on-premises operational ERP system and data warehouse that was increasingly slow, difficult to maintain and limited in functionality for business intelligence to support decision-making. In addition, changes and additions could take a long time to implement on the legacy system, stretching the in-house IT team and diverting staff from more value added activity.
Datalytyx confirmed then implemented Talend Data Fabric to simplify and accelerate data cleansing and aggregation, plus an Amazon Redshift hosted solution to deliver a high performance petabyte-scale data warehouse in the cloud. Up to 7 years of granular historical data from Jaeger’s legacy operational data store (400 million rows) was quickly migrated.
With data extracted from operational systems daily or hourly compared to weekly with the former system, and external data including footfall traffic and website traffic via Google Analytics, Jaeger has a modern data warehouse available 24/7 and at a reduced total cost of ownership – with the flexibility to add additional data sources without limitation. Sales insight is produced hourly, with other data available including stock balances, product, cost, pricing, markdown and purchase orders. The new insights are helping support international growth plans while optimising individual retail outlets. The cloud-based nature not only enabled deployment in weeks plus easy scalability based on demand, the minimal capital expenditure meant greatly reduced risk compared to a traditional on-premises solution.
