Project Overview

The project is about developing a business intelligence and analytics application for a leading storage service provider in the USA, helping film, video and broadcast professionals work more efficiently and save big time on the cost front. The organization offers a variety of data management tools integrated into a single, globally managed, secure solution. It provides a single, overarching platform with multiple services that comprehensively addresses growing and complex unstructured data management (UDM) tasks.

They were keen to design and develop a business intelligence solution that can help the organization derive meaningful insights through analytics capabilities. They needed the real-time status of storage and other visualization capabilities to analyse data storage space utilization.

The client was finding it difficult to come up with a consolidated database and a set of reports that could give them detailed analytics. There was high occurrence of replication, availability, redundancy storage, and backup.

It was difficult to avail real-time monitoring of storage status and availability in different sites. Backup planning and monitoring was a tough task and so was an aesthetically rich analysis of data.

Diagnosing the challenges of the client, SPEC INDIA helped the customer choose the best suitable analytics tool for their needs and helped them derive meaningful insights through analytics capabilities.
