Examples of some of our projects:
• One of our clients has recently made huge investments in marketing and sales using social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The client wants to see which of these social networks are producing positive outcomes and providing key opportunities. The data is the entire universe of social data, and reports need to mine through each entry to identify strengths and weaknesses. The consolidated, cleaned and transformed data needs to be presented using interactive Power BI visualization.
• Display website traffic data for ten million users per day. To display the web traffic pattern, you need to evaluate frontend technology alternatives (native HTML5 controls or Power BI and so on). Some of your considerations will be development and testing effort, browser compatibility, responsive UI, rendering speed, database connectivity and load time. You must come up with the optimal approach and implement it within three weeks.
Some of the tools used are Visual Studio 2017 and SQL Server 2017.
• For another client, we developed a Business Intelligence solution to pull high volume data (more than 150 million rows) from source tables efficiently. We developed visually rich reports that allow business users to analyze the data from a different perspective and do what-if analysis based on business needs. We developed ADF pipelines to pull a high volume of data in 30 minutes and developed reports using Power BI visualizations with optimal page performance.
