Transformation using Big Data Analytics BEHIND THE SCENES

Data Quality

Data Quality Testing and Services

Data quality is listed as one of the significant roadblocks to the success of advanced analytics project dealing with disparate data sources. Disputing results when they don’t appear to be accurate, raising suspicions about whether a data platform can be trusted. Excelacom has a long and successful track record of traditional IT testing. This core competency has been transitioned to help companies address data quality issues in this new data-driven age. Currently, companies make increasingly more decisions based on data making data quality a critical part of running your business. Excelacom has experience with data quality validation in the following areas:

Billing Systems Migration

We have helped multiple companies ensure maximum project success with minimal customer impact during the consolidation of legacy systems into one via pre-testing, post-testing and rating/rules validation.

Streaming Network Data

Excelacom validated the completeness and accuracy of network streams which were used for a $400M digital marketing project.

Data Classification

Excelacom validatesss the output of third-party vendors who classified network stream data and stored it in a reporting data mart. Excelacom ensured that the vendor correctly classified a high percentage of the data streams to meet marketing standards.

Geospatial Data Capture

Excelacom validated geospatial data generated from cell tower triangulation and provided its client with a consistent report of the health and accuracy of the data capture.

Retail Store Transaction Time

Retail Store Transaction Time

Excelacom worked with a company with a significant retail presence and created a new way of measuring the required time for sales reps to complete a sale. The dataset became the company standard for sales rep coaching, resource planning, and was used to measure the success of multiple retail efficiency initiatives. This implementation was performed via a small team using existing company data resources, proving that large data initiatives can be delivered for a low cost when working with the right consulting partner.

Salesforce

Salesforce Einstein Data Integration & Performance Results

Excelacom helped a company with a broad Salesforce implementation which was rolled out to over 15,000 users. Specifically, Excelacom was responsible for measuring the success and financial ROI of the project. In order to do this, Excelacom consulted on the proper performance criteria and then delivered numerous reporting capabilities which measured according to the agreed standards. That enabled the project to prove its ROI within multiple sales hierarchies and sales channels with an extremely accurate level of detail. Project sponsors were able to justify the expansion of the project to an additional 30,000 users, utilizing the data. Making it the largest successful project in the entire business group.

Web Analytics

Web Analytics for Internal Applications

Excelacom delivered a successful web analytics implementation for a customer who wanted to measure the usage and success of applications within their retail store. Excelacom designed the entire system and saved the client millions of dollars by identifying existing software licenses that could be leveraged. Upon implementation, Excelacom’s client was able to measure activities that were previously not measurable. Some examples are:

  • Accuracy of prediction models used by the system
  • Customer behavior patterns
  • Customer lists of unsuccessful sales for use by CRM teams
  • System flow efficiencies

Adaptive Customer Management

Using Adaptive Customer Management providers can drive personalized services by understanding and predicting three different types of needs, then utilizing them in the creation of competitive advantage:

1. Basic needs

24 x 7 x 365, including basic voice and data levels. Under-usage of plan limits and features creates the perception that the subscriber is overpaying for unused features. (By the same measure, over-usage penalties diminish loyalty and fuels competitors, as customers are motivated to look for cheaper options or “all-in” plans from competitors).

2. Periodic and lifestyle needs

Accessing known patterns from subscriber’s data, adding usage and revenue.

3. Spot needs

Predicting event and usage patterns for premium revenue based on any occasion, event, time, or location.

Best practice methodology for maximum ROI from Big Data Analytics

  • Lack of robust architecture generally leads to inconsistent results (i.e., reports with different values for the same thing, causing confusion and loss of credibility)
  • Lack of modern architecture reduces the opportunity for advanced use cases, such as voice interaction, machine learning, and analysis of unstructured data
  • Lack of stable architecture generally leads to significant re-coding and re-mapping of the same data multiple times

Capture ALL source data in the data lake

  • Improve data availability
  • Quickly recover data elements for future use
  • Single pull is more efficient
  • More convenient integration of numerous sources if stored together

Provide a consistent, reusable framework

  • Simplified training efforts
  • Timely defect removal
  • Convenient updates as new tools become available
  • Easier to tune
  • Centralized security

Build a virtual metadata library

  • Reduce the amount of physical movement
  • Metadata can provide multiple views of the same data
  • Centralized data governance
  • Takes advantage of modern data stores

Iteratively integrate new data over time

  • Provides value faster
  • Provides synergy and re-usability over time
  • Proper scope of effect and span of control

Provide support for data in the architecture

  • Analytics value increases when multiple types and more data can be analyzed
  • Since it’s not one-size-fits-all, we’re able to provide more flexibility, efficiency, and overall savings

Capture data in its “raw” form in the data lake

  • Minimize the risk of lost data due to early transformation and current case usage only
  • Quickly pull up data as-is from source systems (with minimal common metadata added – e.g., data lineage
