Big Data and DW/BI Practice
Even though new big data technologies can bring down the overall infrastructure costs associated with storing and processing data to a significant level, leadership and technical talent costs can easily offset the capital savings. The scarcity of specialized big data programming skills including data scientists and Hadoop developers can make it impossible to staff a project.
At D2 Analytics Search Partners, we hire expert talents in the following areas of big data and DW/BI:
1. Data Warehouse Architecture
Different data warehousing systems have different structures. Some may have an ODS (operational data store), while some may have multiple data marts. Some may have a small number of data sources, while some may have dozens of data sources. In view of this, D2 Analytics Search Partners provides exceptionally skilled architects, engineers and senior leaders for the clients having needs from a few numbers of data marts to extremely complex Online Integrated Data Warehousing System.
2. Data Management
(i) Master Data Management (MDM)
Master Data is the high-value, core information used to support critical business processes across the enterprise. It is at the core of every business decision today. One of the greatest challenges organizations facing is delivering consolidated and reliable business-critical data (or) master data - to the management that decision makers rely on every day.
Leading firms in financial services, life sciences, manufacturing, healthcare, government, energy and other industries rely on this business critical data to cut costs and drive revenue by improving operations and making more informed decisions across the enterprise.
At D2 Analytics Search Partners, we empower our clients in banking, insurance, retail, government, and healthcare by providing world class MDM experts, a crucial role in translating data into meaningful and highly useful intelligence.
(ii) Meta Data Management
If your company is in the process of making a knowledge management solution, creating a metadata schema and developing a system in which metadata is managed are very important. In such a project, a dedicated metadata management system is crucial in order to adhere to metadata and information management standards. At d2, we provide expert leaders in Meta Data Management, which can make sure that the metadata is complete, current and correct at any given time.
(iii) Data Quality Management
Ultimately, data quality is a balance. Using two of the more common metrics of data quality - completeness and accuracy - we see that to have data that is both 100% accurate and 100% complete can be very expensive. Within a business intelligence environment, there are several roles that are involved in data quality management: Program Manager, Project Leader, Organization Change Agent, Business Analyst, Data Analyst and Data Steward etc., D2 Analytics Search Partners provides our clients, an expert assistance for their leadership talent hiring in data quality management with critical skillsets including data profiling, data quality, data integration and data augmentation.
(iv) Big Data Governance
Undertaking the creation of a data governance program can be a daunting task. You need the right people, in the right roles, doing the right things, at the right time and in the right sequence. If even one of these is misaligned, your efforts will fail.
Firstly, as we already know, business buy-in is critical to success. However, more importantly, the business must have not only the passion and the empowerment but also skilled data resources (such as data champions, data stewards and even data scientists) that have the knowledge to identify "what needs to get it done".
At D2 Analytics Search Partners, our expert search partners provide competent manpower to our clients in critical areas of the data governance.
3. Business Intelligence - Data Discovery
Business intelligence (BI) has gained considerable traction since its introduction as "decision support systems" in the 1960s. BI helps organizations organize and analyze data to make better decisions. This could include internal data from company departments as well as data from external sources, such as marketing data services, social media channels or even macroeconomic information.
The BI market is growing rapidly because of the proliferation of data. Over the past few decades, companies that have deployed ERP, CRM and other applications are now sitting on top of zettabytes of data that can add significant value to their business. In addition, the growth of the Web has increased the demand for tools that can analyze large data sets.
As leaders in the field, we are particularly well placed to support our clients with their specialized leadership talent needs in key areas of Business Intelligence and the roles which are typical for a data warehouse project including - Technical Architect, ETL Developers, OLAP Developers, Data Modelers and QA Group.
