From Four Hours to Four Minutes.
Flawed Processes
  • Tallan facilitated the integration of disparate data sources totaling over 3 billion records, which enhanced the real estate firm’s existing reporting and analytics capabilities. The data was consolidated, refined, and combined into a dimensional model and fed into a Power BI report to allow analysis and reporting against the new platform. Among other features, the new Power BI report included the ability to break down transactional level metrics.
  • As part of a Proof of Concept, the client’s IT team found it was taking over 4 hours to process 500M rows in their application. Using Azure Databricks, a 60x performance improvement was achieved, ultimately paring a four-hour process down to four minutes!
