Unifying Data Sources in a Modern Data Platform


One of the largest crane, rigging and equipment hauling companies in the construction industry needed to unify disparate data sources across their many branches. Tallan leveraged DPi30, a Microsoft funded Data Platform in 30 days engagement for a three-phased approach that effectively transitioned the organization to an Azure environmentIn just 30 days, we pulled GPS data from their fleet of trucks into a modern data platformand enabled the customer to find ways to drive analytics and better support both their drivers and customers in terms of more efficient delivery and tracking.
