Challenge

The firm was challenged with two migration projects to their existing on-prem environment and Azure cloud environment to ingest their current data in third-party data sources successfully. The installation of the Zaloni Arena platform and data ingestion processes must be completed within four months to resolve pipeline pain points in the in-house built environments by the project’s 6-month marker. Additionally, with Arena’s unified data management approach and ability to provide the necessary governance and self-service data preparation for end-users, the organization prioritized their Salesforce use case initiative along with other use cases to benefit their customers.

Solution

The firm chose Zaloni for its ability to achieve various use cases and projects that efficiently manage and control their data. The company started installing the Zaloni Arena platform to begin the data migration process to their existing on-prem environment for UAT-based use cases. To expand upon data migration projects, Zaloni was also assigned a cloud migration project to install the Arena platform on their existing Azure cloud environment and ingest 3rd party data sources into their data environment. These projects pertain to the 3rd party deliverables and deployment plans: S&P, EVS, SYNC, OpenFGI, Libor Intex.

Result

In the first six months of working with the firm, Zaloni was able to install and deploy the Arena platform in the company’s on-prem and cloud-based data environments and update existing data pipelines to run more efficiently for designated use cases. With a fast implementation and improved efficiency, the firm experienced quick time to time to insight and utilized the actual value of stored and newly ingested data. Overall, Arena provided the organization’s teams with cost and time savings that not only enhanced team engagement but improved the performance of the company’s entire data landscape.
