Modern Data Platform: A Hero’s Path to Organizational Resilience

Lixar I.T. Tech

The Challenge

The world is rapidly changing and it is essential that every business learns to do more with less. Now is the time to solve your urgent business challenges, and putting your data to work is the best way to do that. 

Not only can strong data engineering lead to stronger insights about your business, a modern data platform means you can have these insights quickly, and can immediately start making decisions that will have a meaningful impact.

The Solution 

To be useful, data has to be curated and engineered with a specific purpose. Lixar has created a modern data platform that delivers End-to-End data solutions fast. This solution, called HeroPath, was born from years of production deployments, the streamlining of those deployments, and identifying the commonality between all aspects of the modern data platform. One must ingest data into a platform, store that data using a data lake approach, analyze that data with a modern tool (DataBricks), structure that data for consumption by an application or dashboard, and visualize the results.

We’ll help you develop a personalized data strategy; we’ll then set you up a production-level data pipeline using HeroPath, and within weeks, you’ll have access to production-grade analytics.

Built on Lixar’s 20+ years of proven data practice, we work quickly and effectively to:

  1. Ingest: understand your needs and pull in data that will help you meet them
  2. Transform: find the value in your data through cleaning, sorting, and modelling
  3. Engage: provide you with near real-time analytics displayed on an interactive dashboard

What Makes it Unique?

HeroPath is an accelerated infrastructure that is entirely personalized and scalable. Not only can we stand the solution up in just weeks, but we build it on only data that is relevant to you, with the best-in-class tools, chosen to meet your specific needs. Our components are scalable, which means you only pay for what you need, as you need it. This also means that as your business grows and evolves, our DevOps specialists can make changes on the fly, to ensure that your data is always optimal.

Why Does it Matter?

You can do more with less. Our solution is designed to help you find efficiencies through expert analytics. By understanding your business challenges and goals, we can build you a modern data engine that will allow you to:

  • Gain insights from rich data
  • Solve problems before they occur
  • See where, why, and how your resources may be overextended
  • Implement machine learning models and AI algorithms for predictive modelling 
  • Automate operations and help people do their jobs better
  • Make adjustments and receive instant feedback

Use Case: Valuable Analytics for an Energy Company

We recently worked with an Energy company that wanted to start using data in a significant way. Like many other companies in their industry, they had implemented IoT hardware but had not realized the value of the data ingested from those devices. They hoped that accessing data directly from their machines would help them learn more about their operations, and help them be more efficient, more safe, and more cost-effective in their practices. But a major challenge for this company was the lack of in-house expertise. Being new to data analytics meant that changing perceptions would be a large undertaking, and they needed a solution that would start them off on the right foot. Using HeroPath, Lixar provided this company with valuable analytics gathered through dashboards, visualizations, and reports. As a result, we were able to quickly demonstrate how having a strong data solution could help them improve efficiency, safety, and sustainability. The results were well-received and the company is now exploring the future possibilities that HeroPath has opened up for them.
