With no single source of truth for data sources, input data comprising large documents containing images and non-standard document formats was a challenge. The organization lacked a formal data warehouse and was facing data credibility & availability issues. There was also an additional challenge of data extraction as large amounts of information, in the form of thousands of documents, was either sent through email or downloaded from an external website. This resulted in the data science team spending countless hours to manually open documents using specialized legal document viewers to extract text for their predictive analytics applications.
