An analytics platform that will scale with data growth

A major financial services corporation’s principal business is to process payments between the banks of merchants and the card issuing banks or credit unions, which leverage the brand’s debit or credit services. As part of the financial inclusion initiatives globally, the client in partnership with financial institutions, governments & NGO’s, is leveraging its core digital technologies to advance agriculture, transform informal to formal financial distribution channels and increase the reach of health service by providing visibility into the overall value chain.

The client needed an analytics platform that will scale with data growth from identified sources, handle data ingestions processes, transform data, and continue to ingest new data sources to develop new program level KPI’s & generate insights on how each program is performing.
