Lining Up a Best-Fit Architecture

“Neudesic dug deep to understand the problems we needed to solve, rather than just what technology to deploy – careful consideration went into uncovering our business objectives as well as our internal IT skillsets. This understanding moved us forward in an intelligent manner, evaluating various tools for performance vs long-term supportability. The result was a smart combination of Microsoft technologies, with Azure as a service becoming one of the most important components of our data analytics architecture.”

Technology Leadership on Azure Cloud

“Neudesic demonstrated that a cloud solution would set us apart. They worked both strategically and tactically on our behalf and transferred extensive knowledge to our own infrastructure team in the process of implementation. We are currently self-sufficient in managing our full platform of Azure-based systems.”

Creating a Modern Data Platform

“Enterprise data analytics is an art, with significant performance requirements driving the transformation and preparation of data. Neudesic recognized the need to streamline operations such as high-volume data movement, while leveraging in-memory capabilities to support analysis by end users. Tapping into deep Microsoft and Azure expertise, the team was able to marry the features of various technologies to create an intelligent, full-featured platform and bring in additional components to fill in gaps unique to our needs. Implementing a SQL-based platform with Azure extensions was ideal for us internally – creating a modern data platform optimized for advanced analytics.”

Effective Analytics Capitalize on a Single Truth

“With an intelligent, integrated platform, data is not susceptible to interpretation by different stakeholders. Today our analytics are based a unified, single version of data, capitalizing on deep insight that is both consistent and current. We are evaluating and predicting performance more effectively than ever and creating a culture of analytics across the agency.”
