Success stories

Improved productivity by 30% by implementing an enrollment and billing data mart on Redshift for a leading healthcare provider

Inefficient, error-prone, manual data integration delayed delivery of enrollment and billing data mart for our client. Virtusa rearchitected the data integration layer with a parameterized, configurable open-source data transformation framework to manage end-to-end functionality. We demonstrated the ability to load data of ~90 GB in ~30 minutes that helped the client improve incremental data load performance by 40%, accelerate data mart delivery, and reduce the effort to build new data integration jobs by 50%.

Fast tracked clinical trials by 25% with modernized cloud data hubs for a top 10 global pharmaceutical company

Virtusa built an enterprise data hub on Redshift to consolidate clinical, commercial, and open datasets from 200+ sources. With our collaboration, the client reduced its TCO by consolidating data marts on Redshift. We also delivered a single, consistent, enterprise-wide version of the truth of clinical and commercial data for the consumption of multiple teams. The client realized 95% reduction in the time spent generating routine management and operational reports, 85% reduction in the time data scientists spent finding, wrangling, and integrating data. We also aided the client in implementing competitive AI/ML forecasting models with a target of less than 3% forecast deviation for finance features and attributes.

Built the GCP Data Foundation and migrated 18PB data from Hadoop to Google Cloud Dataproc for a leading advertising technical company

Virtusa migrated the client’s all on-prem analytics workloads on Google Cloud to decommission data centers before the imminent on-prem lease end date. We also created a centralized store of processed logs and aggregate metrics with appropriate permission to power core business and analytic requirements. The client also leveraged the benefits of a centralized ETL framework in the Cloud with CI/CD for deployment for Cloud Composer.
