Business Problem & Impacts
A consumer electronics company with global manufacturing and marketing operations relied on an unprecedentedly large and complex data warehouse to support daily operations. The problem emerged as the execution of reports containing large sets of data for analysis slowed down the system response time and disrupted daily operations.

Designed and built a low-code platform to efficiently extract data and make it available for analysis. Subsequent improvements have incorporated Modular Coding with Smart Logic that facilitate rapid changes in existing extracts and reduce the development time of future data targets.
The platform consists of three distinct areas:
