Data - Large Financial Services Firm

Houston, TX

Business Challenge

A rapidly growing technology service provider to the largest banks, pension funds and insurance companies in the world is experiencing dramatic growth in their business.  As a result, the daily volume of transactions and data feeds was growing at an exponential rate and started stretching their own in-house capacity and capabilities. 

The client turned to ixStrata to provide senior database developers to supplement their own resources and provide additional capacity and skill sets.

ixStrata Solution

ixStrata provides several senior database developers on a long-term basis to provide several services, including:

  • Automation of ETL processes,
  • Development, implementation and ongoing operational repsonsibility for SSIS packages,
  • Automation of validation and error checking for incoming data feeds,
  • Ongoing DevOps and monitoring capabilities, and
  • Bandwidth and additional capacity to handle short term spikes in demand.

Also, by using a combination of on-shore and off-shore resources, we are not just in a position to lower costs for the client, but also provide extended coverage on a daily basis to ensure smooth operations and rapid reaction to any issues with external incoming data feeds.
