Our client, a top UK grocer, with retail stores across the UK, Ireland and Central Europe, deals with an immense amount of data and has several teams dedicated to collecting, organizing and analyzing this data. This constrains the team’s flexibility and prolonged processes. VirtusLab automated and shortened the onboarding process for new projects and enabled sustainable growth.
The client’s Data Science Team is responsible for gathering insights from complex data sets. They were dealing with the limitations of a computing cluster, requiring numerous manual processes at the beginning of each project. The team’s flexibility was constrained by the costly and time-consuming process of implementing changes in the cluster, which left them with limited control over their resources. As a result, the team had to rely on their own resources to learn how to use their preferred tools and create a considerable amount of automation to replicate any processes. This had a negative impact on several areas of the company:
Overall, there was a lack of a clear community among developers due to the chaos of information belonging solely to the developers working on a particular project.
VirtusLab’s Data Team automated onboarding processes for each project on the cloud. The priority was a solution with the ability to replicate cloud infrastructure across different projects in the organisation. The first step was conducting an analysis comparing the resources of each data scientist in the team. This enabled us to get a better understanding of the team’s competencies and needs. The needs varied from each other.
VirtusLab successfully developed comprehensive automation for the DS team to use without difficulty, while also ensuring that adding new modules would be a simple process. Our Cloud and Data department were able to build a core foundation that primarily consists of Terraform, as well as Terragrunt. We provided the client’s team with tools they are familiar with to ensure a smooth deployment. The cooperation with the client still continues, as becoming a data-driven solution is an ongoing process.
The solution is a foundation that is flexible enough to work with any technology or component added on top of it. This enables the tool to fit into any project and meet any needs of the team while having a unified element to it, eliminating the challenges the client faced and increasing the Data Team’s efficiency.
