Business Challenge

Faced with disparate data sources, the multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate encountered hurdles in aggregating and unifying customer information. The decentralized architecture led to fragmented insights, impacting personalized experiences and strategic decisions.

The existing silos impeded operational efficiency, hindering the conglomerate’s ability to derive comprehensive insights from its diverse data streams. This challenge prompted the need for a centralized data platform to streamline data integration and provide a holistic view of customer data, driving informed decision-making and enhancing overall operational efficiency.

Our Solution

To address the intricate data challenges, Factspan focused on creating a dynamic business and customer data platform, enabling a 360-degree view of customer interactions. Leveraging advanced tools, including AWS Glue, DMS, Kinesis, Lambda, and Snowflake, the company revamped its data architecture.

The revamped architecture involves the extraction of data from various sources, including RDBMS and event-based systems, using AWS Glue jobs and NiFi with RabbitMQ processor.

The transition from AWS Glue to AWS DMS facilitated efficient data contract generation and laid the foundation for building a Snowflake data warehouse using DBT tools.

Key to the solution is the implementation of a unified consumer experience (UCE) platform, aptly named ‘Guest 360’. This platform combines diverse data sources into a cohesive structure, providing enriched, cleansed, and normalized datasets. The implementation of Snowflake objects like streams, tasks, and DBT tools ensures a near real-time data pipeline for loading UCE data.

The architecture’s transformative power lies in its ability to consolidate data, ensuring a single source of truth for guest insights. By unifying data pipelines and creating a centralized data warehouse, the solution enhances the conglomerate’s decision making capabilities, operational efficiency, and lays the groundwork for future enhancements. The solution guarantees the organization’s adaptability to evolving business needs and positions the company for sustained success in the dynamic entertainment landscape.
