How can you answer questions about the business with siloed data?

We design and build data infrastructure to help you connect information with the right tools and generate insights to improve decision-making.

Create a Clear and Cohesive Picture With Data

Having data centralized in the right place allows you to efficiently model the relationships, perform analytics, and generate insights automatically and at scale.

Our experts help you build a data infrastructure so everyone in your organization accesses the data they need to perform at a high level. Even your non-technical teams will be empowered to make better, data-driven decisions.

Data infrastructure is a collection of technologies that support the storage, management, and access to data and data insights. It centralizes data into a lake, then structures that data into a warehouse.

The layers of software sit between your data sources and a BI or Planning tool. When you layer a tool like Power BI on top of this infrastructure for reporting, it can democratize organizational data so business users increase capabilities by more easily accessing and leveraging data-driven insights.

Data infrastructure typically covers these elements:

  • Source
  • Ingestion
  • Storage
  • Transformation
  • Modeling
  • Analytics

Not that simple.

Data infrastructure is a combination of technologies designed to solve specific problems. Our team has competence in many different tools, so we can help you combine them to meet your needs.

While Azure is great for many enterprise teams because it strikes the right balance between user-friendliness and access to advanced features and customization options, we’re by no means a one-trick pony.

Besides Microsoft, we’re competent in Python, Databricks, and Snowflake so we’re well-equipped to build the best solution. We may use multiple elements from Azure or combine your existing on-prem applications with some cloud services.

A great starting point when designing your infrastructure is Collectiv’s Visioning Program. Through Visioning, we’ll help you choose the right tools for the job or figure out the optimal way to work with your existing infrastructure.
