Challenge at hand

The client is an HR tech giant that provides its customers with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Their customers used disparate, unconnected off-the-shelf applications for various business functions. It prevented them from generating meaningful, organization-wide KPIs. Difficulties in curating the data from such disparate sources hampered any Business Intelligence (BI) operations challenging.

Proposed Solution

TechVariable developed a connector engine, making it possible to extract customizable user-defined data from any data source. The connector supports the OData sources, including Microsoft Azure, SharePoint, Office 365, Salesforce, and Tableau. It also allows data extraction from non-OData sources like JIRA, REST, and SOAP APIs. The extracted data is then brought to the connector/adapter store based on the user-inputs.

The connector would fetch details of available data based on the application chosen by the user. The user can then select the data types required for analysis. The connector then injects the data into the BI pipeline to extract valuable insights in the form of KPIs.
