edo engages OpenBI to enhance big data and business intelligence capabilities to accommodate rapid business growth.
Chicago, March 2013 – OpenBI, LLC, a leading professional services firm specializing in big data, analytics and business intelligence solutions, recently completed a big data and business intelligence project with edo, who offers a card-linked local offers platform that targets customers based on their real-world spending behavior, providing edo the ability to enhance and expand their BI analytics capabilities.
edo was growing its customer base at a tremendous rate and, at the same time, developing more innovative ways in which to serve their customers. This growth and innovation led to a need for a more robust infrastructure. They consulted OpenBI, with their extensive experience with big data, BI and analytics, to determine the best technologies to meet their growing needs, and to develop a plan to implement and transition to this new infrastructure. OpenBI recommended and ultimately deployed a Cloudera Hadoop and Vectorwise database hybrid data platform powered by Pentaho with Tableau and R for analytics.
“Using OpenBI to assist us shortened the time to production and the overall cost,” said Tim Garnto, Vice President of Product Engineering at edo. “They knew the market and were able to advise us on the best tools for our problem, while also delivering a high quality solution.”
