Unlocking the Power of Data: How Info Alchemy Transformed Philippine Seven’s Success with Data Reliability and Availability

In today’s fast-paced, data-driven world, reliable and accessible data is the lifeblood of successful businesses. For companies like Philippine Seven Corporation, known as Philippine Seven or 7-Eleven, data is the key to gaining valuable insights, identifying trends, and making strategic decisions that drive their success. Data reliability is the bedrock of trust in any organization’s data. It ensures that the information used for decision-making is accurate, dependable, and free from errors or biases. On the other hand, data availability ensures that critical data is accessible to the organization, its partners, and end-users whenever and wherever it is needed.

The Challenge: Voluminous Data from Multiple Sources

With over 3,000 stores in the Philippines alone, Philippine Seven encountered a significant challenge in handling vast amounts of data from multiple sources on a day-to-day basis. The company faced recurring data issues, making it difficult to ensure data reliability and availability to all stakeholders.

The Solution: A Single Repository for Integrated Data

Enter Info Alchemy and Amazon Web Services (AWS) – with a shared vision of revolutionizing data management for businesses. Together, they implemented a Data Lake House Solution for Philippine Seven, reshaping the way the company approached its data challenges.

Implementing a Data Lake House architecture on AWS, Info Alchemy enabled Philippine Seven to store its voluminous data in one place, including the raw and detailed information sourced from multiple data sources. The objective was to have a single repository of integrated data for their analytical and reporting needs. The solution enabled the automated data loading and consolidation into a Data Lake + Data Warehouse environment to support data analysis and decision-making.

Empowering Data Reliability and Availability

Prior to the deployment of the Data Lake House Solution, PH Seven encountered difficulties in handling a large amount of data from multiple sources. Kristene Anne Tuibeo, the Business Systems Section Manager of PH Seven, emphasized the challenge of ensuring data availability to all users or stakeholders.

The migration of their data warehouse to the cloud, with the help of Info Alchemy and its partnership with AWS, significantly improved data reliability and data availability. Leveraging cloud storage and big data technologies, the company’s data management capabilities took a giant leap forward.

Cost Savings and Enhanced Productivity

Aside from the overall improvement in data management productivity, Philippine Seven gained cost savings even with the higher volume of data that the solution was able to handle, maintenance and support costs decreased significantly after migrating to the cloud.

“Although the infrastructure costs have increased which is directly correlated to the amount of data we now handle, maintenance and support costs have gone down significantly since we migrated.”

With the Data Lake House architecture supporting parallel processing, PH Seven’s data ingestion and processing speeds were greatly enhanced. This reduction in processing time enabled real-time or near-real-time analytics, empowering the company to make swift and informed decisions.

Invaluable Implementation Services

PH Seven extended its sincere gratitude to the Info Alchemy Team for its invaluable assistance in deploying the Data Lake House Solution. The seamless development process, knowledge transfer, training, and after-sales support exceeded their expectations.

“We were very satisfied with the implementation services of Info Alchemy. All our requests were accommodated, development was closely monitored, knowledge transfer and training were properly performed, and after-sales support and check-ins were carried out.”

Unlocking the Full Potential of Data Assets

Info Alchemy and AWS have truly revolutionized Philippine Seven’s data management capabilities. By unlocking the full potential of the company’s data assets, they have paved the way for future growth and success.

In conclusion, Info Alchemy’s partnership with AWS has not only transformed data management for Philippine Seven but has also redefined the way businesses approach data reliability and availability. The success story of Philippine Seven stands as a testament to the power of data when harnessed effectively, making Info Alchemy’s Data Lake House implementation services a compelling choice for businesses seeking to unleash their data’s true potential.
