“In the age of digital, data as a game-changer is an understatement,” begins Emil Capino, founder, president and COO of Info Alchemy Corporation, as he touches upon the concept of data being a flywheel of innovation, which leads to digital transformation. Backed by more than 20 years of experience in IT consulting, Capino leads his team at Info Alchemy to embrace the “Data as a flywheel of innovation” concept, which was popularized by Amazon Web Services. While data stored on-premises stifles growth and innovation, Capino believes that data must be stored in the cloud so organizations can fully leverage the latest and emerging technologies to enable innovation and accelerate their transformation.
Let face it: To stay relevant in the data era, organizations must keep their data flywheel spinning. In order to tap into the diverse benefits—performance, scalability, reliability, availability, analytic engines, and massive economies of scale—of the cloud, data lakes are an ideal workload to be deployed in the cloud—a compelling alternative to traditional on-premise infrastructure. Evidently, early adopters of big data platforms are now moving their data lakes from on-premises implementations to the cloud. On the other hand, it is challenging for enterprises with on-premises deployments to conform to this trend. This is where Info Alchemy is in a class by itself.
Info Alchemy believes that data, cloud, and AI are key focus areas that organizations must leverage to be able to innovate faster and transform into data-driven companies. In the same vein, the company takes a unique approach to empower its customers with big data and advanced analytics. As an IT consulting and outsourcing company, Info Alchemy embraces customer enablement as its primary mode of engagement through learning seminars, hands-on workshops, customer immersions, technical training, consulting, and advisory services.
As an expert in data warehousing and business intelligence, Info Alchemy specializes in enterprise DW, self-service BI, data quality, master data management, along with big data solutions for data lake, and advanced analytics solutions involving machine learning and R analytics. The company ensures lower total cost of implementation, local resources and support, coupled with consulting, staff augmentation, and managed services. Info Alchemy’s strength has always been its expertise in data engineering, which covers the ingestion, integration, cleansing, matching, golden record management, transformation, and preparation. “Studies show that 70 to 80 percent of the work in any big data project is in data engineering, which is critical to the success of data science and advanced analytics,” says Capino.
The uniqueness of Info Alchemy stems from its rich 18 years of track record in data integration, data warehousing, data quality, and master data management. With data engineering as its core DNA, the company leverages its expertise to deliver successful data analytics projects. This combined with its passion for learning and enablement, empowers its customers with its big data and analytics solutions.
To illustrate the efficiency of Info Alchemy’s services, Capino cites a case study where Info Alchemy helped a global chain of quick-serve restaurants to achieve faster integration and insighting across its hundreds of stores nationwide. With varying latencies, POS data is now captured and stored into a cloud data lake for sales analysis and dashboarding. By implementing a data lake, Info Alchemy was able to quickly pilot and implement AI/ML use cases on demand forecasting, auto-replenishment, cooking recommendation, bill of materials explosion, and warehouse pick-list recommendation.
Success stories, as such, are indicative of Info Alchemy’s commitment to leveraging data to power innovation and transformation. Info Alchemy’s future lies in its managed services offerings for data, cloud, and AI. This offering takes the burden from organizations wanting to establish their own data analytics teams and practices. With its managed services approach, Info Alchemy’s customers can focus on growing the business aided by data analytics.
