Challenge

A fashion company relies on the open source language R for data analysis. In order to achieve high performance and reliability, the company has instructed an external service provider to set up a suitable analytics infrastructure. After the implementation was completed, it became apparent that the new infrastructure did not meet the requirements of the productive operation of the analysis.

Aim

The aim of the responsible persons was to identify the existing deficits and to eliminate them in a way that the IT infrastructure enables productive operation of the R analysis.

Solution

For the analysis and optimization of the existing infrastructure, the fashion company decided on eoda’s data science specialists. The experienced solution architects from eoda have created an exact image of the IT environment on site at the customer’s premises. Based on these findings, eoda developed an action plan for the customer to improve the analysis environment and subsequently implemented the roadmap outlined in it.

eoda supported the customer with the following measures:

  • Connection of an RStudio server with SAP HANA
  • Setup of a SAP HANA R integration
  • Implementation of active directory identification

For the reliable operation of the IT environment, eoda is available as a support partner for any questions or problems that may arise. In agreement with the responsible parties on the customer side, eoda also develops a plan for the further expansion of the infrastructure. In the future, the implementation of a local CRAN repository and the installation of a continuous integration system are planned.

Result

The fashion company has recognized the potential of data-supported processes and evidence-based decisions for itself. Data science is the key to extrapolate this potential. To achieve this, the company needs an IT infrastructure that meets the highest demands in terms of performance and security. eoda’s experts have helped to identify existing deficits and build a data science architecture that enables the seamless implementation of analytics into business processes.
