Data infrastructure modernization optimizes cloud costs by 50%

Data infrastructure modernization on AWS delivers timely and accurate credit scores for a leading Fintech company

Business Challenge

The customer is a global provider of commercial data, analytics, and insights on businesses. They offer services such as business credit scores and ratings to assess a company's creditworthiness and financial stability based on payment history, financial statements, and industry risk. They processed global trade data for 15 million customers from 800 different sources to calculate these credit scores. However, due to the legacy on-premise systems running on mainframe and Cloudera, data processing was slow and inefficient, ultimately hampering their ability to provide timely and accurate credit scores.
