Data Extraction, Scrubbing and Enrichment

With new protocols of communication coming up every day, it is quite expected that different clients and vendors provide information in different formats – Plain text, CSV, PDF, Excel, Word, Html, Xml, FIX, SWIFT, ANSI35 and many more. Even internal applications developed over time are written in different technologies and often communicate in languages they don’t fully understand. In such situations, assimilating the information from these heterogenous sources and putting it to a higher level use (e.g. Decision support system, MIS, Machine Learning) is a major challenge. A lot of money, operational energy and system resources are spent in bringing consistency to this data in an ad-hoc manner.

Akribia can help you overcome this challenge by providing high quality data extraction and enrichment services in an effective and efficient manner. With our expertise, experience and some very powerful internal applications, we can help you discipline your data so that you can remain focused on your business.

We have built multiple proprietary software to be able to provide you these services. One of many such applications is IntelliGet which is used by hundreds of businesses across the world to extract data from various kinds of PDF files and text files

Enterprise Data Integration

Integrating enterprise data has been one of the biggest IT challenges of a large number of firms. With different lines of businesses managing their own systems, there is always going to be some data redundancy, some data inconsistency, some process duplication and a huge need to combine information across them.

Data integration is a necessary evil which needs to be dealt with with utmost care and diligence. Arriving at an optimal solution is a very complex process depending on a variety of factors including the disparity in data, the volume of data, the underlying systems, the acceptable time delay for updates, the resources available and the budget constraints.

Akribia brings a wealth of experience in data integration along with domain knowledge of a lot of businesses. We specialize in various replication models, ETL methodologies, data warehousing and virtualization to help you with a solution and fits your needs perfectly

Performance Tuning

A large number of enterprise and web applications often fail the production demands despite having a very good application design, user interface and business logic. The leading cause of this phenomenon is – inadequate database performance. As the database (standalone or farm) grows, so does the slowness of the system.

With the ownership of the hardware and the db-server configurations being with the DBAs and the code ownership being with the developers, finding the root cause of slowness is extremely challenging. The complex interplay of queries, optimizer, cpu, memory, locks, log files, disk speeds needs to be studied in detail to be able to figure out what is going wrong. In the absence of such deep analysis, usually the blame is put on either “too much data” or “lack of hardware capacity”. This is often followed by unnecessary expenditure on either rewriting the system or purchasing new hardware or both.

This, in most cases, is completely avoidable. Akribia has extensive experience in rejuvenating databases and applications that had almost come to a halt and had been completely written off. We have deep expertise in Sybase, Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL and MySQL and a keen sense of identifying the primary bottlenecks of a system. If you too have been advised by your team to throw off your existing database, it is time to think once again.

Analytics

Gain useful insights about your business with our proprietary data analytics tools which are extraordinarily fast, flexible and powerful. With minimal configurations and in just a few run cycles, you can get all the important parameters and how they affect your business

The usual machine learning exercise is a very cumbersome and tiring process. From variable discovery to weight adjustments to cross validation, everything requires a lot of hit and trial and fine tuning running into days and months. Even if you start getting good results, the physical significance of the model is too hazy.

Akribia has a very different approach to this. We have a fully automated and integrated process right from variable discovery to prediction. You can not only predict output with high accuracy and great ease but also clearly understand the relevance of the model to help you tune the business parameters.

Web and Mobile application development

In addition to our strong data management experience, we now have full stack web, mobile and desktop application development expertise. We love to design, develop and deploy complex applications in a short duration. We have a team of highly experienced engineers with skills in mobile, web and desktop software development. High performance modern elegant and responsive user interfaces for iOS, android and desktop; secure multi-threaded infinitely scalable application layer on the cloud or on-premise servers; and blazing fast dynamic configurable distributed databases – we are experts in these and many more technologies that are required to either give shape to your startup idea or to fully revamp your legacy applications. Finance, Retail, Analytics, Healthcare, Education, Marketplaces – we understand all these domains to a good extent and will be able to provide our inputs to fine tune your business process as well.
