Customer Profile

Industrial

The customer had a goal to create a stable enterprise-class platform on which they could gain data insights needed to offer new solutions to their operating companies and establish themselves as an industry thought leader. Having significant experience across multiple cloud platforms, the customer chose Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and sought guidance on how to focus their data in the most effective and streamlined manner possible. Taos worked alongside the customer’s team to help consolidate their data into a new GCP-based data lake infrastructure and deployed new workflow pipelines architected and built with a focus on data security. 

 

The team recognized that data acts as the currency of the future and has invested heavily in an infrastructure that supports growth in this area. Taos brought a level of transparent leadership and “tough love” that gave the customer absolute confidence in our design and implementation process and the resulting GCP-based data lake. Thanks to our training, their IT team understands exactly how to get the most out of the new infrastructure and keep it running flawlessly. And if there is ever any issue or question that arises, we continue to provide ongoing support and troubleshooting.

Data will drive the world. Analytics will drive what our future looks like and you need data to do that.” “[Taos] gave us the tough love when we needed it. When we were going the wrong way, [Taos] guided us back to what was right.”
