Provision of Analytics Platform to support Tesco Bank becoming a more ‘Cognitive Business’

Challenge

Tesco Bank required a self-service data platform to develop and present trends dashboards and models for business use. They needed the ability to access and securely upload finance data which is hosted on-premises to the cloud. The data platform had to be a managed, maintained and supported environment to allow business users to view customer and financial services usage trends.

Approach

We built a self-service 'Discovery' web platform on and utilising AWS. Providing both an analytical development environment in R Studio and a dashboarding presentation tool in an application store using R Shiny for end business users. Tesco Bank could: import their own data using SFTP or the Web UI upload service, create their own interactive R Studio clusters using the purpose built web UI, and had full flexible control over the size of their analytics clusters to meet the demand of growing data sets.

Results

This self-service platform provided an interface for both developers and business users to a single central self-hosted platform. The platform allowed Tesco Bank to transition to open-source technologies and harness the benefits of cloud computation.

"The Discovery platform allowed us to centralise decision making calculations in one space; as well as increase connectivity, scalability, re-usability and control. All making us a more cognitive business." - Tesco Bank
