Tools & Technologies
- Eliminated a 3rd party tool which charged ~$100 – $1000/month per customer based on the data pulled (5–250 million rows/month).
- Eliminated two other 3rd party tools which resulted in huge cost savings.
- Significant reduction in operational cost due to custom-built scalable connectors and APIs.
- Minimal maintenance cost despite frequent changes in source systems, due to the robustness of the code.
