Make Your Data Work for You

For a typical Fortune 1000 company, just a 10% increase in data accessibility will result in more than $65 million additional net income.
Retailers who leverage the full power of big data could increase their operating margins by as much as 60%.
By better integrating big data, healthcare could save an estimated $300 billion a year — that’s equal to reducing costs by $1000 a year for every man, woman, and child.

Problem

Lands’End was trying to find a more effective way to extract actionable insights from terabytes of customer data. Their massive operational database lacked the functionalities required by their marketing team to produce the analytics needed to reach new customer segments.

Response

Sphere built a ETL process to extract data from the Lands’End operational database. A custom built web application was then created to manage all this extracted data for use by the Lands’End marketing team.

Problem

Societe Generale (SG) has nearly 12,000 employees in 37 countries who deliver worldwide expertise in investment banking, global finance, and global markets. SG has a complex distribution system for processing trading instructions. Although these instructions originate from exchanges, they are routed to the appropriate subsystems for further processing. During the routing process, these instructions are enhanced by applying routing and enrichment rules and then translated to different formats. These rules often change due to modifications in financial regulation. Sphere was asked to change the message flow routing which involved the OCC Exchange. The OCC is the registered clearing facility for all U.S. exchange-listed securities options. Sphere was also required to coordinate the message processing in multiple data centers and subsystems in different geographical areas.

Solution

​Sphere addressed these challenges by developing new trading message flows between the required exchanges and financial systems with Scala and Java. The routing rules and adapter pipelines for message enrichment and validation were changed in the existing NVision framework. Sphere formatted and executed the field transformation for messages in NewClear which is a subsystem that reconciled the buying and selling of trading, as well as for GMI and Shadow. Routing rules, enrichment data, and configuration information were obtained via GemFire and Oracle servers. Sphere also developed and implemented a unique message broker substitution workaround for the UAT ( User Acceptance Testing ) environment which simulated various infrastructures for message flows. Lastly, flow visualization in NVision Web Dashboard was also adjusted.
