The Challenge

Corndel was seeking a flexible, switch on/switch off SQL & Data consultancy from a software and data partner. Introduced to Objective by their infrastructure support company, Corndel has been working with us since summer 2022.

The Solution

To begin, a scope meeting including Corndel’s Director of Transformation and Change and Head of Data & Reporting was held to understand their full requirements.

The main consultancy and support focus was needed on Microsoft Azure Data Factory, a fully managed serverless data integration service, streamlining processes and improving SQL queries.

The work covered modifying the data integration pipeline, speed improvements and database administration reports, as well as health checks to provide recommendations for future developments to keep data secure and robust.

The Results & Benefits

  • A trusted rapport has developed, providing a technical sounding board.
  • Corndel’s Head of Data confidently calls upon Objective’s data scientists to investigate queries and provide prompt solutions.
  • On-going support services.
