Altis Consulting streamlines Sigma Healthcare’s legacy data storage

We were recently mentioned on the ARN website for our work with Sigma Healthcare in streamlining their data storage.

Sigma needed a trusted implementation partner to design and implement this new data & analytics solution.

Altis was engaged to establish the data & analytics cloud platform foundations and deliver business-critical reporting and compliance requirements on the platform within an aggressive timeline of less than 12 months. This was made possible thanks to the technical accelerators that Altis brought such as their Snowflake Data Load Accelerator.

“Altis Consulting has taken pharmaceutical wholesaler and distributor Sigma Healthcare’s ageing data infrastructure and replaced it with streamlined data storage consolidation and access, as well as internal data sharing practices.

Working with Snowflake, the two companies were brought in to provide an alternative to Sigma’s legacy, on-premise infrastructure that was no longer meeting its needs, according to Dean Reynolds, the wholesaler and distributor’s head of data and analytics.

As a result of the implementation, ongoing support costs have dropped by over 30 per cent and the time taken for batch processing jobs has fallen from eight to 10 hours to under three.”

Altis designed the Snowflake and Microsoft Azure Cloud Architecture for Sigma and provided solution architecture, data modelling, data engineering, data visualisation and devops services to Sigma as part of the solution delivery. Post implementation, Altis also took on the day-to-day support of the solution via their Managed Services team operating out of New Zealand.
