Modernize legacy reporting on cloud with Looker
Bitwise and Looker helped a U.S. based global financial services company to drive reporting and visualization adoption across an extensive user base by providing a better user experience of its Business Intelligence application, resulting in increased global revenue and reduced costs as part of its enterprise cloud strategy.

Client Challenges and Requirements

  • Client reconciles large volumes of payment data for merchants spread across the globe.
  • WebFocus based legacy application carried major overhead resulting in higher costs, performance issues and limited UI/UX features that hindered the user experience.
  • Client required a reporting and visualization tool that fit within its GCP cloud strategy, met stringent business timelines for migration and facilitated cultural change among end users adapting to the new cloud-based application.

Bitwise Solution

Bitwise and Looker created an implementation plan using Agile methodology where the key business priorities were identified with the product owner and executed in defined sprint iterations. Bitwise developed Looker code components and interactive visualizations along with existing tabular reports from the legacy application to share summarized/detailed statistics in a single view, which was a key priority.
