Time to Leverage Data

Insify is an insurance company that offers digital insurance solutions to freelancers and small businesses. Its proprietary and tailored insurance products span business liability and professional indemnity to occupational disability coverage for entrepreneurs and small businesses. As a rapidly growing company, Insify recognized the need to harness the power of its data resources more effectively. 

An End-to-End, Self-Service Data Platform on AWS

Based on its requirements, Xebia advised to Insify asked Xebia Base to build a cloud data platform and deliver a data and analytics platform (from ingestion to live dashboards) on two specific use cases. Xebia collaborated closely with Insify’s tech team and CTO Martijn Rutten to develop and implement the core components of a modern data platform tailored to the company's unique needs. 

The solution consisted of the following components:
  • Building necessary cloud infrastructure as code using Terraform.
  • Spinning up Databricks as the core of the data platform.
  • Implementing Fivetran for seamless data ingestion from various sources, such as Zendesk for CRM data.
  • Implementing Databricks Delta Live Tables for near-real-time ingestion of operational data stored in AWS S3.
  • Transforming the ingested data using dbt to ensure consistency, accuracy, and relevancy.
  • Building a scalable and performant Databricks Delta Lake on the AWS platform.
  • Designing and deploying interactive and insightful dashboards using AWS Quicksight for near-real-time business intelligence.

Following completion and delivery, Xebia provided materials, documentation, and training on the platform's operation so that Insify could independently use and build on the delivered data platform.
