How we provide system integration solutions

Consultation icon

Analysis icon

Step 2 of 5

Discovering and feasibility analysis

One of our core values is flexibility, hence we work with either one page high level requirements or with a full pack of tech docs.  

At this stage, we need to ensure that we understand the full scope of the project. We receive from you or perform a set of interviews and prepare the following documents: integration pipeline (which data we should get and where to upload), process logic (how system should work); use cases and acceptance criteria; solution architecture. Ultimately we make a project plan which we strictly follow.

Step 3 of 5

Solution development

At this stage, we build ETL pipelines and necessary APIs to automate the process. We attract our DevOps team to build the most efficient and scalable solution. Ending up with unit tests and quality assurance tests to ensure that the solution is working properly. Focus on Results is one of our core values as well.

Step 4 of 5

Solution delivery

After quality assurance tests are completed, we deliver solutions to the client. Though we have over 15 years of expertise in data engineering, we are expecting client’s participation in the project. While developing the integration system, we provide midterm results so you can always see where we are and provide us with feedback. By the way, a high-level of communication is also our core value.

Success stories

Check out a few case studies that show why DATAFOREST will meet your business needs.

Ecommerce scraping

The dropshipping company needed a way to automatically monitor prices and stock availability for over 100,000 products from over 1,500 stores. We created a system using custom scripts and a web interface that could check 60 million pages daily. This led to a reduction in manual work and errors, and improvements in customer experience and a $50-70k increase in monthly profits.

Demand forecasting

We built a sales forecasting system and optimized the volume of goods in the warehouse and the range of goods in different locations, considering each outlet's specifics. We set up a system that has processed more than 8 TB of sales data. These have helped the retail business increase revenue, improve logistics planning, and achieve other business goals.
