Each client project presents multiple challenges for IT consulting firms. The biggest challenge? Handling and organizing your client's data 🤯. Thankfully, advancements in AI now enable a more streamlined and automated approach, which can condense weeks of work into just a few days. This is where Lume steps in.

The Challenge: Data Integration

Each client engagement for IT consulting firms unravels a unique set of data and system intricacies. Often, clients have messy and outdated data models, rely on legacy systems, or neglect their data architecture. Such challenges compound when tasked with revamping their systems, molding client data for analytics, or cleaning their data to meet deliverables.

We’ve learned that your current processes are extremely manual - sitting down for weeks or months with your clients, whiteboarding ideas for new data models, and iterating with an engineering and business team to create the necessary mappings to clean or wrangle the data. Not only that, the firms have to invest the necessary engineering resources to create the data-wrangling pipelines. With Lume, we hope to reduce the cost, and time, needed to achieve this from weeks to simply a few days. 

Here's a quote from my conversation with the CEO of a IT Consulting firm: "This process of iterating and wrangling data models with our clients can take between 30 to 100 days". 😵
