  • CASE STUDIES

    GLOBAL FASHION SEARCH

    DATA DEMOCRATIZATION

    Employees: 500+

    Industry: Fashion

     

    Case Study: We implemented Looker on top of an Amazon Redshift data warehouse with billions of raw event data rows. This usage data was decorated with hundreds of user and product dimensions to create a rich dataset from which nearly any question could be asked. We also created a user fact table so that an unlimited number of segments / cohorts could be analyzed on the fly, by anyone in the company. Finally, we gave all employees access to the data and trained them on Looker.

     

    Results: Customer retention improved as the product teams discovered actionable insights about where users were getting stuck or lost. Changed company culture to be much more data-driven: Public Relations started publishing weekly stories through self-service discovery of fashion trends by country and region. Marketing optimized campaign performance by reviewing response rates on a daily basis. Plus, the data became much cleaner as all hundreds of data explorers reported issues for the data team to fix.

     

    FORTUNE 1000 SOFTWARE

    DATA CULTURE CHANGE

    Employees: 6K+

    Industry: Architecture & Design

     

    Case Study: After of curating a trusted enterprise data warehouse, executive leadership was ready to fully embrace a data-driven culture. Data Clymer developed journey maps to ensure that end users had extensive support through all channels and became proficient integrating data analysis into their daily routine. We then helped with the enterprise roll-out of Looker, which included solving for some difficult technical hurdles.

     

    Results: All technical challenges were resolved, and various teams migrated from old tools to the new enterprise standard data platform. Employees started relying less on others to pull and analyze the data, and everyone used the data to support business decisions.

    FASHION LOGISTICS

    DATA CULTURE CHANGE

    Employees: 150+

    Industry: Fashion

     

    Case Study: The company was languishing with too many, often nearly duplicate, metrics defined in Looker. Plus, a relatively new data engineering team could not keep up with requests for data aggregations. Data Clymer started over with a new Looker Project, built a clean and streamlined data model, and exposed easy-to-understand datasets to end users. We also trained the entire company on how to use Looker and fully leverage the data.

     

    Results: Over 75% of employees answer their own questions with data every week. Trusted executive dashboards run consistently and help leadership stay on top of their KPIs. The new model worked so well that Data Clymer also helped expose internal data to partners through a portal.

    E-COMMERCE

    DATA DEMOCRATIZATION

    Employees: <100

    Industry: e-Commerce

     

    Case Study: The company had been using RJMetrics for a few years but was starting to feel constrained and frustrated with the flexibility of the tool. We implemented a full data stack with a Panoply data warehouse and Looker as their new business intelligence tool. We were able to incorporate all their existing data sources along with new data sources they were unable to use previously in RJMetrics. After integrating all their data sources we built out their Looker data model.

     

    Results: With the Looker data model in place we were able to create new analytics reports such as user facts data which enabled advanced cohort reporting. They were also able to use some of the more robust features of Looker such as persistent derived tables, scheduled reports/dashboards, and merged results. All of these features have saved their team hundreds of hours of manual work for more concise and clear analytics. Each team is now able to pull and analyze their own data
