A strategic data assessment provides insight
To help the Rangers develop a plan to scale and implement a data and analytics solution, Resultant first performed a strategic data assessment (SDA). An SDA helps us systematically and thoroughly evaluate data challenges and areas of the organization to make a more impactful transformation, including:
- People and processes
- Data models and structures
- Data architecture and platforms
- Visual analytics and reporting
- Advanced analytics
Upon completion of the assessment, Resultant presented a detailed report to the business operations team with the following recommendations:
A cloud migration didn’t make sense when the new stadium had a brand-new, state-of-the-art, on-prem infrastructure that would handle the Rangers’ needs beautifully when everything connected to it was optimized. Resultant helped the Texas Rangers implement Alteryx Designer and Alteryx Server to extract data from their various cloud applications via APIs to load the data into their on-prem infrastructure.
Modern data architecture and structure
New, modern data architecture and structure would meet major increases in volume and types of data to capture, process, and store data in an efficient, effective manner, ensuring scalability for future growth—a priority Resultant has for all their clients.
Resultant implemented Alteryx Designer and Alteryx Server so the team now has a data lake to provide stakeholders a better way to manage data reliability, accuracy, and timeliness while ensuring streamlined access.
Manual process automation
Streamlining and automating the majority of the Rangers game day operations processes with Alteryx has facilitated faster data analysis and allows for near real-time reporting on parking, ticket scans, concession sales, and retail volume—and opens up scaling capabilities for the future.
A comprehensive roadmap, project plan, and budget co-developed between Resultant and the business operations team with in-depth knowledge of their objectives and constraints enabled them to articulate success criteria, outline a feasible multi-year investment schedule, and get executive buy-in for the initiative.
