When CDOs and CIOs decide on their data architecture strategy, they have to be mindful of the trade-offs and have a deep understanding of what functionality they need to optimize.

Acuity's Data Story
Transforming Petabytes of Data into Mission-Focused Analytics
For this federal enterprise, Acuity performs ETL processing for nearly 5 petabytes of data in the first Big Data Analytics Platform enabling high speed analytics processing, unstructured text analytics and predictive modeling and visualization. From this data, Acuity employs AI/ML tools to build and sustain agile, innovative analytic modules across platforms and uses this data to develop automated algorithms and applications. These tools better enable the Agency to predict risk, prioritize investigations and make better decisions that protect the public/investor community from obtaining fraudulent information that could impact financial security.
Streamlining Data to Accelerate Mission Decisions
For this Federal component, Acuity modernized a legacy enterprise data warehouse that ingests complex data sets and models to provide Federal leadership with advanced statistical capabilities. As part of our efforts, Acuity streamlined the ETL and reporting process from 24 hours down to 3.5 hours, increased the frequency of reporting from monthly to daily providing near real-time data, and expanded user access and self-service reporting capabilities. Today, we continue to modernize the component’s data capabilities with the introduction of Databricks to further reduce run-time, provide advanced business intelligence, exploratory and operational analytics, and optimized data engineering capabilities.
On the Forefront - Migrating FISMA Moderate-Level Data to the Cloud
Acuity designed and migrated an on-prem data center to a secure microservices architecture in a new cloud-based platform. This system is used by thousands of internal and external users and contains millions of records. In just 18 months, Acuity successfully automated the system and the data extraction process. The new system uses a FedRAMP-certified cloud platform, making this organization among the first federal entities to successfully migrate FISMA moderate-level data to the cloud. Acuity points to two critical success factors for this effort – robust data governance and the advanced data analytics capability, enabling users to predictively identify security anomalies and patterns and make informed decisions in a secure environment.
