Unlocking data-driven opportunities faster and cost-efficiently
Today, ABN AMRO has flipped their data strategy on its head. Rather than technology being the problem, now it’s an enabler. Because of this paradigm shift, the data teams at ABN AMRO have been able to deliver nearly dozens of use cases across the business at lightning speeds — 10x faster than with their existing infrastructure. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Groot estimates that they’ve only delivered 5% of the total use cases they have on their road map, with over 100 additional use cases, and even more machine learning models, planned over the coming months.
Most importantly, as the company grows so does the data team’s ability to grow and support the business. “We are a truly agile organization now,” expressed Stefan Boom, Solutions Architect at ABN AMRO. “There were things that weren’t even possible before. Now we have the flexibility and capability to do anything.”
With Databricks playing a pivotal role in their data-driven decision-making, ABN AMRO has opened the floodgates to empower over 500 team members across data engineering, analytics, data science and the business to leverage data to experiment and build solutions that deliver on use cases across the organization.
Looking ahead, Groot feels that in the coming year they will see exponential growth in models with 100+ additional use cases on the road map. Now that they have the technology stack, organizational structure and processes, and collaborative culture in place, they will be able to shift their focus and accelerate value creation across the enterprise.
