Data Enrichment

A state government office uses our Artificial Intelligence solution to implement a data enrichment tool, enabling more accurate and timely data-driven decisions.  

SITUATION  

Our client, a state government office focused on data and analytics associated with economic opportunity, collects data from various state organizations. The data set has many quality issues and lacks standardization and consistency. The client partnered with us to create a solution that would cleanse this data on an ongoing basis, allowing them to make better data-driven decisions regarding state programs and regulations.  

SOLUTION  

Our four-person engineering team designed a solution on AWS using Fuzzy Logic and Text Mining. We were able to implement a Python-based natural language processing algorithm, which was necessary to provide the appropriate data enrichment. Additionally, the team developed an AWS automation capability with Terraform so that environments could be easily created, updated and versioned.

RESULT 

Our solution allows our client to match wage and benefits data with other data sources that will influence programs and policy making. The process is reusable, so it can be run as often as necessary to create value from new and changed data sets as they flow into the organization. In addition to resolving our client’s data matching problem, our solution will also service as a technology foundation for similar big data and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads.
