Architecture Planning & Design
Lunexa will help create a data architecture that will scale and support your organization's information demands, today and into the future. Our experienced data architects will help you define requirements and develop data models and schema. We will assess both the functional and technical requirements that are critical to your success and come up with an approach that is entirely client-centered and custom - meaning we'll listen to you first, then tailor a strategy to meet your needs.
Lunexa's benchmarking analysis can help you weigh the pros and cons of implementing new technology within your organization. Our team can create a model to help you determine whether a technology will scale and perform effectively in your environment. We'll evaluate different software and hardware components by performing stress tests that rely on real-world usage scenarios and loads. The results will give you the tools you need for more precise and accurate capacity and infrastructure planning. Lunexa's experienced consultants can:
- Define the goals and scope of the benchmark
- Define the usage profile and scenarios for the benchmark
- Specify the baseline infrastructure and testing environment for the benchmark, including testing and measurement tools
- Develop the test scripts
- Execute the test
- Capture and analyze the test results
- Make capacity planning recommendations based on the results of the benchmark
Best Practices Methodology
Data application development can be iterative and error-prone, to put it mildly. Lunexa can help you breeze through the trouble areas. We offer comprehensive best-practice guidance, experience and methodology, drawn from our work with the very best companies in the world.
We can help you mitigate risks at each stage of the project lifecycle, including:
- Acceptance testing
- Change management
- Environment strategy and deployment methodology
- Integrated requirements gathering
- Release management
- Tuning and optimization
- User adoption consulting
Lunexa provides clients with executive-thought leadership in the area of Big Data. Our team can help you evaluate a Big Data architecture within your enterprise by identifying environments where Hadoop makes sense from a data perspective. We can help you understand the specific advantages of creating a big data architecture, including success factors for Hadoop integration and can help you design a deployment drawn from our past successful deployments.
Business Process Analysis
Sometimes your business systems and the processes they support all need a health check. Lunexa can help you streamline your business processes and workflows. We can also help you improve your software development approach. We will learn about your business and understand your existing processes in order to provide concrete recommendations based on our prior experience working with other clients with similar needs. Services include business process evaluations, models, and re-designs.
Development & Deployment Strategy
Our database engineers can work with your team to analyze your business requirements and help you design a database solution to meet your needs. Lunexa offers database development services for a wide array of database platforms. We use the latest development technologies including C#, ASP.NET, and VB.NET. Lunexa consultants have in-depth experience with different relational database technologies including IBM DB2 UDB, Netezza, Aster Data, Oracle, Teradata, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MySQL.
End-to-End Impact Analysis
When it comes to database programming, a tiny change to the source database can have a "ripple effect" on a very wide scale. Lunexa will help you understand the potential ripple effects of changes to your systems. We will make sure every solution option is explored and fully tested before a database solution is implemented.
Lunexa can help make sure your data warehouse or business intelligence project delivers the results you're counting on. Our experienced team will evaluate your business case and technical approach (architecture and process) to determine whether your plan will achieve your goals and protect you against future risks.
Tuning & Optimization
Lunexa can help you optimize database applications so they run faster and more reliably. If you run into significant problems, we can help you discover the underlying causes, and can provide fixes and optimization techniques which can help speed up database performance and improve data integrity.
Companies sometimes invest a lot of time and effort up front into negotiating contracts with their technology vendors, only to leave it to chance that an effective partnership will simply fall into place afterwards. True partnerships seldom fall into place on their own, and the teams who use the technology can end up working in a vaccuum, without a clear plan to achieve ROI.
Lunexa helps our clients create successful, sustainable partnerships with technology vendors. At Lunexa, we come from a technology industry background and many have worked for technology vendors. We have an intricate understanding of technology organizations from top to bottom, and how every part of a technology organization can provide value to our client, and vice versa. We help our clients engage more productively with the following departments within a technology organization:
- Alliances team
- Education department
- Engineers and technology managers
- Other vendor customers
- Product managers
- Technical support team

Enterprise Data Integration
The quantity of data is exploding throughout the enterprise - and so is the number of data integration projects. Data integration is playing a bigger and more vital role than ever, requiring people with skills beyond the basics of operating ETL tools. Lunexa can perform ETL and a great deal more:
- Full design documentation - Communication skills are the calling card of Lunexa consultants. We create documentation with great care that includes comprehensive details about the process and logic present in the systems we develop
- Metadata integration – We combine software and business metadata to give developers and business users a common language for interpreting data elements
- Federation – We create a federated approach to a data warehouse using database gateways as an alternative to loading data into a single data warehouse or datamart
- Data Profiling/Data Cleansing - Lunexa can ensure that all data, including customer information and other "free form" data, are complete, accurate and properly labeled for use in database applications
