Automatization opens business opportunities and other advantages to Banco Votorantim
The Bank used spreadsheets and systems for data extraction and collection, which was no longer viable given the volume of information. With automation, they were able to deliver analytical and business-driven results.
Automation of repetitive manual tasks
In 2017, there was a complex scenario in which the bank used various spreadsheets and systems for data extraction and collection. This scenario required a great deal of manual effort and a lot of time.
The need to keep up with new technologies, connecting to more data sources, through product logs and databases, to expand the scope and performance of the area, demanded more from the team. With the increasing volume of information, it was no longer possible to support this data in spreadsheets, until then used to consolidate, make adjustments and projections.
Automated collecting, instrumented load testing robots and data cleaning
Predictor was implemented. With it, it was possible to automate the gathering of data, load testing and data cleaning. The tool made it easy to centralize information, increasing the scope of the technologies and components monitored, as well as reducing operational effort, directing the team's performance towards increasingly analytical and business-focused deliveries.
To complete the implementation, which lasted about 03 months, it was required six employees: three operations, one project, one database and one manager. The bank's investment generated around R$ 450 thousand.
