LBP, one of the world’s leading sports advisory trading companies, were looking to enhance their real-time analytics capabilities for their rapidly expanding business. As ever more data became available, management wanted to develop sophisticated state-of-the-art, deep-insight, data-driven decision making tools, to inform and enhance trader decisions beyond traditional business intelligence tools.
The challenge was how to manage and effectively utilize their vast amounts of data which had been collected in many years, but not used properly due to lack in data-structure, data-ecosystems and analysing capabilities. LBP wanted to connect billions of data points from myriad data sources to find patterns and achieve deeper insights in their client-advisory team on potential market-development throughout market events.
LBP hired Halfspace to assist the company assess, analyze, prioritize and develop an advanced data ecosystem followed by the process "From data to decision making".
Halfspace has helped LBP in the following areas:
- Identifying how to better use internal and external data to gain new insights to improve performance within the organization.
- Developing an advanced data ecosystem combining more than 100 data sources by extracting, cleaning and standardizing data to one single source of information.

- Creating a scalable, low latency platform infrastructure on Microsoft Azure.
The advanced data-analytics tools developed by Halfspace now support LBP and their stakeholders at all levels - from operational to managerial, helping them delivering the best advices and decisions on behalf of their clients.
