Examining Cloud Technologies

RedPixie were sponsored by Telereal Trillium, a Large Commercial Real Estate, to re-develop part of their forecasting system so that it could leverage modern cloud-based technologies.

The Challenge

RedPixie recently completed a technically complex and exciting engagement for Telereal Trillium centred on making improvements to key components of the firms forecasting engine.

The forecasting engine is used to forecast multi-year budgets based on numerous complex business scenarios. The forecasting models were built on legacy technologies and, as a result, the business process had become inefficient at executing long-term forecasts.


RedPixie demonstrated to us the immense power of re-platforming a line of business application into Azure rather than just moving the application.

The Solution

We worked with the Telereal Trillium to build an alternate solution using Microsoft Azure and modern statistical computing languages.

The cloud solution allowed them to consume more cloud computing power “on demand” and accelerate the budget modelling process.

Our Method

Our data & analytics team worked closely with the Telereal Trillium’s modelling team to understand their forecasting and budget process intimately. It was clear that the process needed to be executed quickly to streamline the budget process.

It was also evident that the process would benefit from the execution of modern technologies that were not hampered by legacy technology platforms.

The Experience

We are now working with Telereal Trillium to migrate the entire forecasting engine platform to Microsoft Azure so that it can leverage more capability and improvements across the entire data warehouse.

Telereal Trillium is particularly interested in machine learning and identifying how this and the Internet of Things might change their business operating model from unplanned maintenance to planned. We will be undertaking a POC with them in this space.
