Case Study: How Spenmo Supports 200+ Users With an 08-Person Data Team

Designing your organization to be data-driven is hard, mostly because the “people, process, then tools” criterion is good and true, and universally applicable. You need to have the right people and process in place, with the right tool, in this exact order.

It’s hard. But some managed to pull it off, like one of our customers - Spenmo, a Singapore-based fintech company that has recently secured $121.4 million in funding.

By honing in on People, Process, and Tools, the 8-person data team at Spenmo was able to build a thriving self-service culture - which effectively supports the exponential volume of internal data requests that come with its rapid business growth - with some amazing results.

Here’s exactly how they did it

How Would An Ideal Semantic Layer Look Like?

In this talk, we delved into

  • The concept of a semantic layer.
  • Why the semantic layer becomes essential in today’s analytics landscape.
  • How it can improve efficiency and user experience.

We also discussed the essential features that an ideal semantic layer should have and how they can help you achieve your data analysis goals. Take a look!
