There are a number of scenarios that bring up Cost and Operational Efficiency issues at firms. Here are a few of the scenarios that Orion has come across and resolved for our customers over the years:

  • How do I mitigate paying hefty fines from this audit?
  • How to lower my Total Cost Of Ownership?
  • How Many Duplicate Reports do I have?
  • In near real-time, how may one change impact my financial reporting?
  • Which critical business process uses this type of information?
  • How do I reduce my IT Spend?
  • How do I trace my information across all my IT landscape?
  • How do I create data literacy among all my employees?
  • Where are all the personal identifiable (PII) about our customers

Use Case: Reducing Total Cost of Ownership


An application modernization effort that involved rewriting all the business processes in Java,  using a consultancy to build the solution.

Business Problem

Re-platforming of an existing solution in Java has resulted in code bloat,  delays and the business getting increasingly worried about the outcomes after having spent years and millions of dollars.

The Solution

  • Visibility into the quality of code delivered by vendors
  • Detect bad coding practices
  • Reduce maintenance caused by unnecessary code duplication
  • Reduce operational risk by detecting bad coding practices

Business Benefits

By exposing bad practices, the business was able to pre-empt a maintenance nightmare post acceptance of the product. The outsourcing vendor was asked to remediate their code after having only spent a few hours in the harvester to find the anomalies. The said case involved more than 2 million lines of Java code.

Cost Savings

The ability to generate near real-time traceability saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in resource costs and offset penalties that would have arisen from non-compliance.

Use Case: Business Term Mapper
