beIN was exploring ways to unite and reconcile the significant amount of data they collect from payment gateways, analytics, and CRM tools.

Some of the areas that beIN was exploring ways to unearth included;
  • Viewership profiling through a variety of dimensions such as subscription status, favorite content, and recent content views,
  • Subscription journey mapping through understanding the behavior of recently signed up users, acquisition channel, and campaign,
  • Deep-dive cohort and churn analysis to optimize marketing efforts and effectively better manage operating costs.

  • Also, the data input that beIN collects was in a non-standard format and challenging to transform into meaningful insights.

    beIN needed to move away from basic reporting to actionable data and more comprehensive BI through which they can effectively interpret and visualize terabytes of data and make it accessible to all relevant parties in the company, allowing for data-informed decision making.


    We developed a technology stack neutral Customer Data Platform (CDP) that is highly cost-effective, flexible, and can be queried by non-technical staff.
    • A reliable data warehouse that aggregates inputs from various sources (i.e., web data, transactional data, external data, app data, APIs, FTP, etc.)
    • A solid framework that makes it possible to convert raw data to a standardized format and automate a large number of processes into batches and scheduled queries instead of processing all required and non-required information in real-time
    • A data pipeline that seamlessly integrates into 3rd party analytics, tracking, monitoring, and CRM tools

    We built a highly scalable and cost-efficient business intelligence and data insights platform that allows for data-informed decision making.
    • Modern infrastructure built with tools such as Apache Airflow, Apache Superset, BigQuery
    • A cutting-edge, easy-to-use visualization tool to identify trends, patterns, and outliers within large data sets from the data platform
    • Fully-customizable dashboards to allow for data-informed decision making
      • Churn analysis
      • Cohort analysis
      • User behavior analysis
      • Predictive modeling

    We created automated auditing and reconciliation processes supported by triggers and alerts.
  • Automated reconciliation across payment gateways and alert relevant staff
  • Automated, flawless ROI analysis through integrated subscription management and client tracking data
  • Automated triggers to identify anomalies, such as issues in streaming and reporting, and alert the system and relevant staff

  • Up to 90% reduction in the number of data points delivered to the marketing automation platforms, significant cost savings in marketing operations, and a decrease in management’s time and effort on reporting
  • Data-informed decision making through dashboards, democratization of data, and automated reporting through the smart pipeline configuration from S3 to BigQuery, which previously used to take 1-2 days to prepare/build
  • Customer experience improvement through increased quality and efficiency of data management and analytics
  • Advanced fraud detection through analysis of aggregated inputs, helping tackle the growing threat from illegal streaming and effectively reducing costs
