After years of research and development, brother inventors Michael and Ben Dumbowsky of Nexii Building Solutions realized a proprietary invention that would change the future of construction. Nexiite is a high-performance building material that enables Nexii Panels to be strong, lightweight, low-carbon, and fire and water resistant. It has an ultra-efficient manufacturing process, rapid on-site assembly, and a zero-waste mandate.
Nexii has a rapid growth strategy and recently achieved ‘unicorn status’. When we began work, the company had just acquired a competitor, which led to the need to combine the two companies’ data into a comprehensive data platform. Nexii didn’t have the in-house expertise to support the implementation of Microsoft D365 and needed a quick-to-market solution to meet their aggressive timelines.
We started with a whiteboarding session to identify the business’s immediate and future-state requirements
Next, we collaborated with the client to design a forward-thinking solution that fit their need to synthesize data rapidly
We made recommendations on technologies to the senior leadership at Nexii and educated them on what was driving our choices
We delivered quickly by using Azure DevOps to support an agile approach and Microsoft best practices to support the solution design, from business lineage to technical lineage
Technologies used included: Azure DevOps, Azure Data Lake, Azure Databricks, Key Vault, Power BI
By collaborating with the client, we were able to link key business requirements to all aspects of the final solution
Our work increased client productivity by automating deployment into multiple environments
The solution supports sustainable building and future growth, with valuable improvements in time-to-market performance
