Flatworld Provided Data Abstraction Services for a Top Researcher

Case Study on Data Abstraction for a Top Researcher

The Client

The client is located in Sweden and has a graduate degree in molecular biology. His published work focuses on physical training and exercise. He serves as an orienteer and motivator for several sports academies. His research involves the impact of exercise on health and how certain drugs affect muscle development on a long-term basis.

Challenges Faced by the Client

The client needed help abstracting data from a raw format (.txt) file with machine-recorded data and then converting data into Excel files that would be conducive to his research activities. He was also looking for data analysis services that would aid in clarifying and interpreting the data.

The main project challenges were as follows -

  • Accurate data abstraction involved complex formulas in order to retrieve the data in a readable format
  • The original data proved to be irregular and there was a mismatch in client-provided data

FWS' Solution

The Flatworld Solutions team provided the following solution -

  • The team included one data analyst and one account manager
  • Data mismatches were discovered during the preliminary analysis phase
  • The team developed improved formulas to churn the data for more accurate results
  • Final deliverables included data analysis discussion and summaries and an Excel sheet that was developed to record abstracted data
