Award recognizes the critical role of trusted data in driving successful business outcomes across both organizations

Press releases

Precisely, the global leader in data integrity, today announced that Comcast has been honored in the prestigious Drexel LeBow Analytics 50 list. The multinational telecommunications and media company was celebrated for its innovative use of data analytics to drive large-scale digital transformation and accelerate business insights across its organization – with Precisely data integrity solutions playing an essential role in its success.

As part of its “Digital Changemakers” initiative, Comcast harnessed its high-potential, digitally focused employees across the business to help accelerate automation efforts and drastically reduce the time spent on manual tasks. The company leveraged Data360 Analyze from Precisely, alongside other third-party products, to streamline processes and empower users to quickly share insights with self-service data preparation and analytics.

“By building over 150 automated processes, we have realized a significant savings in work hours as well as a reduction in business costs,” said Ernie Pighini, EVP Finance at Comcast. “Data360 Analyze provided a level of standardization, predictability, and analysis that has freed us up to deliver a better experience for both our internal and external customers.”

Precisely was also recognized in the Drexel LeBow Analytics 50 list for the innovative use of its own portfolio of data integrity solutions. The project team, spearheaded by Precisely CDIO, Amy O’Connor, successfully integrated newly acquired businesses into the organization which involved migrating 228 datasets across eight lines of business in just nine months.

“At Precisely, we support thousands of organizations around the world each day on their journey to data integrity and we are also customers of our own solutions,” said Amy O’Connor, Chief Data and Information Officer at Precisely. “Our IT and business teams leveraged our deep domain expertise around data integration, quality, and governance to bring new organizations into the fold at Precisely as quickly and seamlessly as possible and maintain the velocity of business. We are proud to be recognized by Drexel LeBow for this work.”

Precisely and Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business are committed to providing education and real-world expertise to data professionals across the industry. The two organizations jointly published the 2023 Data Integrity Trends report earlier this year – which surveyed hundreds of data leaders across the globe to reveal fascinating insights on the current state of data and analytics.

“Our on-going collaboration with Precisely not only allows us to better support today’s data leaders in making more confident decisions for their business, but it also helps to create important new opportunities for the data leaders of tomorrow,” said Diana Jones, Executive Director – Center for Business Analytics at LeBow. “The Analytics 50 list honors the best-in-class data and analytics innovation already taking place across the industry – and we’re thrilled to be providing the Precisely and Comcast teams with much-deserved recognition.”

The Drexel LeBow Analytics 50 award ceremony took place in Philadelphia, PA on 5th October. Access the full list of honorees or learn more about the collaboration between Comcast and Precisely.
