The Role of Professional Companies in Large Scale Website Data Scraping
Organizations which do not rely upon related statistical data possess a low likelihood of succeeding in a rapidly thriving information driven planet. Among the top origins of data is all those data available openly on the web on several sites which are scraped by means of scrapers, and the whole process is called Web Scraping or Data Scraping.
If you are Big Data Company, or an enterprise completely relying on consumer information, then you might think of doing this thing called as web extraction or data extraction all by yourself. However, what if you are trying to scratch massive data from sites likes LinkedIn, Trip Advisor, Yelp, or similar biggies? Large Scale Data Scraping, also known as Mass Scale Data Extraction requires not just massive infrastructure in place, but also an extensive team of developers as well as quality assurance analysts.
This is unimaginable difficult especially when you are a startup just having your stepping stone in the market, or an established enterprise wanting to focus on your core business rather than getting into the complicated process of web data scraping while running it all the time. At this point, you have a professional hardcore company like 3i Data Scraping to do the job for you while taking away all data mining burden from your heads.

It is very important to have the servers and Internet lease lines running all the time for extraction process not to get interrupted. We ensure this through high-end hardware present at our premises costing lacs of rupees, so that real time information is delivered after extraction, whenever the client wants. To avoid any kind of blacklisting scenario, we already have proxy servers, a multitude of IP addresses, and various secret strategies coming to our rescue.

After automated web data scraping process, we ensure manual quality checks on the extracted or mined data via our QA team, who are in constant communication with the developer’s team for any kind of bugs or errors reported. Additionally, if the scrapers need to be modified as per changing site structure or client requirements, we also do so without any hassle.
