Transform a flood of data from multiple streams into a single, navigable data lake that delivers real business value.
Time was you could invest in a single operational database or CRM system and that would be a single source of truth for all your business information. In today’s data age, your single source of truth is now blind to many essential facts.
Real-time data from websites, social accounts, IoT devices,internal facility management and production systems are just some of the truths that can be added to your traditional business systems to create a broader, more nuanced and detailed picture of what is happening in your organisation.
How can you bring these diverse data sources together in a way that will enable you to unleash the value of the data?
A data lake is designed to hold structured and unstructured data; enabling you to pool data from these myriad sources in such a way that it can be catalogued, optimised and queried to deliver new and innovative insights for your business.
In this way, a data lake isn’t a replacement for your existing data warehouse but, rather, a new solution for capturing the data and enabling you to think freely and drive novel insights that have the potential to transform your business:
With Amazon Web Services (AWS), a data lake isn’t a specific product or even set of products. AWS offers an architecture pattern and guidance to define what a data lake should be and do. Users can use pre existing AWS technologies to deliver data lake functionality.
As a result, there are numerous ways to approach a data lake project on AWS.While this gives users the freedom to configure a solution that closely matches their needs, it can be a real challenge for inexperienced team members who haven’t built a data lake on AWS before.With multiple ways to achieve it, building a data lake on AWS can seem deceptively simple. However, building a data lake that is functional, secure and easy to use isn’t so straight forward.Accessing expert assistance is, therefore, vital.
Having delivered data lake projects for blue chip clients, the DataPhoenix team has developed a highly successful framework and methodology for architecting and delivering data lake on AWS. Our approach combines our proven methodology with best-in-class tools that deliver essential functionality and orchestration capabilities. You can augment this with our other customised services, such as data or application cloud migration. This way, you gain a tailored solution that matches your needs precisely.
