The Business Challenges

Our Client faced the following challenges: -

  • High on-premise Infrastructure Maintenance Cost was creating a financial constraint.
  • The siloed data cluster limited the integration of data.
  • Data Science environment took a long time to respond.
  • The Managed Service Cost was increasing due to lack of business management.

Our Solution

  • For proper data management, we put forward the proposal for data lake. We introduced the fivearchitectures that would best suit the organizational needs. These options were: -
    • Option 1 – Azure (Iaas) or Google (Iaas) with Hortonworks
    • Option 2 – Azure (Paas)
    • Option 3 – Google (Paas)
    • Option 4 – Azure (Paas) + On-Premise
    • Option 5 – Google (Paas) + On-Premise
  • Among these five options, we recommended moving with option 4 & 5. These options provide better disaster recovery, along with advanced data security & mobility.

Key Results

  • We successfully reduced the overhead expenses incurred at every stage of operations.
  • Data Governance improved soon after the deployment of our Data Lake Solution.
  • With better governance, we also achieved advanced security and mobility.
  • There was also a clear improvement in disaster recovery. This helped ascertain the challenges before its actual occurrence.
