Azure Data Platform & Integration

We build and maintain your organisation’s data estates

We build your modern data platform and integrate it with your systems as the foundation of your data analytics

Data Platform provides the foundation for managing business information and your organisation’s data estates. It includes processes to ingest data from various systems, transform it with business rules and adequate governance to support the collation of data to drive business insights.

Our team of world-class data engineers will help you design, build and maintain a Data Warehouse / Data Lake that will accommodate Big Data, large volumes, different data types, and massive data processing workloads.

We can also help you with legacy system retirement, replacing traditional Data Warehouse with a modern one optimised for today’s requirements in big data, analytics, real-time operation, high-performance, and cost control.

Traditional Data Warehouses were never designed to handle the growing volume, variety and velocity of Big Data. As new business practices require bigger and fresher data, you might have already thought about modernising your Data Warehouse to keep it competitive, growing, and aligned with new business and technology requirements.

Azure Data Platform & Services

Data warehousing and analytics

architecture-data-warehousing

Your company may have data sources on many different platforms:

  • SQL Server on-premises
  • Oracle on-premises
  • Azure SQL Database
  • Azure table storage
  • Azure Cosmos DB
  • Other legacy applications and databases

 

Data is loaded from these different data sources using several Azure components:

  • Azure Data Lake Storage is used to stage source data before it’s loaded into Azure Synapse.
  • Data Factory orchestrates the transformation of staged data into a common structure in Azure Synapse. Data Factory uses PolyBase when loading data into Azure Synapse to maximize throughput.
  • Azure Synapse is a distributed system for storing and analyzing large datasets. Its use of massive parallel processing (MPP) makes it suitable for running high-performance analytics. Azure Synapse can use PolyBase to rapidly load data from Azure Data Lake Storage.
  • Analysis Services provides a semantic model for your data. It can also increase system performance when analyzing your data.
  • Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools to analyze data and share insights. Power BI can query a semantic model stored in Analysis Services, or it can query Azure Synapse directly.
  • Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) authenticates users who connect to the Analysis Services server through Power BI. Data Factory can also use Azure AD to authenticate to Azure Synapse via a service principal or Managed identity for Azure resources.

Potential use cases

This approach can also be used to:

  • Establish a data warehouse to be a single source of truth for your data.
  • Integrate relational data sources with other unstructured datasets.
  • Use semantic modeling and powerful visualization tools for simpler data analysis.
