A single source of truth: Breaking down data silos for future-ready decisions

Admin March 25, 2022

Data-driven decisions are everything for businesses today. A reliable source of enterprise data for reporting and analytics and effective governance for the data sets are critical for growth and revenue. A leading cloud computing organization needed to deliver better and faster actionable insights with a modernized data platform, drive innovation and grow the business with trusted data sharing.

They were experiencing slow innovation of system enhancements and a lack of uniform views of business processes and data models of source systems. Effective documentation was missing, environments to enable user communities were lacking and data quality checks were not in place. They needed an optimal cloud solution to transform their legacy enterprise data warehouse and enable better data-driven decision-making.

The Solution

The approach was to start with the business outcomes and work our way backward to build a new enterprise data lake primarily on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Considering that we are in an era of the multi-cloud, Collabera made sure to check if other external solutions provided the maximum benefit. Keeping our focus on the future rather than what can be done just today, we prioritized efficiency, security, and speed of execution among other things.

  • A Test Data Framework was proposed to the CDO to validate straight loads to GCP Big Query
  • Start with a greenfield environment with a base governance model and build from that base
  • Developed common patterns that can be adopted across all the focus areas, like data modeling, transformation, usage of the data, and so on
  • Alooma was used for integrating data from DBMS, streaming data from Kafka, and batch file onboarding
  • BigQuery Data Transfer Service was used for integrating data from SaaS and AWS Kinesis

Tech Stack: GCP Big Query, Alooma, Kafka, AWS Kinesis
