A prominent, global professional services organization had been utilizing Cloudera with Hadoop to fulfill their cloud-based data storage and analytics needs. News of the technology’s upcoming obsoletion prompted the client to evaluate all industry options in hopes of identifying a more advanced solution to take their data analytics and reporting outputs to the next level. They also desired a solution that could more easily scale up or down with changing workload demands and was more cost-effective to manage and maintain.
phData proposed migrating the client’s data to the Snowflake Data Cloud and suggested incorporating StreamSets and Tableau to better transition the client from the features they had grown accustomed to in Hadoop.
Working together with the client, the phData Data Engineering team strategically executed a fast and efficient migration with minimal errors.
The technology ecosystem behind the client’s organization consists of a blend of commercial software and cloud-native Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings, all hosted within AWS cloud accounts. Collectively, these integrated tools provide a workbench and hosting service for teams and a foundation for the client’s data strategy.
As their existing platform support was reaching its end of life, the client reached out to phData to serve as their guide, leading them to more modern, scalable technology solutions.
phData carefully evaluated the client’s existing environment to understand:
The client hosts several tenants within its platform. The platform team played an essential role in collaborating with tenants, setting up environments, capturing inventories, and planning the multi-tenant migration in collaboration with phData during the following stages of the migration:
The client’s platform is a multi-tenant environment hosting applications across regions. The process of migration is repeatable to a larger extent in a Factory Model.
The client’s migration relied on a series of automations developed by the phData team, including:
The client knew that phData was a reliable and experienced partner in providing data migration and analytics recommendations and services.
At the end of the engagement, the client could migrate smoothly to Snowflake and shift their focus from maintenance to fully scaling their BI reporting and analytics.
