Cloud Data Warehouse

Is your Data Warehouse Ready for Next Generation Analytics and Machine Learning?

Can it handle exabyte scale queries…

…or does it slow down during data loads and heavy usage?

Does it support real-time analytics on streaming data…

…or do you have to wait for the nightly batch load?

Would you rather work on analytics & insights…

…or do you enjoy spending time configuring, monitoring, tuning, provisioning and capacity planning?

Legacy data warehouse appliances just weren’t designed to handle the data that modern enterprises need.  Businesses are forced to choose between performance and innovation.

The Democratization of Data

Cloud Data Warehouses (CDW) were designed from the ground up to handle the high-velocity, large-scale data sets that are the hallmark of today’s data landscape.

Cloud Data Warehouses are different from the previous generation
of on-premise technologies:

Inexpensive Storage: You can store all your data for a fraction of the cost. You no longer have to choose what to put into the data warehouse

Elastic and On-Demand Compute: Forget long-running batch jobs forever

Support for SQL and Analytics: Cloud technology can not only support SQL based technologies, but also powerful Spark clusters for analytics

No Management and Upgrade Cycles: Cloud-based service eliminates the need to worry about technology refreshes and upgrade cycles

What does this mean?

  • No more overbuying compute for peak capacity
  • Store full historical data sets for better insights
  • Load data in real time without impacting mission-critical business processes
  • Make data available to everyone that needs it, not just a select few
  • Advanced analytics and business intelligence workloads can run on the same data

Go to the Cloud!

Moving a system that is the life-blood of your decision making is not something to be taken lightly. There are several concerns that you may rightfully have about such a migration.  Core Compete can help you get there faster, more reliably and with confidence.

Plan, Build, Manage

We break cloud data migrations into three phases.  By identifying the key questions and challenges at each, Core Compete has designed and implemented solutions to accelerate and deliver real business value at every step of the journey.

Plan Phase

What is the Right Technology Choice?

There are seemingly endless vendors and technologies offering cloud-native data processing. Even after picking a cloud platform, there are still many choices to make including orchestration, ingestion, and data access engines.

How do we Manage Risk and Achieve ROI?

You need to plan a migration carefully for business continuity.

Accounting for complexity across the project, including the unique nature of operational data feeds, cut-over and roll-back strategies, data and report validation, performance engineering and UAT can make this a daunting task.

Start with a Capability Map

Starting with a capability-based strategic vision of a modern cloud data and analytics ecosystem, Core Compete works with our clients to recommend technologies that fit their unique needs.

Leverage our Project Planning Accelerators

Data Discovery and Project Architecture accelerators enable us to deliver comprehensive estimations, technology roadmaps, and proofs of concept.

Agile Analytics Methodology

Our Agile Analytics Methodology delivers rapid time-to-value by combining best practices in data warehouse migrations with a pragmatic application of agile development and delivery.

Build Phase

How do we bring the technical expertise and capacity to do the deployment?

Both cloud technology and the data warehouse technologies are new. Most enterprises do not have the skill-sets readily available to build or migrate to cloud data warehouses.

How do we migrate your data, while ensuring business continuity?

Data from source systems comes in all kinds of formats. Ingestion requires batch and real-time loads .

Mainframes and queues can pose difficulties in cut-over. One-time loads can be very large, catch-up loads post the initial loads need to be planned.

How do we ensure ETL and business rules migrate correctly?

The last thing you want from a cloud data warehouse deployment is that the numbers look different after migration.

Endless cycles are spent on validating the output and the new system could struggle gaining business acceptance.

Technical expertise in Cloud and Data Warehousing

Core Compete’s 250+ consultants have more than 450 certifications in cloud, analytics and cloud data warehousing. 

Data Migration

We have developed methodologies and accelerators that will aid in accelerating getting data out of the current Enterprise Data Warehouses (Teradata, Netezza, Oracle) and having connectivity to data sources on an on-going basis.

Data Validation

Be absolutely certain that the data in your migrated cloud data warehouse is identical to the data in your legacy system.  Leverage our validation routines and reduce risk with rock-solid audit and traceability reporting.

Business Continuity & Transition

We partner with our customers to ensure that the transition and cut-over plan considers all aspects of business continuity. Our UAT and Parallel-Prod activities ensure that we eliminate the chance of unwanted surprises.

Manage Phase

Do we have the bandwidth, knowledge and experience to manage the new CDW?

Acquiring skills to manage the CDW is a low value-added activity, while finding a team with the right skills can be time-consuming and expensive.

How can we monitor usage, and continually improve the service?

Cloud costs if not monitored closely can become unmanaged.

How do we ensure that our data in the cloud is safe and secure?

Data privacy and security are critical, and you need to be ready to defend yourselves from malicious actors.

Agile Analytics Managed Service

Core Compete provides a comprehensive managed service that eliminates the need for you to build a team for cloud data warehouse operations.

Data Operations

Core Compete’s managed service will not only cover the infrastructure and applications, but the data pipelines as well.

A3 Management Portal

Our A3 Platform offers application-aware, fully integrated performance metrics for the end-to-end application. It addresses operational uptime, as well as ensuring a continuously secure and compliant environment.
