AWS data platform accelerator

Customer Challenge  

Data ingestion, centralisation, curation and warehousing are fundamental to unlocking the value of data assets within a business. The challenge many customers face is adapting aging reporting infrastructures to modern cloud environments and ensuring they are capturing the full value of these capabilities by adapting legacy frameworks and ways of working to deliver analytics faster and with higher quality.  

Solution  

Our Data Accelerator is a fully templated Enterprise Data Platform solution for AWS, Snowflake and Databricks that has been designed and built by Versent. It provides our customers with battle-hardened templates for:  

  • Rapid implementation of ingestion, Data lake, Lakehouse and Warehouse architecture patterns  
  • Supports a range of real-time and batch sources using a wide variety of file types and formats  
  • Event-driven data architecture to enable both batch or real-time ingestion and ETL services with minimal rework or recoding  
  • Integrated meta-data tracking and data profiling capabilities to ensure data quality remains consistent across the layers of the solution  
  • Integrated security model (RBAC framework) for the data and underlying services using a combination of services, including AWS Lake formation   
  • Highly scalable workloads that leverage a predominantly server-less architecture  
  • Pre-sized workloads to support small, medium and large pipelines to minimise upfront decision-making related to architecture  
  • Highly configurable solution templates that enable right-sizing of workloads and minimisation of ongoing run costs   
  • Integrated logging, monitoring and support framework across ingestion and ETL services  

Customer Value  

  • Significantly less time spend on architectural decision making and more on value delivery  
  • Integrated with our DataOps delivery philosophy and ways of working  
  • Abstracts the complexity of native AWS services for Data teams  
  • Best practice patterns and processes on day one that scale with when you are ready.

Data Architecture Accelerator 

Customer Challenge  

Data architecture is central to how an organisation derives value from its expanding asset base. Poor quality data architecture significantly complicates how data effectively integrates at lakehouse, warehouse and operational analytic layers to deliver meaningful customer insights. Working with customers, we’ve learned that unlocking data architecture constraints are as important as the underlying tools and technology used to deliver it.  

Solution  

The Versent we have developed a number of innovated data architecture design patterns to dramatically accelerate and simplify the development of our clients’ data architecture objectives.   

  • Visual modelling (model-storming approaches)  
  • Highly adapted to agile warehouse and analytic deliver  
  • Aligned to all major modelling methodologies (Inmon, Kimball, Data Vault 2.0)  

Customer Value  

  • A better understanding of how to deliver data as a true enterprise data asset  
  • Engaging and easy to understand for business and technology stakeholders  
  • Transformational way-of-working that have enduring impacts on your data operating model
