Blueshift™ is an expert in designing and building Modern Data Platforms at scale on Azure using the latest data engineering architectural patterns: • Data Lakehouse architecture pattern across all stages of the data lifecycle – from ingestion to visualization. Traditional data solutions are purpose-built for a specific stage • Data Fabric to simplify data access by automating data discovery, enabling self-service consumption and governance despite where data resides in the enterprise • Data Mesh to handle vast, distributed data consumers and views with domain-specific handling in data pipelines - unlike the monolithic architecture of legacy systems. • Data Virtualization to access data at the source without moving data, accelerating time to value with faster and more accurate queries.   • Metadata Driven to decouple data model from underlying architecture to create agility. Traditional data warehouses require static models that cannot evolve with your business. • Data Governance to processes, policies, and standards that protect data & maintain integrity, and make it available for consumers - with lineage and explainability of how and why data has moved over time. 

We will also evaluate requirements for a new or existing Cloud Landing Zone based on the Azure Cloud Adoption Framework. Specifically, for (1) architectural design (2) security and compliance (3) scalability, reliability, availability and performance. During the assessment Azure’s data platform-as-a-service capabilities will be considered are: • Azure Data Lake Gen 2 • Azure Databricks • Azure Synpase • Azure Functions & Event Grid • Azure Streaming Analytics and/or Azure EventHub • PowerBI
