This assessment gives you a clear picture of the Azure Data Warehouse solution and its implementation in your IT infrastructure
This assessment gives you a clear picture of the Azure Data Warehouse solution and its implementation in your IT infrastructure, developed in three main steps:
ENVISIONING You will get an overview about the state-of-the-art of the Azure Data Platform offering: both new and well-established services, common problems that could arise and how to solve them. Also, security will be a pivotal topic throughout the whole session, both in general and service-specific terms. The envisioning session will have a practical approach, with real-world use cases and best practices from field experience.
ASSESSMENT The second step will consists in gathering information about the actual data ecosystem of the customer, like: • database services and data sources currently in use • types of workload • ETL/ELT processes • access and security requirements • pain points of the actual solution • desired improvements • constraints to keep in mind
PROPOSAL Gathered data will then be used to design one or more proposals to move the actual architecture to Azure, or to host in Azure a brand new one (depending on what the customer is asking for). Such proposals will include: • a conceptual schema of the solution • a descriptive list of the service which compose the architecture • the reasons that led to such choices • any pros, cons, and attention points • a possible range of monthly cost to maintain the solution.
