NSEIT Azure SQLake Framework


Azure SQLake is a serverless, configurable and a light-weight solution for data lake and data warehouse solutions entirely based on SQL.


NSEIT's Azure Generic Data Lake “SQLake” framework is an SQL-based, serverless, and configurable solution designed to redefine data ingestion, standardization, and business transformations within Data Lakes and Data Warehouses. As industries navigate the complexities of data integration and transformation, the demand for an end-to-end data lake framework becomes paramount. Azure SQLake steps in as a versatile solution, accommodating the diverse needs of customers across domains.

Industry Challenges

The contemporary data landscape is riddled with complexities, and the absence of a robust end-to-end data lake framework amplifies these challenges, casting a shadow on efficient data management.

  1. Data Fragmentation: One of the primary challenges is the fragmentation of data processes across disparate systems and platforms. This lack of cohesion results in data silos, hindering a unified and holistic view of organizational information.

  2. Operational Inefficiencies: The absence of a unified framework often leads to operational inefficiencies. Data processes become disjointed and cumbersome, causing bottlenecks that impede the seamless flow of information crucial for decision-making.

  3. Security Vulnerabilities: Fragmented data management opens the door to security vulnerabilities. Without a consolidated solution, organizations face heightened risks of data breaches and unauthorized access, jeopardizing the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive information.

  4. Scalability Hurdles: Traditional data management approaches struggle with scalability, especially in the face of ever-growing volumes of data. Businesses find it challenging to adapt and scale their data infrastructure to meet evolving requirements.
