Data, as the foundation for all advanced analytics and machine learning, is one of the most strategic assets any organization can have. At SNP, we have made AI an integral part of our own digital transformation. Learn how we are unleashing the power of AI with a modern data strategy that allows us to locate, refine, and connect data more efficiently than ever.

Data Engineering

The world of data is ever-evolving, and the growth of cloud technologies has fueled new opportunities for businesses to explore.

Data engineering helps organizations design and implement the management, monitoring, security, and privacy of data using the full stack of Azure data services to satisfy business needs. Data engineering saw a gradual evolution from the days of handling data on Excel spreadsheets and local machines to handling data on the cloud. In the modern business environment, data engineering could be viewed in two ways—dealing with a cloud-native data warehouse where all the organizational data is processed or handling different cloud-hosted datasets from different departments that are analyzed on a centralized system or software.

Data Consulting Services

SNP Technologies will deliver the following consulting services:

SNP Offers:
  • Data & Insights Maturity Assessment

Data Migration Services

SNP Technologies’ Azure database migration services are 360o of managed services designed to perform migrations from multiple database sources to the Azure cloud platform with negligible downtime. It provides businesses with a highly available and comprehensive solution. SNP would integrate some of the existing Azure tools and services in the data migration services.

SNP’s Data Migration Process
  • Pre-migration Services: The pre-migration process starts with the discovery process where the database assets and application stack are recorded. The next step is the assessment of workloads to fix recommendations. The last step in the pre-migration services is converting the source schema to work in the targeted environment.
  • Migration: This is the step where the actual migration takes place in which the source data, source schema, and objects are moved to target. After migration, the target schema is synced with the data and the source. The last step is the cutover from the source to the target environment.
  • Post-migration Services: SNP will make necessary changes to the applications in a predefined iterative manner and perform functional and performance tests. According to the test results, we will address the performance issues and retest to confirm the performance improvements.
Benefits Of Moving To Cloud With Azure SQL Database
  • Productivity & Performance Hype: Organizations get up to 100 TB of on-demand scalable storage per DB.
  • Unbeatable Security: Organizations are ensured of 99.99% availability of SLA and layers of security.
  • Built-in intelligence: Businesses can reap the benefits of intelligent performance tuning and intelligent protection
  • Seamless Compatibility: The migration provides the broadest SQL server which is highly compatible with VNET support.
  • Competitive TCO: Organizations can save up to 80% of overhead costs with Azure hybrid benefit and reserved capacity.

Data Warehouse Solutions

A modern data warehouse takes modern and complex data processing up a notch. It brings together data of an organization of any scale easily and provides insights through analytical dashboards, reports and advanced analytics for all the users across the organization.

What A Data Warehouse Delivers For Your Organization
  • You can combine all your structured, unstructured and semi-structured data using Azure Data Factory to Azure Blob Storage
  • Organizations can now leverage data in Azure Blob Storage and perform scalable analytics with Azure Databricks to achieve data transformation.
  • Once the data is transformed, it can be moved to Azure Synapse Analytics to combine existing structured data, thus, creating a hub for all the organizations’ data. Data is scaled by leveraging connectors between Azure Databricks and Azure Synapse Analytics.
  • Organizations can develop reports and analytical dashboards on top of Azure Data Warehouse to derive insights from data.
  • Databricks allows users to run ad hoc queries on data stored within.
How Data Warehouse Works
  • Ingest: Azure Data Factory allows code-free data ingestion from 75+ data integration connectors.
  • Store: Azure Data Lake provides a highly scalable solution for big data analytics with a T-SQL query over any data with 99.9% SLA.
  • Prep: It provides a fast, easy and collaborative Apache Spark-based analytics platform. With Azure Databricks, organizations can go up to 10x faster than vanilla Spark.
  • Serve: A SQL based, fully managed, petabyte-scale cloud data warehouse stores and processes all the data. Azure SQL Data Warehouse is 10x faster than Redshift.
  • Reporting: Power BI aids in generating powerful reports once the data is processed and refined.

Data Architecture Solutions

Cloud has changed the way applications are designed and data is processed and stored. Long gone are the days of a one-stop solution single database that handles all of the solution’s data. Technology now allows the users to use multiple, specialized storage, each optimized to serve specific capabilities. Multiple layers of business logic that are read and written in a single data layer is obsolete. Solutions are now designed and developed around the data pipeline that describes how data flows through a solution, where it is processed, where it is stored and how it is consumed.

Data Is Structured In Two Ways
  • Traditional RDBMS Workloads: The workloads that include Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) are classified here. OLTP systems process typically relational data with a predefined schema and a set of constraints. Multiple data sources emerging for the organization are consolidated into a data warehouse to move and process the source data.
  • Big Data Solutions: Traditional databases cannot handle large and complex data and therefore big data is the way to handle them. Big data architecture is designed to handle the ingestion, processing, and analysis of large and complex data. The data here is processed in real-time and it involves a large amount of non-relational data.
