Turning your raw data into insights with a unified data lakehouse

Traditionally business data have been highly structured data, and you stored them centrally in a data warehouse. Thanks to business intelligence, you turned those data into insights.

However, more and more data relevant for your business are unstructured, such as images, videos and social media feeds. They are not organized in a pre-defined manner, and you need a data lake to store and process them.

The challenge with a data lake is that it can quickly become a data swamp if you just dump data into it. Moreover, having to use different systems depending on whether your data is structured or unstructured isn’t efficient.

Unifying structured and unstructured data

That’s why Databricks introduced their data lakehouse: a unified system to store and process structured and unstructured data in an organized way. This eliminates the data silos that have traditionally separated business intelligence (BI) and artificial intelligence (AI, more specifically machine learning) applications. As a result, your BI developers and data scientists are able to use the same platform, with the same user interface, so you can increase cross-team understanding of your data use cases and leverage the full potential of your data.

The Databricks Lakehouse Platform gives your data processing the reliability and performance you need, so you can focus on putting your data to work. Under the hood it uses open source solutions and open data formats, so you’re not locked into a walled garden. And with plugins you get access to a big ecosystem of external open source projects and Databricks partners, with a series of capabilities at your fingertips.

Data lakehouse in the cloud

Databricks can be run on the public cloud providers Google, AWS and Azure. At Cegeka we’re running the Databricks framework on Microsoft Azure. This is a cost-efficient and scalable way to run a data lakehouse. It’s a fully pay-per-use model: you only pay for the data you store and then only for data processing while it’s running.

We’ve created our own Cegeka framework around Databricks. Thanks to this, we’re able to set up a data lakehouse very efficiently. After plugging in your data sources, we can immediately start processing your data.

From raw data to insights

Building a strong data foundation will allow your company to start small, and expand to more advanced use cases as you go. The lakehouse concept is the modern architecture for data and AI. Allowing you to start with use cases based on Business Intelligence (BI), and going forward tapping into the BI reports to create value with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Think big and start small.

A data lakehouse is a strong technological foundation to build on, but you also need the right skillset to get the results you want. That’s were our Data Solutions team comes in. With their technological and data science skills they transform your raw data into actionable insights.
