Cloudera and Accenture demonstrate strength in their relationship with an accelerator called the Smart Data Transition Toolkit for migration of legacy data warehouses into Cloudera Data Platform
Data warehousing is the backbone of every data driven organization, providing mission critical analytics. Today, modern data warehousing has evolved to meet the intensive demands of the newest analytics required for a business to be data driven. While this “data tsunami” may pose a new set of challenges, it also opens up opportunities for a wide variety of high value business intelligence (BI) and other analytics use cases that most companies are eager to deploy.
Traditional data warehouse vendors may have maturity in data storage, modeling, and high-performance analysis. Yet, these legacy solutions are showing their age and can no longer meet these new demands in a cost-effective manner. The key questions that need to be answered are:
If you do not have answers to the above questions with your existing data warehouse, then you might prefer choosing a Cloudera Data Platform Data Warehouse (CDW) solution. Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Data Warehouse enables IT to deliver a cloud-native, self-service analytic experience for BI analysts that goes from zero to query in minutes. It outperforms other data warehouses on all sizes and types of data, including structured and unstructured, while scaling cost-effectively past petabytes. Running on CDW is fully integrated with streaming, data engineering, and machine learning analytics. It has a consistent framework that secures and provides governance for all data and metadata on private clouds, multiple public clouds, or hybrid clouds.
Accenture, one of Cloudera’s premier technology partners, looked at this opportunity jointly with Cloudera and built a framework of tools called the Smart Data Transition Toolkit. This toolkit helps customers migrate their legacy data warehouses into CDW. The Accenture Smart Data Transition Toolkit simplifies the movement of data from expensive, inflexible legacy data platforms into the CDP.
Accenture’s Smart Data Transition Toolkit leverages six proprietary accelerators to reduce the cost of CDP migration by as much as forty percent (40%). Each of these accelerators support multiple legacy systems, including Teradata, Netezza, Oracle, etc. The Accenture Smart Data Transition Toolkit is also tightly integrated with Cloudera Data Platform for cloud data management and Cloudera Shared Data Experiences for secure, self-service analytics.
Below is a description of the various elements of the toolkit (as shown above).
Here is the flow of events during migration by leveraging tools from Smart Data Transition Toolkit.
Let’s take a look at how Accenture´s Smart Data Transition Toolkit is integrated with CDW. In the initial phase, Accenture has built an integration with CDW to migrate legacy data warehouses like Netezza, Teradata and Oracle. If there are any other legacy EDW to be migrated, it’s easy to incorporate them into Accenture´s Smart Data Transition Toolkit as a source for migration into CDW.
CDW provides the flexibility to store your data anywhere either on Cloud or on-premise. The flexibility can also provide you with a variety of options to store your data which you can migrate from legacy EDWs. If you choose to run CDW on a Public Cloud infrastructure, then you can store data in either Amazon S3 or ADLS depending on the chosen Public Cloud infrastructure. If you choose to run CDW on-premise, then you can store your data either on HDFS or Ozone object store built for on-premise.
The data from your existing data warehouse is migrated to the storage option you choose, and all the metadata is migrated into SDX (Shared Data Experiences) layer of Cloudera Data Platform. Once the data is on Cloudera Data Platform, customers have the flexibility to deploy CDW either on a public cloud or private cloud to meet all use case requirements. CDW is a managed data warehouse service that runs Cloudera’s powerful engines (Impala, Hive LLAP) on a containerized architecture to let you meet SLAs, onboard new use cases easily, and minimize costs.
Some of the key benefits of Accenture’s Smart Data Transition Toolkit on Cloudera Data Platform Data Warehouse are as follows:
The client decided to migrate away from their relational database-centric Enterprise Data Warehouse as an ingestion and data processing platform after the maintenance costs, limited flexibility, and growth of the RDBMS platform became unsustainable with the increased complexity of the client’s data footprint. A modern data and NoSQL-based ecosystem, when integrated with elements of the existing RDBMS data warehouse platform, provided the client with the scale and flexibility to meet the organization’s hunger for data, data-based analytics, and more integrated views of their members:
The Cloudera and Accenture technology alliance combines Accenture’s deep industry experience, analytics skills, and global delivery with Cloudera’s Data Platform (CDP) to increase enterprise-wide data visibility, reduce data management costs, manage risk, and address compliance requirements. Together, Cloudera and Accenture provide a complete solution for transforming data into clear and actionable insights. We deliver on proven technology on-premise or in the cloud, globally. Clients benefit from a seamless and rapid delivery use cases by combining the expertise and scale of both companies. If you have any challenges managing your legacy data warehouses, the Cloudera-Accenture technology partnership can help to solve those challenges to get your analytics up and running on a modern cloud native platform – CDP Data Warehouse.
