Client's Business Goals

As per the client’s business requirement, we need to build a centralized data storage for all SaaS-based & on-premise applications accessible over the internet.

Challenges

Client is already having a system and facing challenges with its existing architecture.

Existing Architecture

Bunch of on-premises applications built with some specific purpose, a few third-party systems like Dynamics GP for Finance & Data warehouse for reporting

Most of the backend data reside in Microsoft SQL Server DBs & flow internally through real-time replications

Challenges with Existing Architecture

Difficult to maintain different data servers & databases

Needs to constantly monitor real-time replications & keep them running

Reporting was quite difficult due to decentralized data storages

Our Solution

To fulfill the client’s business requirement and deal with the challenges there is a need to change the working model and folder structure of centralized data storage.

Explanation of Diagram Components

API: On-premises applications have been replaced with SaaS-based applications which provide data in JSON format through Web API calls. This raw data is further processed into meaning form for reporting & analytics purposes.

Azure Data Factory: An ETL tool mainly used for EXTRACT, TRANSFORM & LOAD purposes. We used the Azure data factory to execute Web API code (using CustomActivity), copy data from on-premise SQL DBs to Azure Data Lake Store & schedule processing at defined intervals.

Gateway: Gateway or Data Management Gateway is an intermediate bridge between on-premises systems and the Azure cloud. We configured this to migrate on-premise SQL data to Azure cloud.

Azure Data Lake Store:  This is a centralized storage account to store all application data in a generalized format. All the data is stored as comma-separated values for smooth retrieval of data.

Replace on-premise applications with SaaS-based applications to reduce development & maintenance overhead

Migrate existing on-premise databases to the cloud (Microsoft Azure)

Centralized data from all applications into Azure Data Lake Store

Incremental load of data using Azure Data Factory

Generalized formats for storing all systems data – storing data in text files as a comma-separated resulting best utilization of data storages and saving data spaces

Implement raw level & folder level security using Azure Active Directory (following best security policy & standards)
