Energy companies hold massive amounts of data, and suboptimal data arrangements can be disappointing — not to mention wasted resources and massive revenue loss for energy corporations. Read this case study to know how Emtec Digital helped an Energy organization with a modernized and automated Azure data factory. The solution enabled them get deep data insights and facilitate data sharing in real-time.
The client is a multinational energy supplier to various leading shipping corporations, airlines, and electricity companies. Over 80 airports, hundreds of storage terminals, and more than 3000 retail locations support their global network. All these operational data points help them capture enormous amounts of valuable data.
Our client desired to use their existing enterprise data to power business growth. However, to achieve it, they needed to ensure coordination of data at local and global levels. Despite Azure Data Factory being already in use, it was not enough for their emerging business needs.
Also, having enormous amounts of data on hand did not help with the required data insights to make informed decisions and ensure business growth.
A modern data strategy was fundamental to fulfilling these ambitions.
The complexities of the existing process were inadequate to meet the client’s ambitions. For example, the time-consuming feature development and release process was acting as a barrier and there were few challenges, like:
The client was facing challenges with the creation of multiple environments which affected product releases. Also, it impacted the speed and ability to innovate. Furthermore, the absence of DevOps resulted in decreased business growth.
The traditional process for building software environments, fixing bugs, and changing code was time-consuming. It also hampered the team productivity. The client needed an automated process to create various software environments.
The lack of a quick bug fixing process and workflow management meant multiple teams worked on several issues at the same time.
Azure Notebook had no check-in policy and no trace of code being overwritten or updated by users.
While looking for a potential partner, the client reached out to Emtec Digital. After analyzing the existing setup, we concluded that a solution for all these challenges was a modernized and automated system for environmental provisioning and release.
In addition to the client’s existing Azure infrastructure, our experts suggested simplifying the use of Azure Data Factory in conjunction with the implementation of automated CI/CD pipelines in DevOps, supported by Emtec Digital’s own accelerators.
