Embracing digital transformation: Migrating a legacy data warehouse to the Cloud

Lebara, a Telecom Network Operator (MVNO/FMVNO) with a presence in the European region, encountered significant challenges with its existing data warehouse system. These challenges included fragmented documentation, unclear requirements, knowledge gaps, and ongoing concerns regarding data quality. In response to these obstacles, the client sought a solution to streamline data management processes, enhance data quality assurance, and improve overall operational efficiency.

The Solution

Lebara’s journey to data modernization through Data Lake

In partnership with Lebara, Confiz contributed to the development of a centralized Data Lake on Azure, incorporating a suite of technologies including Azure Data Factory, Apache Nifi, Azure Databricks, Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure DevOps, PySpark, and Power BI. This initiative aimed to create a unified platform for in-depth reporting, advanced analytics, and forecasting while replacing legacy enterprise BI systems.

Confiz worked on staff augmentation model along with Lebara and other vendors to successfully transform and optimize data by integrating diverse data sources for enhanced analysis and detailed reporting. Leveraging our team’s expertise in SAFe practices and agile project management, we played a pivotal role in enhancing the client’s operational efficiency and streamlining processes across the board.

Our collaborative efforts bridged time zones and brought together a culturally diverse team, highlighting our commitment to revolutionizing Lebara’s operational framework. The data movement within the Data Lake, powered by Apache NiFi and orchestrated through Azure Data Factory, facilitated the processing of analytical datasets in Databricks and stored in Synapse, ensuring accessibility through Microsoft Power BI.
