The ability to elastically scale storage and computation resources together with the pay-as-you-go pricing model makes the Cloud the ideal environment to design modern data platforms capable of overcoming the traditional limitations of on-premises data warehouses and data lakes.

For this reason, integration, storage and data analysis workloads are among the first use cases activated in the cloud transformation paths of many companies.
However, in order to take full advantage of the Cloud to increase development agility while reducing management costs, it is necessary to rethink the architecture of data platforms.


The main problems of data platforms on prem are:

  • Inability to scale resources elastically. At times of high load the platform is often in trouble while at times of low load it pays for idle resources.
  • Inability to scale storage and computation independently. Having to increase one must also increase the other. The scaling unit is the server within the cluster.
  • High operational costs to configure and manage complex, distributed architectures that are often composed of multiple technologies developed by different vendors.

will be deployed or migrated to a cloud by 2022
of new system deployments in cloud
ill be based on a cloud data management ecosystem by 2023


The cloud data platform leverages the peculiarities of the cloud to acquire, transform, store and make accessible a potentially unlimited amount of data while reducing operational costs and increasing development agility.

Once acquired in batch or real-time mode, data is stored and consolidated within the data lake by means of on-demand integration processes.

On top of the data lake consisting of a scalable and cost-effective storage system (i.e., object storage), query engines are grafted to access the data. Depending on the type of access pattern, it is possible to have different types of query engines.

It is also possible to have a data virtualization tool to provide analytic consumers with a single semantic layer of access to the data thereby masking the underlying fragmentation into multiple query engines.

Acquisition and consolidation of data from both batch and real-time systems

Storage of raw data and all subsequent consolidation layers in low-cost storage systems with potentially unlimited storage possibilities

Access to stored data with different query engines depending on the type of query and underlying workload

The complete route

1. Setup
Definition of the technology infrastructure and data architecture. Connection to data sources.
2. Land
First complete data product with data acquisition and consolidation pipeline. Exposure to analytic consumers through a centralized semantic layer.
3. Expand
Addition of new data products and coverage of new data domains.


Potentially infinite storage and computing capacity
Elastic resource scaling
Possibility to scale storage and computation separately
Consumption-based pricing model
Reduced integration costs between data lake and data warehouse
Reducing operational costs
Simplified and controlled data access thanks to the unified semantic layer
Greater development agility
