a Modern Data Platform Architecture


In a changing world of big data, real-time and AI development, organizations are trying to set-up a data-driven organization. In such an organization, data is accessible at user’s finger tips, forward-looking predictions drive the decision-making and ad-hoc questions can instantly be addressed. A data-driven organization needs a modern data platform to enable data & AI applications

A data-driven organization needs a modern data platform to enable data & AI applications

Against this ambition, many organizations struggle in setting-up a data platform build for growth & innovation. Traditional BI data warehousing offers great benefit in self-service BI and easy access to governed enterprise information yet it fails to support real-time reporting, to handle various data source formats and to fully unlock AI to answer forward-looking questions.

element61 has defined a Modern Data Platform as a future-proof architecture for Business Analytics. This architecture has all components to support both Modern BI data warehouse, AI against Big data (and in production) and real-time analytics.



How to design a Modern Data Platform on Microsoft Azure?


Microsoft Azure has all the building blocks to build a Modern Data Platform. We can leverage Azure Data Factory for scalable ETL, Azure Data Lake to store all structured and unstructured information and leverage Azure Synapse Analytics and Azure Databricks for building reporting, data and AI pipelines and applications.

If your organization has real-time data (from IoT or Digital systems), Azure Event Hub can receive and handle all real-time events and with Azure Databricks and Databricks Delta we can transform your real-time events instantly sending them - within seconds - to your Power BI reports and dashboards.

This is an example Modern Data Platform Architecture on Azure:
