Prevent your data lake from turning into a data swamp

Build a light-weight efficient data lake on Cloud

The future of Service Providers will be driven by agile and data-driven decision-making. Service Providers in the connectedness industry generate data from various sources every day. Hence, integrating and storing their massive, heterogeneous, and siloed volumes of data in centralized storage is a key imperative.

The demand for every service provider is a data storage and analytics solution of high quality, which could offer more flexibility and agility than traditional systems. A serverless data lake is a popular way of storing and analyzing data in a single repository. It features huge storage, autonomous maintenance, and architectural flexibility for diverse kinds of data.

Storing data of all types and varieties in central storage may be convenient but it can create additional issues. According to Gartner, “80% of data lakes do not include effective metadata management capabilities, which makes them inefficient.” The data lakes of the service providers are not living up to expectations due to reasons such as the data lake turning into a data swamp, lack of business impact, and complexities in data pipeline replication.

Modernize to move at speed

A cloud-native order management can boost speed, scale, and operational efficiency

Fulfilling customer orders timely and accurately has always been critical for businesses to succeed. But achieving this has become a lot harder with rising customer expectations in the digital era. Today’s consumers seek instant gratification. They want new digital services enabled instantly on the device of their choice, on any platform over the phone or online – all of these with as little friction as possible.

So, what stops businesses from exceeding their customer expectations while fulfilling orders? Why are there high order fallouts and failure to meet the promised due date of order activation? Why are the businesses not able to customize and deliver new product offerings quickly as per the varied needs of their customer? Even if they do so, why does it become so costly and time-consuming?

The core problem lies within the legacy order management application that has grown like a huge elephant over time – making the entire ecosystem more complex and rigid to process new orders. It stifles innovation and drives up costs. To overcome this, leading businesses have started their journey to transform legacy order management.


Cloud-native digital platform for order management boosts service providers’ speed, scale, and operational efficiency, enabling them to thrive in the digital era.

A cloud-native digital platform is an ideal transformation approach that can boost speed, scale, and operational efficiency. But that is easier said than done. Businesses need to re-construct the application ground up, which means the entire order management stack should be rewritten from scratch, including key applications like order capture, order execution, product catalog, asset management, user documentation, notifications, and more.
