Revolutionizing Data Warehousing, Analytics, and Reporting: What Lies Ahead I Cloud services Worldwide
In the digital age, data and analytics are crucial for businesses, enabling them to collect, process, and uncover valuable insights to enhance operations and make strategic decisions.
On an operational level, data-driven analyses allow companies to pinpoint inefficiencies, streamline processes, and optimize resource allocation. This translates to improved productivity, reduced costs, and enhanced customer satisfaction.
Moreover, data analytics provides a solid foundation for strategic decision-making. By uncovering trends, patterns, and correlations within data, businesses can forecast market shifts, assess risks, and identify growth opportunities. Data enables proactive rather than reactive strategies, giving organizations a competitive edge in fast-paced markets.
However, harnessing the power of data and analytics necessitates a robust technological framework, skilled personnel, and a commitment to data privacy and security. As organizations continue to recognize the significance of data-driven insights, the synergy between data, analytics, and decision-making will remain a linchpin of success, steering businesses toward innovation and prosperity.
The analytics challenges encountered by companies reveal several primary customer pain points:
Slow Reporting Performance: Many customers need help reporting services' performance and slow reporting speeds, impeding efficient decision-making
Data Source Integration and Automation: Integrating data sources and scheduling automated data refreshes pose challenges, leading to delays and hindering up-to-date insights

Who are Cloud Services?
Сloud Services is a CSP 1-tier cloud-native provider of Azure cloud professional and managed services serving customers in Europe, the UK, and Central Asia. Founded in Ukraine in 2009, it operates offices in Kyiv (Ukraine), Tallinn ( Estonia), and Ljubljana (Slovenia).
The first scaling on the euro markets was during Covid, and the second - was at the beginning of the war in Ukraine in 2022. In 2022, despite the war, Cloud Services has hosted 100+ deep-dive Azure-related technical workshops for blue-chip enterprise customers, mid-size companies, and ISVs and initiated and managed tens of customer pilots using Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Stream Analytics, Event Hub, Apache Spark, and Azure Databricks.
The basic scenarios of deploying Data&Analytics Azure services:
- Build highly scalable and productive data warehouses from scratch
- Migrate from a legacy like SQL Server, SAP IQ, Clickhouse, and others on Azure Synapse Analytics
- Modernize analytics using Azure Synapse and build the reports on Power BI, operationalize integration pipelines, and deploy DevOps
- Consulting for adopting modern Data Warehousing technologies.
Frequently used Azure services in customer architectures are Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Factory, Power BI, Azure Stream Analytics, Event Hub, Azure Key Vault, and others. Partner also actively uses Azure DevOps, various Azure solutions (Azure Monitor, Azure Security Center, Azure Sentinel, Azure Arc), and Microsoft Purview for data governance.
Analytics has always been our top priority due to our keen interest in data. However, with the introduction of Microsoft Fabric, we recognize that this is the opportune moment to shift our focus toward this game-changing and transformative product.
The buzz around Microsoft Fabric is entirely justified, given its many advantages to businesses such as one product, one experience, one architecture, and one business model; every aspect, from networking applications, is meticulously managed by Microsoft, a comprehensive data analytics platform encompassing well-established Azure functionalities, including Azure Data Factory, Data Explorer, and Apache Spark.
There are just a couple of benefits, but much more information will be presented at the NTK conference within two lectures, " Evolution of Cloud Data Warehousing with Microsoft Fabric " and " Intro to Microsoft Fabric, its Components and architecture " by Andrew Dakhov, a Managing Partner in Cloud Services, a technical enthusiast, and a data architect focused on analytics with over 15 years in technology.
If you are a business leader who wants to learn about innovations in data analytics and understand cases, how it was done by others, what results they have, and how technology can help your business get valuable insights, it is crucial to visit both lectures!
We will wait for you and see you soon!
