In today’s data-driven landscape, organizations are exploring various methods to leverage data for business growth and innovation. However, they often encounter challenges such as lengthy implementation times, and high costs with traditional data management approaches. In response, our Data Lake Quick solution based on Apache Iceberg(open table format) offers organizations a pathway to maximize their data assets’ potential. By utilizing AWS native services, our solution facilitates accelerated time-to-insight, improved data security and compliance, proof-of-concept capabilities, and opportunities for continuous improvement and innovation. This case study will delve into how our solution addresses these challenges and enables organizations to achieve their data management objectives.

AWS Deployment Architecture


Accelerated Time-to-Insight:

  • Our solution enables organizations to rapidly deploy a fully functional data lake using AWS native services, reducing the time and effort required for implementation and allowing stakeholders to derive insights from data more quickly.

Enhanced Data Security and Compliance:

  • With features like secure data storage and encryption using AWS KMS, organizations can ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and compliance of their data, mitigating risks and safeguarding sensitive information.

Proof-of-Concept and Evaluation:

  • Our deployment option offers a low-risk environment for organizations to conduct proof-of-concept projects or evaluations, allowing them to assess the feasibility and potential business impact of implementing a data lake before committing to full-scale deployment.

Continuous Improvement and Innovation:

  • With our solution, organizations receive ongoing support tailored to their specific needs through three distinct support tiers, each offering different Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Whether it’s basic support for essential maintenance tasks, expedited assistance for critical issues, or dedicated resources for strategic guidance, our support tiers enable organizations to continuously innovate and drive business growth while ensuring prompt resolution of any challenges they may encounter.

Business Outcomes:

Risk Mitigation and Compliance:

  • Through robust data security features, encryption, and compliance controls, our solution helps organizations mitigate risks associated with data breaches, unauthorized access, and regulatory non-compliance, safeguarding reputation, and ensuring trust among stakeholders.

Accelerated Time-to-Value:

  • By leveraging our pre-configured Quick Start solution, organizations can rapidly deploy a fully functional data lake environment, reducing the time and effort required for implementation and configuration.

Agility and Flexibility:

  • With our solution’s ability to be extended or modified to meet specific organizational requirements, businesses gain agility and flexibility in adapting the data lake environment to evolving needs and use cases. This agility allows organizations to respond to changing business needs, and market conditions.

Cost Savings:

  • The fast implementation of our data lake solution translates to cost savings associated with reduced deployment time and minimal upfront investment in infrastructure setup and configuration. Organizations can avoid lengthy development cycles and associated expenses, achieving a faster return on investment (ROI) and lowering total cost of ownership (TCO).


Architecture Design:

The data lake quickstart solution architecture leverages AWS native services such as Amazon S3, AWS Glue, AWS IAM, AWS KMS and AWS VPC to build a scalable, secure, and cost-effective data lake environment.

Data ingestion, storage, processing are seamlessly integrated to provide end-to-end data management capabilities.

Automated Provisioning and Configuration:

Infrastructure provisioning and configuration are automated using AWS CloudFormation templates, enabling quick deployment and configuration of data lake resources.

Organizations can easily customize and extend the data lake solution to meet specific requirements and use cases.

Data Processing and Analytics:

Data processing workflows are orchestrated using AWS Glue workflow.

Organizations can perform ad-hoc queries, interactive analytics, and complex data transformations to derive actionable insights from the data lake using AWS Athena.


Architectural Flow:

Once the file from the source system is ingested into the raw S3 bucket.

Based on the selected frequency, Glue workflow starts an execution where Glue crawler populates the glue catalogue with the schema and Glue job loads and transforms the data and writes it to the enrich table.

Automated provisioning and configuration of data lake resources are facilitated using AWS CloudFormation templates.

The components in this architecture are encrypted, secured and restricted using AWS KMS, AWS VPC and AWS IAM respectively.

Our data lake solution can be extended and integrated with other AWS services and third-party tools to meet specific business requirements.


Amazon S3: Scalable object storage for data lake storage and archiving.

AWS Glue: Fully managed ETL service for data discovery, cataloguing, and transformation. Iceberg table has been created to access enriched data in AWS Glue catalog.

AWS CloudFormation: Infrastructure-as-code service for automated provisioning and management of AWS resources.

AWS IAM: AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that helps securely control access to AWS resources by managing users, groups, and permissions.

AWS KMS: AWS Key Management Service (KMS) plays a crucial role in ensuring the security and confidentiality of data stored and processed within the data lake environment.

AWS VPC: AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) plays a critical role in providing a secure and isolated network environment for deploying and managing the components of the data lake architecture.


In conclusion, our Data Lake Quickstart solution presents organizations with an efficient approach to harness the power of their data assets. By leveraging features like open table format and Apache Iceberg, our solution enables organizations to swiftly address modern data management challenges. This fosters accelerated time-to-value, enhanced operational efficiency, and improved data security and compliance. We remain committed to guiding organizations on their journey towards data-driven excellence, inspiring them to reimagine the role of data as a strategic asset driving business success.
