Technologies used - Amazon AWS

In our technology stack, we employ AWS services to create a robust framework for data validation and continuous monitoring of data streams originating from IoT hubs in the cloud. Key components of this framework include Lambda, Kinesis Streams, and S3. These technologies are pivotal in upholding data integrity and promptly alerting relevant teams to any network issues.

For seamless integration with third-party systems hosted on AWS, we rely on a set of AWS services, namely SNS, SQS, and Lambda. This integration process encompasses client asset registration, mapping, configuration, and issue tracking system updates. Leveraging these AWS technologies, we establish efficient communication between systems, ensuring data consistency and synchronization.

Our data platform testing framework relies on AWS services, including Athena, Glue, and S3. The Glue crawler is used to catalog data from source tables into Athena, enabling data querying and processing to validate against destination table data. This framework proves invaluable for verifying data completeness, especially when dealing with client data already residing in the AWS Delta Lake.

Partner solutions
