Migrating from on-premise to a modern cloud data platform can be complex, but ultimately makes it easier to streamline operations and improve productivity. Databricks has partnered with leading consulting partners to help you retire legacy infrastructure and adopt a simple and open lakehouse architecture. Collectively, these partners have completed hundreds of migrations from on-premise to Databricks and are equipped to help you reduce the risks associated with data system migrations. Now, you can scale to meet the changing needs of your business without requiring excess capacity or hardware upgrades.

  1. Azure Databricks is a key enabler for helping organizations scale AI and unlock the value of disparate and complex data. To achieve your AI aspirations and uncover insights that inform better decisions, you can migrate your data to a modern, state-of-the-art data platform and turn it into action and value. If you are looking to accelerate data transformation, the Avanade Legacy System Migration can help you quickly move your data from proprietary and expensive legacy systems to the lakehouse to drive operational efficiencies and speed up innovation.
  2. Capgemini's Data Migration Methodology (DMM) uses an industrialized data migration factory to help you streamline data migration to the cloud and Databricks. DMM ensures that the cloud architecture and migration patterns are aligned to your cloud ambitions, while industrial methods, tooling and automation drive high-quality and cost-efficient migration. Furthermore, Capgemini helps you offset the costs of the assessment so you can jumpstart your journey through a comprehensive roadmap, which leverages Capgemini's best-in-class eAPM assessment tool. This provides unparalleled insight into your IT portfolio, addresses gaps in your readiness, and leverages cloud-based services to modernize your landscape so you can save up to 25% once in production.
  3. The ability to migrate and integrate monolithic mainframe-based Cards and Core Banking into modern tech stacks on cloud is critical for retail banks in today's competitive market. Capgemini's solution for migrating Legacy Cards and Core Banking Portfolios on Databricks enables rapid conversion from external source systems and provides a fully configurable and industrialized conversion capability. Leveraging Public Cloud services, this solution provides a cost-efficient conversion platform with predictable time to market. Now, you can rapidly complete ingestion, ease development of ETL jobs, and completely reconcile and validate conversion up to 50% faster.
  4. Celebal Technologies offers proven tools and accelerators to help you migrate from from Hadoop or Snowflake and integrate SAP to the Databricks Lakehouse. Their solution for migrating to Databricks from an on-premise/cloud Hadoop environment addresses the key challenges of scalability, performance, and workload diversity to enable comprehensive analytics. By leveraging the capabilities of the Databricks Lakehouse Platform, they also help leading enterprises with a SAP BW or HANA footprint to optimize their data processing with comprehensive analytics solutions. Lastly, they can help you migrate from Snowflake to Databricks to significantly reduce costs and increase performance, including up to 40% in costs and 60% in time due to automatic schema and data migration.

  5. While SAS has been a dominant player in legacy platforms, the emergence of new technologies has made open-source technologies a desired alternative. The Deloitte SAS Migration Factory provides intelligent code analysis, classification, and conversion tools that take a given set of SAS programs and categorizes and converts them to open source Python, PySpark, or Scala. The Deloitte SAS Migration Factory accelerates migrations to Databricks with improved quality and is made up of three components: Classifier, Reverse Engineer, and Conversion Enabler. This tool, when combined with Deloitte's migration services, remediates the common challenges faced by clients for legacy SAS code into open source code, resulting in improved business ROI and a much faster time to value.
  6. LeapLogic – an Impetus solution – auto-transforms legacy ETL, data warehouse, analytics and Hadoop workloads to modern data infrastructure on Databricks. Impetus offers engineering services to accelerate, optimize, re-architect, and scale on Databricks. This allows 70-90% of legacy code, scripts and business logic to be automatically transformed into production-ready output. Now, your transformation to Databricks will happen faster and more accurately, thanks to the analysis, automation, and validation of LeapLogic.
