Are you ready to discover how one of the world's leading tech giants is transforming its data analytics to stay ahead of the curve? Intel IT's latest white paper reveals an inside look at the successful migration of Intel's largest business unit's enterprise data analytics to the cloud—a move that is setting the stage for an exciting future of innovation and efficiency.

As Intel ventures further into the realm of foundry services and software development, the demand for a robust, high-performing data platform has never been greater. The foundation of this data-driven shift lies in the intelligent insights gathered from various business activities, enabling Intel to make rapid, informed decisions.

The heart of this transformation is a cloud-based data analytics platform, constructed on Databricks. This revolutionary platform isn't just about data storage; it's a dynamic ecosystem that includes:

  • Sandbox features for integrated data analysis
  • Templates for data ingestion and transformation that can be used time and again
  • Simplified workflows for AI and machine learning
  • Scalability that adjusts on the fly, coupled with unmatched performance
"Intel IT's strategic move to the cloud has been a transformative step for our organization, and Databricks has been a cornerstone of that transition. By migrating our data and analytics workloads with Databricks, we've established a robust, connected data foundation that has streamlined our operations and significantly reduced infrastructure costs. The agility of Databricks' platform has empowered us to respond to business requests with unprecedented speed and efficiency, driving a faster turnaround for data loads and analytics. This has not only increased our operational efficiency but has also accelerated our innovation trajectory, ensuring that we remain at the leading edge of technological advancement. Databricks has enabled us to realize the full potential of cloud computing, turning data into a powerful asset for Intel's sustained growth and competitive advantage."
— Eric Messenger, Director of Sales and Marketing Data and Analytics

Running on the powerful Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and leveraging Databricks' optimized data capabilities, this platform isn't just a step forward—it's a leap into the future. It harnesses Intel's data for peak performance optimization and opens doors to the world of machine learning and generative AI.

The results? For the initial business unit, they have seen a staggering 65% cut in data processing time, 58% fewer job failures, and a 50% drop in user issues. These are more than just numbers; they're proof of a brighter, more efficient future. The Databricks lakehouse architecture demonstrated significant cost savings and a 6.7x speed increase on a standard industry benchmark test, using advanced processors and an optimized query engine, with no additional code changes required. These improvements also deliver faster insights and are reflected in real-world production environments.
