In the realm of global humanitarian efforts, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) stands at the forefront, leveraging advanced data solutions to maximize its impact. This presentation explores IRC's journey in adopting a data lakehouse architecture, an innovative method that merges a data lake's flexibility with a data warehouse's management features. We will explore the pivotal role of Azure Databricks in this transformation, illustrating how it has streamlined our data processes and enabled more efficient, impactful humanitarian responses. Key discussion points:

 

  • Architecture Overview Deployment Challenges and Solutions Operational Efficiencies
  • Impact on Humanitarian Efforts Future Scope and Scalability
  • Lessons for Non-Profits

 

This session aims not only to share IRC's experience and achievements with the data lakehouse architecture but also to inspire and guide other non-profit organizations in harnessing the power of data for social good.
