In this session, we will delve into the journey of a leading European retail giant, Schwarz Group, as it transitions from a standard Databricks deployment to the advanced capabilities of Unity Catalog.

We'll share insights on the planning, execution, and management of this transition, highlighting key considerations such as maintaining data integrity, ensuring continuous operational flow, and adapting to Unity Catalog's enhanced security and governance features. Attendees will gain valuable lessons from our real-world experience, applicable strategies for similar migrations, and understanding the benefits such a transition brings to large, dynamic organizations.
