In a recent FedScoop interview, Data Practice Director Shaunak Ashtaputre discussed accelerating innovation through data-led migration. Leveraging AWS, his team found they were no longer required to prioritize the quickest migration time. Instead, using a data-led approach, they focused on maximizing data value while minimizing the time to transform that data.

In the interview, he recalls a recent data platform modernization project. Addressing mismatched tooling and services, Karsun added capabilities as part of the data-led migration process. This included enhancing the centralized data lake, consolidating data through newly created pipelines and establishing quality baselines. Using automated data recipes, the new platform reduced the time to prepare data. This reduced the lead time from weeks to hours. While improving data latency, the team also transformed the process from a batch approach to a fully integrated analytics platform with transparent lineage, models and recipes. The solution was end to end, from ingest to dashboard.

Optimizing with Cloud Runways

Key to the team’s success was Cloud Runways, Karsun’s answer to complex data-led migration modernization projects. These toolkits accelerate cloud migration through fit-to-purpose transformation playbooks. These enable incremental migrations which adapt to unique customer requirements and constraints.

Karsun begins by building a holistic view by determining the agency’s intended approach to the cloud and data ecosystem. Using a Data-Led Migration Runway, the team assesses the existing integration landscape and identifies future needs. This includes understanding the needs of the analytics users of that data. Next, the team uses Karsun’s proprietary multi-criteria decision support framework to perform a robust assessment of available solution providers. These include vital characteristics such as interoperability, flexibility, SLAs and security to optimize provider selection.

As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner with a Migration Competency, its customers may also utilize Karsun’s access to AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP) resources. This program packages best practices, tools, expertise, financial incentives, and the AWS Partner Network (APN) to simplify cloud adoption. Supporting customers investigating migration solutions, these financial incentives subsidize the three key steps in the migration process (Assess, Mobilize, and Migrate and Modernize). When applicable, Karsun implements these financial incentives as part of its Cloud Runways toolkit.

For those new to complex data migration projects, the Karsun Innovation Center also offers Immersion Days. In these workshops, Karsun cloud experts introduce customers and colleagues to enhance their practice. Additional innovation initiatives are driven through employee-centric Solution, DevSecOps, Lean, Development and Data practice areas. To get started, visit Karsun’s AWS Data-Led Migration Solution.
