Revolutionizing Banking with Cloud-Native Data Warehousing


Our client, a prominent Swedish bank, is widely recognized for its forward-thinking approach to digital solutions. As part of their commitment to staying at the forefront of the industry, the bank embarked on a transformative journey to modernize its data infrastructure. With numerous core banking applications and data originating from over 20 diverse sources, the need for a cutting-edge, scalable, and efficient Data Warehouse (DWH) solution became evident. To achieve this ambitious goal, the bank entrusted our technical team with the critical task of designing and implementing a cloud-native Data Warehouse tailored to meet their unique requirements.


The bank faced several challenges in their endeavor to revolutionize their data infrastructure:

Diverse Data Sources: Data from various core banking applications, customer interactions, transactions, and other sources were distributed across over 20 different platforms, leading to fragmented data silos that hindered a unified view of their operations.

Scalability and Efficiency: As a leading financial institution, the bank had to manage massive volumes of data and ensure that the new DWH solution could scale effortlessly to accommodate future growth while delivering optimal performance.

Data Integration and Transformation: Integrating and transforming data from a multitude of sources into a cohesive and structured format presented significant complexity and required a sophisticated approach.


To meet the banking client's challenges head-on, our expert team devised a comprehensive and modern cloud-native Data Warehouse solution. The key components of our solution include:

Azure Cloud Platform: Leveraging the power and flexibility of Microsoft Azure, we designed a cloud-native architecture that ensured scalability, cost-efficiency, and high availability for the bank's data infrastructure.

Data Ingestion and Unification: We implemented a robust data ingestion pipeline to seamlessly collect data from various core banking applications and diverse sources. This pipeline facilitated the unification of data into a centralized Data Lake, enabling a holistic view of the bank's operations.


Data Vault-Based Transformations: Employing the Data Vault 2.0 methodology, we developed a solid foundation for data transformation. This approach allowed for agile and scalable data model changes while maintaining data integrity and providing historical tracking of data changes.

Advanced Components - DBT and Snowflake: Utilizing the power of dbt (particularly dbtvault component) and Snowflake data warehouse, we implemented sophisticated data transformations and analytics workflows. This enabled efficient data processing and analytics, empowering the bank to derive actionable insights from their data.

Advanced Data Visualization: We integrated Power BI for advanced data visualization, empowering the bank's stakeholders to explore, analyze, and interpret data through interactive dashboards and reports in real-time.


The implementation of our cloud-native Data Warehouse solution brought substantial benefits to our client:

Unified Data Insights: The centralized Data Lake and robust data integration allowed the bank to gain a unified and comprehensive view of their operations, customers, and market trends.

Scalability and Efficiency: The cloud-native architecture ensured that the Data Warehouse solution could effortlessly scale to meet the bank's evolving data needs without compromising on performance.

Future-Ready Infrastructure: Our solution provided the bank with a modern, flexible, and agile data infrastructure that could adapt to emerging technologies and changing business requirements.

By revolutionizing their data infrastructure with our cloud-native Data Warehousing solution, the bank has positioned itself at the forefront of innovation in the banking industry, setting the stage for continued growth and success in the digital era.
