Data Foundation – A GCP (Google Cloud Platform) Approach
Legacy Data Warehouse was meant to capture mostly structured data for descriptive BI reporting.
Trends changed to building a data lake to capture every aspect of the business operations.
Data growth from terabytes to petabytes or even exabytes brought the realization of separation of storage and compute, and a modernized data warehouse, where the data warehouse makes it possible to extract insights from all of the data.
Cloud Storage – Data Lake to store data from all aspects of your business
BigQuery – Data Warehouse (Modernized) to collect structure, semi-structured and unstructured data for data mining. Provides aspects such as Scalability, Performance, Security, etc

- Metadata as a service
- Central Catalog
- Simplifies data discovery at any scale
- Offers a unified view of all datasets
- Provides a foundation for data governance
