CASE-STUDY_Data Engineering

Carlsberg Group.

Moving intelligence to the cloud.

Heritage beer brand Carlsberg’s progressive approach to business and brewing has made them a world leader in the sector. Founded in 1874, Carlsberg now has more than 140 brands in its portfolio, which spans core, craft & speciality and alcohol-free brews.

Ascent’s Lisbon-based data engineering team were engaged to help Carlsberg undertake a critical migration from on-premise BI systems to the Azure Cloud, implementing batch and streaming data processes and replacing old SSIS packages with PySpark notebooks. The team also used Databricks to build machine learning models to predict churn and profitability.

Data modelling.

Structure and connect your data optimally for business consumption.

Data modelling helps businesses use data effectively to meet individual, departmental and leadership information needs. However, businesses often struggle to organise and connect their data across different functions.

By building conceptual, logical and physical data models, we help you create a stronger understanding of how your data is best structured, and how your datasets connect together. We use Synapse, Databricks and/or Snowflake as standard to prepare your data for end-user engagement and consumption.

Data ingest.

Layer additional insight into your ecosystem by ingesting data from new internal and external sources.

Effective data ingest is about cost-efficiently collecting and storing data imported from a wide variety of sources, types and schemas into a consistent format in the cloud.

We help you build real time and/or batch data pipelines to bring in data from various sources from public data and paid-for third party or internal systems using cloud-native tools. This allows you to build the analytical insights and AI/ML solutions needed to exploit your data to deliver maximum business value.

Data quality, storage and curation.

Improve the value and usability of your data by increasing its quality, contextual relevance and accessibility.

Limitations in legacy environments and an inconsistent focus on data curation often result in sub-optimal workflows, poor user experiences and an erosion of confidence.

Our experienced engineers optimise the accessibility and quality of your data to rapidly reach its commercial potential. We use cloud-native services to deliver elastic scale, cleaning and modelling your data as efficiently as possible for your consumers.

Analytics pipelines.

Build meaningful outgoing analytics pipelines from data stores that prepare data for analysis and decision-making.

Many organisations reduce data engineering to what they see as its primary function - consuming data into a warehouse from source systems - but this neglects an important part of the engineering lifecycle.

Our data engineers are equally experienced in both data ingestion engineering and analytics engineering: curating data on its way to a Machine Learning model, a Generative AI solution, or business intelligence dashboards to improve performance.
