Four months into the project, the architecture was completed and the intent fairly well defined but data ingestion was overly complex. And there were leaking elements when reconciling Curated and Reporting layers with RAW, and inconclusive root cause.
The previous consultancy had adequately built a foundation for the data lake leveraging Azure and Databricks, but there were recurring complications ingesting and mapping data, and consequently their contract severed. Additionally, the internal supporting data engineers were new to agile principles, and shared resources across other projects outside of this initiative. The team did not have a product owner, but had a PMP certified project manager playing the role of Scrum Master.
Ippon was contracted for project rehabilitation. We would have until the end of the year, or just under four months, to audit the current situation, possibly design and execute a new destination state, support successful data ingestion of 7 key sources, while training the surrounding team and improving their use of agile methodology.
