Streamatics is an organization that is involved in the processing of data and performing analytics. The organization performs Data Analysis on Petabytes of the data. All this data is received from a large world-wide network of sensors and several similar devices. The flow of data from these devices fluctuates frequently, and this per se is absolutely immeasurable. Processing huge amounts of data with meticulous accuracy and speed, takes a great toll on Streamatic’s on-premise servers. Streamatics has hence decided to migrate its entire data processing engine on Azure’s cloud for easier and faster data ingestion, accompanied with analysis. The resources of the organization are safely accessed via Windows Active Directory. Since the enterprise has primarily commenced deploying Azure SaaS service, the exchange server of organization has been moved to Azure AD, thereby giving employees access to SaaS services. The company currently holds SCOM for managing the entire huge infrastructure.
