The Challenge: How do I modernize the existing IT landscape?

The goal of the workshop was a practical workshop on the topic of "Big Data Storage Systems" for the internal IT department of SEW Eurodrive.

This department faces the challenge of preparing the existing legacy IT for the data requirements of the coming years in the environment, IoT, AI and BigData in general and making it "future-ready".

The Solution: Practice-oriented, multi-day workshop

In consultation with those responsible, a workshop lasting several days was designed to meet the needs. In this workshop, the team was to be introduced to the required knowledge, an applicable methodology, practical examples and a case study, so that the team would then be able to ask the right questions and develop its own suitable solution strategy.

For this purpose, selected technologies and solution architectures were presented in theory and discussed in detail in the first part.

In the second part, methods for the approach as well as evaluation possibilities of different solutions were presented.

In the third part, a detailed case study was developed with the team in order to rehearse the previously gained knowledge and solution strategies on a concrete example.
