Data pipelines

Data storage, extraction, and flow are high priorities in today’s telecommunications world, where it seems all information is just a keystroke away. With the prevalence of ever-changing technologies and data being stored in more than one place, it is essential to have tools like data pipelines at hand.

So, what is a data pipeline? While you might have already formed a picture in your head, there are no actual pipes involved. Much like regular pipes, though, data pipelines allow data to flow from A to B. It automates the complex process of extracting, transforming, combining, validating, and loading data, making it considerably more efficient.

What is Alooma?

Alooma, which has been recently acquired by Google Cloud, is a company that provides a data pipeline for your business to give data teams visibility and control. This means it allows you to bring data from your various silos into your data warehouse in real time. Their services also include AI and machine learning, cloud migration, data cleansing, migration and integration, and real-time data ingestion, among other things.

Access through SaaS

Software as a service (SaaS) is one of the three types of cloud computing, the other two being infrastructure as a service and platform as a service (PaaS). Alooma uses SaaS as a software distribution model. To put it simply, SaaS allows customers to access software hosted and operated by a third-party provider over the Internet.

What did Alooma need?

Alooma contacted us to update and do maintenance on its website, which was already up and running. This job was not meant for just any team of developers as it had a couple of peculiarities regarding development: their website was built on JAMstack and used Netlify for deployments.

JAMstack projects use initial programming on client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup. The website used JAMstack because it does not only simplify scaling, but it can also be a security advantage, as well as help reduce loading times. Meanwhile, Netlify is a tool to deploy and manage web projects, offering hosting for static websites, in addition to serverless backend. Alooma chose it because it includes global deployment through seven cloud providers.

How did we help?

We helped Alooma by running maintenance on their site as well as updating it and implementing their design. This included developing new pages in the site and editing existing ones. The Documentation and Mapper pages of their website are an example of this. To do this, our team needed to be skilled in the specific technologies mentioned above. Alooma trusted us to adapt to their requirements and deliver the results they were looking for. Fortunately, we managed to meet all their needs and expectations.
