Slalom and Databricks Recent Customer Success

The digital health division of a leading biotechnology company had a need to transform their legacy data platform. Used to manage research, data publication, and collaboration among real-world research networks involving neurodegenerative diseases. The data platform transformation would introduce a robust and modular system to ingest, validate, and harmonize data in a variety of formats.  The solution served as a unified analytics platform enabling application developers, data engineers, and algorithm designers to collaborate.

“We were tasked to leverage Databricks to its full potential” said Satya Kamarajuggada, Director, Boston Build Center at Slalom. With close coordination among Databricks partner solution architects, “The solution design responded and adapted to updates released to General Availability hot-off-the-press” said Siddharth Thiruvalluvan, Solution Architect, NYC Data & Analytics at Slalom, ensuring the most contemporary rendition of the lakehouse was delivered.

A recent Foundry report that surveys 400+ IT Leaders on the state of the data stack finds that two-thirds (66%) are using a data lakehouse, and 84% of those who aren’t; are likely to consider doing so. To this end, the delivery team packaged lessons learned to develop the novel solution accelerator.

Slalom’s Partner of the Year Award showcases the success of the shared vision Slalom and Databricks have to accelerate science, enabling life science organizations to build best-in-class analytics environments, transforming business and lives.
