Modern Data Platform
Improve business agility and intelligence with our consolidated modern data platform.
All the data you need in one place
Our modern data platform creates a single target for all the data sources in your organisation you wish to derive information from.
We do this using a standard architecture based on data services provided by Azure alongside our breadth of data expertise working with numerous data sources such as SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Couchbase and more. This enables you to continue driving your analytics programme forwards.
Is a modern data platform right for your business?
Are you contending with ever increasing data from multiple sources?
Is your data often siloed and includes unstructured and relational data types?
Do you have a need for increasing levels of business intelligence and data analytics?
Are you lacking the experience or resource to deliver a well architected data platform?
We find that a consolidated data platform can bring benefit to most organisations but with any transformational project we understand that there’s a lot to think about before you take that next step. In our experience we’ve found that a modern data platform tends to be the right fit for businesses struggling with gathering data from multiple sources, resource to manage the data, or increased business intelligence needs.

Due to the nature of the PD Ports business, there are many business-critical applications that must be operational on a true 24*7 basis and as such, the database environments are designed with optimal high availability in mind.
Whilst employing a highly skilled internal technical team, PD Ports recognised that it needed DBA experts on a continuous basis to ensure ongoing environment optimisation and to allow the internal technical team to focus on the business-specific application work.
Achieve data modernisation with N4Stack
So, you know the benefits a consolidated data platform can bring to your organisation but perhaps there simply isn’t enough time, budget, or manpower to get the solution set up. That’s where we come in. Our team of experts typically take a four-step approach to modernising your data platform.
The first step is to conduct visualisation workshops. These take place over a defined period of time and give us a chance to meet your team, identify your project goals, and qualify your data source and data types.
The second step we take is to develop a proof of concept (PoC) whereby we agree a solution for your chosen business area, define a high-level design, develop an Azure solution based on recommended Azure product SKUs, and finally implement and configure the agreed PoC solution.
Once you and your team are happy with the PoC we’ll move into the production phase. During this stage we’ll work with you to agree on additional business areas to fulfil your data scope and build data pipelines for the wider applications and data sources.
Upon successful set up of your modern data platform we’ll be there to give you a helping hand whenever you need. Whether that’s an occasional check in, or a fully managed service whereby we deliver 24*7 maintenance, incident management and support escalation.
Our team of experts are highly experienced in Azure and data management and have helped customers of all different shapes and sizes modernise their IT operations for over 15 years. Our mature service model enables delivery of project consultancy and post implementation operational managed services.
