Modernizing Data and Analytics Infrastructure of Major Sporting Goods Retailer

Case Studies | Data Platforming & Integration


A $1B sporting goods retailer required performance and functionality in the cloud to match or exceed what they experienced on premise with Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) Appliances, and at a lowered annual cost.


  • Current state and future state possibilities were fleshed out through a Workshop designed to explore the historical factors that influenced the legacy and their significance going forward. Gained insights helped determine the feasibility of various technologies.
  • Performed POC to prove out the future state technologies identified during the Workshop. Clearly defined success criteria allowed the validation of Snowflake, Matillion, and Microstrategy Cloud.
  • Migrated legacy data warehouse ecosystem onto the future state technology stack. Using an Agile framework based on sprints, a custom migration approach was developed that minimized risk and maximized returns.


Infrastructure was built with Best Practices covering data modeling, ETL design patterns, and Snowflake Operational Excellence. This resulted in a more sustainable system based on consistency, standardization, and performance.
