The promise of cloud computing is to provide pay-as-you-go pricing and large-scale computing and storage infrastructures that scale on-demand. As Enterprises accelerate their journey to the Cloud to process more and more data, the IT operational (OPEX) costs are skyrocketing, mainly driven by:

  • Increasing AI and machine learning workloads fuelled by more data
  • Need to process and store any type of data to feed AI models with structured and unstructured data
  • Increasing complexity of managing large-scale compute and data platforms on the cloud
  • Cloud provider services to drive adoption and innovation but locks-in customer data and workloads with unforeseen costs at scale
  • Lack of cloud operational expertise to manage and optimize cloud infrastructure and cost
  • Regulations and compliance mandates to retain data for auditability purposes
  • The financially driven to shut down legacy on-prem data centres, to realize immediate cost savings without a clear and cohesive hybrid cloud strategy.
As such, IT departments are struggling to manage their Cloud costs and are re-thinking their approach to a Cloud-first strategy and how to optimize IT budgets by leveraging investments in existing on-prem data centers. CIOs and CDOs are now re-framing their approach by moving to a multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architecture to provide:
A modern data platform that inherently includes a multi-hybrid cloud strategy requires interoperability and security to enable the orchestration of data to the cloud.

Modak Nabu™ is an integrated data engineering software platform that allows enterprises to operate on any cloud provider and manage data from on-prem data sources and applications. Modak Nabu™ empowers enterprises to successfully execute multi and hybrid cloud strategies.
Case Study:


A Top 5 US Healthcare Insurance provider, with 90k+ employees, has adopted a Cloud 3.0 strategy with multi-cloud providers and a hybrid cloud.


The client was struggling in their cloud data migration journey with Legacy ETL tools and on-premises Data Lake. Additionally, they were finding it challenging to control the costs of cloud operations due to a lack of visibility of cloud resource usage. The absence of proactive monitoring and alerting services was leading to cloud resource wastage.

The client faced the following challenges-

  • Manual processes and the absence of automation for data operations
  • Unclear of service level objectives and indicators
  • Dependency on on-prem data lake and ETL tools impacting the speed of data orchestration and migration
  • Higher data processing time with existing infrastructure

After evaluating incumbents, third-party software, and cloud provider tools the company selected Modak Nabu™, a data engineering platform that accelerates the ingestion, profiling, and migration of data to any cloud provider.

Modak Nabu™ accelerated clients’ cloud migration journey and reduced cloud costs by-

  • Automated creation of monitoring dashboards
  • Removing the dependency on on-prem Data Lake and legacy ELT/ETL tools
  • Automation of Data pipelines to accelerate the data orchestration in the cloud
  • Periodically review and monitoring of unused resources
  • Automated restart of services along with RCA
  • Creation of runbooks for every issue which reduces the issue resolution time by 50%

With Modak Nabu™ the enterprise client implemented Cloud 3.0- a Hybrid/Multi-cloud strategy and accelerated the data movement workflow from on-prem to the cloud. Modak Nabu™ optimized cloud operation costs and improved data operations and services.

A Top 5 US Healthcare Insurance provider recognized the following benefits:

  • Cost optimization: Savings of 65% by removing unused resources from cloud providers' infrastructure
  • Real-time Monitoring of all data engineering service
  • Average data processing time was improved by 85% from hours to minutes
  • Eliminated the dependency on legacy ELT/ETL tools
  • Proactive alerting results in quicker issues resolution
  • Saved time and resources by Automated Data operation
  • Resolved 95%+ issues within SLA with SLI and SLO monitoring
