My major contribution was in the area of data warehousing and pipelines, so the major tasks were:

  • developing python-based data import / export microservices
  • deployment of those microservices in the cloud based infrastructure of the client
  • safe import of the third party providers data into the clients data warehousing and pipeline
  • enabling access to the data for the BI-team
  • adapting existing BI solutions into the python based microservices

The further details are regulated by the NDA.
