Modern analytics made easy with new Redshift, S3 migration tools

Editor's note: This blog takes a closer look at some of the recently announced BigQuery product innovations and deepened partnerships that are helping enterprises fast-track their migration to BigQuery.
In the past 40 years, the data warehouse has gone through many transformations, driven by business needs and fueled by technological advancements. Data warehouses have transformed from operational reporting and ad-hoc reporting to today’s real-time, predictive analytics. But growing advanced analytics needs, and the need for reduced operational expenses, mean these legacy data warehouses are no longer a long-term solution. We hear from customers around the globe that they’re migrating to Google Cloud to overcome their IT hurdles and quickly modernize their analytics strategy.
Organizations are unlocking faster, actionable insights by migrating to BigQuery, Google’s cloud-native, enterprise data warehouse. We’re also streamlining customer migrations to BigQuery with the recently announced general availability of our Redshift and S3 migration tools.
Financial services company KeyBank is taking advantage of these tools. “We are modernizing our data analytics strategy by migrating from an on-premises data warehouse to Google's cloud-native data warehouse, BigQuery,” says Michael Onders, chief data officer at KeyBank. “This transformation will help us scale our compute and storage needs seamlessly and lower our overall total cost of ownership. Google Cloud's smart analytics platform will give us access to a broad ecosystem of data transformation tools and advanced machine learning tools so that we can easily generate predictive insights and unlock new findings from our data." 
With the recently announced general availability of the Redshift to BigQuery and S3 to BigQuery migration services, you can now easily move data from these legacy environments right into BigQuery. Redshift and S3 migration services join the Teradata service that’s already available. VPC support is included in the Redshift migration service. In addition, general availability of the DTS-based S3 Loader allows you to move data from S3 seamlessly to Google Cloud.  

Better together with partners

At Google Cloud, we are also collaborating with tech partners to expedite data warehouse migrations. Our tech partners can help you migrate without having to rewrite queries. You can find the partner that’s right for your migration and decide whether to convert incoming requests into BigQuery dialect on the fly or just once. 
In addition to these tech partners, we have partnered with system integrators that have supported many customers in their migration journeys. Close ties and deep investments in our partner ecosystem have helped us deliver the foundational support needed for organizations to fast-track their migration journeys. Wipro, Infosys, Accenture, and other system integrators have built end-to-end migration programs. 
We’ve built three main pillars in our system integrator partnerships:  
  1. Strategic alignment: Our systems integrators have dedicated teams committed to define and execute against a joint business plan with Google Cloud. 
  2. Expertise: Global system integrators (GSIs) have built dedicated Google Cloud practices with Centers of Excellence around data and analytics with certified Google Cloud resources, and expertise in building accelerators for Google Cloud-native solution architectures across many use cases. Examples include the Accenture Data Studio for Google Cloud, Infosys Migration Workbench (MWB), Wipro’s GCP Data and Insights Migration Studio, and other accelerators across our GSI ecosystem. Each of them brings unique strengths and capabilities and the ability to deliver globally.
  3. Delivery: GSI partner solutions are validated for alignment with our solution plays and technology partners we recommend. 
We’ve heard from one of our key systems integrators, Wipro Limited, about their clients’ use of Google Cloud to simplify data warehouse migrations and get started easily with advanced analytics and other features.
“Wipro partners with its clients to transform them into intelligent enterprises,” says Jayant Prabhu, Vice President and Global Head, Data, Analytics and AI. “BigQuery enables our customers to jump-start their modern analytics journey while lowering their total cost of ownership (TCO). BigQuery’s ability to scale seamlessly and simplify machine learning allows us to implement new intelligent analytics solutions for smarter decision making. Furthermore, these benefits come with zero operational overhead, thus helping us focus on making enterprises intelligent.”
Our continued investment in capabilities that help streamline data warehouse migrations to BigQuery is helping enterprises quickly unlock IT innovation.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them. For further information on how to install the add-ons functionality and specific add-ons for a domain, OU, o
