Kepler Cheuvreux streamlined their architecture into just Materialize and Kafka, removing Postgres replicas. With timely data being vital to their business, they replaced batch jobs with streaming workloads. They also enabled real-time alerting and dashboarding in Metabase and Grafana, having Materialize serve as the underlying source of information.
With Materialize, Datalot removed load from their existing SQL database. From a cost-savings perspective, using standard SQL allowed more people at Datalot to participate in the development process without having to hire additional support. From a tactical perspective, Datalot can now take the same analytics that previously were embedded in reports, and use them to notify people the moment something becomes an issue, rather than spending time looking through a report or dashboard.
