Building a cloud data platform for Galapagos


Cloud Data Platform Galapagos


Galapagos is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative medicines that will improve people's lives. In order to meet the internal need for market intelligence, correct ant timely reporting and forecasting, Galapagos was looking for a partner who could help with the implementation of a cloud platform for data and business analytics.

Big Industries helped Galapagos with the design and setup of a Data Lake on AWS and the building of data pipelines for Qlik dashboards. The project consisted of;

  • Setup S3 for storage
  • Build data pipelines using Glue as ETL service and Spark for data transformation
  • Setup the connection between Athena & Qlik
  • Use Athena's serverless service as interactive query service for data analysis using      standard SQL
  • Deployment automation with AWS Cloud Formation, Ansible and Terraform


By building this data platform, Galapagos can make optimal use of their data for supporting their business plans, KPI's and objectives.
