Automated Data Ingestion

Ingest data faster using open-source tools

Banks and financial institutions gather data from multiple sources in various formats. This data is essential to customize product offerings, enhance customer service, and ensure complete account management. But, organizations rely on ETL tools to ingest large volumes of data to unlock the value of these insights from the cloud data warehouse. These tools are often expensive and take time for data ingestion.

What if there was a faster, easier, and more cost-effective way to ingest and orchestrate data in your data warehouse?

Virtusa’s Automated Data Ingestion is a cost-effective way for banks and financial institutions to cut down on the time it takes to ingest large volumes of data from disparate sources and formats, from months to days or weeks.  

Key benefits


Our framework drives automated metadata-based ingestion by creating centralized metadata sources, targets, and mappings. Through electronic intake and data pipeline orchestration, banks and financial services institutions can:

  • Reduce costs by scaling back or eliminating ETL tools for data ingestion
  • Decrease the reliance on architect teams for data pipeline development and analytics
  • Ingest and organize data at an accelerated pace 
  • Validate and monitor data in production
  • Enhance data visualizations
