Encrypting and Data Masking
The customer, a Fortune 50 company in the Telecom sector, developed a legacy custom data pipeline that performed format-preserving encryption and data masking. The pipeline extracted data from Teradata to HDFS, performed transformations, and loaded the results back into Teradata on a daily basis. This pipeline, built by a third-party service, was operationally unstable and required constant, costly intervention to keep it running.
CDAP value proposition(s)
The self-service, code-free interface allowed the in-house team to reproduce and replace the existing pipeline.
The new process performed the extraction, encryption, masking, and reload to and from Teradata in-flight.
It created a copy of the data on HDFS so the team could run complex ad-hoc queries using Hive.
