How will you turn your data into a competitive advantage?
It’s estimated that we now produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. The ability to capture, measure and analyze the tremendous volume of data generated through everything from ecommerce to the sequencing of the human genome is transforming not only business, but also our world. Every business can benefit from leveraging data to understand and improve business insights and outcomes - but there is also no shortage of associated challenges. How do you capture and store all your data, and what is the best way to make sense of it all?
With the right suite of tools and a clear plan, you can turn your data into business intelligence, and provide your customers with what they need, when they need it. A wealth of consolidated data can provide invaluable insight into your customers’ requirements, internal operational analysis and a clear vision for where to drive your business for maximum benefit to all. When our customers talk to us about big data, they are looking for the tools and processes they need to support advanced analytics: systems for storing and retrieving data, network and processing power to support billions of database queries, and solid backup and recovery plans in case anything goes wrong. With a secure infrastructure to protect against data theft and processes and people to make it all hum smoothly, you can focus your energy on turning raw data into insight.
New tools and the impact of big data analysis.
Much has been written lately about the benefit of Hadoop and noSQL based databases. These technologies are beginning to have a major impact on many enterprises as people look for new ways to analyze the huge amount of data that continues to be amassed by the “big data” proponents.
