Emancipating Big Data: Analytics Via the Cloud – A Guest Commentary in All Analytics

Posted by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Emancipating Big Data: Analytics Via the Cloud – A Guest Commentary in All Analytics

27th April

I’ve long believed that we wouldn’t be talking about “Big Data” if it wasn’t for the ability of today’s cloud-based services to enable us to capture, store, analyze, and share the insights from the data more cost-effectively today than ever before. Yet, most organizations are still facing serious challenges trying to unlock the escalating volumes and variety of data being generated by social media, the Internet of Things (IoT), and other technological developments despite the rapid advancements in data analytics and business intelligence (BI).

Organizations of all sizes across an assortment of industries are using a growing set of cloud analytics solutions to address their Big Data, business intelligence (BI) and data integration challenges, as I heard first-hand at the recent THINKstrategies’ second annual Cloud Analytics Summit, which I had the privilege of hosting. Escalating competitive pressures and customer expectations are forcing organizations to find new ways to tap internal and external data sources to achieve their business goals. They must also better understand how they compare and contrast with their peers from a performance standpoint. This means using key performance indicators (KPIs) to benchmark their success.

Using Cloud Analytics to Corral Big Data – Guest Blogpost in E-Commerce Times

Posted by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Using Cloud Analytics to Corral Big Data – Guest Blogpost in E-Commerce Times

13th April

Strategic Big Data and Actionable Analytics are two of the Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2013, according to Gartner. Yet only 12 percent have a big data strategy that governs their daily operations, a recent survey of 339 data management professionals by SAS and SourceMedia found.

In my view, this gap is the result of years of unfulfilled promises from a previous generation of business intelligence and data integration vendors who failed to provide organizations of all sizes with easy-to-use solutions to address their escalating needs. That was then. Today the number of tools available to make sense of Big Data is only growing, and that’s a good thing, because the need is deep.
