How can you unlock the power of big data and make yours an analytic enterprise?
More organisations than ever are finding they cannot run the kind of business reporting and analytics they need to due to the challenges of rising data volumes and rigid IT systems.
However, a new set of opportunities are emerging. Using big data and powerful analytic platforms, it’s now possible for organisations to free themselves from processing bottlenecks, to save small fortunes by decommissioning legacy database platforms, and to harness the power of real-time and predictive analytics to deliver game-changing business outcomes. In short, turn their companies into analytic enterprises.
Relational databases have long been the standard for the management and analysis of enterprise data. Yet growing data management, competitive and regulatory pressures have pushed traditional relational databases to their limits. Now, new technologies have emerged with economic and business implications that are impossible to ignore.
One solution – Hadoop – has become popular because it provides a cost-effective way for organisations of any size to store and access large volumes of data. However, even Hadoop has its limitations; purpose-built to facilitate certain forms of batch-oriented distributed data processing, it was built on fundamentals which limit its ability to perform analytic processing. Revolutionary software platforms now allow organizations to get the best of both worlds by turning Hadoop into an enterprise-grade relational data warehouse combined with full data science, analytics and blisteringly fast SQL reporting capabilities at any scale.
If you have reached the limits of your analytics and reporting, then attend this event to learn how you can take things to the next level. Hear from leading practitioners how firms are combining modern software and analytical techniques to gain competitive advantage, reclaim hours of internal processing time and meet ever increasing regulatory demands. Learn how you too can ultimately deliver game-changing results today.
