The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
New data sources are fueling innovation while stretching the limitations of traditional data management strategies and structures. Data warehouses are giving way to purpose built platforms more capable of meeting the real-time needs of a more demanding end user and the opportunities presented by Big Data. Significant strategy shifts are under way to transform traditional data ecosystems by creating a unified view of the data terrain necessary to support Big Data and real-time needs of innovative enterprises companies.
Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.
In the age of the customer, businesses realize the need to take their big data insights further than they have before, in order to win, serve, and retain their customers. Today’s modern company has more data than ever before and is now looking to derive insights from the data that will help propel it forward. As firms move data analytics to the cloud, there is a new set of challenges and barriers to overcome, but with the help of insights-platforms-as-a-service, companies will be able to innovate with data and drive business forward.

Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.
Big data alone does not guarantee better business decisions. Often that data needs to be moved and transformed so Insight Platforms can discern useful business intelligence. To deliver those results faster than traditional Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) technologies, use Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift. This cloud- native ETL/ELT offering, built specifically for Amazon Redshift, simplifies the process of loading and transforming data and can help reduce your development time.
This white paper will focus on approaches that can help you maximize your investment in Amazon Redshift. Learn how the scalable, cloud- native architecture and fast, secure integrations can benefit your organization, and discover ways this cost- effective solution is designed with cloud computing in mind. In addition, we will explore how Matillion ETL and Amazon Redshift make it possible for you to automate data transformation directly in the data warehouse to deliver analytics and business intelligence (BI
Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later.
Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.
Download this whitepaper to see how advanced technologies such as big data, cloud computing, mobile devices, and enterprise access to in-memory platforms, predictive analytics, and planning software can help CFOs make better and more sophisticated use of data, influence decisions, and take practical, timely action.
IT is in the midst of one of its major transformations. IDC has characterized this paradigm shift as the “third platform,” driven by innovations in cloud, big data, mobility and social technologies. Progressive enterprises are seeking to leverage third-platform technologies to create new business opportunities and competitive differentiation through new products such as Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor and services, new business models and new ways of engaging customers.

In this book, we are going to look at the key trends driving the modernization of data infrastructure. We’ll see how organizations are adapting and flourishing in a data-driven world. For some time, headlines have been around the internet of things (IoT),
big data and data analytics. While these developments are important, the reality is that you cannot take full advantage of them without modernization. We’re going to look at these trends and priorities in detail, then look at the three key drivers of modernization: governance, mobilization and analytics. We’ll also consider the technologies that make up modern data infrastructure including artificial intelligence (AI), flash storage, converged and hyperconverged platforms and software-defined infrastructures. By making sense of data, we make sense of the world. With more data than ever before, we have the tools to turn all that information into intelligent innovation and change the way the world works.
In this playbook, we provide you with a framework to bring big data to your agency. We break down big data into manageable components to help you understand how to make big data a reality at your agency. Our guide will serve as a roadmap for innovation and provide you with step-by-step instructions to deploy big data at your agency.
Businesses that exploit Big Data to improve strategy and execution are distancing themselves from competitors. The Big Data solution from EMC provides market-leading, scale-outing storage, a unified analytics platform, and business process and application development tools. Together, these allow organizations to draw deeper insights and become a more predictive organization.
Forward-looking enterprises know there's more to big data than strong and managing large volumes of information. Big data presents an opportunity to leverage analytics and experiment with all available data to derive value never before possible with traditional business intelligence and data warehouse platforms. Through a modern, big data platform that facilitates self-service and collaborative analytics across all data, organizations become more agile and are able to innovate in new ways.
In this report, Forrester Research recommends that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals working on BI and big data initiatives get the best out of both by designing and integrating them in a flexible data platform.
