Data Management and Business Analytics

Data Management

Either someone uses the ‘trendy’ term of Big Data or not, reality is unavoidable. Data, either structured transaction-based, or unstructured from social media or even the uncountable machine-based, like those RFID systems generate, data do grow and will continue to, exponentially.

Big data affords us the opportunity to dig deeper and deeper into the data, peeling back layers to reveal richer insights. The insights we gain from our initial analysis can be explored further, with richer, deeper insights emerging each time. This level of insight can help us develop specific strategies and actions to e.g. cost reductions, time reductions, new product development and optimized offerings, and generally smarter business decision making that drives growth and reduces risks.

But even an enterprise or organization is not yet in the 'Bid' but in the 'on-site application' one, where data are stored across a number of heterogeneous data sources, still in many cases, the value of this enterprise is essentially the value of its data.

So data are extremely important, growing fast and coming from different sources and formats (in PC files, relational databases, data warehouse appliances, legacy mainframe systems or Hadoop's distributed file system), but in order to be useful they must be properly managed before analysis takes place, since decisions can’t be based on bad information.
