Organisations are running into growing volumes of Big Data, which can become very costly and about as easy to manage as herding elephants! There’s constant pressure on organisations to make better and faster decisions and it’s important that data is easily manageable so that it’s providing real value to the business.
Data Scientists and business innovators of all types often want to test an idea with real data. And often they wait on DBAs who must wait on developers to write the necessary code for data integration. When the data set is finally ready, it often remains out of sync thanks to duplicative update processes.
Today Big Data integration gets a little easier for all the non-coders.
We all know that Data Lakes run the risk of becoming swamps. Without balanced processes for managing and tracking data, enterprises can fail to extract any real value from Hadoop. In fact, things can get downright muddy.
With this challenge in mind, we are particularly pleased today to announce Attunity Visibility 7.0 software, which extends data usage analytics and monitoring to the data lake so that you can keep your data ecosystem clear and healthy.
Earlier this year, a Gartner survey was a bit conservative on Hadoop adoption. But from our discussions in Seattle, what we heard is that enterprises foresee Hadoop as an integral component of their data architectures.
Strata + Hadoop 2015 brings together technology masters next week in New York to consider the future of data and machines. It is a tricky subject. Ubiquitous data collection and ever-smarter machines can make us all feel grim and dumb. But there is room to be light-hearted and intelligent. Here are three big show themes that underscore how data and software will improve how we live, work and play.
Big Data has changed the way that we use and manage data. With more data than ever before in higher velocities from more sources across the organisation, enterprises simply can’t afford to miss business opportunities due to time spent “data wrangling” for useful nuggets in their data.
Many enterprises have outgrown the traditional Operational Data Store (ODS) and instead are looking for a new way forward.
We can help.
IT is faced with enormous challenges in delivering data to the enterprise. Data is growing exponentially while IT budgets are staying flat. It’s nearly impossible to invest in infrastructure at the same rate of data growth. The lines of business (LOBs) expect the right data at the right place at the right time so that they can extract value from the data as quickly as possible. In this virtual series, you’ll learn how to pinpoint the best combination of hardware, software, and services for each step of the way. And you’ll leave armed with ideas and vital information for building an impactful big data and analytics game plan.
The Omni Parker House in downtown Boston has been home to some great stories. Charles Dickens gave his first American reading of A Christmas Carol there in 1867, and Jack Kennedy proposed to Jackie O at Table #40 in Parker’s Restaurant in 1953.
Yesterday Sales Director David France and I were there to share the Attunity story with CIOs, CTOs and other local tech decision makers at the CIOarena event.
