As we headed into 2016, Information Week had ten predictions for Big Data. Their list included the rise of the Chief Data Officer, the coming of the data-as-a-service business model, and the ability to get real-time insights from data. Looking back at 2016, we saw many of these predictions come true with what some of Attunity’s customers did with their Big Data.

Looking back at 2016, we saw many of these predictions come true with what some of Attunity’s customers did with their Big Data. Heres a sampling:
|To take their business intelligence (BI) to the next level, Fanatics, the world’s most-licensed sports retailer, knew they had to find a better way to store and analyze their data. Using a two-pronged strategy that included Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Attunity CloudBeam, they were able to migrate about 100 terabytes of data coming from five different applications quickly and easily into a data lake on the Amazon Cloud to perform analytics.

|A major computer manufacturer is using Attunity Visibility to improve data lifecycle management. Their IT team manages a large-scale enterprise data warehouse (EDW) from Teradata®, with 10,000 end users supporting more than 300 terabytes of data and handling more than 1 billion queries a month. In their prior IT environment, the application DBA team was manually writing custom queries against logs to diagnose the sources of problematic workloads and the trends related to specific users and applications activity. These tasks were necessary, but complex, time-consuming and resource constraining, which prompted them to search for a better, more automated solution. Using Attunity Visibility, they can quickly identify users, applications and the associated data related to problematic workloads. This capability enables them to diagnose issues faster and respond to the business in a timelier manner. It is also saving them 30-50 percent of time previously spent to manually write custom queries against logs to find the needed answers. Read the case study.|
