Data Platforms offer tremendous promise to an organisation.
Data Platforms on the cloud offer tremendous promise to an organisation, through the possibility of immense storage, analysis of vast amounts of data, agility and responsiveness and by providing practically infinite scalability for machine learning workloads.
Using Data Platforms
Data Platforms offer a compelling alternative, switching focus to solving business challenges by having the data to drive the insight and plot a course to the solution.
Born-digital companies have demonstrated how to bypass legacy data systems and leverage cloud scale data processing and machine learning to drive insight into all facets of their business.
Data Platforms have features that can be used to provide intelligence that goes way beyond traditional reporting solutions. Once these features become available and their impact is identified, data engineers can harness their power for additional insight applications resulting in fundamental changes to how you operate.
What to do with data and how to leverage it best faces competing demands from across your organisation.
