Big Data

Like the 190+ lottery games across the U.S called “Powerball” or “Mega Millions” the new game in IT is to label each new trend with a vague name!  Big Data is no exception.  If Big Data were called Analytics 3.0 would it be easier to digest?

Customer Challenges

Big Data is a discussion on new ways to structure and mine for data that can be helpful in making decisions in your business.  Whether it is:

  • A need for faster results – To enable a “conversation” with data
  • A desire to do things at a lower cost
  • A need to add more data (including disparate sources) to come up with new insights
  • New, modern applications creating new data, which is then used to improve product/services, and aide in the continued evolution of the application.

Understandably, many smaller companies view Big Data solutions as only for the largest of clients.  To add to the confusion, there is also a misnomer of Hadoop with Big Data…  Hadoop is now synonymous with Big Data for many.  In the early days the only way people knew how to deal with Big Data was by leveraging Hadoop (an open-source software framework for storing and processing big data in a distributed fashion on large clusters of commodity hardware). Deployments were time consuming, and incredibly resource intensive projects.  Fast forward to today, and we have a variety of simple to deploy distributions of Hadoop, Hadoop alternatives, and most importantly, advanced Cloud Analytics solutions.  These cloud solutions have flung open the doors to the smallest clients by enabling them to harness the power of data with as much, or as little, technical knowledge as desired.

Elysian Technology Solutions

Let us help open the doors and unlock the power of information for your business.  Elysian Technology is helping clients every day to create solutions that improve customer satisfaction, increase sales, and implement higher impact marketing campaigns.  We have learned that Big Data and analytic solutions don’t stop by just achieving a faster database, or cheaper Hadoop distribution, you also have to determine how to identify, and transfer that data into the analytic platform.  Once the data is in your analytics platform, we are half way there!  We still need to extract the data and explore ways to turn it into relevant information for the everyday user.  This is where powerful visualization tools become important. Visualization tools allow you to tell a story with the data to your largest audience…non-technical users.  From end to end Cloud based solutions, to point on premise; we can help you make the right choices.
