What is Big Data AND Analytics?

Big Data can be high volume, fast-moving, highly complex and often arrives from multiple disparate sources. Many businesses are capturing, creating and storing vast amounts of data.

Once ingested, is your data being cleansed, transformed and processed? Are you indexing, analysing and visualising to gain competitive market advantage?

Requirements are changing. While batch processes are still being used, many businesses are witnessing the benefits of perpetually live systems, with real time ingestion and analysis. This opens opportunities for smarter, quicker data-driven decisions.

When working with Big Data, using traditional systems can lead to high operational costs, data silos and low performance.

To achieve the most from your Big Data, you need a highly available, performant and scalable system. Your data could be on-premise, in the cloud or you may be looking to transition. Your data must be easily accessible, efficiently stored and secure - ready to be analysed when required. Whatever your business needs, our Big Data & Analytics services can help.

Many businesses are already restructuring operating models and technology architecture to exploit data opportunities. Don’t be left behind.

Advisory

Big Data is an all-encompassing term, signifying different concepts depending on the company. Each organisation has unique requirements, customers, processes and goals. The IT landscape is fraught with buzzwords and jargon to understand before embarking on your Data journey.

Not receiving advice you trust can have detrimental consequences - decision standstill leading to substantial costs, misunderstanding giving rise to substandard solutions and troubled relationships.

With the correct advice, you will gain a clearer picture of where your business sits and the next steps in your Big Data journey. We want you to understand Big Data, the problems which arise, what this means for you and how to mitigate and remedy these issues.

Whether you're a start-up, or multi-national business; our technical knowledge and consultancy can be used to advise within your existing delivery functions, or help establish a new capability. Our Big Data specialists can facilitate adhoc discussions, workshops or continuous involvement to provide the decision makers and board members the level of detailed understanding required to move forward.

Strategy

Many thought leaders can see the vision for their organisation or department, but find it difficult to make it a reality. You must have a strong Big Data strategy - aligning with, and supporting, your organisation’s business strategy - to move forward. Without this, your business and Big Data goals will lack cohesion, leading to missed business opportunities, unrealised future growth and reduced competitive advantage.

By combining people, process, state-of-the-art architecture and rapidly evolving technologies tailored to your organisation, you can make smart strategic and data-driven decisions. With the right way forward, you can realise substantial benefits including lower operating costs, more efficient risk management, the identification of new growth opportunities and an overall reduction in your time-to-market.

Our people have significant experience working collaboratively in complex, large-scale IT programmes. If you’d like strategic use of Big Data to be a component in your future business strategy, we can help you. Work with us and your data capabilities will be clearly defined, well understood, measurable and demonstrable to senior stakeholders.

Architecture

You may find you're tied down by costly and bulky legacy systems which often can't cope with your performance, scalability or availability requirements. To escape these well-known problems, there are an overwhelming choice of technologies. Which are the most ideal for your specific use cases? Without the correct technology choices and properly planned architecture, you can experience slow and expensive systems which can't evolve with your future business goals.

Whether you are beginning your data journey, or are part-way through, our expertise and experience can help you integrate data sources, create efficient and effective ingestion pipelines, design data platforms, highlight any pressure points in your current architecture and help you improve your ROI through data. Our systems also include practical metrics, logging, security and governance.

We are a vendor agnostic company, ensuring we create data solutions which best help your unique business and technical requirements. We’ll help you avoid common pitfalls and issues so that you can leverage your data to deliver actionable insights for your business.

Engineering

The Big Data technology landscape continues to grow and expand, resulting in an overwhelming choice of tools and techniques. If implemented incorrectly, they bring increased operational complexity, escalating technical debt and severe costs over time. We also see time and time again that businesses struggle to find and retain members with the specialised sought-after skills required for Big Data engineers.

The utilisation of best-of-breed Big Data technologies brings significant cost advantages when working with large amounts of data. Creating batch or real-time ingestion pipelines, data storage and access techniques enables accelerated time-to-market and more economically viable data-driven business decisions.

We bring real-world experience of not only designing but also implementing successful Big Data solutions, both from the ground-up and at enterprise scale. We rapidly identify and mobilise a specialised and focussed development team, delivering solutions within your required timeframes and pivoting to meet your needs as they change.

Management and Governance

Your Big Data solution is not complete without security and governance in place. Recent industry drives ensure Big Data solutions include powerful security and data management components. Not only does this include security of data at rest and in motion, it also encompasses data management processes such as detailed data lifecycle planning, retention policies and disaster recovery solutions.

If these concepts aren’t translated into action, organisations could be faced with compromised system integrity and substantial costs. Without proper data governance, data could become lost, untracked, duplicated - a logistical nightmare with dire consequences if not tackled. Accessing accurate, up to date and governed data is necessary to ensure you stay on top of new regulations and ahead of your competition.

Security is at the heart of everything we do. Our team helps select, optimise and deploy reporting and logging systems which deliver effective authentication, authorisation and auditing. We can arrange discussions with our Cyber Security practice for full coverage of your security and governance frameworks.
