Big Data Application Assessment
Get Higher Returns, Minimise Risks on Your Big Data Investments
ACHIEVING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF BIG DATA
Whether you already have a big data application in place or are still searching for the right one, how do you develop your strategy for evaluating and optimising its performance? Further, does your current big data application deliver the promised ROI?
Some organisations only have a “data lake” where data is arbitrary and unrefined for search and insightful analysis. Forward-thinking organisations seek out ways to build powerful predictive analytics platforms to search, navigate, and analyse big data to meet complex business demands. With the growing diversity of big data solutions, environments, and configuration techniques, the right assessment can help you to chart out a clear path for choosing and aligning these elements to support your business vision.
PEACE OF MIND AT EVERY STAGE OF YOUR BIG DATA JOURNEY
We’ve enabled hundreds of organisations to find better, faster insights using the Hadoop ecosystem (Cloudera, Hortonworks, Hbase, Hive, Pig); leading search technologies (Solr, Elasticsearch, Amazon Cloudsearch, Microsoft Azure Search); and NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Cassandra, Couchbase, MarkLogic). Our assessment is designed to address the unique requirements at each of your big data maturity milestones, including:
- Readiness assessment – Planning a strategy for leveraging big data or looking for the best-fit application? We will guide you through the big data maze, answer your questions, and help you to define an effective implementation pathway that minimises risks and disruptions to your current operations.
- Big data infrastructure review – A full audit of your existing infrastructure enables you to proactively identify issues, detect trends, and develop actionable plans for business growth. It also includes reviews of your current hardware, system performance, and system governance.
- Big data migration assessment – Thinking of an on-premise, cloud, or hybrid environment for your big data applications? Our findings can help you to make well-informed decisions and select the appropriate technologies for a smooth platform transition.
- Regular health checks and improvement strategy – With fast-changing technologies, continuing to assess, update, and fine tune your big data applications will bring a higher ROI, plus a competitive edge in your market.
- Application integration assessment – Ready to implement the next big data tool? This assessment can help to evaluate and enhance the synergies between your existing and new applications.
A TRANSPARENT, PROVEN BIG DATA APPLICATION ASSESSMENT PROCESS
Led by our experienced technology architects and big data experts, we work closely with your internal teams to:
- Understand your business objectives and user requirements (key goals, metrics, use cases, ROI).
- Thoroughly review your big data infrastructure (sizes, formats, locations, rates-of-change, linguistic properties).
- Define how your data can be enriched and transformed to support your objectives.
- Provide you with recommendations for optimal architectures, enrichment necessities, and technology options.
Many of our big data assessments are conducted during several days on-site and can be fully customised to meet your needs. We will then present a comprehensive report detailing our findings and proposing optimal next steps for enhancing your big data application performance.
