The one thing we know about data in 2014 is that it will continue to grow. Terabytes are old news; now we’re hearing about petabytes, zettabytes, and beyond.
So how can you mine maximum value from your rapidly-expanding data?
- Use one tool to analyze it all. Select a flexible business intelligence (BI) solution, which can connect to multiple databases and file formats.
- Play to your natural strengths. The human eye’s ability to quickly detect and understand patterns and anomalies is unsurpassed by technology.
- Free your data. Allow business users to answer questions on the fly while protecting the underlying data. Eliminate the queue for reporting with easy, intuitive, self-service BI.
- Cross the streams. Make sure your BI tool can blend data across multiple data sources to broaden your data view for richer insights.
- Remember: With great power comes great responsibility. Allow IT to manage data architecture, security, and access controls while still providing business users with the insight they need to answer their own questions.
