Digital transformation encompasses both technological and human components. While many initiatives focus on ensuring that a company’s multi-cloud infrastructure is agile enough to meet changing demands around cloud mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and big data, it’s equally important to empower business workers with the modern digital tools they need to be successful today. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can play a vital role on both of these fronts. In fact, 78 percent of CIOs and senior IT leaders are already looking to AI to address complexity,1 and by 2019, 30 percent of IT service desks will utilize machine learning to free up support capacity.2

Companies spend millions of dollars every year on building data warehouses, buying business intelligence (BI) software tools and managing their analytic processes in the hope of gaining consumer insight and winning market share. Yet, many companies fail to realize the full benefits of their technology investments because they are hamstrung by the layers of expertise and the complexity of technology tools needed to integrate various data warehouses and associated tools within their existing analytic environments. Since analysis is only as good as the accessibility, timeliness and accuracy of the information being analyzed, the interoperability of any data warehouse with any analytic environment is essential to achieving insightful, actionable analysis and making better decisions.

Big Data is not a new problem. Companies have always stored large amounts of data—structured like databases, unstructured like documents—in multiple repositories across the enterprise. The most important aspect of big data is not how big it is, or where it should be stored, or how it should be accessed. It’s the efficacy of business intelligence tools to plumb its depths for patterns and trends, to derive insight from it that will give companies competitive advantage in an increasingly challenging business climate. Visualization allows companies to analyze big data in real-time across a variety of sources in order to make better business decisions.
For many years, companies have been building data warehouses to analyze business activity and produce insights for decision makers to act on to improve business performance. These traditional analytical systems are often based on a classic pattern where data from multiple operational systems is captured, cleaned, transformed and integrated before loading it into a data warehouse. Typically, a history of business activity is built up over a number of years allowing organizations to use business intelligence (BI) tools to analyze, compare and report on business performance over time. In addition, subsets of this data are often extracted from data warehouses into data marts that have been optimized for more detailed multi-dimensional analysis.
