Big Data and Analytics
Big Data has become a buzz word as organizations start to recognize the potential value of large collections of information that either already exist and just need to be integrated, or that are now created from continuous streams of information from applications, IoT devices and through forms of crowdsourcing.
Harnessing Big Data is a challenge. It cannot be addressed simply by trying to employ Apache Hadoop or Spark and hope for the best results. Big Data is tighty connected to the quality of information, to analytics deriving new actionable information from data, and to the accessibility of data in various forms: structured, text, audio, images, video, graphics, geodata, and more. Big Data really is an strategic integration task presenting the challenge of properly analyzing the resulting data lakes to yield insights. Large data sets may exhibit interesting correlations - data analysts have to validate them to verify there is also causation.
As Big Data initiatives start in organizations, it often turns out that data is not really big. It is just hard to capture and analyze. Cyber Vision brings the deep understanding of business requirements and methodologies that is necessary to turn piles of data into Smart Data. Latest technology from the analytic database field will take care of making this also Fast Data, i.e., ad-hoc analytics may be applied interactively. Processes that took weeks before may now be complete in minutes or hours.
Big Data is complex through its characteristics, also known as the eight 'V'. These properties have to be taken into account when Big Data is being ingested, processed, analyzed, stored and explored or visualized.
Cyber Vision employs highly scalable architectures for Big Data platforms to start small while thinking big. Only this way, Big Data will enable Big Insights leading to Big Decisions. Big Data is about not being afraid of large volumes of data, high rates of new incoming data or complex relationships between individual records of different types. Cyber Vision provides you with the highly-scalable, robust base technology, so you can take care of identifying business value and deriving actionable insights.
