Big data is a big name with big value, and that’s why companies are leveraging big data technologies for innovation and business outcomes.
HP Enterprise Services has been quick to realize the potential that big data offers, and has reportedly introduced a new information management and analytics (IM&A) service that will help clients gain increased value from big data assets and in the process drive new revenue opportunities.
A global research commissioned by HP indicated that many organizations lacked the expertise and were unable to devise a cohesive strategy to harness big data properly and gain actionable insight from it.
This was rather unfortunate, as with greater insight, there was tremendous scope to improve and transform enterprise.
This is where HP Enterprise Services claims that its new big data discovery experience can play an important role in allowing clients to unlock the value in big data, understand it, explore different technologies to experience insights from such data, identify the core parameters for success, and more importantly, accelerate the development of an information strategy.
Moreover, as part of the HP big data discovery experience, clients can assess current and future requirements by creating a roadmap based on the discovery of key insights.
The HP big data discovery experience supports a low-risk, rapid path, and drives new revenue opportunities, improving efficiency by optimizing services and lowering cost. It also ensures compliance in real time and supports client efforts to detect and prevent fraud.
All this can be achieved without clients making an initial investment for skilled resources, software and hardware.
This Platform-as-a-Service delivery approach leverages a variety of HP technologies, open source frameworks and partners specializing in analytics.
"HP's approach brings business and IT together from the beginning to help clients shorten the time to start a Big Data initiative and discover new business insight to make better and quicker decisions," said Markus Ruff, vice president of information management and analytics, HP Enterprise Services.
A big data solution is a significant investment of time and money for any organization; to what extent HP’s new analytics service will make that investment worthwhile remains to be seen.
