Big Data, Analytics Systems | Auptimal | Golden Colorado

Make better decisions, faster.  Although the industry has rapidly evolved with the addition of NoSQL, streaming data analytics and other Big Data consumption techniques, the core needs for managing and visualizing organizational data remain:

  1. Structure the Data Around the Business Case: when building an operational dashboard, the faster the better…when building a financial report, aim for accuracy and batch the data in a historical repository.
  2. Ensure Data Quality: track bad data analytics and reporting back to the source systems and continuously spot-check reports for accuracy.
  3. Create Easy to Read Dashboards and Reports: no explanation needed for your users.
  4. Choose Good Vendors: ones that are well supported and have competitive feature-sets.
