It has never been easier to find business data. Inside your organization, databases and data warehouses are expanding in size. Organizations are embracing new repositories with Hadoop, distributed systems and in-memory databases. Scale, speed, and the collection of every bit of business data is quickly becoming the lifeblood of data-driven businesses. Add to that user-generated data from web and social sources that are growing exponentially. And premium data from a multitude of third-party data providers is more frequently updated.
Modern data is increasingly distributed and decentralized. It takes the form of a complex fabric of corporate, web, public and premium data. For all this abundance of data, it's unfortunately never been harder to turn data into action.
Organizations striving to make smart, data-driven decisions face obstacles everywhere as they are held back by the overwhelming complexity of today's internal and external sources of data. The tools available today require deep technical expertise on the part of the user, or are overly simplistic dashboards based on rigid data models. Holding out in the hope of finding more data scientist talent is not a reasonable option. Hoping an overtaxed IT department will deliver the latest insights will slow you down. Anything more - like cross-pollinating corporate data and third-party data for dynamic, interactive analysis - has simply been out of the question.
We are in the golden age of data, and it's time to modernize how data is consumed.
ClearStory Data delivers a new scalable application on an innovative big data architecture as a complete solution. ClearStory's solution modernizes data analysis by delivering a new user model for business users to easily discover, analyze and consume data at scale from corporate, web and premium data sources for combined and up-to-date insights. It includes harmonizing relationships between disparate sources, low-latency data processing at scale, and deriving data from an ecosystem of big data repositories, including Hadoop, relational databases, data warehouses and external sources. We are making it possible for business users to experience the power of interactive, scalable, and immediate multi-source insights.
When analysis is interactive, scalable and multi-source, it changes the relationship that business users have with data. Barriers to data exploration drop and business users naturally engage in hypothesis-driven discovery. And it is through an iterative process of discovery that users will uncover new questions and insights. ClearStory Data encourages business users to ask new questions, uncover new insights and communicate meaning, inside an application built for today's data landscape and today's distributed data teams.
