In a recent Forrester survey, technology executives and decision makers have put data-related projects at the top of their priority investment list. Why did they do this? Organisations want to have more and deeper insights out of the enormous amount of data that they have. By estimation, most organisations only analyse 12% of their data, the rest is left untouched. In order to be able to take well-funded decisions, they need the correct and most relevant information.
To many organisations the integration and visualisation of data is still a relatively big investment. The current solutions available contain, more often than not, information that is already out of date or very static. With a bit of luck the information is updated daily but at many organisations the updates only take place once a week or even monthly. All sorts of information sources are being connected and shown to the users via different, complex batch sessions.
Big data solutions based on Hadoop and Spark make the catching, processing and analysing of large data quantities affordable. This way all sorts of previously unknown correlations can be identified. The next step in this process is to make these results available to the end-users, based on (dynamic) dashboards that visualise the information in the usual graphs, tables and pies.
ISSD Dynamic dashboards can display (near) real-time information in order to make it possible for the organisation to act in time upon changes in their markets or in other occasions. This allows them to make real data-driven decisions. These dashboards are user specific and contain information from different sources such as financial applications but also sensors in the upcoming “Internet Of Things” (IOT) world. The data are constantly being updated and thus stay relevant.
