What technology makes up an analytics platform?

Advanced analytics requires specialized tools and massive amounts of processing power to store and process data so it can be mined for insights and generating reports.

The platform is made up of many technology layers. These include:

Business Intelligence

Standardized reporting and dashboard tools that enable analysts and business stakeholders to access the latest data and generate valuable insights and reports quickly.

As the data never leaves the platform, it is always secure.

Data Access

Programming for interactive queries using powerful processing tools.

Data Engineering

A workbench for exploring data. Techniques include modeling, large-batch processing and the deployment of machine learning.

Data Storage

Inexpensive cloud storage for structured and unstructured data.

Mirroring data on the cloud protects your operations data from accidental modifications and performance outages.

Development Operations

Governance, monitoring and auditing of data to verify and ensure accuracy.

Code Lifecycle Management

Continuous integration and analytics deployment

The platform experts at WebbMason Analytics have implemented solutions for Fortune 2000 enterprises across health care, retail and other industries.

While the problems and needs have differed enormously, we have noticed that business drivers for most enterprises fall into one of the following categories:

System Modernization

Organizations ready to move up from legacy mainframes, data warehouse and retrospective reporting to cloud technologies that can generate predictive insights.

Cost Management

Enterprises wishing to replace on-premises systems with more modern and cost-effective cloud technology solutions.

Mitigating Risk and Predicting Success
