Big Data is growing exponentially every day—in quantity, variety, and speed. The International Data Corporation predicts that Big Data technology and services will grow to $32.4 billion by 2017, representing one of the fastest-growing, multibillion-dollar markets worldwide.
The impetus behind this is clear. Big Data represents huge opportunity for businesses. It enables them to turn data silos into actionable analytics to bring real insight to business strategy—ultimately improving outcomes and performance.
Yet harnessing Big Data is no easy task.
Guided by a Big Data strategy, our advanced business intelligence solutions help you organize, manage, analyze, and leverage large quantities of data to drive evidence-based decision-making. Whether your data is local, in the cloud, or both, we eliminate the complexity of Big Data and turn it into a competitive advantage for your business.
Our Big Data solutions leverage some of the most innovative tools on the market including Map Reduce, Sqoop, Flume, Mahout, MongoDB, Cassandra, Hadoop, and NoSQL.
“Big Data is about much more than data. It represents a new way of doing business—one that is driven by data-based decision-making and new types of products and services enriched with data.”
Business Intelligence is a concept that typically involves the delivery and integration of relevant and useful business information in an organization. As such, companies use business intelligence to detect significant events and identify/monitor business trends in order to adapt quickly to their changing environment or scenario.
Your organization has data, lots of data, and probably stores that data in a variety of formats, such as databases, e-mail messages, and spreadsheet files. Bluestar’s Business intelligence tools help you organize that data in a useful way and present that data as meaningful information.
One of the main advantages of investing in business intelligence software and skilled personnel is the fact that it will boost your ability to analyze the current consumer buying trends.
Our Business Intelligence based solution is a web application that is optimized to help you manage the working components of business intelligence reporting: scorecards, dashboards, data connections, status lists, status indicators, and so on. You can customize our solution as much as you like, or you can just start by using its built-in data handling options.
Our Business Intelligence solution is a great place to start. You can see examples of key BI elements, such as an Excel Services workbook for analysis, charts, and different kinds of dashboards. And, to learn more about any example, please contact us.
According to Cisco, 2014 is the first year the majority of workloads will be in the cloud. The benefits of this trend are unmistakable. As many as 82% of businesses claim to have saved money by downsizing their IT infrastructure after adopting cloud solutions.
The advantages don’t end with cost savings. Businesses also benefit from greater scalability, responsiveness, and operational efficiency. Enabling a service-based IT delivery model, the cloud offers “off the shelf” hardware and large-scale virtualization for processing, storage, and application development.
With an in-depth analysis of your business and IT objectives, we’ll develop a holistic cloud strategy that considers:
- Budget requirements
- Technical capabilities and constraints
- Scalability requirements
- Risk and vulnerability management
- Compliance with government and industry regulations
- Organizational change strategy
- Comprehensive migration strategy
After defining a cloud roadmap and choosing the right platform, we’ll work with you to develop and manage a cloud infrastructure, extend applications to cloud platforms, and provision and manage cloud resources.
“Cloud has finally started to move beyond the hype and into the very fabric of today’s enterprise…. As cloud begins to become more mainstream within the business environment, we are seeing organizations move from the ‘when and why’ of the cloud adoption process to instead focus on the ‘how’.”
