Most companies recognize that they have opportunities through data analytics to raise productivity, improve decision making, and gain competitive advantage. Unfortunately, the majority of initiatives fail to move beyond the experimental stage, or analytic insights are not operationalized back into the business as intended. The causes range from inaccessibility to siloed data, time invested in continually gathering the data before performing analytics, and long lead times for resources from IT. Recently, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) reviewed Dell EMC Analytic Insights Module, which is engineered to smooth out these friction points in the data analytics lifecycle. It’s delivered on Dell EMC Native Hybrid Cloud, combining a self-service data analytics experience with cloud-native application development in a single cloud platform.
What did ESG do?
ESG reviewed Analytic Insights Module from end-to-end, reviewing data processes across the entire analytics lifecycle. Their study focused on both the technical and the user experience aspects, and the results are in.
Analytic Insights Module delivers faster time to actionable insights and continual ease of use over other solutions for data discovery, ingest, and analysis. We’re not surprised, though. Analytic Insights Module was specifically engineered to make data analytics and operationalizing insights easier, so organizations can focus on their business rather than the technology.
What were some of the results?
ESG found incredible benefits in terms of speed, flexibility of the analytics environment, and overall benefit to building an in-house solution. A couple of the many observations from the study include:
- Self-service analytic workspaces with Hadoop clusters stood up in just 15 minutes.
- Users can implement a robust data analytics solution 47% faster, on average, than building it in-house.
Why should your businesses care?
Faced with competitive pressures, businesses need to differentiate themselves among the sea of options in the market. Insights derived from data analytics can help businesses gain the edge they need, but technical obstacles have often stymied progress. Analytic Insights Module removes these barriers by enabling data analyst teams to get to work quickly delivering insights back into the business within quotas set by IT. With single-contact support across the platform, companies can now move faster and become more innovative by focusing on their business, not the underlying platform.
