How to Manage Big Data Challanges


For decades, IT has relied on conventional business intelligence and data warehousing, with well-defined requirements and pre-defined reports.

In the new world of big data analytics, discovery is part of the process, so objectives shift as new insights emerge. This requires an infrastructure and process that can quickly and seamlessly go from data exploration to business insight to actionable information. Database and Application Archiving provides a comprehensive strategy that allows you to achieve your critical business objectives including the availability of critical applications, reducing data storage hardware and administration costs, and improving daily database performance.

To swiftly transform data into business value, a big data architecture should be seen as a supply chain that can manage and process the volume, variety, and velocity of data. To get started, every company needs a big data process. That process is divided into three steps:

1. Identify business goals

No one should deploy big data without an overall vision for what will be gained. The foundation for developing these goals is your data science and analytics team working closely with subject matter experts. Data scientists, analysts, and developers must collaborate to prioritize business goals, generate insights, and validate hypotheses and analytic models.

2. Make big data insights operational

It’s imperative that the data science team works in conjunction with the devops team. Both groups should ensure that insights and goals are operational, with repeatable processes and methods, and they communicate actionable information to stakeholders, customers, and partners.

3. Build a big data pipeline

The data management and analytics systems architecture must facilitate collaboration and eliminate manual steps. The big data supply chain consists of four key operations necessary for turning raw data into actionable information. These include:

  • Acquire and store: Access all types of data from any platform at any latency through adapters to operational and legacy systems, social media, and machine data, with the ability to collect and store data in batch, real-time and near-real-time modes.
  • Refine and enrich: Integrate, cleanse, and prepare data for analysis, while collecting both technical and operational metadata to tag and enrich data sets, making them easier to find and reuse.
  • Explore and curate: Browse data and visualize and discover patterns, trends, and insights with potential business impact; curate and govern those data sets that hold the most business value.
  • Distribute and manage: Transform and distribute actionable information to end-users through mobile devices, enterprise applications, and other means. Manage and support service-level agreements with a flexible deployment architecture.

Once the process is established, the big data reference architecture can support these four common big data use case patterns, which enable actionable business intelligence: data warehouse optimization, 360-degree customer analytics, real-time operational intelligence, and managed data lakes.

Most organizations today are experiencing explosive information growth, while needing to improve data access, reduce costs, and increase IT efficiency. easySERVICE’s Storage Optimization Archiving solution addresses these initiatives through a range of capabilities including mailbox management, historical data remediation, data de-duplication, and data lifecycle management.
