Data Management

Data has become one of an organisations most valuable assets. Organisations and individuals now produce vast amounts of real-time heterogeneous data i.e. Big Data. This data is both structured and unstructured, but without having that data available or gaining useful insights from that data it is a wasted asset. So, now there is a greater demand for organisations to manage and leverage their data effectively.

There are a vast range of issues that organisations face in relation to data, including:

  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Data Preservation
  • Ethics
  • Data Storage
  • Data Archival
  • Data Distribution
  • Volume and Diversity
AtoBI assists organisations with the issues around data management, including:
  • Planning
  • Infrastructure
  • Governance
Thus, driving control of data and its lifecycle.

Data Strategy

Data strategy has traditionally addressed areas such as data storage, data retention, data handling and archiving. These are very tactical in nature and only go part of the way to developing a data strategy. Data strategies must also be able to identify data
  • How it is to be accessed
  • How it is distributed/accessed and provisioned
  • How it is to be consumed/used as well as the governance of the data
AtoBI can consult and guide you with your data strategy as well as develop a data strategy for your organisation.

Data Integration

As organisations adapt to meet the demands of their customers, staff, executives, auditors, board and shareholders… the adoption of new IT systems is often at the expense of their data management strategy. This typically creates a multi-vendor IT environment with multiple and disparate data sources that weren’t originally designed to leverage other organisational data in a cohesive manner. AtoBI assists organisations with leveraging their various data sources through a cohesive data integration process. This enables organisations to fully leverage their data and gain insight into their corporate performance to meet market demands.

Data Curation

Data, increasingly digital and “big”, surrounds us in our work and our personal lives. Curation and management of data involves ensuring its usability and accessibility for the future and requires new strategies, practices, tools and techniques.

A 2018 Dresner Wisdom of Crowds Data Catalogue survey found that 47% of survey respondents indicated that BI and Analytical consumers of data in organisation found it difficult to extremely difficult to find the data that they required for their analysis and reports. In addition, another 24% found it somewhat difficult to find the data they need. This was more pronounced in mid-sized to large-sized organisations.

AtoBI will ensure that your organisation has data curation from the point of data creation through the data lifecycle of description, use, storage, accessibility and understandability over time, to future usability and use.

Data Cataloging

If you’re looking for the following;
  • To spend more time using data, and less time searching for it
  • Looking to comply with data regulatory requirements
  • Looking to reduce the costs associated with data redundancy and data hoarding

then AtoBI are here to take you on that journey.

Data Cataloguing helps our customers to reduce the cost of data management, unlock hidden value, and unleash their competitive advantage. Cataloguing also assists in identifying and eliminating duplicate data, which is always high on the list of trusting the data source when reviewing the insights that have been created.

Data Cataloguing will help you manage your combined Big Data, Data Warehouse, Cloud Services and Databases across your organisation.

It will also help you to leverage machine learning and AI to automate data preparation.

Embedded Analytics

What is “Embedded Analytics”?

Simply put, it means data visualisations seamlessly integrated into a larger environment, such as a company intranet page.

What’s the Benefit?

Traditionally, Business Intelligence (BI) software has been self-contained applications that require installation and training for users, making it a chore for them and increasing maintenance loads on IT teams. This approach has always been a blocker for delivering answers to business questions, since most users are too busy doing their jobs to go hunting for data in slow, difficult-to-use software applications.

Embedding analytics into an existing environment provides relevant, real-world and always up-to-date information to end users in a place that they’re already familiar with. It does not require users to go seeking data or to learn new software applications. Rather, it puts interactive visualisations at their fingertips and keeps the important information front of mind for them all the time.

Adding embedded analytics to your customer facing website can provide you with data that will aid customer retention. You will be able to target offers or information that will provide your customers with a better experience and therefore give you a competitive edge.

Not only can embedded analytics provide high-level KPI data to users in a place like a corporate intranet, it can also be used to deliver complete solutions for users requiring detailed analytics tools. This entire scenario can be delivered in-browser and seamlessly integrated into the intranet.

Embedded Analytics allows for ease of use and  saves your staff time. It provides a central location for all data analysis and reporting. Often people feel “put off” by different looks to the data but by using embedded analytics you are able to provide the same look and feel via an interface whilst accessing data from different applications and sources.

Sounds great but how do we do it?

While the idea sounds large and very expensive, it doesn’t have to be either of those things. AtoBI can rapidly deliver solutions from small-scale visualisations in existing environments right through to fully interactive, cross-platform analytics applications that integrate data from multiple sources and deliver it in a web browser.
