Cloud Analytics

Analytics for the New Era of Pervasive Data Intelligence

Here, Now:
Cloud Analytics

In today’s data-fueled world, cloud analytics are quickly becoming the new currency for knowing not only what is happening in the organization, but more importantly, why things are happening — as well as what is likely to occur in the future, and what the organization should be doing right now to position for success. In other words, cloud data analytics have become the new basis for competing and winning.

Beware of Hype

While cloud enthusiasm is clearly justified, it is important to maintain some perspective. Regardless of where analytics are to be performed, the fundamental purpose of these capabilities does not change with the advent of the cloud.

In other words, the core function of analytics is to drive deeper insight to inform better decisions that improve business outcomes. The mere fact that an organization has analytics in the cloud does not mean the business is any closer to having the best data models to explain the entire operation. Nor does having analytics in the cloud necessarily correlate with having the right, up to-date data on hand to answer hard questions and deliver valid insights.

Teradata believes the ideal analytics platform in the cloud can deliver real-time intelligence leveraging 100 percent of an organization’s data, regardless of scale or volume of queries. With so many available tools to analyze data and such a wide range of choices for how and where to deploy them, the options can seem overwhelming. Beware, not all analytic platform—or deployment methods—are created equal.
