Five Reasons why Big Data Virtual Appliances will affect your business
Marcelle von Wendland, President, Big Data Division
1. Faster answers
The call “we need answers and we need them now” is familiar in most businesses. Traditional solutions and databases are failing to deliver.
Big Data Virtual Appliances reduce the latency on complex analysis performed across multiple data sources. Big Data Virtual Appliances bring together data from many different sources into one scalable system, engineered to deliver answers up to 100,000 times faster.
As a result, you can get faster answers at the click of a button, even when you’re searching through terabytes of data.
If you are an ISV, SaaS vendor or system integrator, our Big Data Virtual Appliance could allow you to integrate ‘Faster Answers’ into existing products or new offerings in a matter of weeks or months.
2. Better answers
With previous approaches, there was often little choice as to what data could be used in the search for answers.
Big Data Virtual Appliances are changing this by allowing business users to start using almost any form of data source efficiently and quickly as part of analysis, queries, reports and dashboards. What’s more, user-defined smart business rules will allow users of Big Data Virtual Appliances to pre-qualify and quality assure any data before it is used for a specific purpose.
If you are an ISV, SaaS vendor or system integrator, our Big Data Virtual Appliance could allow you to integrate smart data discovery and data quality assurance capabilities that can be configured by your users for their own needs. You can also superimpose mandatory checks for any imports into your standard solutions, thus reducing support calls and increasing customer satisfaction.
3. Tighter security
One of the advantages of using Big Data Virtual Appliances is that they help protect aggregations of data from many sources. They also help to eliminate the risk of giving large numbers of users direct access to individual data sources.
Big Data Virtual Appliances also allow very sensitive data to be held in specially protected instances, with additional checks and full audit trails. Because Big Data Virtual Appliances can be easily deployed in public, hybrid and private clouds, or even as a secure in-house private cloud in a traditional on-premise environment, you can choose the approach that works best for your data security requirements.
If you are an ISV, SaaS vendor or system integrator, our Big Data Virtual Appliance could allow you to create more secure solutions, while giving your customers a greater choice of deployment options.
4. Unlimited scalability
One thing about big data is you know it’s going to get bigger: more data, more sources, more integration with real-time operational processes.
Big Data Virtual Appliances let you add capacity where and when you want it easily so you only pay for what you need, and only use what you pay for.
If you are an ISV, SaaS vendor or system integrator, our Big Data Virtual Appliance could allow you to make your solution more cost-effective for your customers – making it easier to maintain your margins. It could also add revenue from additional services, and more seamless growth in usage.
5. Fewer people
Big Data Virtual Appliances allow you radically to reduce complexity. This allows your people to focus on getting the right answers for your business, rather than creating expensive hand-crafted ad-hoc solutions which take a lot of time and resource to build, and are then difficult to maintain.
Big Data Virtual Appliances provide everything you need for creating answers out of the box. They are designed to manage themselves, so fewer people are involved in managing them. This means faster deployment, fewer headaches and much lower operating costs.
