Most business opportunities are moving targets these days, rendering static analytical solutions ineffective. Instead, organizations need technologies that enable a much bigger picture, complete with multiple data streams that can be combined to show what’s happening in real-time. And increasingly, companies need to analyze both traditional structured data as well as Big Data, including machine-generated data from all manner of enterprise systems.
This episode of The Briefing Room with veteran Analyst Robin Bloor explains how a confluence of market forces has opened the door to a new analytical paradigm, one in which companies can leverage a vast array of data streams to pinpoint windows of opportunity as or even just before they appear. Bloor was briefed by Damian Black of SQLstream, who discussed his company’s streaming analytical platform for real-time operational intelligence from machine-generated Big Data, which enables the management of dynamic information assets in much the way that traditional databases do for stored assets.
