What is Big Data?

Having a big-data plan and strong analytics is rapidly becoming increasingly important to all kinds of businesses. Extensive research studies have continually shown that companies who align themselves with these practices show profit gains of up to 6 percent higher than that of companies who do not. Only in the past few decades have companies been developing these kinds of strategic plans, with the amount of businesses growing exponentially each year. While there are certainly changes that businesses must make when converting to this model, they will quickly find out that the advantages vastly outweigh the challenges.

There are three core elements that any successful plan must contain, starting of course with data itself. Assembling and organizing data in a way that can be read across multiple facets of a company is essential. It isn’t uncommon for a business’s most important data to be held outside the company on social networking sites. Consolidating all of this data into a central, easily accessible location is paramount to success. Whether the company does everything in-house or outsources the information to data specialists, this first step is integral to a prosperous plan.

The next step is optimizing the consolidated data. Advanced analytic models are needed in order to use the data in a way that helps the company’s employees and patrons most effectively. Other benefits of optimization include additional business value, fewer discrepancies, and unnecessary proliferation as models are scaled to various aspects of the business.

When data is consolidated and optimized, the final step will be using tools to intuitively integrate the information into day-to-day processes. In the past, companies who glossed over this last step have realized that their employees and managers failed to apply the new models to their work.

When all of these elements are in place, businesses will be able to integrate data, initiate exciting projects, and create new tools without running into any funding problems or oppositional interference. This is where Learning Evolution plans to be, will you join us?
