Big Data Analytics as a Service; Accelerating Your Big Data Strategy

Data is at the center of everything, providing opportunities for information-centric decision making and process improvement. Data is now viewed as an enterprise asset - No longer is technology the driving force in an IT environment. Information now drives future business decisions, not the technology. As data becomes a fundamental asset of the enterprise, organizations need to extract the most pertinent information out of existing data to create new value. Having this new wealth of big data information also presents challenges including analyzing the data and sharing it across organizations to get the most value out of it. Having the right analytics tools to look at the data is crucial coupled with trained staff that know what they are looking for and not overlook key information. While government agencies have domain expertise, they also need skilled data scientists, tools and infrastructure to unlock the value of their data assets. Buying products won't solve your data analytics problems. Big Data as a Service is an out of the box service that pairs a cloud platform with custom analytics. This approach allows rapid integration best of breed analytics with your unstructured data at a low cost entry-point where you pay only for what you actually need, not what you might need. It is unique in the government marketplace.

Consolidating Mission-critical Systems in Today's Public Sector Environment

Government agencies are challenged to reduce the cost of government while maintaining constituent level of service. With security, privacy and performance requirements at an all-time high, complying with OMB mandates to consolidate 800 datacenters by 2017 is requiring agencies to balance risks of reduced cost and the reliability of delivering a secure and predictable solution. Traditional legacy systems supporting mission-critical applications deliver the security, predictability and reliability today and agencies are challenged to maintain the same attributes in a new consolidated model.
