Big data doesn’t have to mean an equally big cost.
Storing a large amount of data and making it accessible to all of your employees used to be a big problem for small businesses. Their only option was to get a local network all of their own, which then had to be maintained and often required a full-time IT support person or a reliance on specialist IT technicians, usually charging extortionate callout rates.
But with the advent of Cloud services and apps, even small businesses can now deal with big data effectively. Here’s why Big Data is so important to every business:
Continuity: Having all the data you need in one place ensures that you have the information that is required to run your business successfully. We utilise state-of-the-art technology to keep all your data safeguarded so that your business processes will not be interrupted.
Sharing: Everyone in your organisation needs access to your data simultaneously and the ability to make changes to it in real-time. Only a cloud solution can provide this functionality without the need for infrastructure investment.
Visualisation: Having a giant amount of data is great but unless you have some way of interpreting it then it is often meaningless to you. If you just have lists of information you might end up staring at it for hours until it begins to make sense – that’s why we give you immediate visual interpretations of all our data.
Storage: Over time the amount of business data you accumulate will increase massively. Thankfully the Business Cloud is completely scaleable to your requirements so there is no need to dispose of any of it – you never know when you might need it. Historical data is a great way of spotting recurring problems.
Curation: The Business Cloud allows you to take advantage of the most up-to-date and accurate information relating to your business. Now there is no need to rely on data that is out-of-date and it is easy to compare your newest figures with historical ones.
