Big Data & Analytics

Cloud services to reinvent the analytics experience


As you expand big data and analytics capabilities throughout your organisation, you need to empower all of your business users to access and analyse data for faster insight. Taking delivery of software, solutions, infrastructure, platforms and services on the cloud can accelerate the value of big data and analytics capabilities, offering scalability with limited upfront investment.

In today’s continuously changing, always connected business environment, you must make the best possible decisions and put them into action immediately. Real-time actionable insight provides the robust big data and analytics capabilities that allow you to capture, analyse and act on all relevant data, including the stream of data generated by the myriad devices that make up the Internet of Things. Marketers, sales managers, financial analysts and other business users gain the insights they need to act in real time based on timely, trusted data.

Analyse streaming data in real time as it flows through the organisation.

Reach the right customer with the right offer at the right time

Governance and security for trusted data


To enable decision makers to act with confidence, you need to ensure that the data they use is clean, timely and accurate.
Data governance should be in place throughout the entire lifecycle—from collection and warehousing to storage and disposal. And security and privacy measures should be in place to protect data from both internal and external threats.
