Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

The Operational Data Lake: Your On Ramp to Big Data


Companies recognize the need to integrate big data into their real-time analytics and operations, but this poses a lot of technical and resource challenges. Meanwhile, those organizations that have operational data stores (ODSs) in place find that, while useful, they are expensive to scale. The ODS gives real-time visibility into operational data. While more cost-effective than a data warehouse, it uses outdated scaling technology, and performance upgrades require very specialized hardware. Plus, ODSs just can't handle the volume of data that has become a matter of fact for businesses today.

This white paper discusses the concept of the operational data lake, and its potential as an on-ramp to big data by upgrading outdated ODSs. Companies that are building a use case for big data, or those considering an upgrade to their ODS, may benefit from this stepping stone. With a Hadoop relational database management system (RDBMS), companies can expand their big data practices at their own pace.
