- DELIVERY MODELS
Earlier this year, we discussed how Hadoop’s role in the enterprise would move from data storage to data analytics.
Now that we are well into 2015, there is another important shift that we should mention: the move from analyzing historical data to acting on real-time data – or data in motion.
Why the need to act on data as it happens?
When enterprise clients initially engaged Hadoop, it was to help them store data in a supremely flexible, scalable, and affordable way.
Now that unstructured data is in abundance, businesses want the luxury of tapping into that data to glean insights that will help drive revenue on the fly.
This is where data in motion helps the cause.
Data in motion captures information as it happens, so with Hadoop in the enterprise there is the option to not only access real-time data but also make more efficient and targeted business decisions based on behaviors, intent, locations, and other data indicators.
It is not only about what has happened, but also about what is happening that will allow businesses to become more data-driven.
How is your organization using Hadoop beyond data storage?
Vedams was able to bring the necessary expertise and resources to meet our business objectives. What I like the most is its flexibility in their business model to meet our needs.
Our partnership with Vedams has been highly successful. The Vedams team is extremely productive and dedicated to ensuring success. Their willingness to go above and beyond has resulted in consistently meeting schedules with high quality releases despite several challenges that needed to be overcome.
They conduct their work and business relationship with the highest degree of honesty and integrity.
Vedams is a highly valuable addition to Xyratex’s own global product test organization. With product availability and reliability requirements being key differentiators for Xyratex in its markets, the need for exhaustive, rigorous and in-depth functional testing is critical.
The knowledge required to perform at this level, being very data storage focused, is not easily obtained but I have been impressed by the way these skills have been cultivated and the low levels of staff turnover.
Vedams’s global delivery model is strongly supported by their onshore project management. Because of the seamless communication maintained by the local project managers, we were able to keep our customer’s aggressive schedules on time and on budget.
