Common Analytics Challenges

Gartner’s survey of Chief Data Officer (CDO) priorities for 2017 includes implementing next generation data processing technologies and increasing delivery speed using automation and agile techniques. However organizations have a tough time getting projects off the ground quickly due to manual processes, costly and inflexible licensing solutions.

Start-up friction and delays

Are you supporting multiple analytics projects? Provisioning servers, buying licenses, installing software and waiting for infrastructure support are common factors that delay analytics projects. stackArmor’s Analytics Workbench helps you rapidly create and deploy analytics environments.

 

Expensive long term contracts

Traditional data analytics and management software locks customers into long term contracts irrespective of usage. The inability to scale up and down based on demand makes data analytics projects costly to implement.

 

Lack of security and compliance

Given heightened security and compliance needs, data projects often get delayed because security concerns are not adequately addressed with modern encryption, logging and monitoring solutions. This increases the cost of projects and delays implementation.

 

Cloud platforms, big data technologies and a comprehensive security framework are critical to ensuring a robust delivery environment.
