In the era of data-driven cultures, the transformational impact of analytics initiatives grows more each year. Traditional analytics environments, such as dashboarding and reporting, expand from business analysts to include frontline employees in operations, the warehouse, and at the point of sale.  Advanced predictive and prescriptive analytics initiatives spread from marketing, to finance and customer care, to IoT real-world environments. Streaming data spurs the development and deployment of real-time analytics applications leveraging machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives. These advancements in data and analytics are helping large enterprises reinvent themselves.  

In each of these transformational areas, analytical initiative deployments benefit from cloud-based deployments. Speed of provisioning and pay-as-you-go (operational expense: OPEX) models make cloud solutions very attractive. Some organizations will jump into a "swipe and go" cloud implementation that focuses more on short-term convenience and speed of deployment. This is a short-sighted approach.   

Modern data-driven organizations require more from their implementations. They need corporate-wide data management and visibility. They need speed and flexibility in their options for configuration, processing, and deployment of complex, multi-disciplinary analytics use cases. They need solutions that benefit everyone and facilitate safe self-service and collaboration. A coordinated data environment strategy that considers private and public cloud resources and provides a standardized approach across all of company's data assets and analytics efforts will make a real difference to an organization's success.
