“Data is the new oil.” This prescient phrase seems to gain steam by the day. Data has become one of a business’s most vital assets, and data-driven businesses have a significant competitive advantage.
The speed at which data needs to be consumed is increasing. Demand and trends change very quickly and being able to adapt to these changes is critical in the modern marketplace. Increasingly we hear from customers that daily updates are no longer enough. Real-time data is often essential to a business trying to manage finite stock or working with real-time currency exchange rates or responding to an event in a production facility.
We co-hosted a morning of presentations and discussions featuring industry leaders, talking about the journey to real-time analytics which allows businesses to react to changes immediately. Our partners Microsoft, twoday, a shared customer Elkjop. Elkjop discussed their journey to make real-time decisions about data and the need for a complete view of their business data. Using SnapLogic as their data and application integration tool, Elkjop was able to:
- Create 250 data pipelines in just 3 days, so they could cost-effectively handle increased data requirements
- Develop 200 real-time dashboards on product sales
- Save NOK 20 million in integration costs after they were consolidated into SnapLogic’s integration platform
Our breakfast seminar focused on how to get operational data into a data lake or data warehouse in real-time, to make decisions faster. During the seminar, we went from discussing the process and then answered questions about integration, data and analytics.
