Not surprisingly, your business has collected a lot of data over the past few years, and you have used some analytical databases or data warehouses to organize and understand your insights. Congratulations, you have taken the 1st step with your data strategy, and produced analytics that will help drive your business!
Meanwhile, your applications need to operate in real-time to make immediate decisions on streaming data or data in motion on both your customer facing applications that drive revenue or build brand loyalty – as well as those internal applications that help your business operate efficiently, reducing bottom line costs. Using analytics directly in the applications can help apply what you have learned to automate your business workflow and remove the manual components.
