Analytic Data Management Services


Data Vision and Strategy

From your interests and goals, and those of your stakeholders, we'll help you create a vision and a strategy for your analytic data ecosystem.

Data Platform Architecture

Whether you need a data lake, a data warehouse, a NoSQL database, or a data streaming pipeline we will architect it to fit your environment and strategy.  If you have requirements defined, we'll work to them; if not, we'll help you create or quantify them.

Data Platform Assessment/Selection

Wondering if your data platform is up to you next wave of demands?  Whether that new workload or data source should go on Hadoop or the data warehouse?   We'll assess, measure if needed, and recommend based on on our unmatched expertise with scalability, performance and data availability.   You will learn whether changes are needed and, if so, what to do. 

The Role of Cloud

How should cloud fit into your analytic ecosystem?  And, how best to manage your data in each cloud?   

We’ll use our engineering approach to help you answer these questions and many more.  If you are putting substantial amounts of analytic data in the cloud you need a data management architecture that deals effectively with your use cases and that provides data security, metadata management, performance, scalability and effectively managed cost.  You don’t automatically save money when you put a data warehouse workload in the cloud.   We’ll analyze your options and create a solution that achieves your goals with respect to performance, cost, security and other factors.

Solution Design

Once the platform for that challenging database or workload has been selected, you still need a design.   We will identify the critical engineering issues such areas as scale, performance and data availability -- then work out the database design soluition.   Whether you are using open source or commercial data managers, whether SQL or NoSQL, whether cloud or on prem, whether Hadoop or commercial platforms -- we have the expertise to create a design that will work.  We'll collaborate with your existing team or work independently, as you prefer.  We have helped many leading companies avoid the pitfalls of big data, fast data and complex data projects.

Review and Advice

If you already have a critical data strategy, architecture or design, we can provide you an expert, independent review.   Our review of key data architectural and data engineering issues will be penetrating but constructive.   We'll identify key challenges and pitfalls and help your team navigate to success.

Or, if you just want some advice on a key question, we'll provide a phone consult or a brief onsite consult according to your needs.
