Billions of internet users and trillions of interconnected devices are generating more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data, every 24 hours. And this is just the start of the data age, where data is the new oil, and harnessing the power of data can make or break an organization.
With such a massive surge in data usage, and more and more interconnected IoT devices, smartphones, laptops, edge platforms, and more, organizations need to lay a solid base of their data foundation, and optimize it, modernize it to ensure that they are ahead of their competitors and empowered to serve their customers in a better day.
In this blog, we will share how TechAhead is modernizing and revolutionizing the data foundation of enterprises and startups using Cloud technologies, and how we are triggering a data revolution leveraging the power of the Cloud.
But first, let’s get a brief on the Data Foundation.
What Is a Data Foundation?
Data Foundation is the structure of data that every organization creates (knowingly or unknowingly) to derive wisdom and insights, in order to make business decisions.
It’s like that well filled with water that villagers use to carry out their daily operations with ease: Using water for drinking, washing clothes, cleaning homes, and more.
Similarly, the goal of data foundation for an organization is to provide accurate, timely, and trusted insights and information, using which that organization can perform their critical business operations: reporting and analytics, sales projections, forecasts, budgeting, resource management and more.
Hence, without a solid data foundation, an organization is literally shooting arrows in the dark.
Interestingly, whether an organization is aware or not, they are consistently developing and using data foundation. It all boils down to how efficiently and effectively this data foundation is created, and this is where Cloud comes into the picture.
