Converting organizational data into actionable intelligence for driving effective decision-making is not a new phenomenon, but it has become more and more challenging for government agencies.

According to IDC, the amount of data created and stored by organizations around the world is doubling in size every two years, and is expected to grow from 800,000 Petabytes in 2010 to a predicted 35 Zetabytes (35 million Petabytes).

Managing this epic title wave of data in ways that are effective and efficient is no easy task for both large and small organizations.  Though harnessing this data properly is paramount to an organization’s success.  But, how does an organization separate the signal from noise within their data, so that they can develop actionable insights?

ThunderCat recently issued a white paper titled, “Wrangling Actionable Insights from Organizational Data,” which shines a light on how organizations can best leverage data in highly actionable ways.

The paper discusses how the public sector is struggling with data because it is growing exponentially; arriving from multiple channels; gaining in complexity; and requires strictly mandated security controls.

Fortunately Koverse, a ThunderCat partner, provides analytic capabilities in a scalable, secure multi-tenant environment, built using well-established technologies.  The Koverse platform does not replace existing analytics applications. Instead, it complements BI tools and other enterprise applications.

When Koverse is added to an existing environment, organizations can expect to realize significant benefits, including:

  • Regulatory Compliance Gains
  • Organizational Knowledge Gains
  • Information Sharing Gains

In addition, NetApp, another ThunderCat partner, is bringing additional value to government big data implementations by introducing a Hadoop shared storage architecture.

By using the NetApp Open Solution for Hadoop architecture, federal customers gain the ability to scale storage independently from compute resources, creating more efficient and cost-effective big data analytics.

It is no longer about acquiring the most data.  The key to success is gaining the actionable intelligence needed to advance decision-making to enhance business advantage.  Thankfully, through these partners, ThunderCat can help government organizations to leverage the actionable insights Koverse helps to derive, while NetApp E-Series storage provides scalable, speedy storage of their data.
