How a professional partner makes data processing easier

by Jun 26, 2023Insights

New cloud technologies have made data transformation and migration more efficient. This includes moving data from its source in a raw state to its analytics-ready state in the target environment. A professional partner makes these processes easier, especially for large enterprises with huge data requirements.

Many large companies have adopted cloud environments and their growth rates for data creation and collection have risen exponentially. These businesses need to extract maximum value from their data, which can leave their IT teams overwhelmed by the sheer volume and complexity of the data.

This is where modern technologies and the right partner can play a crucial role. 4C Group has a range of information management services and database support offerings for large enterprises in Africa. Our expert team of database administrators and consultants have extensive experience helping companies with their data challenges and requirements.

Challenges with traditional data technologies

Traditional methods of data integration are no longer suitable for modern enterprises. They involve several challenges that need to be overcome before meaningful insights can be gained from a company’s data. Firstly, data collection is an arduous task with outdated technologies – it requires significant coordination to ensure that the data is complete and accurate.

Secondly, the process of data cleansing is not as accurate with traditional methods. This is the process of transforming the data into a format that can be easily analysed and understood. It involves deleting duplicate datasets, correcting errors and standardising formats – an intensive task where automation cannot be used.

Data also needs to be integrated from multiple sources into one coherent and unified dataset to make the task of analysing and interpreting the data more efficient. This requires careful mapping and normalisation to ensure consistency. 

Lastly, once the data has been cleaned, it needs to be stored in a format that is easy to access and retrieve, which requires significant computing power on traditional servers. Traditional technologies are no longer sufficient for most data-intensive enterprises; getting from raw data to analytics-ready data is too time-consuming and resource-heavy.

Modern data processing solutions

Today, this process is still challenging but new technologies and the right partner can make it faster and more efficient. Any organisation that wants to build a modern database and pipeline should seek out assistance from an expert company that has the experience and the correct skills.

New technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) systems, need to be incorporated by data and analytics teams to drive new growth and innovation for enterprises. These technologies can help companies predict changes and manage uncertainty more easily. Investing in the right tech and tools that suit the company’s needs can improve the value of their data. 

Why do enterprises need to unlock their full data potential?

Data plays a key role in improving the customer experience and operational efficiency, both of which drive company growth and success. Unlocking the potential of data requires proper analysis – incorrect predictions or misreading data can hinder a company in its objectives.

Automation can be used to collect data in real-time from a multitude of sources and deliver it to the IT team without delay. It can also help with cleaning and presenting data so it is ready for the analytics team. This can improve the insights gained from the information and allow the company to rethink its customer experience and leads funnel, which in turn can improve the efficiency of the data pipeline.

This can save vast amounts of time and money for a company without having to expand its IT teams. Outsourcing to a managed services provider can ensure that the maximum benefit is derived from business data.
