Data transformation: The key to understanding the future today
The amount of data that businesses and government bodies deal in is growing exponentially. The most successful organisations of the future are likely to be those that understand how to harness the power of the data they hold.
In the past, data was spread across organisations in siloed databases,, but as the scale of the challenge grows, this becomes unmanageable, inefficient and a drain on resources. Utilising technological solutions like AI and cloud services is becoming a necessity for many.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud-computing platform used by major organisations all over the world. The platform supports software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). At Sogeti, we leverage our Microsoft platform expertise to create value for businesses to support the transition to Azure.
Accelerating the journey to a data-centric culture
Sogeti helps global businesses like Coca Cola, Volvo, and NBC to make the most of moving to Microsoft Azure, ensuring optimised processes, lower operating costs, enhanced customer experiences, and greater business speed and responsiveness.
The roadmap to your Azure Insights Platform has five key phases:
- Understanding your journey within the business and technology context
- Enabling your Azure Data Landscape
- Governing and Securing your data assets
- Developing your enterprise data science culture
- Empowering business users to make data driven insights
Through our extensive work in taking clients through this process, Sogeti has developed a number of accelerators to enable savings, improve productivity and reduce time to market. Sogeti and parent-company Capgemini use a Customer Data Platform (CDP) accelerator This is a three-step process that allows companies to map, analyse and activate their data. CDP will allow businesses to target customers, personalize their experiences and help establish a lasting relationship that will result in higher retention rates.
The Azure data platform contains all technology required for data ingestion; data storage; data transformation, advanced analytics and cognitive services; real-time data management; data insights & visualisation and data governance.
