What is bi analytics and big data

  1. 1. BI, Analytics and Big DataA Modern-Day PerspectiveBy: Elad Israeli, Co-Founder, SiSensehttp://www.sisense.com
  2. 2. WWW.SISENSE.COMBusiness Intelligence (Analytics)A set of theories,methodologies,processes,architectures, andtechnologies thattransform raw datainto meaningful anduseful information forbusiness purposes.
  3. 3. WWW.SISENSE.COMThis is a Report (= a query)
  4. 4. WWW.SISENSE.COMThis is a Dashboard (= several queries)
  5. 5. WWW.SISENSE.COM…and BI/Analytics is:The ability to create a new report, dashboard or justget a new analytic question answered in real-time, orat least in-time.
  6. 6. WWW.SISENSE.COMWhat is Big Data?A collection of data sets so large and complexthat it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditionaldata processing applicationsDue to its technical nature, the same challengesarise in Analytics at much lower volumes thanwhat is traditionally considered Big Data.
  7. 7. WWW.SISENSE.COM..so Big Data Analytics is:The same as ‘Small Data’ Analytics, only with theadded challenges (and potential) of large datasets(~50M records or 50GB size, or more)Challenges, such as:• Data storage and management• De-centralized/multi-server architectures• Performance bottlenecks, poor responsiveness• Increasing hardware requirements

  9. 9. WWW.SISENSE.COMApproaches to The Challenge1. Project-Specific:– The development of a specific dashboard/report– An isolated initiative, with no forward-lookingimplications from the prospect’s perspective2. Solution-Oriented:– The development of a specific dashboard/report,with future ones (known or unknown) in mind

  11. 11. WWW.SISENSE.COMBI/Analytics E.K.GTimeNew Report New ReportThe rate at which new reports are introduced into critical processes shouldincrease over-time, due to:• Completed integration, customization & adaptation• Time for training to sink in• Adoption (more users generating reports)New Report = Answer To New Question = New Insight
