Building an Industry-aware Analytics Data Platform to Improve Business Insight and Increase Consumer Engagement

Dan MoralesDelta

Organizations across the globe are struggling to drive down their operational costs while improving consumer engagement and improving overall profitability.

In pursuing these aims, many organizations have launched programs for point analytic systems, IT modernization, and data consolidation projects. They have moved data to the cloud and created data lakes and discovery zones. But without a trusted analytics data foundation, these measures aren't providing the insights that are needed to deliver better business outcomes, gain deeper customer awareness, or drive process change for operational efficiency.

This is why so many organizations have turned to IBM, to take advantage of IBM's deep industry experience developed from thousands of engagements over many years.

Using IBM's Industry Models and the Unified Governance & Integration platform, large and small enterprises with some of the most complex IT and data environments are able to collect, integrate, and govern their operational data, customer data, supply chain data, and more. By building an integrated, governed, industry-aware analytic data platform, organizations are able to gain a longitudinal view of their customers and create reliable analytics and governed data lakes that drive self-service analytics. With these insights, an enterprise can identify actions needed for improved business outcomes and lower operational costs.
