• Reduce costs
• Speed and convenience
• Increase resilience
• Governance and security
As the business environment becomes evermore complex, organisations need to adapt their goods and services at an accelerating pace. For example, manufacturing goods for the right people at the right time, speeding up the supply chain and reducing costs without compromising quality. And so picking up the pace in the decision-making process is now more important than ever.
The number one asset after people is data. With accurate data readily available, businesses can make better decisions, faster. However, although organisations are generating more data than ever, most are not equipped to take advantage of it, with a lot of data remaining siloed and disjointed.
Plus, organisations operating traditional on-premises data platforms experience huge costs to run and support them, with limited flexibility to make changes. Because of this, these organisations are often reluctant to take advantage or experiment with the data available.
At Data Technology, we help businesses migrate their data onto the major hyperscaler platforms, such as Microsoft, AWS and Google, where it becomes connected, readily available and analytics-ready.
By taking a systems-agnostic approach, we marry business problems to the right technical solutions, and then pair those technical solutions with the right toolsets. Our tailored implementation and managed support services help to make sure our clients benefit from the convenience, security and reliability afforded by cloud solutions.
Aggregate Industries Migration Project
Aggregate Industries had run its Data Warehouse and BI Platform on internal infrastructure for over two decades. Making a strategic decision, they moved to the AWS cloud, benefiting from:
Massive Economies of Scale: Using cloud computing, they can achieve a lower variable cost, meaning lower “pay-as-you-go” prices. This enhances their ability to grow and, as an acquisitive business, consolidate and integrate the targets’ systems rapidly.
Removed Fixed Expenses: Instead of having to invest heavily in data centres and servers before they know how they’re going to be used, they pay only when they consume.
Capacity Management: This removes the guesswork on capacity requirements scaling up or down – be it for experiments, deploying applications, acquiring new companies, or computing requirements due to the expansion of their own business, coupled with being able to deploy infrastructure globally at a click of a few buttons.
Increased Speed and Agility: A few clicks and resources are available to their teams; an exercise that previously took weeks and months now takes a fraction of the time - increasing agility and cutting the cost of the whole process.
Data Centres: Managing data centres and all that goes with it - such as powering, racking, stacking, feeding and watering, and all the other physical and non-physical threats and other relevant skills to go with managing data centres given the wage and non-wage inflation was causing the huge spikes in running costs.
