PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP Enterprise Services today announced a new information management and analytics (IM&A) service designed to help clients rapidly gain increased value from Big Data assets to support their efforts to drive new revenue opportunities, improve efficiency, reduce risk and lower costs.
While executives understand the importance of taking command over the variety, velocity and volume of information, many regard their organizations as unable to address the associated challenges. According to global research commissioned by HP,(1) more than one out of two business executives reported that their organizations are not equipped with the right solutions to gain insight from Big Data. In addition, they lack the expertise as well as a cohesive strategy to bring all of the components together to incorporate new and old data sets. With greater insights, enterprises can take action to improve and transform their enterprise.
The new HP Big Data Discovery Experience simplifies and accelerates the entry path for clients to unlock the value of their information. The service provides a scalable discovery environment where clients can explore different technologies to experience insights gleaned from their own data. This enables them to move from high-level concepts of Big Data to the reality of harnessing and acting on the information.
It’s great to see continued investment from HP in the Big Data space leveraging their HP Labs business and research to deliver Big Data solutions for their customers. I remain a fan of the work they’ve been doing not only in the Big Data software and services stack, but also the underlying technology to deliver end to end Big Data solutions for business specific solutions from data analytics with HP Autonomy through to data provisioning, backupa nd restore based on industry standard technologies wth the best of their enterprise grade technologies like 3PAR through to their Converged Infrastructure offerings in the Network, Storage and Compute space.
