Data platform, is it your company’s engine or break?

“We help our clients to implement data platforms that are beneficial for the business. Data platforms that are suitable and adaptable to different situations; data platforms, that are working as a company’s engine rather than a break.”

– Laura Keränen, Service Area Lead

Well-functioning data platform

Well-functioning data platform accumulates company’s data to one place and shapes a unifying view to different business needs out of it. New needs implementation is convenient, and the data platform gives an understanding that wouldn’t be available otherwise.

Even a misfunctional data platform also gathers company’s data to one place, but forms a chaos, which doesn’t serve anyone, but instead its maintenance and management consumes all the available resources.

Common thing for successful data platform projects is that they have succeeded to linking business needs and technology brought opportunities. What matters is not technology, but how it is used. Therefore, our principles in data platform development are:

  1. Concentrate on creating business value
  2. Design solutions, which are appropriate to the need
  3. Develop solutions to be scalable and durable
  4. Build solutions piece by piece and publish them for use frequently.

Cloud-based architectures, agile practices and DataOps have emerged as today’s trends in data platform building. Ability to utilize various data formats and process data almost in real time increases usage possibilities of data platforms. Because of changed operating environments, it is also possible to utilize data platforms for both analytical and operational needs.

One way doesn’t feet everything, so when implementing data platforms, it is important to keep a whole picture in mind but still proceed one step at a time.
