Digital transformation can be defined as the acceleration of business activities, processes and competencies to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of digital technologies. Digital transformation is often associated with a pure Technology transformation (i.e. moving to AWS or Azure), but for it to be fully transformative, technology should be utilized to perform business transformations.
Digital transformation is not about technology alone. It occurs at the intersection of people, business and technology. Success comes when organizations can effectively use data created by or through technology in a way that enables business change to occur dynamically. The key to this success is creating dynamic business analytics.
Business analytics is a powerful tool in today’s marketplace. Across industries, organizations are generating large amounts of data which, in turn, has heightened the need for tools to interpret and analyze that information. Business analytics can be a valuable resource when approaching an important strategic decision.

AI, ML and NLP are categorized under the umbrella term of “cognitive analytics,” which is an approach that leverages human-like computer intelligence to identify hidden patterns and correlations in data.Explore
What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore
