Today, there are analytics platforms that can streamline your data analysis to cut down on the time you spend working with and waiting for usable information. When you're ready to update your toolset, look for an analytics platform that brings together technologies for analytics on structured and unstructured data from all of your data sources so you can get real-time decision support with a 360-degree perspective. Ideally, your solution should incorporate all the hardware, software and services components you need in one appliance to further streamline your data storage and usage.
