Why you need to build a modern data architecture
Read the whitepaper to learn why Azure Databricks and Azure Synapse are better together within your data strategy
While no C-level executive can fully predict the next massive upheaval that will affect their business, every business leader now knows that they need to be ready for it. At many organisations, executives are optimising everything across their business to be able to pivot quickly and embrace continual change in the face of business-changing disruptions.
At every organisation, data platforms are the core of better decision-making. In a recent survey, just 17% of executives said they felt confident they had the right insights to make informed business decisions during the pandemic. Better business analytics can sharpen your digital transformation objectives.
Avanade knows digital transformation depends on having data accessible and organised in the cloud. The effort needed to make this happen is called data modernisation. By building a stronger data ecosystem, businesses can optimise and accelerate the value of the data that surrounds every transaction, process, and system that flows through it. With the right approach, data modernisation will fuel everything from new customer experiences to new digital business models, intelligence-infused ways of working, and artificial intelligence at scale.
Just as market-leading organisations are accelerating their journey to the cloud, they should also prioritise comprehensive data modernisation initiatives. Avanade helps build out a modern data ecosystem that aggregates and simplifies massive stores of data, improves data quality, delivers actionable insights and creates business value through applied intelligence.
"To be able to extract value from data, you need to understand data. And in order to understand data, you have to have deep domain experience. It’s not only a business problem to reduce costs. It’s also to see the opportunities for data."
"What we really like about Avanade and what it’s really bringing to the table, is the fuel for innovation, it’s the passion for innovation that is fundamental if you want to embrace digital transformation. But technology is not enough. You need people. And you need the right combination of people and technology to make a human impact."
To achieve your AI aspirations, you need to build the platform that can turn data into action and value. Ensure your entire data landscape is accessible and addressable by migrating data to Azure cloud. Leverage the power of the Azure ecosystem, including Azure Synapse Analytics to harness insights with machine learning.
