Research has shown that businesses who leverage their data are statistically more likely to be successful in their respective industries. The opportunity granted by big data enables businesses to boost their competitive advantage, improve the business decision making process, and increase revenue.

Using insights from big data, companies are:

  • 5x as likely to make decisions faster than market peers
  • 3x as likely to execute according to established plans
  • 2x as likely to outperform 75% of competitors, landing in the top 25% financial performers in their industries

Some of our customers were able to achieve that by building a joint solution with Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and MapR’s Converged Data Platform. Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data is a highly scalable architecture that includes computing, storage, connectivity, and unified management capabilities. The MapR Converged Data Platform integrates the power of Hadoop and Spark with global event streaming, real-time database capabilities, and enterprise storage, enabling customers to harness the enormous power of their data.

Here is one customer example:

Founded in 2002, Australian-based data analytics firm Quantium—whose customers include Australia’s largest companies, including Woolworths, National Australia Bank and Foxtel— revolutionized its analytics approach and expanded its footprint into new market segments. With the Cisco and MapR platform, Quantium realized a 92% reduction in query time with improved accuracy, and a 30% reduction in time spent managing data clusters.
