Modern Data Architecture

It's not just what you build, it's how you build it

Your old data architecture can be a barrier to change 

Companies have more data than ever, as well as more tools and techniques at their disposal to use data to gain a competitive advantage. However, too many companies cannot seize this opportunity because their data infrastructure and analytical capabilities are holding them back.

Clarity Insights has helped numerous Fortune 1000 clients, across multiple industries, build successful modern data architectures that drive their businesses forward.

What is a Modern Data Architecture?

A modern data architecture can use many different technologies but is characterized by a few key elements:

  • A data lake to unite data silos and hold a variety of data types

  • A data integration layer

  • Machine learning and advanced analytics sandbox and tools to enable predictive analysis that can proactively leverage data to improve decision making

  • A cloud platform that can make the solution scalable and cost efficient (while not strictly necessary, this does offer many advantages)

It's not just what you build, it's how you build it 

Modernizing your data architecture is no small matter. Many companies have started the journey of building a data lake to consolidate all enterprise-wide data, beginning the necessary internal transformations, but fail because of complexity. Some challenges include:

  • Not doing due diligence to understand the components and cost of the entire effort (technology, ETL, reporting, etc.)

  • Not having the proper architecture and framework to leverage the right technologies needed to accomplish business goals

  • Not planning for varieties of data (structured & unstructured, public, syndicated, social, etc.) in batch and real-time  

  • Not leveraging the right engine for data transformation and analytics

  • Not understanding total cost of ownership for people, process and technology

Clarity Insights has shown that process matters as much, if not more, than technology, and we can help your company navigate these challenges.
