Enterprise Business Analytics Solutions

Data provides enterprise businesses with the insight to analyze the past, optimize the present, and make strategic business decisions for the future. The key question is: In a world of big data and information on demand, how does your business accelerate time to insight and action? Microsoft Services can help by delivering powerful data solutions that make it easier and faster to gather and prepare data and get it to the people who need it.

Your value

The benefits of Big Data are not limited to business intelligence (BI) experts or data scientists. Nearly everyone in an organization can analyze and make more informed decisions with the right tools. Microsoft Services can help with your business analytics and big data aspirations by delivering powerful data solutions to make gathering and preparing data easier and faster. This means businesses can quickly get insights from data to take action and operationalize the data use for making decisions. We do this by working with your people and our technology to make analytics accessible to everyone, protecting privacy, and maintaining the security of your company data.

Our approach

Microsoft Services experts can help enterprise businesses move quickly to realize value in business analytics and big data. Take advantage of new opportunities in business analytics, including:

  • Big data strategy workshops

  • Digital marketing and customer experience management

  • Data warehousing with structured and unstructured data

  • Social and public sentiment analysis

  • Data visualization, managed self-service, and mobile business intelligence (BI)

  • Real-time analytics and complex event processing

  • Industry-focused solutions in such sectors as banking, the public sector, retail, healthcare, and many others

  • Custom solution development and specialized engagements

To gain the full value of your business’ data, you need a modern platform that manages data of any type, whether structured or unstructured, and of any size—from gigabytes to petabytes and beyond. An enterprise analytics solution should also manage data that is at rest or in motion. Microsoft Services can help with simplicity, ease of management, and an open source service that runs on-premises or in the cloud. Combine your company’s relational and non-relational data with PolyBase available on the Microsoft Analytics Platform System.

Microsoft Services can help your business realize new value in the data your business has and can combine those new insights with third-party data sets simply and elegantly. Hiring data analysts to surface the right data and source for your business’ precise needs is costly. By connecting to external data sources with business analytics and reporting, your organization can begin to answer new types of questions and deliver new value in ways that previously were not possible.
