More systems: more data, what to do with it?
April 17, 2023
The increasing digitization of business functions has caused companies to generate more and more data about their operations. Walmart, for example, processes 2.5 petabytes of data per hour. To get an idea, one petabyte of data is equivalent to 500 trillion printed pages. Now the challenge for companies is not to generate more data, but to integrate and analyze this data quickly.

Have you ever had to spend hours integrating data from different systems to run an urgent analysis?
We've all been there: pulling data tables from different systems, doing vlookup formulas and searching for decisive answers in a mountain of data.
What if we could integrate data from the different systems we manage: ERP, WMS, CRM on a single platform? How much time would we save? How many spreadsheets would we not have to pivot?
A Data Operating System can achieve this integration.
A data operating system is a software platform that in a unified way allows managing and processing data coming from the different systems and applications of an organization.
Typically, a data operating system includes functions such as data integration, storage, processing, management and security. Additionally, it can incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities. With unified data, artificial intelligence algorithms can identify patterns, make predictions and generate insights.
Data operating systems are useful for all areas of the company where multiple data sources need to be consulted. A retail chain can integrate its sales analysis with a 360-degree view of its customers. A university can visualize which students are about to drop out of school based on variables such as grades, attendance and payment history.
