Tata Communications and Cloudera have formed a strategic partnership enabling enterprises to harness their data to drive growth.
The firms will leverage Tata Communications’ global cloud footprint, which is underpinned by the world’s largest Tier one network, and Cloudera’s machine learning and analytics capabilities. This will allow enterprises to capture, store and analyse data in various formats and across multiple sources with their managed services for Big Data offering.
IDC predicts that 163 zettabytes of data will be generated by 2025, which is ten times the amount of data generated in 2016. This exponential growth leaves enterprises with the challenge of managing various types of data from different sources, without going over budget. This solution directly tackles this challenge by enabling organisations to better structure a wide variety of types and volumes of data, transforming overhead cost into a profit centre. With this, enterprises can capitalise on their data to drive greater productivity, enhance customer experiences and spur innovation.
“Enterprises are already capturing and storing the data that could fuel their growth, if managed efficiently and effectively. With Cloudera’s leadership in the fields of machine learning and advanced analytics and our network and cloud capabilities, managed services for Big Data will help enterprises tackle this data deluge by consolidating data from all sources, both on-premise and cloud-based, into a centralised big data platform,” said Srinivasan CR, Senior Vice President, Global Product Management & Data Centre Services, Tata Communications. “Our solution provides enterprises with the scale, speed and expertise to quickly transform raw data into structured and meaningful insights that address business challenges.”
Managed services for Big Data is available in dedicated or multi-tenant private cloud environments, maintaining enterprise-grade regulatory and privacy standards. With a flexible pay-as-you-use cost model, the platform allows customers to easily scale data on-demand, according to the capacity required. The solution suite includes key features such as data lifecycle management across acquisitions, awareness and modelling, analytics and governance, managed analytics and visualisation tools and professional services to help enterprises define, design and implement their big data strategy.
“Organisations are still relying on legacy solutions to deal with today’s challenge of large and growing amounts of data. The managed services offering for Big Data helps enterprises turn this into an opportunity, with a modern and integrated big data platform that deploys machine learning and advanced analytics. Our strategic partnership with Tata Communications empowers organisations with a solution that derives real value from data and truly enables businesses with data-driven decision-making capabilities,” said Mark Micallef, vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan at Cloudera.
