purpose

Where do you start? Zirous will take care of that tough question for you. Before any good Big Data solution comes a great Big Data purpose. Your initial Big Data project is typically something that is done to grab the low-hanging fruit. Meaning, the impact of the data should be great for the end user, while minimizing the impact on your current data process. Some examples could be a data lake, marketing optimization or integrating two data sets for more comprehensive reporting. Subsequent projects could live within multiple business units as the need for Big Data is visualized. New data integration from multiple business lines can facilitate predictive modeling, forecasting, multivariate testing and beyond. We’ll sit down with your project team and walk you through our interview-style discovery questions. These answers will help guide the scope of work to ensure your business will get the most out of your Big Data solution.

process

Behind every great solution is a well-oiled process. We’ll integrate our iterative process into your current one to ensure successful adoption. This will be done through active participation by both business and IT. We’ve already started on the most important step, discovery. From there, Zirous will architect your solution and begin to engineer it. We will organize the ingestion of data from all of your sources to the correct platform so your analysts can access it with familiar tools. Next, we’ll validate data processing efficiency, data consumption responsiveness and verify data integration. Together, we’ll analyze the data to discover patterns and generate actionable insights and even explore new data sources for future use.

PLATFORM

Every Big Data solution requires a foundation of storage and speed for handling large amounts of data from multiple sources. Zirous will assist in selecting the correct platform and deploying the appropriate tools for your Big Data environment. By providing familiar access points for end users and utilizing training and mentoring, we will help ease the learning curve. Zirous can work with your employees to make sure they can utilize the tools they already know in order to drive user adoption. Zirous has built a strong foundation by partnering with EMC, Hortonworks, and Microsoft. Because of these partnerships, we’re going to provide you with everything you need for a great Big Data solution.
