Scalable and high-performant data infrastructures — the core of future business success

A strong data analytics infrastructure strategy ensures enhanced productivity and efficiency, makes collaboration with resources easier and allows easy access of information remotely, provided that you have properly implemented data infrastructure systems in your workflow.

There is a number of things to consider when discussing why modern data infrastructures are important for running a business. One of the main reasons is that they allow for the storage, management, and analysis of large amounts of data, which can provide valuable insights into customer behavior, market trends, and other areas that can help to improve decision-making and optimize operations.

Modern data infrastructures also enable real-time processing, which allows for faster and more accurate responses to changes in the market and customer needs. Overall, modern data infrastructures can help businesses to be more data-driven, efficient and competitive. However, there is a number of things to consider, for getting it right.

Start from the beginning

Before you tackle any kind of BI project, consider questions like: Do you have a data and analytics strategy? What is your company’s overall corporate strategy? What is the business reason behind the need for analytics? You need to define what technology, processes, and people to put in place so you can meet your analytics goals.

Prioritize your projects

Without prioritization your projects may take turns you never intended. Well-communicated priorities help align projects and programs to its strategies, including:

  • Increases the success rates of strategic projects
  • Increases the alignment and focus
  • Builds an execution mindset and culture

Evaluate environments

Where within your technology stack do you need the environments setup? Consider how you move data through the stack. The whole system will run smoother if this is set up well. Some things you should start documenting when evaluating your environments include:

  • Security setup considerations
  • Data load/storage strategy
  • Change management strategy

Build a flexible data model

A data model creates the structure the data lives in, and a thoughtfully created model enables flexibility and ease of use. It also defines how things are labeled and organized which determines how your data can and will be used and ultimately what story that information will tell. Finally, a data model helps define the problem, enabling you to consider different approaches and choose the best one.

Document data lineage

Without the knowledge of how your data goes from origination to its destination, you could end up rebuilding things later. When you document your data lineage, you’ll be able to:

  • Get knowledge about what data is available & its quality
  • Have more transparency about what’s going on with your data
  • Give business users more detail about what they’re using
  • Understand the impact of changes made on a source system

Assess performance

You’ll want to consider performance needs for both front-end user experience and backend infrastructure, including:

  • How long does it take to run reports?
  • What factors are affecting performance?
  • Are those services really too expensive?
  • How often does the data need to be refreshed?
  • How is ETL performance?

Implement data governance

With a properly implemented data governance program, you can gain consistency, get faster time to delivery, lower your maintenance needs, get more quality data, increase user adoption, and a whole lot more. It’s a critical piece to your data and analytics solution, but one that is often overlooked.
