Latest solution from Mastek helps to improve simplicity, speed, control and compliance in enterprise data environments

Mastek, a global IT player, has today announced the general availability of its data virtualisation service, a comprehensive solution based on the Denodo platform to deliver complex data integration across a range of technologies and business domains.

With 60 per cent of CIOs predicting that their spending on analytics and BI applications will increase in the next 12 months the need to transform data into actionable insights whilst supporting business-as-usual activities is a top priority for today’s CIOs. As well as containing costs and responding quickly to business needs, CIOs must navigate through an array of applications and systems operating in silos which can cause lengthy timeframes and excessive capital investments.

Mastek helps enterprises to overcome these challenges by incorporating a ‘think big, build small’ Agile BI approach to its data virtualisation offering. This approach significantly simplifies the architecture, use of tools and techniques to deliver a high-quality solution that matches the pace of a business’s demands.

In an ever-changing data landscape, Mastek’s Data Virtualisation services leverage consolidated data by providing unified, real-time actionable information, enabling enterprises to deliver data insights up to five times faster. In effect, this can improve enterprise efficiency, increase profitability and reduce TCO compared to traditional enterprise data systems.

As modern data sources stretch the IT landscape, enterprises cannot afford to lose out in an environment that demands instant decision-making through information agility. Mastek’s BI Solution is helping enterprises to embrace agile practises by establishing processes and the infrastructure necessary to manage data as a strategic asset to support the changing needs of a business.

“Today, businesses want to act and improve their decision-making in real time, and one of the most important factors is to have effective, actionable insights on information that is available to a business in days or weeks and not in months or years,” Gordon Cullum, CTO, Mastek, aid. “However, while organisations view data virtualisation as an answer to most of their current challenges, it clearly isn’t a silver bullet. If organisations are going to have any success translating meaningless data into actionable information, business intelligence tools will play a key role in making data readily accessible, helping to turn an organisation’s untapped and underutilised data into a competitive advantage.”

In the digital transformation age, data virtualisation is a formidable ally and a well laid out implementation plan will help businesses leverage existing investment to solve current and future analytic needs without compromise on quality, budget and time.
