The volume, velocity and variety of data continue to increase.
Jesse Davis, Senior Director, Research and Development at Progress® DataDirect®, shares essential tips on how to get better performance out of your apps and BI software by optimizing your data connectivity.
Our world is more connected than ever before, generating more volume and variety of data at a higher velocity than ever before. We track our fitness activity through apps and wearable devices. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies (like Apple's iBeacon wireless protocol) allow for the collection of accurate, real-time data about our in-store behavior. Sensors connect our homes, generating related data, while personal medical devices capture information that helps monitor and diagnose our physical conditions. In fact, data is so ubiquitous in today’s world that during the first day of a baby’s life, the astounding volume of data generated by global human activity is equivalent to more than 70 times the information stored in the Library of Congress.
The challenge in dealing with this extraordinary deluge of information is having the ability to quickly and easily access it, from any device, from any location, at any time. By fully optimizing your data connectivity, you can generate a positive domino effect that improves the performance of your organization across the board. Apps can be snappier with decreased load times, improving user experience. Data can be accessed and analyzed faster, meaning you can act on the latest insights quicker for better decision making. Anytime, anywhere connectivity gives you the ability and the agility to adjust on the fly to meet continually changing customer needs and fluctuating marketplace demands.
