What is a Data Lake and Does Your Organisation Need One?

Digital businesses are awash with many types of internal and external data.

But where does it go?

These data sources are absolutely essential for business success, business efficiency, trends, record keeping and analysing user activity.

How can your organisation maintain secure, low-cost, flexible data infrastructure while keeping up with massive data volumes?

Businesses are pushing systems to their limits, which is why companies are flocking from traditional data warehouse management to a new system known as the ‘Data Lake’.

A Data Lake is a consolidated, centralised repository that houses various forms of data in their native format from disparate applications within a company. It allows data scientists to locate and analyse large quantities of data quickly and accurately.

Businesses that use Data Lakes can safely centralise their structured and unstructured data, enabling them to retrieve and utilise data to boost efficiency, scalability and accelerate their growth.

How Can Digitalisation Help My Business to Scale and Grow?

Digitalisation, (also known as digital transformation, business transformation or digital business transformation​) begins with identifying what is not working as effectively as it could within a business, then introducing necessary changes in the form of new processes, approaches, techniques and technologies to bring about improvement.​ It is driven by an understanding of how specific solutions can be applied across a business to bring about positive change. ​

Organisations undertake digitalisation to maximise their potential​, create additional value, increase efficiency, reduce costs, increase market share, improve customer satisfaction and boost revenue.

In your business’ case, digitalisation could be focused on outsourcing to maximise your knowledge, business potential and a successful delivery​. Perhaps it’s about developing and harnessing innovative technologies or creating intellectual property to grow your business, or maybe it is simply about being more efficient. 

Whatever your specific business needs and goals, all digital business transformation projects aim to ensure the best, most appropriate and effective processes and systems are implemented across an organisation in order to improve performance and support overall business strategy. 

Unsurprisingly, for most organisations this is not a straightforward process. The first step is to foster a culture that embraces and understands the need for change in an increasingly digital-first landscape.

What are the biggest challenges of ‘Digital Business Transformation’… and how do we avoid them?

Short answer, yes. Digital Transformation is essential to staying economically viable and disruptive in a digitalised world.

According to Forbes, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digitalisation by five years, which means that time is of the essence. If you still haven’t gone digital, you need to start thinking about it very soon. In 2022, digital business transformation is necessary both to survive and to thrive.

What are the key benefits of digital transformation?

Disrupt Or Be Disrupted In Digital Business Transformation

The digital-first economy is like a treadmill that keeps getting faster and faster. If you don’t keep up, you fall. The collapse of the video-rental service provider Blockbuster serves as a cautionary tale of exactly this. Blockbuster was once to movies what McDonald’s is to fast food. It was once a global empire in its field, with more than 9,000 branches internationally but is now a faded memory, having closed its remaining stores permanently in 2014.
