To rapidly establish and prove the value of a data lake on AWS.

Spotting process anomalies, identifying creeping cost or falling sales trends, even predicting what might happen next, none of this is possible when the access to data is incumbered by siloed platforms and legacy approaches. However, by combining the agile approaches and brain power of Inawisdom, with the power and flexibility of the AWS cloud, data can suddenly become a powerful set of information and a customer's number one business asset.

This rapid engagement leverages Inawisdom's proven skills and experience in data and analytics. Following a jointly identified key use case, Inawisdom selects and extracts the data from source systems into a single secure platform, runs intelligent data analysis and creates key visualizations. After just a few weeks, data driven decisions can be made to enable a clear and concise view of a customer's business.

Along with the rapid Proof of Value, Inawisdom's expert team will also draw out a robust path to production, and a business case for extending the platform, so customers can continue their journey to truly differentiating their businesses for long term success.

  • How it works
  • Spotting process anomalies, identifying creeping cost or falling sales trends, even predicting what might happen next, none of this is possible when the access to data is incumbered by siloed operational platforms and legacy approaches. Inawisdom rapidly creates a data lake to liberate the data that customers already hold and enable new insights into business performance.

    Initially Inawisdom works with customers to uncover the opportunities within their data and understand their requirements and priorities. Inawisdom leverages its accelerator tools to take the time, constraints and complexity out of data extraction, access and transformation that are the barriers to many organizations exploiting their data assets.

    Next, is the rapid provisioning of an Enterprise grade, production capable AWS Landing zone (or leveraging of customer's existing AWS accounts), built to AWS Well-Architected standards and including all the key security monitoring and alerting controls. Following this, the AWS services required for the Data Lake scenario are configured to meet a jointly agreed use case.

    Once the data is ingested, it is catalogued before sanitizing, structuring and enriching (the latter for both the data and the catalogue) as necessary to optimise reporting for the use case. Even as optimization for the use case takes place, the raw data remains available in the Lake, allowing it be exploited in other ways for new use cases in the future.

    Having quickly established the Data Lake, it is then proven via a set of visualizations. Best in class analytics are run to create intelligent dashboards that demonstrate the value in the data and a compelling business case for further expansion of the Data Lake is created.

    Finally, a path for successful productionization following the proof of value is provided so customers can take advantage of the engagement immediately and embed the project outcome in their operations for long term benefits.
