Data Analytics can be a game changer for businesses
Accion's Big Data team has built several “packaged” solutions to automate the deployment and support of Hadoop environments. The skillful team at Accion developed a CRM Analytic tool to analyze call-center logs for a leading telecom firm. With a strong foundation of Linux administration, the team was able to handle installing, configuring, maintaining, monitoring and troubleshooting of Hadoop clusters.
"Data Analytics can be a game changer for businesses. However, the diversity of sources of data, lack of consistency of data definition and lack of ownership of data quality hasstalled many data analytics projects. Through Accion team’s experience of delivering hundreds of projects in range of industries, functional areas and technology platforms – organizations can finally realize the value of data without reinvesting the wheel or loosing valuable time," says Doshi.
Accion labs see Big Data initiative to continue to grow as more companies adopt the techniques and tools employed for managing and leveraging their data assets. "Big Data solutions have been one of the strongest offerings provided by Accion labs from past three years. It has been contributing to the large portion of the company’s revenue and Accion Labs will continue to focus on Hadoop, NoSQL Databases and advanced search technologies and other Big Data core technologies," iterates Doshi. The company envisions partnering with more upcoming clients and building software products for the next generation as well.
