IIS architects and implements business critical projects replacing traditional database technology, the “old elephants” as Turing Award winner Michael Stonebraker calls them, with a big data platform and tools that are designed for the analysis of terabytes and petabytes of data. Also, such technologies reduce infrastructure and maintenance costs of these databases designed in the 80’s, like Oracle or DB2, improving productivity of existing staff. Briefly describing how IIS makes a difference with its solutions, Iacone says, “An organization can make real progress within minutes or an hour without having to wait. It is similar to using a cell phone to look up an answer rather than waiting to look it on an encyclopedia. With current systems, data scientists no longer need tens of hours but only seconds or minutes to answer queries.”Having had the advantage of exploring and examining data from multiple disparate sources, IIS’s Chief Data Scientist,Don Vilen notes, “We build an alignment between IT and business leaders, providing customers the agility to meet the spikes of Big Data.”
