    • Managing cloud analytics with hybrid infrastructure

    • Cloud analytics have transformed business intelligence, providing the applications, processing power and collaboration tools to extract value from vast data sets. Typically offered as public cloud services, cloud analytics deliver insight on everything from markets and opportunities to operations and performance.

      Despite its benefits, cloud analytics pose significant challenges for IT teams. As enterprises adopt a growing number of enterprise cloud solutions and environments, the task of managing them can become extraordinarily complicated.

      Dell Technologies provides a solution – a set of cloud infrastructure products that simplify management of hybrid cloud environments, providing IT teams with a common set of tools to manage cloud analytics platforms and other cloud services along with public, private and edge cloud resources.

    • The benefits of cloud analytics

    • Cloud analytics are services accessed via the Internet that provides business intelligence or data analytics with some portion of processing implemented in the cloud. Like other cloud services, cloud analytics are highly scalable, allowing companies to access the exact amount of resources they need for a given workload at any time.

      Cloud analytics services typically include:

      • Data sources, including information from a wide variety of internal data points or data access from third-party sources.
      • Data models that interpret and standardize how data points are connected.
      • Applications for processing data as it enters a data store or warehouse.
      • Raw computing power needed to ingest, clean, analyze and manipulate data at scale.
      • Analytic models that are used to predict outcomes.
      • Data storage solutions that enable implementation of cloud analytics architecture.

      With cloud analytics solutions, enterprises can:

      • Aggregate data from many disparate sources.
      • Provide easy access to users and stakeholders.
      • Share and collaborate on analytics or easily.
      • Reduce the cost of managing analytics by eliminating the need to purchase, install, manage and upgrade analytics infrastructure on premises. 
      • Scale analytics capabilities easily as business needs dictate.

      While cloud analytics offer tremendous advantages, managing cloud analytics platforms presents significant challenges. IT teams today are tasked with managing a broad range of cloud environments and moving cloud workloads between them. Each cloud technology has its own management framework and a unique processes. Lacking a common set of management tools across cloud offerings, IT teams can quickly become overwhelmed by the complexity of constantly switching between platforms. Migrating workloads becomes more time-consuming and risk-prone.

      Hybrid cloud environments offer a solution by providing a consistent management experience across public, private and edge cloud resources as well as services like cloud analytics. The key is finding a platform that can deliver the tools and services for successful hybrid cloud deployment. That’s where Dell Technologies Cloud provides tremendous value.
