Big data and its analysis and interpretation are a major focus in businesses of all sizes. While the classical measurement of big data was solely in terms of its volume, businesses have come to realize that variety, as well as velocity, can be crucial measurement parameters too. With businesses becoming flooded with data arriving at very high speed from multiple sources, the prime issue of big data is not just processing the data but gaining useful insights from it. Unfortunately, most business intelligence tools being outdated and not optimized to handle big data did not prove to be very useful in analyzing the large data volumes for getting superior insights into customer behavior and engagement, increasing generation and quality of leads, optimizing operations, spotting new revenue sources and fraud protection.
Salesforce Wave Analytics Cloud
It is against the background of increasing frustration of Salesforce customers not being able to leverage the power of big data that Salesforce Wave Analytics Cloud was launched. The package, featuring a frontend of data analysis,took years of development and was initially ported only to Salesforce but now can work with different third-party data apps. Even though it faced a lot of skepticism by experts, the entry of Salesforce into business intelligence (BI) has since then transformed the way big data was analyzed. The buzz has only intensified with the company joining hands with leaders in big data like Cloudera, Hortonworks, Google, Informatica, New Relic, and Trifacta. With its rich command set, Salesforce DX has already become a favorite with open source developers.
