Big Data Applications Team to deliver modern solutions to handle Big Data and support complex data integration initiatives
ATLANTA, GA – November 7, 2013
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure, cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, today announced the expansion of its solutions team with the unveiling of the Big Data Applications Team. The team is a specialized, think tank group led by Robert Fox, vice president of application development at Liaison. Comprised of some of the brightest minds in the industry, the newly founded team will focus on advancing Liaison’s best-of-breed integration and data management platform by modernizing data virtualization and data management to enable better solutions around data analytics, Master Data Management (MDM) and vertical use cases, such as clinical data solutions.
According to IDC, the global Big Data technology and services market is expected to grow at a 31.7 percent compound annual growth rate, reaching $23.8 billion in 2016. With Big Data integration projects on the rise, Liaison recognized the need to create a specialized, expert support team to complement its solutions and address increasingly complex Big Data challenges. Liaison’s Big Data Applications Team is able to support platforms like Hadoop, while simultaneously pushing the limits of what is possible with Big Data by hyper-accelerating innovation. Backed by years of experience, Liaison’s team of service and integration specialists look to transform the company’s technology and provide the insight necessary to help move customers into the future.
“One of the key traits and toughest challenges of Big Data is velocity,” said Fox. “Data grows at such a fast rate that it is essential to dedicate the right resources to identify and solve business needs. Only by doing so can you create solutions that will keep up with market demands. The goal of the Big Data Applications Team is to keep pace with market changes by innovating customer services and applications in coordination with Liaison’s architecture and platform as our foundation.”
The genesis behind the Big Data Applications Team lies in Liaison’s ongoing success in helping enterprises address Big Data challenges. A recent example of this is Liaison’s work with a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company. The corporation chose Liaison to tackle a variety of integration challenges and industry changes by implementing the latest in Big Data management technologies – the Liaison Cloud Integration Platform. Upon deployment of the solution, the enterprise was able to leverage the Liaison Cloud Integration Platform to provide sales and marketing teams with the right information to better understand customers, identify buying influencers and analyze buying behaviors. With this actionable insight, the company could now implement targeted marketing campaigns, increase customer relationship communications, develop new product introductions and make improvements to its website for increased interaction with visitors. Ultimately, the Big Data technology implementation allowed the enterprise to fully understand it customers. As a result, the company was better able to anticipate customer expectations and proactively provide solutions to fulfill customer needs.
Through the efforts of the Big Data Applications Team, Liaison customers will be able to do more for their business. The delivery of modern solutions will provide new approaches for handling Big Data and allow customers to realize benefits for specific use cases that would otherwise be unattainable using traditional means. Many use cases are generally hampered by lack of storage, inability to handle data transmission volumes, inability to process data in a reasonable timeframe, or inexperience working with semi-structured or unstructured data. With Liaison, customers can overcome these Big Data hurdles by being empowering with clean, harmonized data that can be easily consumed by applications to provide quality analytics. As the industry continues to change, the Big Data Applications Team will guide Liaison in the continued maturation and refinement of its Big Data technology platform.
