Cloud Data Platform

What is a cloud data platform? 

A cloud data platform facilitates the migration of an organization’s data ecosystem and enterprise data to the cloud and away from traditional on-premises data centers or warehouses. For some organizations, a cloud data platform can take the form of multi-cloud environments.

What are the business benefits of a cloud data platform?

Benefits of a cloud data platform include its ability to:

  • Rapidly ingest structured and unstructured data to empower analytics.
  • Scale quickly and easily as data and analytics needs evolve.
  • Facilitate creation of a data lake to democratize data and share it anywhere and anytime, among both onsite and remote users. 
  • Simplify IT operating environments and reduce costly licenses and maintenance that eat up IT budgets. 
  • Move from a capital expense (capex) to an operating expense (opex); you pay only for the services you use, making it less costly and more flexible than an on-premises data center.
  • Enable businesses to reexamine data processes and data privacy methodologies.
  • Virtually eliminate equipment downtime due to maintenance, damage or theft.
