Data Management

In today’s data-driven world, an overload of information can easily clog the gears that propel you forward. Collecting and integrating data from multiple sources and integrating them into a workable form, helps you to work smarter. Data Head Solutions® guides you into understanding, controlling, and maximizing the potentially valuable information.

What does Data Movement mean?

Data movement is exactly what it sounds like – it is integrating data from multiple sources into one place (this is called a data lake or a data warehouse) so that you can use your data to its fullest potential. The process of moving data to a secondary warehouse cleanses it of duplicate and unneeded entries so you are getting only the most important information you need to make business decisions.

What are the benefits?

  • Eliminate Duplicate Data Entry – The process of data movement is to first analyze the data, remove redundancies and noise, store all of the important data in a data lake, then use the relevant data to provide insights that benefit your company.
  • Aggregate Data for Analysis – Data lakes often uncover hidden insights because they combine data sets from multiple sources into a new, clean data set that gives the full picture of how a business is operating. For example, your business may be generating leads from a phone number on your business card, a form on their website, or a trade show event every other month. Each of these methods is tracked differently and probably performs differently. By combining insights from each source to one data set, you can determine which convert leads the best, which is cheapest to conduct, and which you can focus less time on.

What is the difference between a data lake and a data warehouse?

Both a data warehouse and data lake store your data, but the main difference is when that data is organized and analyzed. Raw and unstructured data goes into a data lake, and then data can be selected and organized as needed. A data warehouse processes the information and organizes it into a single schema before it is stored. Then, when data is pulled, the analysis is done on the cleansed data in the warehouse.

What are the benefits?

  • Complete access to all of your data
  • View, slice-and-dice, export, modify, and import your database
  • Create custom reports, applications, dashboards, or data visualizations
  • Combine data with any other ODBC compliant data sources such as SQL, Excel, MySQL, Oracle, etc.
