Adopt DataOps for increased success for data projects

EITN spoke to two Hitachi Vantara spokespersons at the sides of Hitachi NEXT 2019 in Las Vegas, exploring the data company’s flagship DataOps methodology for data management, and how it works with the LUMADA suite of data services and solutions.

Schubert explains how the adoption of Hitachi Vantara’s DataOps in windcraft farms allow for more accurate and agile supply chain management of wind-sourced energy

Lothar Schubert, LUMADA Technical Marketing says that on average, 80% of all data projects do not meet their objective for one good reason – because they are not implemented rapidly and accurately enough.

“Over the next 3 years, we will see that 75% of all data coming from the edge – IOT and mobile devices, etc. This onslaught of data makes it necessary for businesses to build new business models to stay competitive. But at the same time, they need to build these new business models very quickly but current manual processes for data project deployment is risky and brittle.

Hitachi Vantara’s DataOps enables a much higher level of automation in the deployment of all our LUMADA data services and solutions – This alone drastically improves success rates of data project for our customers.”

He adds industries in general need to be willing to break down silos and do away with data ‘hoarding’ in order for them to take full advantage of shared data for general advancement.

“In the data game, there needs to be policies for data sharing, as well as consideration of some risk taking and risk trade offs for overall industry movement towards improved revenue streams, improved productivity and customer satisfaction.”

Enhanced Hardware Supports LUMADA

Colin Gallagher, Vice President of Product Marketing shares that all of the data company’s hardware is built to support its DataOps adoption in the deployment of LUMADA software services.

Gallanghar adds says that the three characteristics of data necessary to improve its value are its availability reliability and accessibility.

“All of Hitachi Vantara hardware is optimized to ensure the credibility of three data characteristics in data. We talk about ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ data; for ‘hot’ data to happen, it means that that data needs to be at the right place and the right time.

Good, solid hardwareis necessary for this to happen – so hardware such as Hitachi Vantara’s enterprise storage (VSP 5000 series) and enhance Cloud portfolio are built to support the scale, security and speed for data to be truly valuable assets for our customers.’
