Big Data Platform for Automotive: Data Lake

Uncover automotive market insights faster. Explore, access, and coalesce our data, your data, and third-party data on a centralized, cloud-based platform.

Data volumes are increasing at an exponential rate, and exceptional low storage costs are enabling automotive businesses to capture massive quantities of data in a cost-effective manner. As the volume and variety of available data grows, firms have unparalleled opportunities to gain new strategic insights.

However, the transformation of data into knowledge is challenging. The variety of data types and formats, as well as the complexity of the structures, means that data must be interpreted before it can be used effectively. To gain valuable information, specialists are needed, and the so-called "time-to-value challenge" sees businesses wrestle with datasets for months before extracting actionable intelligence.
