Big Data Platform for Maritime & Trade: Data Lake

Uncover Maritime & Trade insights faster. Explore, access, and coalesce our data, your data, and third-party data on a centralised, cloud-based platform.

Data volumes are increasing at an exponential rate, and exceptional low storage costs are enabling businesses to capture massive quantities of data in a cost-effective manner. As the volume and variety of available data grows, firms with interests in maritime & trade 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.

The IHS Markit Data Lake helps you uncover business insights faster, by exploring, accessing and coalescing our data, your data and third-party data on a single, cloud-based platform. The platform is populated with over 1,500 IHS Markit datasets from diverse industries, including financial services, automotive, maritime, energy & natural resources, curated into more than 350 data packages to expedite time-to-value.
