It’s well-known that today’s Digital Transformation landscape is extremely competitive & complex. As volatile business scenarios put pressure to get immediate answers from data, recognizably, many organisations still present a great analytic divide. And more often than not, analysts end up working with a great number of data sources and ineffective manual procedures. This fragmentation leads to an unnecessary loss of time and resources.
Traditional Architecture’s lack of agility, speed, and scalability creates an immovable bottleneck. We can all recognize that not every organisation is well-versed in digital skills in their entirety. However, changing the focus from linearity to flexibility, and allowing teams to easily access the tools that will adapt to their business needs, paves the way for empowering them. Whether is a team of 100, 10, or 1.
The SALT stack (Snowflake, Alteryx & Tableau) is a seamless, modern, analytics combination of technologies. It allows any organization to combinate them for a given use case and allowing them to go from linear technology to a flexible & scalable one.
As a response to putting the business objectives first, SALT is capable of scaling the compute when needed, meaning that organisations can get answers faster or meet demands at peak times, avoiding having an infrastructure to meet peak times that only occur a few times a year. Rather than other types of digital adoptions, the SALT stack is meant to empower analytic teams to deliver real business outcomes, however small or big that team is.
Legacy infrastructure is by nature inefficient and inflexible, which creates a lot of wasted effort and duplicated resources.
Failure rates are high, as are human errors, largely because systems have become sprawling and disorganised over time. This also makes governance and security difficult to maintain.
Balancing IT Performance and Business Strategy
All these factors simultaneously affect IT performance over time. Meanwhile, data volumes continue to increase, which only compounds the problems.
Eventually, every available IT resource is taken up just to keep things running, which prevents any proper time being spent on more important, business-critical tasks like strategic planning.
Upgrading technology is not an option as it’s too time-consuming, disruptive and expensive. So, these issues just perpetuate, with no apparent long-term solution.
The race to ROI can be surprisingly expensive
In the face of a fast-paced technology sector, with solutions constantly evolving and an emphasis on driving value from data, there is understandably a great deal of pressure on businesses to move with the times. This is driving competitive advantage; however, as organisations rush to achieve these ambitious objectives, they frequently expose a damaging data skills gap in their workforce – which prevents them from getting where they want to be.
As a result, the majority of Digital Transformation programs do not deliver true ROI but instead burn through budgets. What’s more, the single biggest reason for failure is typically a lack of employee engagement and adoption. People either aren’t willing to change, or don’t believe in the vision enough to make the leap. It follows, then, that those organisations which best overcome this dilemma will fare best. To succeed, they must be able to learn continuously and adapt quickly. As a consequence, this approach will help them attract the best and most skilled talent, while keeping employees incentivised.
How can you ensure you’re one of them?
Introducing SALT: software for successful digital transformation
SALT represents a triumvirate of complementary technologies (Snowflake, Alteryx and Tableau), which work together to give you the foundation, tools, and performance to reach your transformation goals. These three technologies complement each either, therefore it’s easy to work with them in combination.
SALT focuses on diminishing obstacles & speeding up the access to data insights, paving the way for innovation and delivering real business impacts.
