DATA QUALITY FOR GENERATING NEW REVENUE
The new services and the cloud or on-premises infrastructures have to be reliable and be set up for speed. The integration of hybrid architectures immediately poses the problem of data management, the true value for the company that, in exponential growth, demand collection, management and reclamation in Beta 80 guides the selection of the best-suited cloud architecture, the one specific for the market segment. And that’s not all: it improves management of the data as a company asset so that customers can design Cloud Integration & Data Management solutions that allow data quality to be managed and make new opportunities emerge.
DATA IN A CLOUD: SPEED AND VALUE
Make the infrastructure’s provisioning flexible and immediate in order to be able to use it as a service is a strong attraction for IT and for those called upon to choose between investment needs versus operating expenses. With Beta 80, integrating services in a cloud particularly leads to cutting entry costs in order to access new services and use new resources. Speed is increased so time for activating new services or for using new resources is reduced. The services are scalable in two directions, up and down. Compliance with regulations is guaranteed, starting from the imminent implementation of the GDPR.
½Reduce risk, comply with the sector regulations and develop new opportunities. Execute effective data governance processes, from data quality and definitions to policies for storing data for regulatory requirements.
½Revitalise the obsolete infrastructures and improve the understanding of the insured parties in order to strengthen growth and promote customer loyalty. Simplify the exchange of data between insurers and their distribution channels.
½Access reliable and verifiable data in observance of the regulations. Indeed, poor quality management of data leads to the creation of data that are just as poor quality, and imprecise reporting may lead to heavy fines that might expose the company to even greater financial risks.
½Get the most from profits and customer retention by offering a consistent and personalised customer experience. Guarantee the increase in analytics through reliable data on customers to offer a consistent and personalised multi-channel buying experience.
½GO LIVE: MS AZURE AND AMAZON WEB SERVICES
½The approach proposed by Beta 80 is not limited to addressing the best choice of cloud services based on the cost to benefit ratio.
Beta 80 works with the cloud platforms of reference (MS Azure and Amazon Web Services) by supporting the IT organisation in fine tuning and implementing the migration plan, which normally implies transition from a traditional infrastructure, centric or distributed, to a hybrid cloud type of configuration. To understand the cloud and to implement the best choice of service, Beta 80 follows the instructions of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a guidebook. They are summarised in five characteristics that offer outstanding benefits and performance: 1. on demand self-service; 2. resource pooling; 3. rapid elasticity; 4. measured service; 5. broad network access.
A plan for migrating to validated cloud services agreed upon with the IT functions and a careful assessment of the business needs and future scenarios which the company plans to address might help to resolve the “traditional rift” between IT and the business.
