Accelerating Patient-Centric Analytics with Unified Patient Records

Infographic: The Agile Analytics Life Cycle

Wondering if you should leverage a data lake? Trying to improve the state of data analytics in your organization?

As this month’s infographic depicts, one of the main advantages of the data lake is the acceleration of advanced analytics capabilities.

After you ingest your raw information, including structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data into the lake, you’re able to transform it for querying and analytics. Next, provide self-service analytics for your users so they can analyse the data they need using the tools of their choice. Your users can then collaborate on analytics, sharing their analytic models with the community.
