Big data is increasingly becoming an integral part of technology deployment in most organisations. Big data should not only be processed and analysed, it should also be interpreted and projected just as well. And that is what’s keeping businesses from charging ahead and taking the lead for effective data interpretation and analysis.
Your business can benefit significantly if you take into consideration two basic and interdependent aspects of big data and analytics:
Inward Big Data and Analytics
Where you leverage big data to streamline internal operations, rationalise skill distribution, and optimise budget spends.
Outward Big Data and Analytics
Where you leverage big data to understand customer behaviour and requirements, and market sentiment and trends.

Asset TaggingHaving your IT manually apply asset tags to your organisation’s computers is a time-consuming and expensive process. However, Lenovo Asset Tagging removes this burden and reduces your costs by having Lenovo apply your asset tag during manufacturing.
Deployment Automation ServicesMany IT infrastructure leaders are creating operational efficiencies by simplifying IT deployment and shortening provisioning time. Lenovo fulfills this strategic vision by enabling organisations to increase capacity through shifting specialised technical activities – such as image design and delivery – to hardware manufacturing.
First Boot ServicesBefore your new PCs can be put to use, your technicians need to perform final 'fast boot' configuration tasks. Performed in-house, these tasks can often take your IT staff between 1 and 2 hours. However, with Lenovo First Boot, you can automate the processes for any image type and move the activities into Lenovo manufacturing. As a result, you save time, resources, and costs - right from the start.
Smart ImageManage multiple images and drivers, as well as tackle driver installation issues with Lenovo’s Smart Image that gives you compatibility across all Lenovo-based hardware platforms. It combines Lenovo hardware and your Windows 7/8 image in a single, dynamic imaging solution that manages driver maintenance. As a result, your image maintenance costs can be reduced significantly.
OS enabled MDMWindows 10 Pro provides a consistent set of configurations across device form factors through a common MDM layer. Windows MDM shows users the policies, settings, and apps that are managed by their organisation. This lowers help desk calls and allows administrators to easily troubleshoot issues. MDM can implement policies on devices even when users are not active. If a device is offline or asleep, Windows Notification Services delivers policy updates when it is back online.
Departmental interoperability is one of the biggest things to consider while establishing big data solutions because without the access of complete data, even the best of big data solutions cannot yield business benefits.
