Customers often ask what gives us the qualifications to work in their industry (industries like these, for example). They wonder whether we are able to able to handle the massive amounts and types of data they have available within their respective industries. Before we answer these questions, consider the following:
Picture in your mind the industry you work for. Do you think you have an ability to offer a unique set of skills of which no other industry can compare? Are your data sources large and unwieldy, seemingly more complex than other industries? Do you feel as though it takes a person within your industry to fully comprehend the data complexities you have to manage?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re wrong.
That’s not entirely true, you might not be completely wrong. But chances are that, while your data may be unique in some ways, it’s probably not harder or more complex than most other extant industries. Now you’re saying to yourself “Well, how do you know? You don’t work in my industry, do you?” But you might be surprised to find that we do work in your industry. In fact, we work in all industries.
When it comes to leveraging Big Data, breadth of skill set and ability are key to managing the overwhelmingly complex sets of data that you encounter in your industry. The problem many of these industries face is that they don’t actually have that breadth to work with. Yes, they may be leaders in their industry, but that still means they are held within the confines of only one industry, not knowing what else is out there that might work for them. That is where we come in. You see, our work in multitudinous industries (eCommerce, Healthcare, Finance, Manufacturing, and Life Sciences, to name a few) across myriad platforms has provided us with a vast breadth of skill sets and abilities that pertain not only to the industry in which they were acquired but to innumerable other industries as well.
Often times, problems that may seem unprecedented or distinct within one industry have more than likely already occurred along a similar vein within another industry. Since BigR.io works in multiple organizations across many industries, we have the ability to identify and solve many, many problems and compare them to many other problems experienced within those industries. Additionally, as Country Music Hall of Famer Kenny Rogers so eloquently explains, you got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away and know when to run. The same principle applies to solving Big Data problems. We have high-horsepower, high-caliber data scientists with good judgment who know when to bridge across organizations and industries, when to focus within the single industry, and when to find another solution entirely.
BigR.io‘s engineering team has extensive experience across many industries and thrives in new environments, and can help you with your company’s Big Data, Machine Learning, and Custom Software needs.
