Digital transformation is not an option. It is a path that everyone must go, regardless of the size of the industry or organization. All organizations, regardless of whether they are companies or governments, need to move more agilely and keep pace with the ever-increasing expectations of users. But when it comes to action, if there’s one thing that makes the difference between organizations, it’s data.

All organizations agree that first and second place depend on how they handle data, the material of innovation, but data management and utilization is not an easy task. A poor strategy can lead to problems of increased cost and complexity. So, how to reduce trial and error? Let’s take a look at 5 tips from Cloudera.

Five Tips for Success in Data-Driven Transformation

The first is to focus on people. It is easy to miss the point if you only look at the efficiency in terms of technology and organization. It is people who find value in data, after all. Therefore, it is important to make it easier for more people to access and use data.

The second is to start small and grow big. If you start a project with too ambitious goals from the beginning, in all probability, you will not survive to production. You should start by selecting a problem that is both noticeable and easy to solve. It is realistic to set big goals while repeating small successes.

The third is to keep your data and pipelines clean. When garbage enters, it is natural to get garbage. It is essential to clean the data well and keep the data pipeline neatly organized. The fourth is to keep even the smallest data without missing it. As you follow the customer journey, a myriad of small pieces of data arise. The habit of taking care of every little thing helps in data analysis, machine learning (ML) model training, and also in establishing governance for compliance with various regulations.

A fifth tip is to go hybrid. A hybrid data cloud strategy is the most realistic and effective way to secure a flexible, secure, and robust integration platform. Of these five tips, let’s dive deeper into the hybrid data cloud.

What is a hybrid data cloud?

The reason for recommending a hybrid data cloud is simple. This is because once applications are built in a single platform environment, they can run anywhere on-premises, in hybrids, or in public clouds. Hybrid data clouds give organizations the power of unlimited choice. Take Cloudera Hybrid Data Cloud Platform as an example.

By building a hybrid data cloud platform, you can unify data and workload management into a single control environment. This gives you the flexibility to collect the data you need for different business purposes, analyze it using a variety of data sets, and use it as a material for AI services. There is also the security advantage of an integrated platform. This is because security policies and governance can be maintained consistently from on-premises to the cloud. When all these benefits come together, organizations can achieve unprecedented agility. Organizations can quickly build data pipelines while quickly implementing and deploying a variety of applications. In this process, the organization can make the optimal choice. Once written, applications can be serviced anywhere, so you can process data and run workloads in the most favorable environment in consideration of cost and performance.

A Data-Driven Digital Transformation Journey Through a Customer Story

We looked at examples of data-driven digital transformation in real business settings. OVO, which provides payment services in Indonesia, is always interested in providing better services than its competitors at a time when the competition in the simple payment market is hot anywhere in the world.

One of them is communication with customers. OVO goes beyond simple real-time communication and finds a way to tailor-made new experiences and satisfaction to customers by analyzing numerous data accumulated through the customer journey in real time and using customer records to provide AI-based services. And OVO developed an application called Uncover. Although the personalized communication and suggestions provided by the application may seem straightforward, OVO must process tens of millions of customer records per day in real time. To facilitate this task, OVO leveraged the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP). By taking advantage of the hybrid data cloud platform provided by CDP, OVO increased its revenue by more than 16% in just six months after deploying the Uncover application.

LG U+ solved the problem of smooth expansion with Cloudera’s solution. As the number of customers increases and services become more diversified, LG U+ began to ponder how to more effectively manage the exponentially increasing data volume. This was not simply a matter of expanding the infrastructure for data storage. A more efficient analysis was needed, and an extension was needed to take into account security and compliance (governance), which must always be a prerequisite. LG U+ has applied Impala and Kudu through Cloudera to provide flexible and scalable data storage and fast analysis foundations. The platform is powerful enough to process 1 billion transactions in 40 seconds. By using this, LG U+ is able to provide better customer experience and satisfaction while gaining new insights from data.

Reduce the risk of your hybrid journey

As we saw earlier, enterprise data platforms are evolving to a new level. And that direction is towards hybrids. Here are five tips for your organization’s digital transformation that will help you reduce the risks you face on your hybrid journey.
