Digital transformation is everywhere. It's in the networks of consumer data that tell a story of who we are and how we behave. It's in the bank branch or insurance agency that moves and shifts towards providing financial products through an online customer experience. It's in the palm of our hands as we text, swipe, and tap our way to faster answers and instant gratification.
Digital transformation is everywhere, and in order for businesses to benefit and stay competitive, they must join the advanced analytics game. Businesses will feel the biggest benefit and impact when they utilize big data, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and digital decisioning technology to do the following:
– Automate operational decisions in real time with confidence
– Digitally transform their operations to not only impact business performance, but also, improve the customer experience

As data analytics becomes more embedded within organizations, as an enterprise business practice, the methods and principles of agile processes must also be employed.
Agile includes DataOps, which refers to the tight coupling of data science model-building and model deployment. Agile can also refer to the rapid integration of new data sets into your big data environment for "zero-day" discovery, insights, and actionable intelligence.
The Data Lake is an advantageous approach to implementing an agile data environment, primarily because of its focus on "schema-on-read", thereby skipping the laborious, time-consuming, and fragile process of database modeling, refactoring, and re-indexing every time a new data set is ingested.
Another huge advantage of the data lake approach is the ability to annotate data sets and data granules with intelligent, searchable, reusable, flexible, user-generated, semantic, and contextual metatags. This tag layer makes your data "smart" -- and that makes your agile big data environment smart also!
