Azure big data and analytics services deliver better experiences and make better decisions by analyzing massive amounts of data in real time. Get the insight you need to deliver intelligent actions that improve customer engagement, increase revenue and lower costs.

Bring together all of the data you need

Data volumes are exploding—from traditional point-of-sale systems and e-commerce websites to new customer sentiment sources like Twitter and IoT sensors that stream data in real time using Apache Hadoop and Spark. By analyzing a diverse dataset from the start, you will make more informed decisions that are predictive and holistic rather than reactive and disconnected.

Hold onto your most valuable asset—big data

Keep your organization’s data indefinitely, no matter the size. Instead of making cost tradeoffs on what data to hold onto, retain your data to meet regulatory and company standards at affordable prices—now possible with Hadoop and Spark technologies and the cloud.

Deliver a personalized experience to customers

Different people want different experiences. Delight your customers with a personalized experience that changes based on their behavior, even offering recommended products that include dynamic discounts for a personalized shopping experience. Give suppliers a predictive list of things to purchase based on current order information and historical customer data.

Create a more cost-effective supply chain

Integrate big data from across the enterprise value chain and use advanced analytics in real time to optimize supply-side performance and save money. Embrace proactive measures with a live view into your supply chain—assess inventory levels, predict product fulfillment needs and identify potential backlog issues.

Be more efficient in everything you do

Uncover insights buried in your data to optimize the way you do business. Whether organizing human resources, managing supply chains or forecasting staff and customer needs, understanding the factors that affect operational efficiency is essential to streamlining your business.
