Speeding from Data to Insight in Financial Services

Book Description

As in many industries, financial services companies are in the midst of digital transformation to deal with the increasing deluge of data. Simply being able to access data is no longer good enough; companies need to find actionable insight from data early and often if they’re to keep up. The key is finding the right tools. Even established financial services firms can move swiftly, decisively, and agilely when they make well-reasoned choices.



This ebook examines the current data analytics tools landscape, and discusses the barriers financial companies often face when adopting them. In the process, you’ll explore Apache Kylin, an open source technology that eBay created to address many of those challenges. You’ll also explore stories and best practices from organizations using an enterprise-class version of Kylin from Kyligence Inc.
