Analytics has a future in the cloud but what is Big data as a Service?

Big data-as-a-Service, or BDaaS, is a way of accessing analytics tools or information from an outside provider.

This can help organisations to gain insights into the meaning of data so that they can gain competitive advantage by improving customer relationships and business decision making.

BDaaS is designed to help businesses to free up resources by taking advantage of tools that are being provided by an outside organisation.

Like SaaS, BDaaS is a form of managed service that often relies upon cloud storage in order to provide data access to both the outside analytics company and the company that owns the information.

The area has gained increased interest over the past couple of years as companies have looked to leverage their data in a way that doesn't create costly overheads and rely upon a complex installation and integration process.

Simply put, BDaaS is an ideal way to remove the tech complexity from doing data analytics, leaving the business to focus on simply using the data insights to improve its performance.
