The significance of data analytics for enterprises cannot be overstated. Making real-time decisions based on data insights has become a game-changer, enabling businesses to optimize performance, maximize profits, and make strategically-guided decisions.

According to a recent analysis, the big data analytics market has surged to $103 billion in 2023. With organizations consistently generating massive volumes of data annually, it is projected that the global data created, stored, and consumed will exceed 180 zettabytes by 2025.

However, effectively keeping up with the continuous data analytics demands requires a strategic approach and specialized expertise. This is where managed services play a crucial role.

Like a skilled conductor leading an orchestra, a managed services partner can orchestrate the complex symphony of data analytics, helping enterprises navigate challenges, extract valuable insights, and drive success.

Challenges Faced by Infrastructure and Solution Management Teams

Infrastructure and solution management teams face various challenges when managing the demands of continuous data analytics and maintaining data analytics platforms. These challenges are associated with the following:

1. Scalability

As data volumes and analytics requirements grow, infrastructure and solution management teams must ensure that the data analytics platforms can scale effectively to handle increasing workloads. Scaling infrastructure, managing storage, and optimizing processing power is essential to meet growing demands — facets that are usually challenging to accommodate.

2. Data Quality and Integration

Ensuring data quality and integrating data from various sources pose significant challenges. Infrastructure and solution management teams need to establish robust data governance practices, implement data cleansing and transformation processes, and ensure seamless integration across diverse data sets.

3. Performance Optimization

Data analytics platforms require constant performance monitoring and optimization to deliver fast and accurate insights. Therefore, infrastructure and solution management teams become responsible for fine-tuning hardware, software configurations, and database performance to maintain optimal system responsiveness.

4. Security and Compliance

Protecting sensitive data and ensuring compliance with industry regulations are critical concerns. Therefore, enterprises must undertake the arduous task of:

  • Implementing robust security measures
  • Establishing access controls
  • Encrypting data
  • Regularly performing security audits to safeguard data and maintain compliance

5. System Maintenance and Upgrades

Data analytics platforms require regular maintenance and updates to ensure smooth operations and incorporate new features. As a result, enterprise teams are tasked to carefully plan and execute system upgrades, conduct testing, and manage version control while minimizing disruption to ongoing analytics activities.

6. Skills and Resources

Building and maintaining a skilled team capable of managing complex data analytics platforms can be challenging. Enterprises usually have to invest in training and development programs to ensure their staff possesses the necessary expertise to handle evolving technologies and challenges. And the challenge continues. According to a PwC survey of over 4,000 organizations, one of the biggest workforce-related challenges is identifying the skills workers need to support technological evolution.
