According to the technology giant, Return on Information is the value organisations generate from their investments in information solutions, services and resources by gaining insight from their data to make better and quicker decisions.
Muhammed Omar, Pre-Sales Manager, Software, South Africa HP, said: “Over the next several years, Return on Information will become the single most important measure of success for organisations.
“HP will continue to invest in and develop solutions and services that harness the volume, diversity and unpredictability of information to deliver real value to our clients.”
Big data is essentially structured data, from traditional databases. Unstructured data consistsn of images, videos, emails, texts and more. Semi structured data is collected from sensors and machines. These are all factors in the challenge that organisations are facing today.
HP believes with new solutions from its subsidiaries, Autonomy and HP Vertica, along with new HP Converged Infrastructure solutions and their services expertise, businesses and governments will be able to extract value from their structured, semi structured and unstructured information.
