GoodData Unveils New Strategy to Monetize Big Data

Introduces BizData Monetization, a New Approach That Enables Companies to Unlock Revenue, Profit and Business Performance From Big Data

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/10/12 -- Today, GoodData® unveiled BizData Monetization (BDM), a new strategy for empowering businesses to find sources of revenue and profit from Big Data. GoodData is the leading maker of cloud-based analytics business mashups and platform, enabling companies of any size to convert data into business advantage.

The Rise of BizData
The rapid growth of cloud, social and mobile computing has created a new class of Big Data that is relevant to business, called BizData. According to IDC, the volume of digital content this year will rise to 2.7 zettabytes (equivalent to 2.7 billion terabytes), including video, images, social media events and Web-enabled workloads. IDC describes this data as rich in information but difficult to process and analyze.(1).

Many companies struggle to glean actionable insight from the wealth of BizData they have collected and stored, as existing business intelligence systems have failed to deliver on their promise.

"Today, the difference between success and failure is the ability to monetize a new class of data," said Roman Stanek, founder and CEO of GoodData. "It's ironic that, despite billions of dollars spent on business intelligence systems, we are still data-bankrupt. BizData Monetization will turn data into powerful insights and a revenue-generating source, completely revolutionizing how we think of and leverage data."

GoodData's BDM strategy includes three core components:

  • BashMarketplace™, a library of pre-built business analytics mashups called GoodData Bashes™;
  • BizData Monetization Platform, an end-to-end, cloud-based analytics platform;
  • Powered By, an extensive partner ecosystem designed to extend BizData monetization across industries and functions.

BizData Monetization Platform

The foundation of GoodData's BDM strategy is its BizData Monetization platform as a service. It is the first end-to-end, scalable platform that delivers the complete stack of BizData integration, modeling and visualization, securely in the cloud.

The GoodData platform gives companies an easy and inexpensive way to collect, store and analyze structured and unstructured BizData across information silos.

"GoodData's BizData Monetization Platform enables our customers to gain insight into community engagement that identifies intent, such as product interest by prospects," said Jeff Nolan VP Business Development at Get Satisfaction. "Our customers can now leverage the Get Satisfaction Community Health Analytics 2.0 powered by GoodData to easily identify product interest, champions and leverage that insight to increase customer acquisition and deliver better customer service."

GoodData BashMarketplace

The GoodData BashMarketplace allows partners and customers to create and access Bashes, business mashups, for their specific business needs. Bashes, built on GoodData's leading BizData Monetization platform, include integrations, reports, analytics, key performance indicators and best practices rolled into a visually stunning user experience.

Today, GoodData offers three new Bashes: the GoodMarketing Bash™, analyzing marketing's revenue contribution; the GoodSales Bash™, managing sales pipeline and performance; and the GoodSubscription Bash™, optimizing customer engagement and revenue impact.

Powered By Partner Network
GoodData's Powered By partner network extends Bashes to a broader ecosystem. Partners are now able to build their own Bashes for their customers and meet their particular vertical or functional business needs. Given that partner Bashes run on the GoodData platform, they offer the same level of integration as GoodData's pre-built ones.

GoodData and its growing partner network will release additional Bashes in the coming months.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
"IBM is really all in on blockchain. We take a look at sort of the history of blockchain ledger technologies.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters.

In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
