Pragmatic Works participated in the US CIO Summit in Redmond, WA on May 20th, 2014 as a key presenter on Parallel Data Warehouse and Big Data. The CIO Summit is a nationwide conference designed with the role of the Chief Information Officer in mind, and built to address ways to assist them in becoming a business leader and visionary with new ideas to create high revenue streams and profit growth for their organizations.
With today’s constantly evolving economic landscape, it is pivotal for businesses to stay on the cutting edge of technology. Adam Jorgensen, President of Consulting for Pragmatic Works, co-presented a session with Aaron Mills, President of Mid-Market division for Hewlett-Packard (HP), on how Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) and Big Data can dramatically accelerate business, especially for mid-market companies. Mid-market companies typically are small enough to have the necessary agility to adapt to these technologies, are trying to achieve rapid growth and have the funding to invest in a solution that will provide them with avenues to achieve both growth and increased capital, making them ideal candidates for both PDW and Big Data solutions.
Jorgensen spoke in depth about a specific use case Pragmatic Works saw with CROSSMARK, a sales and marketing company focused on the consumer goods industry. Pragmatic Works partnered with Microsoft to implement a PDW solution at Crossmark, “We couldn’t have deployed this kind of BI solution in such a short amount of time without the help of Pragmatic Works and our Microsoft Services consultant,” stated Kevin Brooks, Database Manager at CROSSMARK. The benefits they saw from this data warehouse upgrade were immediate and immense, allowing CROSSMARK to build their reports over 50 times faster than on their previous system.
The CIO Summit presentation was very well attended, with over 300 people in the room. “Seeing so many CIO’s driving for the modernization of their firm’s data properties and strategy was energizing. They were excited by the solutions we’re deploying using the latest in Microsoft, HP and industry technology to bring the enterprise and line of business goals into alignment. That type of excitement it what’s translating into the wave of activity we are seeing in the marketplace,” stated Jorgensen.
