Cloud solutions allow companies to embrace modern ways of thinking by harnessing the flexibility, speed and efficiencies of the internet. Cloud technology has unearthed new opportunities for businesses of all shapes and sizes by managing key computing services.
We’ve had our heads in the clouds for years (pun intended), partnering with clients across healthcare, retail, education, logistics and retail sectors to present business insights anywhere, on any device through the cloud.
We work with the leading cloud providers – Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform, enabling our clients to stand on the shoulders of giants.
Aginic are proud to be Elastic Partners. Elastic is the powerhouse behind common applications that our clients, and all of us use everyday. Hailed an uber? Bought something on Ebay? Looked at a new house on Domain? That’s all Elastic under the hood.
We realise that not all client data is highly structured, transactional, defined tables. Data can be audit logs, text, documents. This information is off-limits from traditional BI tools, which require rows of data to analyse to return results. Elastic unlocks this for Aginic and it’s clients.
The indexing engine of Elastic allows us to use a familiar google search to instantly identify records across billions of data points. We can then visualise that information in new ways, such as graph analytics – allowing us to identify connections between data points through their level of connectedness to other records. True unstructured search and analysis gives a blank canvas for our clients to uncover previously hidden insights.
Aginic is proud to announce our recent partnership with Snowflake, a leading cloud-first data warehouse product, to compliment our services in bringing your data to life – from large, complex back-end databases through to actionable business insights.
Snowflake has been specifically designed to support data analytics solutions with their scalable approach to storage and computation, meaning we can spin-up or down as required by the end-users (both in terms of amount of data and the computation that goes on under the hood). A focus on useability, particular in their zero-management approach to administration, minimises the time spent on BAU house-keeping to focus on the important part: using the data.
Aginic are excited to work with Snowflake and continue to bring simple, elegant and innovative end-to-end data solutions to our clients.
Microsoft’s Azure Platform is a leading cloud vendor with a strong product offering in the Data and AI space. Aginic, as a certified Gold Data & AI Microsoft Partner, is on the leading edge of their product, implementing Enterprise wide data environments for some of Australia’s largest organisations.
We have seen tremendous growth in the cloud space over the past 18 months (especially for Microsoft Azure). This is down to the cost effectiveness of cloud platforms and ability for organisations to access computing power on an as needs basis, scaling analytics in peak times and winding back services when not required.
We love the continuous innovation that Microsoft Azure undertake, this includes the Cognitive Services that perform computer vision analysis over images and video or provide speech to text services. Also, Azure Databricks allows data scientists to rapidly collaborate on analytical endeavours.
Qlik is one of BI platforms who Aginic chooses to proactively partner with. Aginic are the Qlik partner to over 60 clients across Australia including 2 of the top 10 largest employers in the country, both of whom we manage a Qlik footprint in the many 10,000’s.
We have found Qlik Sense to be a strong BI platform for the whole organisation, not just a few switched on analysts. With embedded BI we have built many analytics portals, extending the normal intranet with interactive, up-to-date visualisation providing transparency and data interrogation to employees that historically was delivered with static PDF’s by email. We also find that our clients who roll-out Qlik get huge uptake, helped by the mobile-first approach (every dashboard works on tablets and phones). Finally as Qlik developers the speed to delivery is rapid, and requires much less of the long, arduous data prep and staging that historic BI project used to.
