Big Data

The advancing digitisation of various areas of life and work in our society is making ever-increasing quantities of data available in a wide variety of forms.

Increasingly powerful and more networked devices such as smartphones, sensors, cameras, machines and servers produce measurement data, log data and process data, while commerce and social media platforms generate records of social interactions, as well as transactions involving goods and finances.
The collection, analysis and evaluation of that data aids better and more detailed understanding of existing business models and the establishment of new, ‘digital’ business models and products. Highly scalable data management forms the indispensable basis for many processes in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

‘Big Data’ is the collective term for the technologies, frameworks and tools that have arisen for this purpose in recent years. What they have in common is that they are scaled horizontally as distributed systems and their runtime properties can thus be comparatively easily adjusted to increasing quantities of data through the addition of further resources. Big Data Systems can process a broad range of data types from a wide variety of sources, both in large batches and in a continuous data stream with low latencies. With these properties, big-data technologies provide the foundation for complex analytical evaluations, scalable, reporting-oriented data platforms, and distributed software systems with an event-based processing paradigm.

Since as long ago as 2009, inovex has been one of the first IT service providers in Germany dealing in depth with big data, and has developed and implemented productive corporate solutions in many projects:

  •     Data lakes, data hubs, data platforms
  •     Intelligent, data-powered services and applications (references:, REWE, Arvato)
  •     Data analysis and machine-learning platforms (references: EM²Q, KOSMoS)
  •     Hybrid data warehouses, virtual data integration (references: ProSiebenSat.1, dmTech, C. H. Beck Verlag)

This means we can support you in all areas: from planning and development to operation of Big Data Systems, using on-premises infrastructure and/or in the cloud.
