With data flowing into enterprises from so many different sources, and at varying speeds and times, effective solutions are needed to enable insights to be uncovered for faster decision making.

To delve into the issues involved in making big data usable more quickly within organizations, DBTA recently presented a webinar featuring executives from the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp., known as Freddie Mac.

Vijay Anand, senior director of product marketing at MicroStrategy, Inc., and Dennis Tally, director – single family data governance and management single family division of Freddie Mac, discussed how they have been able to achieve access to blend data from multiple data sources using MicroStrategy. 

MicroStrategy 10 provides Freddie Mac (the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp.), with the most current features in a dashboard design, as well as integration of data big data sources while also maintaining strong governance and corporate standardization.

According to Anand, the role of business users in business intelligence today has greatly evolved. Business users are getting more involved in producing analytical content and as a result, need access to more data.

Business users today seek direct access to more data to make insightful decisions on their own, Anand added.

With MicroStrategy, business users can connect to, prepare, and visualize information on any big data environment, Anand explained. The platform offers native connectivity to Hadoop. Users can access and combine data from multiple sources to make decisions quickly.

According to Tally, MicroStrategy helped Freddie Mac with data wrangling and data discovery for insightful information. “We believe MicroStrategy is part of our work set for our future state tool set and we’re happy about that,” Tally said.
