Peter Bailis, Sisu CEO & Founder, sat down for an in-depth interview with Alex Woodie at Datanami. In their conversation, Peter discussed Sisu’s unique approach to analytics and why it’s so important to take a proactive approach to analytics by automating data exploration.
Peter said, “What we noticed, even with some of the cutting-edge FANG-scale companies, was even with massive analytics and data science teams, these folks are using essentially a decreasing amount of their data over time. There’s more and more data available, but the actual amount of data utilized is going down.”
“We’re storing ever-bigger sets of data in powerful cloud warehouses like Snowflake, AWS Redshift, and Google Cloud BigQuery, and have analytics tools like Tableau, Looker, and Qlik to slice and dice data to our heart’s content. But the result isn’t what we expected: a proliferation of actionable insight emanating from the data.”
“There’s a sort of disconnect between the structured data available inside of an enterprise, and what it takes to actually get value out of this data.”
