THE FUTURE FOR CYBER SECURITY

A study entitled, State of Cyber Security 2017, performed by ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association), suggested that cyber security staff are becoming increasingly difficult to find in such a rapidly expanding and evolving field. The report was based on a survey of 633 cyber security specialists across North America and Europe, with 27% stating that they were unable to fill open cyber security positions in their businesses and another 14% unsure as to whether they would ever fill those positions...

Cloud Startup: BellaDati

Agile and Beautiful Big Data Analytics on the BellaDati Dashboard

If cloud startups were to offer big data with meaningful, spot on cipher, then they would probably match the description of BellaDati, an originally Czech company, with now branches across Asia and America. The European startup provides general and specific big data solutions. The latter, especially, may be appropriate for banking institutions that not only want to visualize but to create tracking reports and similar analytical dashboards for gauging on their performance.

Functional Beauty of Dashboards

From a mathematical perspective, dashboards should be relevant, crystal-clear and simple. By simple it means that they can simplify otherwise very complex representations, such as, a company’s internal structure. This is why BellaDati uses the term ‘beautiful’ to account for its aggregation of charts and diagrams that clients can use to display and explain their projects or performances.

The cloud database of the startup has a library of shapes and diagrams that apparently users can copy or drag to use on their projects. All chart types, ranging from bars to triangles, are available for visualization purposes, with the company putting their number at two hundred and forty.

Applications for Compatibility

Another essential part other than analytics by BellaDati is that of offering native and open source apps for mobile and smart devices. Some of the few mentions whose apps are accessible seamlessly on the API of the company are Samsung and Apple products.

End-User/Client Extra Support

While it is not exactly marketing, per se, BellaDati meets all rounded services of a company that not only offers backend infrastructure, but technical support. The latter may range from lack of staff proficient in big data in a company, whereby the startup chips in and offers its direct support. The other is that of helping bring the BellaDati platform to all departments, by offering agile training to the employees in a convenient manner. Lastly, there is also the high-end training provision for admin and developers. This is especially when they want to embed the startup’s applications on their servers.

The Visualization Platform for Bankers

One of the most important duties of a cloud company is to simplify work by creating dashboards that are easy to visualize. The BellaDati premise is quite functional for banking outlets that need to have their data work easy to reference to, at any time. For instance, a bank can use the dashboard to pull down reports of the number of Automated Teller Machines in a region, calculate the number of branches available and the customers they have. More so, it is possible to create multiple, distinct channels, for handling clientele. These can include call center, online, cellular, ATM and branch channels.

Pricing Strategy

The only phrase that can describe the pricing strategy of BellaDati is agility and intuition. While theirs features the three pricing structures that one often finds in many companies’ cost sheets, nevertheless, this one has these differences: there is a Pilot, Workgroup and Enterprise version in its on-Premise offer. The first one offers starters who are just launching their projects with a chance of analyzing data from about 950 Czech Francs. The Workgroup version, on the other hand, offers businesses in need of more complex reports and dashboards with moderate server space, a chance to start with 3190 Francs. The Enterprise level is savvy for the company that has collaborative big data and business environments. Each of these versions has approximately one-month trial downloads.

In short, if agility and beauty, the latter in a technical sense with reference to dashboards, is one’s idea of business analytics, then BellaDati passes the test. From its trio of bases in Prague, Singapore and Chicago, this company has made analytics go global with a visual kind of perfection. It deserves a place among major upcoming cloud startups.
