It’s one of the most frequent questions we get asked. Can’t we just build this ourselves? And the short answer is yes, you can. Here’s how: build and configure your data layer, define and build your cloud service connectors, design the schema and cloud infrastructure configuration, transform the unclean data to a coherent, consistent dataset, test its veracity and then maintain the infrastructure. Depending on the complexity, such a build will cost up at least half a million pounds. The annual maintenance will be a multiple of the Conjura cost, with pitfalls; APIs are continually changing, requirements change, things break and need constant monitoring. It will take you a lot of time to build, a year at the very least, so you’ll have to wait to see returns. And you may fail. The short answer has every chance of turning into the interminably long, wrong answer.
Use Conjura, on the other hand, and you will gain access to a tried and tested platform that has already received more than £3m worth of investment, and continues to benefit from new research and thinking. No playing catch-up: our Data Convergence Warehouse keeps our customers at the cutting edge of data analytics.
Conjura offers, typically, a ten times cost saving vs a home build. You have the added benefit of our consultancy experience and insight. You have guaranteed reliability. You will be generating revenue by being operational far earlier. You will avoid key man risk internally. Your IT teams will have the time to invest in other development projects and the savings to spend on other strategic initiatives. So, when the question is put to us, our advice is always take the world class route. It’s your organisation’s future.
