When you have limited resources and big data to crunch in real time, it makes sense to use the cloud. A less obvious scenario is to have data that isn’t very big and the need isn’t for instantaneous feedback—but the only way to get the crunching done in a timely and financially responsible way is to tap the cloud.
That’s the situation the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) was in. Their data wasn’t big, but they needed compute-intensive, sophisticated predictive modeling done each month. They asked analytics professional services firm Inquidia Consulting to help.
