White Paper: Get the Most for Your Analytics Investment with Cray

Enterprise Strategy Group compares configurations of the Cray® Urika®-GX agile analytics platform with a similarly configured, build-your-own infrastructure.

Advanced analytics is a top priority for any organization. But finding the right analytics solution has its challenges:

  • Quality depends on having a well-defined and tightly integrated stack. 
  • The effort and expense of implementation can be significant.

How should enterprises proceed? This complimentary white paper from ESG examines two approaches: selecting a ready-made system (the Cray Urika-GX platform) vs. developing your own environment (an equivalent commodity kit).

The cost comparison includes:
