Turn big data into business value

Big data is changing what you know. Today, your organization has access to more data about customers, products and systems than ever before. But you can’t gain insights from unstructured data scattered across your enterprise.

WWT can help you make the right investments in analytics, so you can extract just the information you need. We’ll start with a workshop to identify use cases that offer business value. Then, leveraging next-generation technology at our Advanced Technology Center, we’ll perform a proof of concept by augmenting data warehousing with Hadoop-based infrastructures.

A big data solution capable of scaling beyond the pilot phase depends on strategic planning. Our experts will build a big data platform, architecture and analytics that take into account how layers speak to each other, as well as appropriate configurations. This process ensures data is transferred accurately from its source throughout all parts of your system.

Following a proof of concept, our customers roll out with live data that is processed and analyzed to provide meaningful value. From there, we can provide training and workflows that help scale your big data platform across all parts of your organization.

Communication that fosters connection

It’s amazing what your teams can do when they’re able to communicate without barriers across departments, organizations and technologies. Equally remarkable is the connection customers feel when your team can communicate with them on their terms.

We design and implement collaborative architectures that provide employees and customers with quality experiences across all endpoints. Specifically, we work with customers to build collaboration solutions focused on unified communications, conferencing, video and contact center.

With thousands of collaboration solutions deployed, we've established ourselves as a trusted advisor for enterprise collaboration and continue to lead this rapidly evolving market. Cisco recently named WWT its #1 Enterprise and Federal Collaboration Partner, and we’re a top Cisco video partner globally.

Our approach speeds the evaluation, design and implementation of solutions, so you can quickly and easily deploy your new collaboration technologies. And our lifecycle services give you visibility into how end users are adopting solutions, so you know you’re getting the most out of your investments.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at World Wide Technology.

    Interview

    Slow and cumbersome. I had two interviews with HR, followed up by several panel and paired interviews with different supervisors. All told I think I interviewed about seven times. Each interview asked me the same questions, with little variety - could really have been one big group. Didn't hear back form company for about a month, then got an offer out of the blue with a start date request in a week.
