Businesses define the successful outcome of a business analytics deployment in terms of the tangible and intangible value they derive from it. Infrastructure is a critical cog in the data analytics engine that powers NGAs and therefore successful DX initiatives. Businesses generally prefer to start with standardized infrastructure components and add custom components for their use case (refer to Figure 8). In some cases, they are compelled to build infrastructure from the ground up. However, the more customized the infrastructure, the more an operations burden on the IT organization hence the preference to keep it as standard as possible.
