Data-intensive applications help customers, employees, and other users do business and make the best decisions in various real-world contexts.
These applications—which embed sophisticated analytics and business logic that feed on fast-changing volumes and varieties of data—deliver guidance that can adapt in real time to user circumstances.
To tailor these applications for their intended uses, application providers require a robust development and operationalization workflow that accelerates and automates the sourcing and preparation of data, the building and training of analytics, and the management of assets (plus the necessary programming code) in cloud-based production environments.
This TDWI Checklist Report presents best practices for application providers to accelerate this workflow in the cloud. It addresses such imperatives as user journey alignment, scalable resource provisioning, rapid application deployment, unified pipeline workflows, comprehensive observability, and maximum application reusability.
