Sensor and IoT data demand scale, context, and complex analytics
The buzz about the Internet of Things (IoT) disruption and transformation can certainly sound like hype. And for companies lacking a clear business case and specific plans for sensor data and device data, the IoT will be more talk than action. Because when devices are talking and won’t shut up, Big Data threatens to deluge IT and analytics groups.
Businesses that design and integrate the right data architectures, establish robust data analytics platforms, and form the right teams will find that the IoT is not just the next big thing, but a necessity for staying competitive in the fast-moving marketplace.
The IoT refers to the enormous network of devices and physical objects ("things") that can connect to the Internet, recognize other devices and objects, and communicate with them. But without the scale to capture, manage, and see the data in context, sensor data reveals only a small fraction of its value. To ensure your data can be used for strategic decisions, we rely on our experience in four key areas:
IoT experience and expertise with complex analytics at scale.
Teradata helps some of the world's most successful companies make sense of some of the largest, fastest and most complex data sets. From delivering a robust strategy and architecture to data analytics and training, our experts can help you generate value from your data.
According to Gartner, 80% of companies have unclear IoT goals, narrow use cases, and limited analytics scope. Teradata helps companies evolve from standalone or narrowly focused analytics projects to highly integrated, business-driven operations. Thanks to our experience with different applications, deep industry knowledge, and broad expertise with complex analytics at scale, we help companies derive sustainable value from investments.
The Internet of Things is transforming every major industry in the world because IoT applications and solutions offer fundamentally new insights into product design and manufacturing, engaging and serving consumers, and monitoring and managing operations. The Teradata difference can be found in our:
The analytics of success—at scale
Teradata specialists design solutions that produce sophisticated and scalable analytics for all your data, all the time. Separating business-critical information from the noise is the first step. That’s why we put the flood of data into low-cost data lakes. Then we send relevant sensor data to data warehouses where data scientists and analysts can identify trends and interpret the data using the Analytics of Things (AoT).
AoT is the “thinking” part of IoT, analytics that can be applied to IoT data so it becomes meaningful and actionable. That means AoT can help businesses gain a better understanding of the relationships between the digital and physical worlds, and many different types of complex systems that comprise the IoT.
We use our experience with IoT applications, deep industry knowledge, and broad expertise with complex analytics at scale to help companies evolve from standalone or narrowly focused analytics projects to sustainable, highly-integrated, business-driven operations. Our AoT experts drive initiatives that lead to cost savings, improvements in operational efficiency, and identification of new revenue streams by focusing on:
