Industrie 4.0: Analytics everywhere

    Industrie 4.0: Analytics everywhere

Through advances such as big data and the Internet of Things (IoT), the field of analytics has been growing by leaps and bounds. However, much of the focus, particularly in the United States, has been in the consumer (i.e., business-to-consumer, or B2C) market. Indeed, much of the innovation coming out of Silicon Valley, and from disruptive digital companies with new business models and no legacy infrastructure to contend with, remains in the context of personalization and the consumer experience.

IoT unleashes endless business opportunities

    IoT unleashes endless business opportunities

Imagine a sensor inside an offshore drilling rig. The sensor checks for damage to a critical valve. To do so, the sensor regulates pressure in the oil well 7,000 feet below the ocean’s surface. This sensor generates data that might have gone unnoticed half a decade ago. Back then, the rig operator had no way to tap into this ground-level information.

That’s not the case anymore. With the right technology, organizations can now find everyday data instantly, no matter where it is created – right away, on the fly – exactly when this data is most useful.

    Product or Service? Making wise decisions with the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) sounds like a consumer fantasy or a science fiction come true. The convenience of turning off the home lights from miles away or leaving the grocery purchase to the refrigerator when milk needs to be replenished sounds technologically interesting. However, there is more to the IoT than the technological lifestyle enhancement by using smart devices. The actual potential of IoT lies on the corporate side, enabling organizations to collect and analyze data from sensors on equipment, pipelines, weather stations, meters, delivery trucks, traffic lights, automobiles, healthcare devices and other types of machinery.

    Predictive analytics in the cloud: It’s all about the data

During the 1992 presidential election, the Clinton team coined the phrase “it’s the economy, stupid,” as an easy way to remember one of the most important platforms of the campaign.

Job searchers: It’s not just who you know, but how well you know them
