Transform Industrial Data into Actionable Insight
“Relevant knowledge at the right time is priceless in the enterprise”, according to Forrester. In many enterprises, “relevant knowledge” is hidden in a deluge of data of all kinds, structured and unstructured.
In the manufacturing and utility industries, this deluge of data is very diverse, and it evolves in universes with different timelines: There is fast-paced data streaming in from sensors and smart meters. Moreover, every maintenance or service intervention adds new data to be kept and made visible to people in the need to know – a slow-paced but important process.
None of the original IT applications of manufacturing and utilities companies have been designed to cope with today’s volume and variety of data nor with real-time responses to large numbers of users.
