Download the e-book to learn how to:
  • Coalesce and conform customer data from siloed locations and view it in one unified repository.
  • Synthesize information from on-premises and cloud-based applications as well as from streaming data from websites, social media, and IoT.
  • Aggregate and interpret petabyte-scale data faster by using powerful data lake technologies.
  • Identify macro patterns in real time and build machine learning models to predict future trends. 

Make Room For The Autonomous Edge In Your IoT Strategy

“The edge” is important in IoT deployments, but there are numerous contradictory explanations for what it is and why it demands your attention. This report steps back from discussing the specific technologies and products of IoT to help infrastructure and operations professionals understand how four key edge usage patterns should fit within their IoT strategy.

Achieving more with connected products

One of the most promising IoT scenarios continues to be connected products—devices and equipment embedded with sensors, software and connectivity that exchange data with other products, operators, or environments. This paper shares the six best practices to build for success.

Turn data into insights

In this whitepaper, we’ll outline five key factors that helped our customers achieve success. We’ll also share best practices and tips from customers and partners to help guide you as you embark on your IoT journey.

Turning Data into Insights

For manufacturers, time series data and IoT offers exciting new opportunities to innovate by providing insights in fractions of a second on a global scale. To increase speed, agility, efficiency, and innovation, 80% of manufacturers will need to extensively restructure by 2020, placing data at the center of their processes (IDC, 2018). While IoT makes capturing and analyzing time series data at scale a reality, it can be challenging to integrate into your business processes. Massive data volumes, disparate structures, and new security threats can make IoT initiatives seem unwieldy and cost-prohibitive. But they don’t need to be. We’ve worked with many customers to successfully integrate IoT data into their business processes and strategies. In this whitepaper, we’ll outline five key factors that helped our customers achieve success. We’ll also share best practices and tips from customers and partners to help guide you as you embark on your IoT journey.

Unlocking ROI

Organizations that are pursuing Internet of Things (IoT) technologies may rush to take advantage of innovative solutions—without first thinking about the business case or larger strategy. Maximize your return on IoT investments by viewing your IoT project as a strategic initiative with a primary goal of driving meaningful business value. Start by gaining a clearer understanding of what you need to do to launch and manage successful IoT projects.
