Take just a moment to consider how many of the devices you interact with on a daily basis are connected to the internet (your phone, the gas station pump, ATMs, computers, jet engines…the list goes on). In fact, the analyst firm Gartner estimates that by 2020, there will be over 26 billion connected devices.

With all that data, efficient big data management will have to be developed. The Internet of Things (IoT) allows consumers to access a seemingly unending number of devices. But, in reality, IoT objects cannot truly be separated from the industry that produces them. In 2017, this Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) seems to have finally captured the attention of industry and market leaders...

CSC Advances Industrial Machine Learning to Help Businesses Make Better Decisions Using Enterprise-Wide Data Insights

Grazed from CSC

CSC today announced the expansion of its strategic alliance with Microsoft through the advancement of Industrial Machine Learning (IML) solutions that enable data scientists to produce new data-derived enterprise insights, leading to better and more timely business decisions.

Most large, data-rich companies fail to benefit from information on an enterprise-wide scale because they are not equipped to effectively capture and analyze available data sources. A recent survey from PwC and Iron Mountain found that 57 percent of businesses are unable to extract significant value from their information, and 23 percent are unable to derive any real value at all. Regardless of size, geography or sector, businesses are struggling to fully realize value from their information.

With Internet Of Things And Big Data, 92% Of Everything We Do Will Be In The Cloud

Grazed from Forbes. Author: Joe McKendrick.

You don’t need Sherlock Holmes to tell you that cloud computing is on the rise, and that cloud traffic keeps going up. However, it is enlightening to see the degree by which it is increasing, which is, in essence, about to quadruple in the next few years. By that time, 92% percent of workloads will be processed by cloud data centers; versus only eight percent being processed by traditional data centers.

Cisco, which does a decent job of measuring such things, just released estimates that shows cloud traffic likely to rise 3.7-fold by 2020, increasing 3.9 zettabytes (ZB) per year in 2015 (the latest full year data for which data is available) to 14.1 ZB per year by 2020. The big data and associated Internet of Things are a big part of this growth, the study’s authors state...
