Data analytics firm Teradata has established a Global IoT Analytics Unit within its Teradata Labs operations in the United States, UK and India.
The firm says it is 'laser-focused' on building new cloud-based
analytic solutions and services to simplify advanced analytics, data movement
and database management -- all focused on the Internet of Things.
Teradata Labs president Oliver Ratzesberger has said, "With this
announcement, we are making it easier for our customers to move sensor data
around, optimise data management systems to deal with the massive volumes of
data and run real-time, advanced analytics against streams of IoT data."
Teradata says it is looking to answer the "why did this happen?"
questions that arise in business through using IoT data.
According to Teradata, "Capturing and managing continuous streams
of data is normally complex and labour intensive. [We are] extending IoT
capabilities for Teradata
Listener by with connectors that
make it easier to acquire and distribute streaming sensor data for analysis."
The formalisation of dedicated 'IoT labs' within data analytics specialists like Teradata is an affirmation of just how much data we do expect to see from the IoT and how it will help drive business decisions in the future.
