The Gift of Big Data

The vast amounts of data collected by devices over the past few years have proved more than valuable in streamlining and optimizing industrial processes, logistics, and even helping to develop medical vaccinations. 

The main driver behind all this growth and innovation? Big data. 

The IoT boom brought along with it a massive uptick in big data collection. From small temperature sensors to real-time machine health monitoring solutions, IoT devices have given industries the gift of big data. One of its biggest advantages is that companies now have the ability to make accurate predictions on the fly based on existing information. For instance, an architectural firm can utilize big data collected from previous projects – including ventilation routing, climate parameters, population density, and energy usage patterns – to design and develop stronger, more energy efficient structures.
