Transportation, manufacturing, and utility companies all share the need to store, analyze, and manage large volumes of data in order to improve business efficiency and optimize customer experiences. Whether you need to improve asset tracking, ensure delivery of goods and services, or enable on-line purchases and tracking, you need to efficiently store and analyze data. While operational efficiency and favorable customer experiences remain differentiators in these industries, data analysis can help you optimize the routing, production, and delivery of goods and services.
This Big Data analysis can be challenging, because facilities, users, and devices are geographically distributed and creating an ever-increasing torrent of data. This data can be unstructured, and is often time-stamped data. The volume, velocity, and variety of this data makes it difficult to store in traditional relational databases.
