The Internet of Things (IoT) is a world where ‘things’ (devices or sensors) are connected and able to share data, providing business insights that were previously out of reach. Every day, businesses are connecting their ‘things’ and drawing insights from the data to create new business value.
Within your organisation already, you are producing large amounts of data, and by accessing it, and connecting it to the cloud and back-end systems, organisations can optimise business processes, make more informed decisions, identify new revenue opportunities, and understand and predict customer behaviours in ways they couldn’t imagine before. And we can help you.
Plus the data produced can be data sets so large and complex that they become difficult to process using traditional processing infrastructure and processing applications. This ‘Big Data’ needs to be processed by a flexible, scalable compute model that evolves as your business evolves. Through Microsoft’s tools, engines and scalable architecture, Black Marble can help you take advantage of your data to process and optimise your assets.
For example, we can build you data management applications, based on your unique requirements, that report on the performance of plant and manufacturing equipment, and any other connected device as part of the Internet of Things. We can help you visualise how your business is performing based on analysing the data it produces, and from there, you can quickly begin to make process improvements.
The results have been startling: 49% of manufacturers expect data analytics to help them reduce operational costs and utilise assets more efficiently.
At Black Marble, we help IoT come into its own through the use of IoT Suite, ASA, Power BI and Cortana Analytics, that can help drive deep insight into your organisation’s key asset – data. Contact us if you want to know more!
