Internet of Things (IoT) and BigData are now at the forefront of technology and promises to be a game changer as more and more devices (~50 billion devices by 2020 as forecasted) get connected. However, we have seen that take-up of IoT in industrial applications have been slow as industries have been using SCADA, DCS and Historian systems with upto hundreds of thousands of connected instruments and tags. Also there seems to be a concern and confusion about what is BigData and how to handle, manage and make use of the BigData. Thus we get to hear some common questions :

  1. We have an advanced SCADA, Historian system with web based visualisation, controls and reporting installed. We are unsure what value IoT will bring in our case as we are already connected and we can visualise?

  2.  IoT is a subscription based service and likely to cost us approx $40-60K for licensing /year and is it worth that money for connecting a bunch of devices and perform some web based data visualisation when my existing SCADA or BI tools can do the job.

  3. We are collecting a lot of machine Data; but how do we make business use of such data? What tools do I use that will give me real insights into my Data? Can I use my Data to predict outcomes?

  4. Do I really need so much of Data to be stored as cloud storage could be expensive?

  5. What about my Data Privacy and Sovereignty?

  6. Are my data stored in SQL or No-SQL databases? etc.

Through our IoT and BigData consulting, we address your concern and provide you with a clear direction about the Business Use Cases for IoT and BigData management in your organisation. This consulting phase also addresses concerns about IoT functionalities, Connectivity options, BigData mining, Data storage options e.g. on-cloud vs on-premise, Data Analytics, value proposition, Information Security and Data Sovereignty etc.
