OSIsoft Draws on Experience Deploying Nearly 1 Billion Sensor Based Data Streams to Identify Essential Requirements
San Leandro, California - June 23, 2015 - OSIsoft, a global leader in operational intelligence, today announced the availability of its newsletter featuring the Gartner report Blueprint for Architecting Sensor Data for Big Data Analytics1. Drawing on over 35 years of industry experience connecting nearly one billion sensor-based data streams in over 125 countries, OSIsoft has extended its newsletter, featuring Gartner research, to share additional insights, best practices and requirements for adopting a big data architecture for sensor-based data.
Information Technology and Operational Technology groups are seeing two major trends promising mutually transformative opportunities; Big Data and IoT (Internet of Things). IoT promises to deliver more data to inform decisions while removing barriers to pervasive sensing by overcoming challenges related to cost of sensors, connectivity and energy demands of devices. Complementing IoT, with more sensor data available, Big Data initiatives are offering new opportunities to aggregate, process, analyze and extract transformative insights. The report highlights challenges and provides strategic guidance on essential requirements for a data infrastructure to support scalable sensor-based data acquisition and utilization in Big Data initiatives.
“Sensor-based data is different and requires different approaches to manage and process before it can be used reliably, efficiently and continuously within big data analysis,” said Richard Beeson, Chief Architect. “Sensors can deliver continuous or fragmented time series data streams in immense volumes and high frequency. Whether batch processing or streaming sensor data for big data analytics sensor data needs manipulation, indexing, aggregation, contextualization and governance before delivering to big data analytics engines. It's essential to get this right otherwise the value of the data will be lost.”
