The Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data have each made press headlines and continue to be board-level priorities. The intersection of IoT and Big Data is a fascinating area of innovation with tremendous scope for business impact. From industrial sensors to vehicles to health monitors, a huge variety of devices connects to the Internet and share information. At the same time, the cost to store data has dropped dramatically while capabilities for analysis have made huge leaps forward. How can analytics drive business benefits from IoT projects? What are the challenges in storing and analyzing huge amounts of real-world information? How can companies generate more value from their data? We will address these questions and also share our perspectives on innovative technologies enabling new IoT use cases.
