Description

Sensors provide utility companies a tremendous amount of information, but a traditional approach to analytics prevents companies from getting the most out of sensor data. A big data approach to sensor analytics can move companies from reacting to machine interventions to predicting machine behavior. Increased storage capabilities allow companies to gather and merge additional data sources like engineering notes to gain a holistic view of machine operations. When this data is placed in a Hadoop-based architecture, companies can start applying analytical insights in the context of three use cases that are proven to drive business value. Watch our on-demand webinar, “Sensor Analytics and Utilities: Use Cases That Are Changing an Industry.” In this 45-minute session, Jamie Milne, consulting manager for World Wide Technology’s Big Data Practice, will explore how: Using predictive analytics to schedule machine maintenance before component failures Text analytics to cluster alarm types for greater efficiency of notification systems Using Hadoop architectures to identify areas of addressable downtime
