“And the weather yesterday was a sunny 18oC with warm spells in the south and showers in the north. This is similar to the pattern we saw last Thursday.” Imagine if the weather forecast only restated what happened in the past -- would we bother waiting until the end of […]
It was John Allen Paulos who said, “Data, data everywhere, but not a thought to think.” That rings true more than ever before. Companies are struggling with the deluge of data coming at them from multiple channels. But traditional data channels are just the beginning. Companies also are facing an […]
The buzz about the Internet of Things (IoT) combined with the insights derived from analytics appears to be hotter than ever. What's interesting to me is how many people go about their lives without knowing what the IoT is and how they're already benefitting from it (or how their jobs […]
I've spent much of my career managing the quality of data after it was moved from its sources to a central location, such as an enterprise data warehouse. Nowadays not only do we have a lot more data – but a lot of it is in motion. One of the […]
Research indicates that IoT and Machine Learning are more valuable to utilities when used in combination but there are hurdles to overcome first. Machine learning and IoT will enable utilities to better realize the next generation of the power grid: a distributed system with power flows among millions of things […]
Machine Learning: An invited guest to the IoT party? was published on SAS Voices.
We had just completed a four-week data quality assessment of an inside plant installation. It wasn't looking good. There were huge gaps in the data, particularly when we cross-referenced systems together. In theory, each system was meant to hold identical information of the plant equipment. But when we consolidated the […]

In my last post we started to look at two different Internet of Things (IoT) paradigms. The first only involved streaming automatically generated data from machines (such as sensor data). The second combined human-generated and machine-generated data, such as social media updates that are automatically augmented with geo-tag data by […]
When something comes between you and your customers – like not having product in-stock or providing offers that aren't relevant to the customer – it causes delays and makes it harder to complete transactions in a satisfying way. But, an inexpensive sensor, beacon or Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag placed […]
The concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) is used broadly to cover any organization of communication devices and methods, messages streaming from the device pool, data collected at a centralized point, and analysis used to exploit the combined data for business value. But this description hides the richness of […]
