The boom of IoT has opened the possibility to link every previously unconnected entities – cars, homes,airplanes, hospitals, apparels, parking meters, factories, and wearables. According to IDC , about 32 billion things will be connected by 2020. They can collect, report data and even automate systems that enable businesses to work smarter, faster, and become more efficient.
Leading organizations across industries are adopting data management platforms to storage, manage, process and more importantly to drive analytics & decision making.Notable among them are Hadoop and Cloudera that can power some of the most compelling use cases – connected vehicles and telemetry, connected homes, predictive maintenance & industrial IoT, smart cities, usage based insurance and healthcare IoT.
Six key attributes why Hadoop lends itself perfectly into the world of IoT:
- Multiplicity of data sources : Easy ingestion of data from multiple data sources and support for both batch and real-time data
- Data variety : Effective handling of multiple IoT data-types, structures, and schemas
- Real–Time Support : Support to real-time processing and applications on streaming data
- Flexible & Scalable Data Processing : Scales easily and efficiently based on the growth of data,enabling an enterprise to store unlimited amounts of data.
- Deployment Flexibility : Deployable anywhere – on premise, cloud, or in a hybrid environment based on the needs of your business.
- Security : Has a multiple layer security aided by industry-leading security tools.
McKinsey and Cisco estimates that IoT is going to be a multitrillion dollar business, reaching the size of $11 – $19 trillion a year by 2025. The success of IoT deployments will depend on the organizations’ ability to gain insights from the available data, in order to drive efficiencies and improve customer experience.
