Philips Wins IDC European Data Strategy and Innovation Award

Even more rewarding is when our customers achieve recognition for their predictive analytics initiatives based on Vertica. IDC’s European Data Strategy and Innovation Awards 2020 celebrates European trailblazers. It recognizes excellence in the organizations’ strategic consideration and management of data, and use of data, analytics, and AI to drive innovation, new products, and services, and operational excellence. Philips won Runner-Up Award for Innovation with AI.

Here’s the abstract from the award submission with some additional detail on Philips’ predictive analytics initiative:

Philips has tens of thousands of connected medical devices around the world that include mission- critical MRI machines and CT Scanners. Every imaging system contains many sensors and generates daily large volumes of data: a single MRI system can generate millions of log events each day and hundreds of thousands of data points from its sensors. Philips realized the potential of this data for predicting medical device technical issues and built a big data analytics solution by combining its own HealthSuite Digital Platform with the Vertica Analytics Platform.

Datamation Names Vertica Top Data Warehouse Tool

To round out our recognition so far in June, Datamation recognized Vertica as one of the top data warehouse tools that offers enormous competitive advantage in processing data analytics for business across all sectors.
