Within a few years, the “IoT” is projected to include millions, if not billions, of connected devices, generating an unfathomable amount of sensor data.

With emerging, real-world use cases—such as predictive maintenance, smart metering, telemedicine, and usage-based insurance—forward-looking enterprises and equipment manufacturers are reducing costs, improving customer satisfaction, and creating new business models based on the inherent value of information.

To capitalize on this emerging mega trend, your organization must do more than simply collect massive amounts of sensor data in, say, Hadoop. Your success with these new business models hinges on your ability to leverage a proven and massively scalable Big Data SQL analytics platform that stores and analyzes volumes of sensor data at extreme scale.

See why more intelligent device manufacturers are turning to Vertica to manage and analyze large volumes of IoT data for predictive maintenance solutions.

Top Vertica Use Cases for IoT Analytics:

Predictive Maintenance

Continuous monitoring of machine and sensor data help equipment manufacturers and service providers predict and address maintenance issues before they occur.

Vehicle Telematics

Sensor data from delivery trucks help businesses ensure driver safety, schedule maintenance before mechanical issues can disrupt fleet operations, and enable intelligent route optimization to reduce fuel costs and emissions.

Smart Buildings

Facilities personnel use monitors to gather data on building systems, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to anticipate and troubleshoot issues before they escalate to “hot” or “cold” calls.

Product Monitoring

Data collected on how customers are interacting with physical features enables product management and engineering teams to analyze user behavior and experience for incorporation into future product development.

Smart Devices and Wearables

Product developers are embedding sensors into consumer electronics to uncover user-specific insights and value-added services across a wide range of needs—everything from smart appliances to fitness trackers.

Smart Metering

Utilities are deploying digital, networked advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to systematically track consumption and demand data across regions.

“Vertica is the data warehouse the market needed for 20 years, but didn’t have… It’s absolutely amazing. It’s game changing. People can sit at their desktops now, manipulate data, come up with new ideas and iterate without having to run a batch and go home.”
