Importance of Internet of Things analytics for organizations

Nowadays there are hundreds of devices which can be connected to the internet. It can be at home, in a factory, power plants, cars, plantations and thousands of other places. They generate millions (in some case billions) of data points. They range from fuel efficiency of your car to millions of megawatts consumed by a city at night.

Internet of Things does not affects only a small company life, but also whole populations with implementation of smart cities by the government, in order to avoid wasting public resources. It can also be used by farmers with very large plantations to monitor soil and weather conditions. All you need is a sensor that sends information to a data center through the internet.

Problems when using different solutions

However, as technology develops, a lot of vendor are putting different sensors in the market. This means sensors that speak various different languages, so systems must not only be able to support the data generated by those sensors, but must also be able to connect to them properly.

After all this hard work to set everything up you find one more problem. It takes too long to use the data. The system can not handle a large quantity of data every second and a decision that had to be none on that same minute must wait several minutes, in some cases hours just because the insertion is limited.

How SlicingDice completely solve these challenges


Thinking about that, The All-in-One Data Warehouse provided by SlicingDice offers a petabyte-scale analytical data warehouse which is the ideal choice for storing time series data, since it was built for that. Coupled with our innovative pay-per-column pricing model, where you can store unlimited rows per column for a fixed price, this means organizations can store as much data as they need, with low and predictable costs.

Using our API, IoT sensors can stream data directly into our data warehouse, that has built-in tools for data integration, exploration, visualization and machine learning. This means IoT projects can be validated and deployed in a matter of days, leveraging a fully managed, infinitely scalable, flexible storage that’s also unbelievably fast.
