It’s not just the data but what you can do with it that will define the winners.

Data is important. However, even more important is the critical Analytics which the data drives. Information needs to enable decision making, either through rules-based/automated decisions, or by people taking decisions based on the analytics presented to them. It is not only the zettabyte of data captured which matters, but what is done with it that defines success or failure.

IoT is gaining significant momentum. As per Cisco, 250 things will connect every second by 2020: that means 7.9 billion things will connect in 2020 alone! Read more

Symbiotic world of net will continue to drive new possibilities

Successful companies have leveraged the power of the internet to drive significant growth in their businesses.

With the onslaught of mobile online, cloud, big data, social, etc., it also creates new service delivery models and newer ways to monetize them, while in the process, driving massive transformation yet again, across all constituents of the industry.

The right dose of data: an opportunity to drive transformation in the medical devices industry

With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet, all relevant parts of any machine or equipment will be able to collect all kinds of data, all the time. Cisco sees IoT as a $14.4 Trillion market over the next decade and GE talks about Industrial Internet driving an incremental $15 Trillion to global GDP over the next decade. From the data explosion already happening and 50 billion devices connecting over the next decade, the colossal sets of data which will be churned out from the physical and digital world will need strong analytics to drive real insights and therefore, actionable results. With pervasive connectivity, strong analytics and huge processing power in the cloud, big data will constantly be analyzed to help in making real-time decisions. And, when the decisions are about life, the value of big data seems more important than ever. Read more
