Cloud computing, machine learning, augmented reality, internet TV, the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, cryptocurrencies, voice, blockchain and cybersecurity. These are the big investment themes of tomorrow and they all have one thing in common: they generate huge amount of data.
Cisco estimates that the world generates 122 exabytes of internet data traffic per month. This data traffic is growing at 24% per annum and 82% of it is consumer generated. Most of this data traffic could be monetized via a growing band of hyperscale, internet-facing data centers around the world.
Ask any CEO how they expects to sell more products and cut more costs and he will tell you that Big Data features prominently in his strategy. Big Data refers to the technology processes by which companies can profit from the large amounts of data to which they have access.
Increasingly, utilities own or can access huge volumes of data from smart metering systems, syncrophasors, smart homes and other sources of data. In addition, more of the utilities infrastructure is becoming smart – meaning that it has built-in processing, connectivity, and sensing capabilities. Electric vehicles (EVs), smart home systems, and many more subsystems are likely to interface with utilities and provide them with potentially valuable data.
The report highlights the significance of big data in utilities.
-It discusses the challenge for utilities to make that data useful and generate actionable insights from it.
-It also emphasizes that those solutions that manage big data in the industry need to quickly make sense of data from multiple sources and in diverse formats.
