Turn IoT Device Data into Actionable Intelligence: How to Harness Information for Use in Your Data-Driven Business

March 15, 2016

Businesses run on data, and with the Internet of Things (IoT), the potential sources for that data has increased exponentially — along with the potential opportunities to capitalize on that information. The ability to quickly analyze data from an ever-increasing number of internet-enabled devices, before that information loses its value, is critical.

By positioning SAP HANA in an IoT edge environment enabled by Red Hat technology, companies can connect their core business processes to the edge of the network and gain instant access to a wide range of data, both online and offline. Plus, ensure the ability to collect and analyze massive quantities of information in real time.

During this live Q&A, Red Hat’s Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan and Sid Sipes of SAP discussed how to harness big data and leverage edge computing to get real-time insights that lead to quicker decision making. Readers asked data and IoT questions on security, data transformation, and device connectivity, such as:

  • How do I get data from an edge environment to SAP HANA?
  • What are the potential security concerns with IoT edge environments?
  • How can I handle the bandwidth of hundreds of sensors?  
  • What is the best strategy for getting data into SAP HANA from my various devices?
  • What is the difference between embedded and distributed computing?
