Big Data is at Heart of Internet of Things
It is likely that big data, one of the big “hype” concepts just a few years ago, will find practical application as an integral part of developing Internet of Things and machine-to-machine applications that essentially gather data and then analyze it for application in real time, or near real time, to control the operation of devices, people and systems.
“IoT isn’t just about gathering data; it’s about using it to make better decisions — that’s the value of IoT, Verizon argues. “Regardless of whether the output is manual or highly automated, analysis of the data must be integrated into business processes. If the data is not actionable, by you or a third party, it’s not IoT.”
