In a story published recently in Computerworld, ARI was one of several featured companies who were early adopters with regard to developing ways to effectively manage Big Data and all of the information streaming from the Internet of Things (IoT).

ARI’s Director of Information Management Bill Powell advises to prepare for a deluge of data. “Don’t underestimate the volume of information,” he warns. “People think, ‘If I collect the info, I’ll have an epiphany of business value.’ That’s not the case.

Push the business logic [as close to the sensor] as you can.”
