Join this webinar as we discuss how the St. Louis metro system has reduced cost per mile by 30% by partnering with Hortonworks and LHP Telematics. They are now able to gather data from over 200 buses and analyze it to prevent part failures.
Have you ever thought about the amount of energy you consume just by leaving your laptop plugged in overnight? We might not know how many kilowatt hours we transmit, but we do know there is a bill at the end of each month associated with those kinds of statistics. Through smart meters, utility and energy […]
Destination Autonomous The march towards autonomous vehicles continues to accelerate. While expert opinion differs on the specific timing and use cases that will emerge first, few deny that self-driving cars are in our future. Not surprisingly, when reviewing Big Data strategies with my automotive clients, discussions on data management strategies for autonomous driving research inevitably […]
Much has been said about the role of information in modern organizations, and evidence suggests that executives who take a tight grip on big data and business intelligence are more likely to steal a competitive advantage over their rivals. In other words, big data, and the actionable intelligence it offers, is an invaluable asset for […]

The automotive industry is going through profound change driven by a myriad of new data sources and the new business models that they enable. Just last week, it was reported that Intel paid $15B for Mobileye, a technology company that allows autonomous vehicles to “see” through cameras and other sensors. Mobileye also allows crowdsourcing data […]
As I sat in the audience of the 2017 Autonomous Vehicle Silicon Valley conference this week in Santa Clara, listening to luminaries present their visions for an Autonomous Vehicle future, I was struck by the change sweeping across the automotive industry. This was definitely not the same industry I have worked within over the last […]
If you’ve been wondering what’s top of mind for Commercial Insurance, it’s preventive analytics. Recently I had the opportunity to attend and speak at the Advisen Predictive Modeling Insights Conference in New York. The conference provided the insurance industry attendees with some fantastic points of view on topics ranging from the role of predictive models, […]
For years, supply chain professionals in manufacturing industries have been aspiring to create a truly demand-driven supply chain. Actual progress, in reality, has been slowed by both the limited availability of real-time supply chain data and the inability to dynamically optimize actions based on this information. However, as the Big Data movement continues to revolutionize […]
Gartner predicts there will be 250 million connected vehicles by 2020. While automotive manufacturers are on track to drive connected vehicles implementation, are they poised to leverage the trillion-dollar opportunity from the gold-mine that is “sensor data”? Research from Morgan Stanley suggests, automotive manufacturers can save $488 billion by using predictive maintenance. By assessing in […]
Hadoop’s cost effective scalability and flexibility to analyze all data types is driving organizations everywhere to embrace big data analytics. From proof of concept to deployment across the enterprise, Hortonworks and Datameer will share three common uses cases for Datameer on HDP and a demo of the Datameer Analytics Solution and we look forward to […]
Recent innovations in the Internet-enabled connected cars that we drive today have spawned a whole new set of opportunities and challenges for automakers. The opportunities come from the ability to capture detailed, current data on how drivers operate their vehicles and how those vehicles respond to that use. Join this webinar to learn how this […]
