Access "Machine data equals big value for analytics programs"


Sponsored by SearchBusinessAnalytics

Sensors capture large volumes of data about the operations of industrial equipment; similarly, log files gather huge amounts of information about computers and IT networks. Behind those exceedingly large volumes of data is real business value. That is, if analytics program directors are willing -- and able -- to look for it.

This e-book chapter takes a ground-level look at two analytics programs that, while still in their infancy, have taken sensors and log files and effectively joined them together with big data analytics, putting them on the fast track toward greater efficiency and an improved bottom line.
