This chapter is included in the Big data deployments: Maximizing their value, minimizing mistakes E-Book.
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. The strategies highlighted by those at the helm of such operations arm IT, business intelligence and analytics managers with the insight and advice to effectively incorporate machine data into big data management and analytics programs.
