  • Big Data: It’s all about the strategy

    Big Data, a huge amount of data, is a challenge for researchers and analysts. Although the data sets can lead to many new insights after the evaluation, their complexity, fast rate of change, and simply their amount makes it almost impossible to process them with classic methods and without smart technical aids. Images, audios, videos, GPS satellite data, internal company information, social ...

  • Improving energy efficiency with an intelligent remote energy management system

    With the growing demand for energy efficiency solutions to contend rising energy costs, many technologies have become available in the market today. However, without intelligent and continuous energy data measurements, which can be analysed for strategic energy planning, carbon emissions, energy efficiency, reliability and electric costs, the maximising of overall savings is much more difficult ...
