Vestas Spins Up Wind Generation with Spotfire

Published By: TIBCO Software     Published Date: Sep 21, 2018
BUSINESS CHALLENGE “Vestas is a global market leader in manufacturing and servicing wind turbines,” explains Sven Jesper Knudsen, Ph.D., senior data scientist. “Turbines provide a lot of data, and we analyze that data, adapt to changing needs, and work to create a best-in-class wind energy solution that provides the lowest cost of energy. “To stay ahead, we have created huge stacks of technologies—massive amounts of data storage and technologies to transform data with analytics. That comes at a cost. It requires maintenance and highly skilled personnel, and we simply couldn’t keep up. The market had matured, and to stay ahead we needed a new platform. “If we couldn’t deliver on time, we would let users and the whole business down, and start to lose a lot of money on service. For example, if we couldn’t deliver a risk report on time, decisions would be made without actually understanding the risk landscape.

It’s important for American manufacturers to stay current if they wish to remain successful? Positioning yourself for growth means looking to the future and gaining efficiencies through new technologies? That’s why this question may be the most important one for your business— are you a future-ready manufacturer? Before you can adequately answer that question, you and the members of your organization need to know the answers to these three questions: X Where are we today?

Real-Time Analytics

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio

Redefining Real-time Database Performance

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
Databases have long served as the lifeline of the business. Therefore, it is no surprise that performance has always been top of mind. Whether it be a traditional row-formatted database to handle millions of transactions a day or a columnar database for advanced analytics to help uncover deep insights about the business, the goal is to service all requests as quickly as possible. This is especially true as organizations look to gain an edge on their competition by analyzing data from their transactional (OLTP) database to make more informed business decisions. The traditional model (see Figure 1) for doing this leverages two separate sets of resources, with an ETL being required to transfer the data from the OLTP database to a data warehouse for analysis. Two obvious problems exist with this implementation. First, I/O bottlenecks can quickly arise because the databases reside on disk and second, analysis is constantly being done on stale data. In-memory databases have helped address p

Data trends redefine leading brands

Published By: Adobe     Published Date: Oct 14, 2019
Companies that put data at the centre of their business gain better insights and deliver more effective marketing. Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing. A focus on data alone in the context of customer analytics is not enough, however. Companies require insights from their data to deliver first-class customer experiences that give them a competitive advantage. Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%

The enormous growth of companies' size and operations in recent years-particularly across borders-is making this process increasingly complex.
