Turning Big Data into Smart Data

Big data involves a vast collection of unstructured data that cannot be processed without the use of new IT technologies and methods. Due to the size and lack of structure of big data, relevant information cannot be immediately gleaned from it; rather, depending on the task to be resolved, it has to be extracted using data science methods and a suitable IT infrastructure.

The share of raw data, and the variables derived from it that are relevant for resolving tasks, are referred to as smart data. This is because they point out properties and correlations that are immediately accessible and usable. The basis for a good result is always the underlying raw data.

Benefits of Smart Data

After successful processing of the relevant big data pool, the data can be precisely used for smart services. This approach simplifies data management. The focus is on the relevant data. The entire process of data production and storage is made more efficient. In the best case, only those data sets are generated that actually contribute to the services. In addition to being used for smart services, smart data also plays a role in improving machines and IT systems, since the information it contains can help provide a better understanding of systems and their malfunctioning.

What do we do for you with Smart Data?

We are happy to advise you on the path to your smart data. Our approach can be divided into two main parts. In a first step, we will extract your smart data from your big data; based on the data extracted, we will then work with you to develop smart services and implement them for you.

Um herauszufinden welche Trends, Muster und Zusammenhänge in Ihren Daten zu finden sind und wie Sie diese sinnvoll zur Umsetzung Ihres Use Cases verwenden können, bieten wir Ihnen als ersten Schritt einen kostenlosen und unverbindlichen Workshop, den sogenannten „Innovation Day“ an. Dazu analysieren wir Data Scientisten im Voraus des Workshops einen Auszug Ihrer Daten mit festem Blick auf Ihren Use Case. Ziel ist es, Ihnen und Ihrem Team fundierte Analyse-Ergebnisse während des Workshops vorzustellen und die Frage zu beantworten, ob und inwieweit der Informationsgehalt Ihrer Daten zur Umsetzung des Use Cases ausreicht. Sie haben dabei die Möglichkeit unser Vorgehen zu hinterfragen und die in Form von Visualisierungen vorgestellten Ergebnisse im Team zu diskutieren. Damit Ihr „Innovation Day“ ein Erfolg wird, benötigen wir neben einem repräsentativen Ausschnitt Ihrer Daten und der Beschreibung Ihres Use Cases, die Möglichkeit bei aufkommenden Fragen einen Daten- und Prozessexperten Ihres Unternehmens zu kontaktieren.
