TUEBINGEN (Reuters) - SAP unveiled a new product on Tuesday that promises to help businesses make sense of a deluge of real-world data from retail transactions, transport systems and social media, hoping to persuade customers to switch from rival database suppliers. SAP HANA Vora, as the database query software will be known, aims to give businesses greater insights into the vast volumes of data organizations are collecting from customer feedback, along with sensors installed in products, vehicles and networks.
A huge category, the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. IoT represents the logical evolution of the cloud and big data: the idea to enable sensor-equipped "things" to communicate with one another in meaningful, actionable ways, such as the following examples:
Aggregators of telecom Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) connect multiple carrier APIs with various other resources. The main interest groups are API providers and third-party developers. The API aggregator role is gradually gaining momentum within the market as developers create more innovative services, and as operators can also provide mash-ups as end-products. Carriers may perceive aggregators as a threat, as an operator may suffer from a dependency on third-party services, and uncertainty in the provided services and APIs.
Quality measurement is essential for any supply chain to be successful. Video is no different. A breakdown in the system causes unhappy customers, damages brand, and can ultimately be the downfall of the entire business.
Today, we are seeing increasing quality expectations; UHD/4K, and High Dynamic Range (HDR), just to name a few. And, as other new products and capabilities enter the market, every one of them will need performance and interoperability standards to properly integrate them and create value for the total system.
SAN FRANCISCO/DETROIT (Reuters) - Carmakers are limiting the data they share with technology partners Apple Inc and Google Inc through new systems that link smartphones to vehicle infotainment systems, defending access to information about what drivers do in their cars.
Big Data has won acclaim – and rightfully so – for helping marketers improve the efficiency of their campaigns, assisting doctors in making diagnoses, fighting fraud, detecting hacker attacks, and even predicting financial markets. While most of the attention has been on consumer applications, Big Data analytics and techniques can be applied to telecommunications and carrier networks as well.
Big Data represents a major inflection point for the ICT and Telecom sectors as it will transform business asset utility and value forever more. It isn’t a revolution or a replacement for the current technologies, but it is rather a valued extension of business assets.
Data as a Service (DaaS) serves and important role in the ICT ecosystem and provides great benefits across many industry verticals.
DaaS is defined as any service offered wherein users can access vendor provided databases or host their own databases on vendor managed systems. DaaS is expected to grow significantly in the near future due to a few dominant themes including cloud-based infrastructure/services, enterprise data syndication, and the consumer services trend towards Everything as a Service (XaaS).
HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finnish telecoms equipment maker Nokia launched a new localised datacenter service for mobile network operators on Monday, enabling the operators to better compete with the likes of Amazon and Google in providing internet services.
Nokia said it will offer cloud-based datacenters running on Intel Corp's platform to network operators seeking to contend with the soaring growth in mobile data traffic.
So, what’s the current status and efforts of carriers in telecom toward Big Data Analytics?
Good question – and one that’s hard to answer because there doesn’t seem to be much publicized on this front.
There are plenty of companies willing to help telecom carriers to analyze all that data they’re collecting, but not many carriers are advertising their current status and efforts in this area.
