Deep drilling is more crucial to Royal Dutch Shell than ever – except now much of the precious resource they're after is digital. Shell IT CTO Johan Krebbers tells us how IoT is essential for capturing data, but is otherwise a relatively small part of their overall digitalization agenda, in this exclusive interview.
In an industry where production yield and efficiency are tantamount to success, quickly identifying and correcting defects in the manufacturing process is critical. The customers of Optimal+ operate in production environments where errors related to yield and efficiency measurements can lead to losses of millions of dollars per year within a single plant. By implementing Vertica, Optimal+ is able to speed up analytical insights, combine data from different productions processes and gain visibility across the whole supply chain – leading to improved yield, quality and productivity for semiconductor and electronics manufacturers.
Join Alon Malki, Chief Architect at Optimal+, and Jeff Healey, Director of Product Marketing at HPE Vertica, to hear how advanced analytics and manufacturing intelligence can drive success in Industrial IoT. On this webinar you’ll learn:
Why HPE Vertica Analytics Platform is purpose built for IoT data
The challenges Optimal+ faced when developing a solution for IoT analytics
How Optimal+ leverages HPE Vertica to create an ideal big data architecture
