Retro-Analytics for IoT: When Bigger Data is Not Better
by Steve Hoffenberg, with Chris Rommel, May 2015
Inside this Report:
- Pre-analytics at the local level can dramatically reduce the amount of data that needs to be sent to the cloud.
- Local analytics can have faster response times and improved reliability compared to cloud-based analytics, which are especially important factors in time-critical or safety-critical applications.
- Local systems may not be optimized to find big data relationships, but local systems can be set up to utilize such relationships effectively once they are uncovered by cloud-based big data analytics.
