Intel to provide technology to handle 'Big Data' requirements
Intel in India, a leader in computing innovation, today said it was investing in technology to address 'Big Data' requirements of the future.
Big Data is an industry term that defines computer analyses that are too big, too fast or too hard to do, using traditional hardware and software architectures.
'Every two days, we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003. Though we have this data, computers are not good enough to help companies use it to fullest extent possible. Big Data computing will change this,' Srinivas Tadigadapa, Director - Enterprise solution sales of Intel South Asia, said.
He said data can be nurtured into business value like raw material. Due to lifestyle changes and the industry adopting automation.
'Even manufacturing industry, which was not known for using computers in production, is producing enormous data. There is a tectonic shift in data generation. Intel is now preparing itself to invest in technology to address the Big Data requirements of the future,' he said.
The chip maker is driving Big Data analytical capabilities into hardware and software at every level of 'Internet of Things', from sensors and client device to the edge and the cloud.
Intel is also investing in academic and industry research environments for a forward looking understanding of how solutions should evolve to make the Big Data deployments in the future easier to understand and deploy, Mr Tadigadapa added.
