Sensor Data

Sensor data brings new challenges for information technology.

Sensor data and sensor analytics are poised to become the Next Big Thing in information technology, with experts predicting that the volume of sensor data will soon dwarf the amount of data that social media is currently producing. Gathered from cell phones, vehicles, appliances, buildings, meters, machinery, medical equipment and many other machines, sensor data will likely completely transform the way organizations collect information and process business intelligence.

But working with sensor data is problematic for most organizations today. Most enterprises aren't equipped to integrate data from such a wide range of sensor sources – their legacy integration technology simply isn't up to the task. On top of infrastructure problems, few organizations have developers under employment with the skills like MapReduce programming required to manipulate massive sets of sensor data, and training existing developers is extremely costly and time-consuming.

That's why so many organizations that want to use sensor data for competitive advantage are choosing solutions from Talend. With a suite of big data software solutions, Talend lets you easily manage and manipulate sensor data with the people, skills and infrastructure you already have in place.

Talend makes managing sensor data simple.

Talend's big data software delivers a powerful toolset built on an open source environment that lets you easily connect to and work with sensor data technology, without needing specialist knowledge or resources.

Talend solutions for sensor data run natively on Hadoop big data architecture, the leading platform for integrating and managing massive data sets. Talend also includes components for Hadoop MapReduce 2.0 (also known as YARN), HBase, Hive, HCatalog, Oozie, Sqoop and Pig. Together, these tools provide a unified open source environment where you can quickly load, extract, transform and process large sets of sensor data from widely diverse and disparate systems.

Talend makes it easy to take advantage of the power and promise of sensor data analytics by letting your developers integrate and work with sensor data without needing to learn new skills or write new code. In an easy-to-use graphical environment, developers can visually map sensor data sources and targets, and quickly perform complex transformations and analyses to produce actionable intelligence and drive performance improvement.

Connect to any sensor data source.

With more than 800 pre-built connectors, Talend's big data software lets you integrate data from almost any source, including a wide variety of sensor sources. Talend also makes it easy to quickly create connectors for new sources when needed. And with pre-built connectors for Hadoop database solutions like Cassandra, CouchDB, Couchbase, HBase, MongoDB, Neo4J and Riak, developers can work quickly without needing any specific knowledge about big data NoSQL databases.
