Injecting IoT into Big Data Analytics

The Internet of Things, or IoT, presents many opportunities for retailers and consumer goods organizations to drive business improvement. Among these is the use of data from sensors, devices and products to improve Big Data Analytics. Consider the following scenarios:

Consumer Products Brand

A household products company offers an internet connected button in the consumer’s home to place a replenishment order manually, which is delivered same day. Or, the product itself features smart packaging that “knows” when it’s nearly depleted and triggers the re-order autonomously. Demand is better understood among these customers and predictable such that fulfillment is streamlined and anticipated. As a consequence of all this, high frequency customers are isolated, a personal relationship is developed, and they are targeted for testing new products and acting as champions in new product rollouts.

Appliance Manufacturer

An appliance company’s product sends usage information back to the company to identify potential quality issues and collect feature utilization to aid product development. The appliance also now acts as a conduit for developing a relationship with the customer. Thus marketers can propose new ways to use the product to improve satisfaction and referral, or recommend the purchase of complementary appliances. In a commercial context, freezers and other storage or display machines that ensure product quality or safety, require maintenance, or have the capacity to measure inventory, present similar opportunities when the customer is a business (retailer) rather than a consumer.

Omnichannel Retailer

A retailer employs beacons in its stores which trigger personalized offers to customers on their smartphones. Or even better, the offers also reflect product availability, which is tracked from the shelf, to the storage room, to the distribution center, and reflects inventory across physical and online stores. As a result, regardless of commerce channel, digital promotional offers reflect actual availability to avoid out of stock situations for high demand promotions, winning the customer’s business and ensuring a satisfying shopping experience leading to greater loyalty. This same capability could also offer supplier brands the opportunity to bid on real time mobile promotional opportunities to avoid excess inventory.

These are three scenarios playing out today in progressive adopters of Big Data Analytics who recognize the potential of “data in motion,” or the type of streaming data often associated with IoT. Big Data Analytics is fundamentally about generating new insights on data in many formats from many sources.

Data created by sensors, devices and products, in combination with many other sources, is invaluable in the above three scenarios to inform decisions related to:

  • Demand Forecasting

  • Product Launches

  • Research and Development

  • Customer Satisfaction and Advocacy

  • Cross or Upsell

  • Personalized Offers

  • On Shelf Availability

These are all analytical use cases which can be executed absent IoT data, but are greatly improved with IoT data. This is today simplified with the Oracle IoT Cloud Service, which works in conjunction with Oracle’s Big Data Cloud capabilities to realize a variety of high value use cases.

The ability to ingest and manage data from IoT and numerous other sources within and outside a company is essential to powering many Big Data use cases. To better understand this, check out Gartner and Forrester coverage of the Big Data platform markets.

Companies are struggling to increase the scale of the use cases they can explore with Big Data. So simplifying the acquisition and management of data, as well as the data science process itself, is critical. These are all attributes of the Oracle Big Data Cloud value proposition, which is further enhanced by the ability to seamlessly incorporate IoT data in many use cases via Oracle IoT Cloud Service.

Reducing the Time to Value for Internet of Things Deployments (IDC)

According to IDC, the IoT value proposition is driven by the ability to translate vast quantities of sensor-based information into action — the faster, the better. IoT solutions that make it easier to securely connect devices, analyze real-time and historical data, and integrate to back-end applications represent an attractive option for companies seeking to hit the ground running and accelerate time to value.

This new whitepaper from IDC and Oracle is focused on comprehensive, IoT solutions and on best practices in manufacturing, transportation and logistics. Also discussed is how the next wave of big data from connected devices is already helping to transform these business segments as they seek to differentiate.
