Using HP Discover to avoid getting derailed by Big Data

Big Data is not a big problem for Union Pacific CIO Lynden Tennison.  Instead, Tennison is asking for more Big Data! That’s not a typical CIO’s request. Union Pacific has the right mechanisms in place to continuously gather data and apply analytical techniques to gain valuable insight from its railroad infrastructure.  Insight that allows them to track the health of their assets.  Union Pacific is also looking to collect Big Data at more granular levels to predict potential failures with greater accuracy.  Thus, they’re strategically using data to refine their operations, customer experience and more. What can other enterprises do to avoid getting derailed by the “Runaway Train” of Big Data?  Let’s check out the HP Discover Big Data sessions.

This session explores improvements in how to turn data into actionable information, and how to use sensing and control analytics to better understand the physical world around us.
