Navistar's IoT deployment on Cloudera wins TDWI 2017 Best Practices Award
Cloudera, Inc., a platform provider for machine learning and analytics, announced that TDWI, a provider of analytics and data management research and education, has named Navistar’s Internet-of-Things (IoT) deployment of Cloudera a winner of the 2017 Best Practices Award in the Big Data category. Navistar was chosen for its IoT-enabled connected vehicles and real-time diagnostics solution, powered by Cloudera, which reportedly helps manage and maintain hundreds of thousands of vehicles through predictive analytics.
Navistar uses Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub to gather and analyze more than 70 unique data feeds from connected vehicles in real-time, across multiple telematics sources. Since adopting Cloudera, Navistar has been able to gain real-time visibility of more than 300,000 vehicles, help customers reduce maintenance cost and vehicle downtime by as much as 40%, and reduce spending on proprietary hardware and disk solutions.
"Cloudera empowers organizations to become data‑driven enterprises in this newly hyperconnected world. Connected cars, including trucks and buses of tomorrow, could generate up to 25 GB of data per hour—meaning a highly scalable data management and advanced analytics platform is imperative," said Amr Awadallah, Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer at Cloudera. "We are helping multiple industries deliver next generation products and services using data from IoT sensors. We enable companies such as Navistar to leverage machine learning and advanced analytic techniques to transform the massive volumes of data that IoT generates into new business value."
TDWI chooses winners for the Best Practices Awards by enlisting a panel of independent judges who have expertise in each of the awards' categories. Entries are scored on business value, maturity, innovation, and relevance to other organizations. The Big Data category honors organizations that are working with various types of big data, especially data from web applications, social media, machines, sensors, streams, devices, grids, surveillance equipment, geospatial systems, and the IoT. Cloudera and Navistar were chosen for the solutions' use of real-time streaming, advanced IoT devices, and predictive analytics that demonstrated measurable business value.
