The Need for Situational Intelligence
Today’s businesses are faced with a growing volume of IT, OT (operational) and XT (external) data. In fact the “smarter” a company gets, the more data that pours in from smart devices, meters and sensors, adding to the flood of spreadsheets, documents and software applications scattered across the company. Personnel have the impossible task of manually collecting, collating and interpreting data from all these disparate sources. An inability to understand all this data often results in uninformed decisions or even worse, decision paralysis. This exposes companies to unnecessary penalties, risks and reductions in service levels.
