The industrial Internet of Things, known as the Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has become a buzzword for automating the smart manufacturing process. It is shaping the future of smart and intelligent manufacturing. No matter what you call it, this connected or smart manufacturing has become all pervasive.
Internet of Things is concerned with the connectivity of devices and sensors, and multiple other sources and services linked to them. It is continuously pushing our society and industries to new heights. These devices, sensors and other connected sources emit enormous and dynamic structured, unstructured, semi-structured and behavioral data in real time, which in itself is raw. This data needs to be churned out to derive actionable insights to improve things connected by IoT and drive overall productivity.
IT services in India is highly vulnerable to the next phase of technological disruption in automation and AI as novel capabilities such as self-repairing code reduce the need for the large-scale deployment of cheap IT professionals. India is likely to witness a crisis like the one it has never seen before.

Tableau and Power BI offers different advantages and disadvantages in comparing BI solutions. However, need for a Business Intelligence solution for an enterprise depends on the nature and demands of its business niche, size, type and workforce necessities and customer segmentations it caters.
The retail value chain is impacted by Big Data in many profound ways: retailers use Big Data to collect data on their customers so that they can better serve them and market themselves to them; they interact with payment systems whose information must be secured against sophisticated threats; and their logistics and operations can be markedly improved by using Big Data effectively.
The IoT is about a world in which physical objects ranging from gas turbines to mobile phones and television sets are connected to the Internet. That connectivity imbues these devices with intelligence and enables them to collaborate with each other and with people to adapt to the contexts in which we live, work, and play.
In the era of Big Data, as the amount of data available for analysis has exploded exponentially, securing that data has become absolutely essential for corporate success. Firms like Target and Home Depot know first hand the deleterious impact that data breaches can have on the corporate brand and bottom line.
Many Hadoop installations have been focused on individual teams and their particular data analysis projects. But that's changing as Scott Carey points out in "11 Hadoop case studies in the enterprise," business from big banks to airlines and retailers are deploying Hadoop at the enterprise scale. Further he asserts, that "Forrester now says enterprise adoption of Hadoop is 'mandatory,' so any business that wants to derive value from its data should, at the very least, be looking at the technology." Installing Hadoop and enabling a single team to use it has become a simple process, particularly if a cloud-based offering of the platform is acceptable. Whether on Azure, AWS, the Google Cloud Platform or another cloud provider's infrastructure, provisioning a multi-node Hadoop instance can be done quickly...point and click.
Does that mean, however, that the newly-minted Hadoop cluster is ready for the enterprise?
