This session will explore how the combination of two of the largest and most dynamic data platforms will fuel cognitive IoT to connect people and devices, derive actionable insights, and to take action. Weather has a widespread influence on business. It is estimated that weather causes businesses to lose half a trillion dollars every year.
The Weather Company provides IBM with a platform that can be expanded from weather data to ingest other kinds of information from the Internet of Things at massive speed and scale. This powerful combination will enable IBM’s clients to link their business data with weather and other pertinent information to help understand context, uncover new business insights and transform their operations.
