Smart computing, often termed intelligent analytics, is all about utilizing the incredible processing power of today’s computing environments to optimize business decisions in real time and convert the ever-growing flood of data into both meaningful information and actionable intelligence. The strategic significance of smart computing in today’s globally-connected business environment is compelling: in less than fifteen years, the number of global web users has exploded by more than a hundred-fold, from 16 million in 1995 to more than 1.7 billion today (Source: CyberSecurity, Cabinet Office). By 2015, there will be more interconnected devices on the planet than humans.
All these interconnected users, devices and sensors are contributing to data volumes that simply cannot be interpreted and acted upon using traditional techniques. The issue is broader than simply a storage issue around “big data”. What’s required is intelligent data analytics that can interpret data streams in real-time and make appropriate and automated business decisions.
