“Small Data will control our businesses, homes, and even our cars and robots – all of which will define the world of tomorrow. Focusing on Small Data now could help us keep from being overwhelmed by it later and assure we will benefit from the massive rush to the Internet of Things,” says Rob Enderle, Principal Analyst, Enderle Group.
The IoT (Internet of Things) is one of the hottest buzzwords exciting the tech industry. This white paper describes the broader perspective of the IoT in light of the terms Cloud and Big Data, coins the term Small Data, describes the opportunities and the challenges – and explains the role of GreenPeak.
The Role of GreenPeak Technologies
GreenPeak Technologies is a technology company focusing on Small Data application systems. Collecting, managing and extracting useful information from the massive volumes of Small Data is a tremendous technology challenge, and an opportunity for new, innovative companies.
Over the last few years, GreenPeak is one of the companies that has been driving the development and building of these Small Data systems through:
- Developing and owning core technology pieces that collect Small Data from the end nodes in a cost efficient way.
- Licensing-in certain technology components from third parties to complete Small Data Systems so they can be used by Operators and Retailers.
- Developing strategic relationships with hardware and software providers to design and manufacture easily installed and maintained Small Data systems
End-to-end system understanding and integration capabilities are essential for bringing to market solutions that are customer friendly and economically feasible. There is a reason that Smart Homes have been promised for a long time, but still have to live up to those promises: Small Data has been looked at as a simple group of sensors, but in reality it is a system that stretches from these sensors into the Cloud and into Big Data.
GreenPeak Technologies’ strategic value is that it can deliver to the brands (Operators and Retailers) complete Small Data systems, including all the hardware and software components that will drive the next wave of Information Technology, the processing of Small Data in the Internet of Things and the building of the Internet of Everything.
