Understanding IoT and its Effect with Data Engineering

In the previous post (Staying Ahead of the Competition through Data Engineering) we have briefly bump into an important topic, and that is the Internet of Things (IoT).

To start things off, what is exactly is this IoT?

Put it shortly, IoT is a plethora of objects embedded with software and sensors capable of exchanging data with its manufacturer and other smart devices. The data is sent to a network along with the other information that is being directed by other objects embedded by the same software and sensors. These sensors will allow the object to be observed in real time, providing information on that specific object relevant to whatever data is needed at a certain time. Read More

Staying Ahead of the Competition through Data Engineering

Data is everything. Business owners, big and small, have been using these data as foundation for their marketing strategy – and for a good reason. Data never lies. Information is critical in identifying human behaviors, behaviors that can potentially yield a lucrative amount of money if gathered, sifted, analyzed, and implemented properly by companies that use them.

However, it is quite the challenge to find reliable information through the large chunk of information that is usually gathered. This is where professionals in data engineering come in. To put it shortly, data engineers are people that build, design, and manage infrastructures that will help in identifying useful data in a way that can benefit a business. Read More
