Companies produce a lot of data through electronic devices, technological machinery, sensor networks on a daily basis. Every time a machine is in operation, its internal computer records its consumption, wear, productivity and interactions with other machines. An analysis of these data can help to improve the efficiency of the machine, predict failures and reduce the number of defective parts brought to market. Many companies underestimate the fact that their presence on the Internet - through a company website and social network accounts - produces a whole series of data which, if properly collected and analyzed, can be useful in predicting new markets and being more competitive. Exploitation of existing data may increase firms’ innovation and production capabilities.
The goal of the Challenge Us program is to give the possibility to all companies, including small and medium-sized ones to enter the world of big data and exploit its potential.
