Predict Equipment Failure Weeks in Advance:

Don’t just narrowly avoid disaster, optimize dozens of business outcomes

In manufacturing, drilling, farming and other industries, equipment is instrumented with multiple sensors that collect extensive data and measure a variety of metrics including pressure, temperature, and vibration. Many of these sensors are used in a reactive manner. When a value gets outside of an expected range, or a leading predictor of failure is detected, the machine shuts down. However, the bigger opportunity lies in shifting to the broader lens of business optimization rather than just avoiding a particular failure. Business optimization opportunities include equipment maintenance, equipment and part sales, field service engineering deployments, global supply chain optimization, risk management and more.

CIO Magazine recently published a study to ask CIOs and business executives about their big data analytics projects...

How the Enterprise Knowledge Graph Connects Oil and Gas Data Silos

Let’s say we have two databases, a drilling operations database and a HES incident database. These two databases have been used for years in our company, but we want to understand something that requires data from both of them to answer a question.

At Microsoft, we used an environment called Cosmos for managing big data for online services, such as Bing, Office365, Windows, Skype, Xbox Live, et al.  It was, for many of us, a preview of the problems associated with today’s data lake approach: it was impossible to find data, much less find any actual analysis that had been performed on it.  Such environments are fine when...
