Case Studies

Retail Single-Item RFID Fast Data Use Cases

Retailers use radio frequency identification (RFID) to track and manage inventory, and frequently rely on big data analytics to determine product placements on retail shelves, optimize inventories, and forecast demand. Item-level tagging not only allows retailers to monitor and track individual products throughout the supply chain, it also enables more efficient inventory management within each store to reduce shrinkage, drive revenues, and allocate shelf space based on product popularity. But in addition to big data analysis, retailers need the ability to leverage fast data - data in motion - to enable in-the-moment decisions.

Industrial IoT Fast Data Use Case

The industrial Internet of Things (IoT) field has been slowly maturing in its utilization of big data and edge computing. Technologies like machine learning and predictive modeling have helped industrial organizations leverage sensor data and automation technologies that have existed for years in industrial settings. But it has revealed a gap in meaningful utilization of data in making factory-level decisions. This use case describes this solution pattern, broadly known as fog computing, which points to great potential for increasing quality control and production efficiency at the factory level.
