Data Discovery- Why aren’t more businesses doing it? #EnergyProductivity #EnergyEfficiency

Greetings!

Over last two months we have been engaged by two big companies from Textile and Automobile sector to dig deep into their data assets (Energy, Production, Process) and conduct a detailed data discovery process.  Background being that both the organisations wanted to find out ways in which data could support their decision of improving #EnergyProductivity.

Though they were not completely aware about the sort of insights/ benefits the data discovery process could bring to them but they still wanted to do it with an open mind and without any possible constraints.

Because of the way in which #DataAnalytics has been sold to companies, their ability to look at the use cases is getting restricted to what’s being sold to them. Forward looking organisations are wanting to do more, develop their share of process driven IPs that could give them competitive advantage and be able to innovate on use cases. It is this approach that is letting some of these companies get the right strategy in place, implement solutions that fit their requirements and more importantly generate much more economic value out of their data assets than they would have been able to do otherwise.

I am afraid that we do not have enough businesses/companies investing in the #Data discovery process. Last year i had release series of Podcasts on use of Data Analytics in driving Energy Productivity improvement and better Energy Management practices in Industries. One of the important areas i touched upon was the link between Change Management and adoption of data driven processes in assessing, reporting and managing energy performance!

Once businesses are able to overcome legacy issues, challenge their conventional approach they would be in a position to embrace #Data and make the best of use of emerging technologies/techniques.

What is your take on it? Would love to hear on your experience.

Cloud Platforms- End of the road for Startups or time to reinvent?

Greetings from Kuala Lumpur! 

While exploring Agro processing industries, and looking for Vegetarian food I’ve managed take sometime out for my next podcast. It’s going to be short one but perhaps quite relevant!

Recently we have seen a flurry of announcements from large corporations on release of scale-able cloud platforms around which IoT based solutions can be driven. 

This podcast covers my views on how startups can best respond to this and perhaps take advantage to add more value!

What’s your take?

Ignoring potential benefits of Motor Performance and Maintenance Data?

Electric motors/motor driven systems consume 50-60% of Industrial electricity consumption and most industries generate huge data related to motor performance and maintenance, with Engineering/Maintenance department taking measurements of basic parameters etc.
Question is is your organization converting that data to insights that has potential to:-
  1. Guide on possible energy efficiency interventions?
  2. Advise on predictive maintenance of motors, avoid productivity losses?

E-Cube Energy has launched www.motor-tool.com that allows you to maintain all data pertaining to motor performance and maintenance on a #SaaS based cloud platform, accessible from anywhere.

Platform is simple but powerful in a way that it has the potential to disrupt the way industries look at managing all the unorganized data (related to motor performance/maintenance). Essentially allowing industries to organize data, store it centrally and analyse on the plattform to have insights that otherwise was not available!
We are providing free accounts to industries for configuration of 10 motors (For 3 Months Usage). To sign up for your Free account visit www.motor-tool.com
