According to a recent press release, “Teradata, the leading cloud-based data and analytics company, today announced the availability of ‘4D Analytics,’ a new capability in advanced analytics that combines 3-dimensional geospatial location data with the 4th dimension of time. This advanced functionality is especially relevant in edge computing applications that exist to manage constantly changing time and location variables. By integrating these capabilities – primarily geospatial, temporal and time-series data – into the Teradata Analytics Platform and making it easy to combine the capabilities with operational and customer analytics, Teradata is enabling its customers to operationalize enhanced IoT analytics use cases.”
Tim Henry, Senior Vice President of Strategic Offering Management at Teradata, commented, “We are on the brink of a massive explosion of IoT applications and use cases powered by advanced analytics… Devices at the edge, like connected cars, fleets, planes, traffic lights, roads, wearables and so much more, will become smarter and more valuable as new analytic insight is pushed out to them. Teradata, with the industry’s first 4D Analytics capability, is primed to lead this revolution of smarter edge computing, driving broad improvements that range from reduced traffic and greater energy efficiency, to increased transportation safety.”
