Improve data management on your production line with CoLOS software

The IEC predicts that by the year 2020, the amount of data generated by people and machines will expand by 40% per year to reach a staggering total of 35 zettabytes. What can businesses in the manufacturing, packaging and labelling industries do with all this information?
Improve data management on your production line with CoLOS software
The term ‘big data’ describes the huge amount of information that is available in the digital universe – as well as the advances in computational power that make it possible for companies to analyse this data and use it to boost productivity, increase efficiency and meet a range of other business goals.

Businesses that learn how to collect and manage this data, as well as harness its power, will rapidly increase their decision-making capabilities and learn how to better anticipate risk, understand new markets and grow the bottom line.

Most of the information created going forward will be produced by machines and devices with embedded sensors – and shared via data networks. While many firms do not yet understand how to leverage this amount of data today, it is important to future-proof your organisation by exploring new software and data management systems that are flexible enough to grow with your business (or your data management skills).
