Growing Customer Momentum
The use of Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub for IoT has been transformative across industries by innovative customers, such as Cargotec; Cerner; DocBox; Kentucky Transportation Cabinet; Komatsu; mesur.io; Navistar; Octo Telematics; Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company; and Shoppermotion.
Soili Mäkinen, chief information officer at Cargotec, a leading provider of cargo and load handling solutions:
"It is our goal to be a leader in intelligent cargo handling by 2020. With our scalable IoT platform, powered by Cloudera, we can offer our customers data-based insights that many of these industrial companies have never seen before. We use IoT data and machine learning to help customers recognize how their cargo handling equipment is performing in different weather conditions, understand how usage relates to failure rates, and even detect anomalies in transport systems."
Anthony Reid, senior manager of Analytics at Komatsu, a leading global heavy equipment manufacturer:
"With increasing customer demand and more connected machines, we were looking at data growth reaching 30 terabytes per month. Our former environment limited our ability to scale, grow and innovate. With Cloudera's modern platform, we use advanced data analytics and machine learning to power our IIoT success. We now provide customers with better recommendations on machine utilization and deliver services faster."
Mike Prorock, founder and chief technology officer at mesur.io, the company transforming agriculture, golf and turf management, mining and vineyard management:
"mesur.io is disrupting the agriculture industry by fundamentally changing the way the world measures and interacts with environmental data. Our goal is to connect actionable information with the people who need it–make lives easier, work more efficient, food more abundant and water more available. To provide growers with a cost-effective, complete picture of the environment, mesur.io architected an IoT platform running on Cloudera Enterprise to power Earth's largest climate-aware network, fundamentally changing the way the world measures and interacts with environment data."
Ashish Bayas, chief technology officer at Navistar, a leading manufacturer of commercial trucks, buses, defense vehicles and engines:
"As a company nearly two centuries old, we are proud of our digital transformation and the momentum we have built in the marketplace.
