In the IT industry – particularly data storage and IT equipment manufacturers ― Big Data means big business. Why? Because, according to Forbes, “the potential of Big Data to bring insights and intelligence into enterprises is a strong motivator, where managers are constantly looking for the competitive edge to win in their chosen markets.”

To do that, companies are turning to IT storage manufacturers, such as the Isilon Storage Division of EMC, to store this incredible amount of data for processing and analysis.

In M2M, Isilon is also one of many IT equipment manufacturers  that are contributing to Big Data as they connect thousands of their storage systems to the Internet. These manufacturers rely on M2M application enablement platforms  to handle billions of daily transactions ― everything from files, alarms, location coordinates, temperature readings, and a bevy of other data items.

But similar to their customers (think Wall Street, NASA, media and entertainment giants), Isilon understands that there is value in this deluge of machine data to optimize or M2Mize their business processes. As a manufacturer of IT equipment, just think how valuable it would be for your sales team to understand the performance and utilization of the data storage equipment before their next customer meeting.

Interested in learning just how Isilon is enabling its customers to manage Big Data? Curious to know how they maximize the value of their connected storage systems by integrating data from the Axeda Machine Cloud with Salesforce.com?

Tune in on Thursday, September 13th, and join Jason Depardo, Director of Technical Support, Isilon Storage Division of EMC for our upcoming Webinar: The Secret to Taming Big M2M Data.
