Many projects dealing with real-time data fail, due to issues with managing data, identifying use cases and applications, and determining the right context for the data that’s collected. DHL’s Javier Esplugas and Conduce’s Kevin Parent explain how the two companies have implemented an IoT pipeline that gives managers and executives real-time insight into warehouse operations, helping them to identify potential hazards, reduce costs, and increase productivity, and share practical tips for preparing and scaling a real-time streaming data project for success.
