Why real-time data is important for your business.

In today’s world, companies are becoming more and more data-driven as they leverage their insights into immediate operational actions. Gone are the days of waiting 2-5 business days or even weeks for data, companies want real-time data and analytics on demand that will propel their business forward by making better, faster strategic decisions.

So, what is real-time data?

Real-time data refers to information that is available and processed immediately or with minimal delay. It is data that is constantly updated in real-time reflecting the most current state of affairs. Unlike, batch processing, where data is collected and processed in chunks at scheduled intervals, real-time data is delivered and analysed instantly or with very little latency.

How can we help?

In the Energy industry, real-time data is so important, as assets require hundreds and thousands of pieces of equipment to be maintained, inspected and kept operational – there is no time to wait around for critical data. However, that is the reality in some cases…


One, 3-week trip by an inspector requires 1 ½ weeks of additional admin. The paper-based inspection data is already 3 weeks old by the time the inspector returns from the field to the office. Then, 1 ½ weeks to enter all the data into the corporate ecosystem. Therefore, the inspection data can be more than 1 month out of date before anyone has an opportunity to review it.
