Bangalore: Chip giant Intel Thursday said its open platforms, software and standards approach and industry leadership will drive down the cost and drive up the pace of innovation, putting affordable Big Data analytical capabilities within everyone's reach.
Big Data is an industry term that defines computer analyses that are too big, too fast or too hard to do using traditional hardware and software architectures.
"Every two days, we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilisation up until 2003. But even though we are awash with this data, computers are not helping with decision making Thursday to the fullest extent possible. Big Data computing will change this", Director - Enterprise Solution Sales, Intel South Asia, Srinivas Tadigadapa, said.
"Every device that consumes electricity, should compute; and every device that computes should also analyse and gain insights", he told reporters here.
Intel said it is driving Big Data analytical capabilities into hardware and software at every level of the 'Internet of Things', from sensors and client device to the cloud.
The company said it is committed to investing in technology to address Big Data requirements of the future. It is also investing in academic and industry research environments for a forward-looking understanding of how solutions should evolve to make the Big Data deployments in the future easier to understand and deploy.
