Turbocharging F1’s IT infrastructure. The technical aspects of F1 have become ever more demanding. With high-powered hybrid V6 power units and new Energy Recovery System technology, there’s been a big impact on car design and engineering. The Lotus F1 team wanted a trackside and HQ infrastructure that would reflect the most significant redesign in F1 history. Now, a complex network of over 200 sensors can generate more than 25 megabytes of data per lap, per car. Where hundredths of a second can make a huge difference, Big Data and cloud-like availability of data have given the team real competitive advantages in their aim to be world champions in 2015.
Creating an information exchange that saves lives. There's no compromising on health, especially not for Munson Healthcare. This 3,901-bed regional healthcare system has eight hospitals and five clinical centers in northern Michigan. Besides implementing technology that would transform its IT infrastructure and deliver new services, we used EMC and VMware technologies to enable a private cloud that would help Munson Healthcare make more mission-critical medical applications available than ever before. Thanks to secure information exchange, we’ve helped them reduce costs and improve patient care delivery.
Using social media and real-time data to keep people moving. How do you measure a city’s heartbeat? Monitor its pulse? Make full use of the information it generates to improve life for the people who live there? In Rio De Janeiro, our Big Data technology is helping the city’s authorities do just that; analyze real time weather, traffic and emergency service response data, then combine it with the power of social media to predict potential problems and keep the city and its 6.4 million people flowing freely. And with 96% of passenger traffic now concentrated on the roads, the need to keep Rio moving has never been more important.
