Where would you build a wind-farm? Somewhere windy, obviously. But how would you know how windy that area was a year ago, two years ago, three? How would you know when the windiest time of year was? How would you predict the weather for today, the weather for tomorrow, the weather for next year and beyond? The answer: talk to 3TIER.
3TIER, an industry leading company dealing in renewables risk management, helps businesses decide where to place their wind-farms, solar-farms and hydro-dams by giving them all the information they need to assess the future energy potential of any location. How do they do this? Big data.
Nature kicks out an infinite amount of data and the more 3TIER can process the more it can help its customers. But, not so long ago, its infrastructure wasn’t able to scale, meaning it couldn’t meet the demands of its workflow. This limited 3TIER’s ability to grow its customer base. So, it turned to EMC to provide it with a big data solution. To read about how EMC helped 3TIER to predict the storm and allow its business to grow, open the case study below.
