With the Internet of Things, smart and wireless sensors, advanced control systems, wireless communications and smart devices, the amount of data collected and stored has grown exponentially. These bring big opportunities to the chemical industry where Big Data can be used to enhance manufacturing & operational excellence, forecast pricing, improve formulations, and improve marketing and support innovation.
We present the challenges and opportunities of Big Data in SABIC and a case study illustrating the use of BD technology to move from data, to knowledge, to value in support of Innovation.
