Data col­lec­tion and anal­y­sis play piv­otal role in de­vel­op­ment

Data col­lec­tion and anal­y­sis have risen to be­come one of the most im­por­tant roles in in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment, es­pe­cially in in­dus­tries in­volved with the in­ter­net of things, se­nior ex­ec­u­tives said.

Com­pa­nies in Wuxi, Jiangsu prov­ince, are ap­ply­ing emerg­ing data tech­nolo­gies to en­sure the ef­fec­tive man­age­ment of the city, by in­te­grat­ing it with the IoT in­dus­try.

“Cloud com­put­ing is a sig­nif­i­cant sup­port plat­form for the IoT,” said Song Hong­ming, se­nior mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor of Huayun Data Group, a Chi­nese uni­corn com­pany that pro­vides cloud ser­vices for over 300,000 busi­nesses in the fields of traf­fic man­age­ment, fi­nance, ed­u­ca­tion and man­u­fac­tur­ing.

“The IoT con­nects things and col­lects a su­per-large amount of data from them and cloud com­put­ing helps to store, man­age and process data to a much greater ca­pa­bil­ity,” Song ex­plained.

Huayun has set up an ef­fi­cient in­fra­struc­ture-asa-ser­vice cloud plat­form that sup­plies an on-de­mand en­vi­ron­ment for mass rapid tran­sit net­works to de­velop, test, de­liver, and man­age soft­ware ap­pli­ca­tions, while en­sur­ing nor­mal oper­a­tions.

Song said that Huayun sup­ported the build­ing and oper­at­ing of the cloud com­put­ing plat­forms in Wuxi, in­clud­ing the one be­ing built for the city’s third metro line.

Us­ing cloud com­put­ing, the Wuxi metro can flex­i­bly re­spond to the de­mands put on sta­tions dur­ing rush hours. Mon­i­tor­ing charts and large dis­play screens pro­vide real-time in­for­ma­tion for pas­sen­gers to en­sure their safety and to keep them up to date with metro net­work con­di­tions.

Data col­lec­tion and anal­y­sis tech­nol­ogy is also be­ing used in business in­tel­li­gence and re­port­ing tools de­vel­oped by FanRuan Soft­ware, a lead­ing business in­tel­li­gence ven­dor in China, help­ing com­pa­nies to im­prove

The big data gath­ered from the fi­nance sec­tor, in­ter­net, and IoT-ap­plied ar­eas has been cre­at­ing a ris­ing de­mand for pow­er­ful data anal­y­sis tools in re­cent years.”

“The big data gath­ered from the fi­nance sec­tor, in­ter­net, and IoT-ap­plied ar­eas has been cre­at­ing a ris­ing de­mand for pow­er­ful data anal­y­sis tools in re­cent years. That’s how our business thrives,” said Chen Yan, CEO of FanRuan.

As the largest player in China’s business in­tel­li­gence mar­ket, with a 13.76 per­cent mar­ket share, FanRuan is the only Chi­nese com­pany that is listed in the world’s top 10 for the in­dus­try, a re­cent In­ter­na­tional Data Cor­po­ra­tion re­port showed.

Huayun and FanRuan are the only two en­ter­prises in Jiangsu prov­ince to be listed in China’s top 50 big data com­pa­nies in 2018, as was an­nounced at the third Big Data World con­fer­ence in Bei­jing re­cently. Both com­pa­nies have ben­e­fited from the business-friendly en­vi­ron­ment in the city of Wuxi, ac­cord­ing to their ex­ec­u­tives.

The two com­pa­nies are ex­hibit­ing their lat­est big data prod­ucts and so­lu­tions at the 2018 World In­ter­net of Things Ex­po­si­tion held from Sept 15 to 18.

Huayun is one of the lead­ing big data com­pa­nies in Wuxi.
