Significant cost reduction with Cloudera’s machine learning and analytics platform
HONG KONG, April 11, 2018 – Cloudera, Inc. (NYSE: CLDR), the modern platform for machine learning and analytics, optimized for the cloud announced that Zoomlion, a leading Chinese manufacturer of construction machinery and sanitation equipment, has deployed Cloudera Enterprise to meet the company’s growing big data demands, offering data management and analytics service to over 100 countries across six continents. With Cloudera Enterprise, Zoomlion has been able to effectively manage huge volumes of unstructured data, increase productivity, reduce cost, and lower business risk.
Since 2015, Zoomlion had embarked on its digital transformation effort and built its big data platform to provide precise management, remote diagnosis and predictive maintenance offerings to its clients and their customers using advanced analytics and machine learning. This is closely aligned with a recently unveiled “Made in China 2025” strategy aimed at driving China’s economic transformation and upgrading the manufacturing industry using artificial intelligence and big data.
Zoomlion’s big data platform ingests, stores and processes a wide variety of data from three main sources: Internet of Things data which includes real-time working conditions and location information of more than 120,000 high-tech, industrial and agricultural machines; internal core business system data from ERP, CRM and financial systems, and data collected from external sources such as social media channels, official websites, and data purchased and exchanged with third parties.
As a result, Zoomlion has been able to achieve significant cost reduction on these services, and can continuously analyze equipment operations, detect potential failures, provide fault warnings, operational statistics whilst creating new revenue streams and enhancement capabilities. Zoomlion has also effectively helped customers to optimize their own operational management capabilities, reducing operating cost and improving efficiency of equipment management.
“We chose Cloudera to upgrade our data and analytics infrastructure and enhance our competitiveness. Cloudera’s modern platform helps us manage and analyze data more effectively, enabling us to drive down costs and improve asset performance,” said Zhou Zhi Zhong, Big Data Department Director at Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. “We are empowered to create more value for our customers, innovate with new products and services and create new revenue streams for our business.”
