Sensor data analytics IoT framework introduction

It is now increasingly commonplace for enterprises to embed connectivity and compute power into all their physical assets in the field. The overarching goal is to integrate operational data from these assets with their information technology and other business process systems. This Internet of Things (IoT)-driven explosion of data presents several opportunities, as customers can be located, educated, acquired, and serviced better than ever before.

Tata Consultancy Services’ (TCS’) Sensor Data Analytics IoT Framework (SDAF) helps enterprises that are responsible for the integration of operational assets with information technology and business process systems—achieve these objectives. To help retain their competitive edge, SDAF allows organizations to quickly:

  • Analyze huge volumes of data being captured continuously by sensor-enabled devices
  • Rapidly collect, pre-process, store, and analyze huge volumes of machine data
  • Convert this steady stream of information into actionable insights


IoT Partnership – Intel, Cloudera & TCS


With the advent of IoT, enterprises have the ability to gather operational data in real-time and perform deep analytics on operational data. This allows them to optimize business processes, substantially tweak strategies, and most importantly, service customers better and faster than ever before.

It also opens up a range of macro level benefits for enterprises, including new and innovative business models, additional customer segments, alternate customer channels, new products and services, enhanced business processes, and more productive workspaces.

To this end, TCS SDAF offers domain specific solutions, which can be leveraged across industry verticals to help enterprises extract granular insight for various functions. These include remote equipment monitoring and diagnostics, predictive maintenance, Telematics insights, demand forecasting, equipment part failure, and so on. The framework’s open-source reusable components help enterprises architect and implement an end-to-end IoT solution best suited to their business needs.
