Big Data: Food & Beverage Meets the IIoT

Most people are aware that “IoT” refers to Internet of Things. Put simply, the IoT is “the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.” It is essentially a system of interrelated computers, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.


Despite rapid industrial growth in the F&B industry, there are still some problems with emerging market trends and evolving tech applications and their integrations. This can intensify market competition and squeeze revenues.

A Feb. 2020 article from SoulPage suggests that, since AI and automation technologies are at the core of every modern business, “the integration of big data and data science technologies can solve 90% of the problems faced by the food and beverage industry.”

It’s in everyone’s best interests to work toward devising solutions in an efficient, timely manner. The F&B industry can benefit from data science technology that can interpret data in a way that optimizes all aspects and functions within an individual operation or business.
