HiQ creates an analytics solution for the Microsoft Devices mobile phone division, in order to improve user experience, forecast trends, and build intelligent solutions for the future.
The project is at the forefront within the Internet of Things field in Finland.
“The amount of stored information is skyrocketing in our connected world. Utilising data requires dedicated big data and analytics solutions as well as seamless integration, development, and maintenance. This is what Internet of Things is all about. We started tackling this challenge by transitioning from old big data environments to Azure, which provides us with the required tools to manage and utilize data”, says Jouni Marttila from the Microsoft Devices division.
In the project, HiQ’s experts built an exceptionally efficient Internet of Things solution on a cloud platform. The data gathered with the solution aims to improve the quality of the devices as well as the end-user experience. Information is only collected from users who have accepted partaking in the company’s development programme. The solution makes it possible to forecast trends and to modify the functionality in order to meet the users’ needs.
“By gathering and analysing data, business operations can be directed. The new Azure Machine Learning concept allows us to predict future events or bottlenecks based on data streams. This way we can develop our services in pace with our rapidly changing world and create even better products for our end-customers. The cloud environment’s agile methods enable fast results and working with HiQ has been simple and smooth. These factors led to the project being finished considerably faster than traditional IT projects”, Marttila adds.
“This is an extremely interesting project, which in Finland pioneers the work in the Internet of Things field. By combining our knowledge of the industry with the best expertise in Big Data, analytics, and cloud technologies, we are able to simplify and create solutions that meet the needs of our clients. We are proud to work with Microsoft Devices and eager to continue helping the division improve its efficiency”, says Jukka Rautio of HiQ Finland.
“HiQ has vast experience in the telecom industry, and we understand the business needs. Together with innovative and creative employees, this creates a great foundation for helping our clients. The Internet of Things is affecting everyone and everything, and we look forward to continue helping our clients to simplify and improve people’s lives,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.
