How To Send Data To The SQL Server Database Using Raspberry Pi and Windows 10 IoT Core
Of course. Data collection in IoT is only a means to an end. In fact, if you do not have any plan about what you are going to do with your data you are probably not going to benefit from the exercise. Data doesn’t automatically turn into insights, despite what IoT vendors try to sell. Insights are unique to each and every organisation, and therefore, there has to be a concerted effort between IoT vendors and plant experts who understand every last detail of what sections have potential for optimisation and how machines work. And consequently, what parameters to monitor. Yes, you might not have a solid plan on how you are going to extract insights from data collection, as is usually the case. However, not making a deliberate effort to collect data is certainly not a good strategy. Because, cliché as it may sound, data IS the new currency. There are many ways of data storage including big data frameworks e.t.c. But the lowest hanging fruit is the use of a relational database such as SQL, with an advantage of an abundance of skill and tools for data exploration. In the video, I demonstrate how to use Raspberry Pi and Windows 10 IoT Core to send plant data to a remote SQL server database hosted on local premises and in the cloud.
THE HALF LIFE OF A LEARNED SKILL USED TO BE 30 YEARS. TODAY IT'S 5.
And it will continue to decrease exponentially. The only way to avoid becoming irrelevant is to get in the habit of reinventing yourself every single day.
