David Meyers, Managing Director of Axis says of the offer: “Axis for Business has been providing value telecoms and utilities for business for many years.
We appreciate funds can be tight for some during this tough economic climate; all businesses have to do is to refer new business to us, then they get to enjoy at least £264* savings a year on overheads. “We are aiming to differentiate ourselves in the market and grow our market share by using our customer base to refer other businesses through referral marketing.” Axis for Business is aiming to get their customers connected, who might be switching from the main broadband providers. It is also predicted that businesses moving premises, will be attracted to the offer, as it will hopefully help avoid the lengthy delays that occur with some providers, where companies are often left waiting weeks for installation of broadband.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
