A Silicon Valley Startup Helps Transit Agencies Mine Big Data
“Many large technology companies, such as Uber, Google and Apple, have already figured out ways to cobble together the vast amounts of movement data their drivers, map makers and devices collect, and make sense of it.”
Big Data isn’t just for big businesses. Today, many solutions are available in the market for small businesses to gather, analyze and make sense of data they already have. With these solutions in place, small organizations without resources to fully leverage new data technologies can also reap the benefits from the massive amounts of data.
Tracey Lien has written an excellent article called “This Startup is Making Big Data Work for All Transit Agencies” on Los Angeles Times and govtech.com talking about how Urban Engines, a Silicon Valley startup, helps transit agencies in the United States and India “improve urban mobility by using information from the Internet of Moving Things”.
