HVAC concerns in an industrial facility like a warehouse or manufacturing plant can be complicated. Not only are these spaces usually larger than traditional commercial areas, but they often have equipment or products that need to maintain a specific temperature. MacroAir’s large industrial ceiling fans provide optimal airflow for industrial facilities and are an affordable alternative to HVAC systems.
MacroAir’s big industrial fans deliver a cooling effect for occupants, help control the effects of humidity, and can also help conserve heat in colder months by pushing warm air that is trapped at the ceiling toward the walls and down to the floor at occupant level.
MacroAir’s big ceiling fans provide an efficient airflow solution and a sustainable alternative to relying on HVAC alone to cool large spaces.
As easy as it is to get swept up by the hype surrounding big data, its just as easy for organisations to become discouraged by the challenges they encounter while implementing a big data initiative. Concerns regarding big data skill sets (and the lack thereof), security, the unpredictability of data, unsustainable costs, and the need to make a business case can bring a big data initiative to a screeching halt.
However, given big data's power to transform business, it's critical that organisations overcome these challenges and realise the value of big data. The cloud can help organisations to do so. Drawing from IDG's 2015 Big Data and Analytics Survey, this white paper analyses the top five challenges companies face when undergoing a big data initiative and explains how they can effectively overcome them.
