Are You Optimizing Your Audio Visual Data?
Contrary to popular belief, working with data is not just for the IT world. In fact, every company of every type of industry has data to utilize whether they realize it or not. This is especially true in the Audio Visual industry.
Audio Visual data is collected from every device connected to the IoT, meaning that every device and asset contains a huge wealth of information waiting to be tapped into. That being said, are you utilizing your audio visual data to its ultimate potential? Let’s find out.
What is Audio Visual Data?
Audio visual data is the information collected through any internet connected device and contains information on location, usage, issues, firmware and software updates, and life span of the product. It can be structured or unstructured depending on the method of data mining, collection, and organization.
The structure of your data depends on how your company has utilized it thus far. Some data may be extracted and organized into an excel spreadsheet, other data may come from the cloud or an SQL server.
Collecting Audio Visual Data
It’s important to understand the variety and volume of the data your company collects. There is so much information processed on a daily, hourly, and minute to minute basis that knowing where to start can be a bit overwhelming.
First, think about what information would be valuable to your company. If it’s knowing where people use your product then start with the location data. If you want to know how often your product is used and when the most popular time a device or set of devices (i.e. a conference room) is used then look at the time and usage data.
By outlining your business’s blind spots and pain points you will see what audio visual data you need to leverage in order to grow your company’s success. Start by collecting the data that is of value to your company and organize it by data type so that it can be easily accessed and utilized.
