ESA (European Space Agency) captures information about earth from space through its satellites. These information contains big data i.e. unstructured and complex information which is always been hard to process. But, processing the information into meaningful data would transform future. SAP and ESA is working together on a mission to change the world by transforming big data generated from ESA satellites into smart data.
Earth observation data which contains several information about climate change, earthquake zones, possibilities of storms , weather data for several locations , earth resources etc would be processed by SAP HANA platform to transform them into meaningful information, thus better decisions could be taken. Digitally transforming the space data could predict possibilities of storms, earthquakes and huge sea waves like tsunami which would help to make us prepare for unprecedented situations. Also, insurance companies can secure the risks in business by knowing the future possibilities of natural disasters. The business would get benefits out of it.
Processing these big data can change the world, as by measuring population growth we would be able to predict total population after a decade, also we could estimate the status of food resources available on the planet. These information would help us to utilize available resources more effectively and we could find or generate more resources to meet our demand.
