Machine log data is prevalent in the IoT world, especially for complex machines like medical devices, manufacturing systems, and smart grid architectures; and is a natural outgrowth of building products that require assembly from numerous underlying components. It is very important to collect and mine machine log data to uncover true business insights – similar to mining the proverbial diamond in the rough – and to accrue significant economic value from it.
