The Crown Estate Shares Big Data to Support Research in the Marine Environment
The Crown Estate, which is responsible for managing the U.K. seabed, faced the challenge of managing up to 1 petabyte of data originating from various sources. Via a Business-Critical SharePoint solution, ClearPeople connected Microsoft SharePoint with Windows Azure to share and exchange Big Data with marine renewable energy developers and the public. The processes of managing, releasing, exposing and delivering data have been greatly optimised, with SharePoint acting as the hub orchestrating these processes. Some of the many benefits of implementing a Business-Critical SharePoint solution include: the Crown Estate now has an effective solution for managing data in a single repository originating from many parties.
