Ituran selects HPE Cloud Native Storage to support telemetry data analysis
SÃO PAULO, Brazil, April 11, 2022 — Hewlett Packard Enterprise today announced that Ituran, a global vehicle monitoring and telemetry company headquartered in Israel, has selected HPE Alletra cloud-native data infrastructure to house all vehicle telemetry data for its business in Brazil. The new data services solution enables Ituran to provide customers with real-time access to vehicle data to improve automation, decision-making and business operations.
Ituran develops, manufactures and markets a comprehensive suite of innovative hardware and software solutions addressing fleet management, stolen vehicle recovery, vehicle connectivity and usage-based insurance policies. Ituran’s services use in-vehicle telematics to track driving behavior and vehicle location. The data is then sent back to Ituran’s data services cloud, where its customers can access, analyze and process the data, helping to power their businesses with data-driven insights.
For example, this technology allows insurers to use these different sources of information to determine the appropriate value of insurance premiums based on individual driver behavior or to offer products based on the “Pay As You Drive” concept that are aligned with the use of the insured vehicle. .
As Ituran’s business continues to grow, the number of vehicles they monitor with their services has increased significantly, as has the cross-referencing of data collected with its services and the total volume of data. In order to maintain high quality of service and improve response times, Ituran needed a more flexible and scalable data services solution, not only to increase storage capacity, but also to store, process and secure. data as efficiently as possible. The solution also needed to be more flexible to support Ituran’s business growth and innovation, including new fleet management services and shared autonomous vehicles.
“At its core, we are an innovation company, and investing in cutting-edge technology is part of our DNA and reflects the pioneering nature of our business,” said Maurício Kikuchi, CIO Ituran. “That’s why we chose the new HPE Alletra to help us manage our data. HPE cloud data services will help us accelerate the deployment of new monitoring and tracking services to help us improve vehicle operation and safety.
Ituran Brazil was an early adopter of the new HPE Alletra 9000 cloud-native data infrastructure and saw the opportunity to reduce the complexity of its data environment to innovate faster with a cloud operations experience delivered by HPE. Ituran can now manage its data globally from anywhere and automate operations through a fully programmable unified API control plane with HPE Alletra. The new solution was sold by HPE Authorized Partner Aviti Solutions.
