Big Data and SAP Work Manager natually fit together. They form a virtous cycle. Mobile solutions when done right enable your field workers to capture information at the point of performance. This leads to greater information collected as well as more accurate and timely information. For instance, unreported work gets captured as well as what parts were used, how long it took to complete and better reasons for failure reported.
This all feeds Big Data solutions such as predictive maintenance. Work order assignments to your mobile device will be driven by the big data recommendations from predictive maintenance.
