New tools for old tasks

Terms like "big data" and "data analytics" signal big changes for the ethanol industry. Some plants might be unprepared for them.
Big data may be old news to us…but there’s a revolution happening in the tools available to analyze it. Based on his 30-plus years of experience in the industry, principal scientist Frank Moore believes that the true change is about rapid, real-time tracking and analysis made possible by new tools.
