Case study of the week

SilverHook Powerboat Team

One hour, eighteen minutes and three seconds. It’s a new world record — the fastest time ever for a powerboat crossing the Florida Straits from Key West to Cuba. But work toward the record really began five years earlier, when team captain Nigel Hook started bringing business tech aboard the boat.

Now, analytics, IoT, cloud computing and telemetry help the team race faster and safer. Nearly everything on board is monitored, tuned and shared in the cloud — including driver vitals. Which means that, for the first time ever, virtual passengers can ride along inside the cockpit, watching the speedometer climb and heart rates spike as the boat approaches 127mph over choppy water.
