New Capabilities and Analytics Create Enhanced Customer Value.
JackBe®, the leading provider of Real-Time Actionable Intelligence software, and Axeda Corporation, the leading provider of cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and delivering machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, today announced a partnership that brings together their complementary technologies to increase the value of M2M data. The joint offering combines user-driven tooling from JackBe Presto with complete M2M event processing and data management from the Axeda Machine Cloud® that enables users to build visual, real-time operational dashboards.
“Machine-generated sensor data is a perfect fit for Big Data and real-time analytics,” said John Crupi, CTO, JackBe.
“Our customers need the ability to quickly and easily create analytics dashboards that combine real-time sensor data with other enterprise data to have a 360-degree view of their complete business operations and impact on their customers.”
“Innovative companies are combining Big Machine Data™ with business system data and mashing these data sources to enrich the use of aggregate information from thousands of connected products,” said Bill Zujewski, Axeda’s CMO and executive vice president of product strategy.
“We are enabling an easy and fast integration using robust application programming interfaces (APIs) that provide the tools for organizations to analyze data and react in real time.”
“The Internet of Things is evolving from a niche area into a mainstream activity, especially in the next three years,” said David W. Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow, Gartner Research. “Enterprises should seriously investigate and initiate pilot projects in 2013 to position themselves to exploit the coming opportunities.”¹
The JackBe-Axeda collaboration will provide organizations:
- Applications for business users that are easy to use and understand, combining real-time machine information with other enterprise data into interactive dashboards;
- Visual analytics delivered in real-time, based on the combined information from sensor and enterprise data, that deliver insights and actionable intelligence customers cannot get from sensor data alone; and
- Visual performance and event trends that can be used for predictive and diagnostic analytics to reduce unscheduled maintenance costs.
