The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the world, with people and smart machines connecting at dizzying levels. The flood of data that IoT generates creates value by helping you better serve customers, reduce costs and build new revenue streams—but only if you can interpret what Forrester Research, Inc. calls “perishable insights” and act on them in time.
Exploiting those perishable insights is what the Forrester Wave™: Big Data Streaming Analytics Platforms, Q3 2014, report assesses—and where Forrester Research names Software AG a Leader. Our Big Data Streaming Analytics platform, Apama, is an integral part of Software AG’s IoT Solution Platform that allow compa¬nies to rapidly scale their streaming analytics capabilities to gather data, visualize trends and patterns, analyze data for business opportunities, and make proactive business decisions.
Think of the scenarios where IoT real-time analytics can create and expand opportunities in your business:
- Predictive maintenance to improve uptime and reduce servicing costs
- Managing customer experiences in retail, hospitality, and entertainment
- Smarter logistics for materials tracking and just-in-time delivery
- Smart metering and manufacturing
At its core, IoT is about assessing real-time streaming analytics and visualizing their trends over time to go from monitoring conditions to predicting conditions in advance of failures. With our solution integrating the Apama streaming analytics platform, Terracotta in-memory data fabric and rich visualization tools, your organization will be able to leverage your perishable insights and enhance your operations as a digital business.
