On to liveworx 2016

We’re just about wrapping up a wonderful week at TSW in San Diego where we met with tons of Support practitioners and discussed with them numerous ways to help them transform their Support organizations into Profit Centers. Now, we’re getting prepped for LIVEWORX – traditionally the biggest Conference for us every year

Actionable feedback right through edge computing

Continuing our discussion on Edge Computing and Analytics ….. Remember WE SAID that a key benefit of Edge was Local Decision Making. Typically, that will preclude access to the install base data. However, there is a wealth of information which can be gleaned from the install base data (such as machine learning output). It seems a shame to not be able to utilize that on the edge.

Productive, proactive, predictive – three facets of glassbeam’s core value proposition

Growing a sales organization is a double edge sword ! It brings more prospects in the pipeline, but it also creates demand on marketing and executive management to crystallize the core value proposition very quickly. I am not complaining :-) I think it is great that I have been pulled into some critical pre-sales discussions recently where I had to think on my feet, white board and create new slides to help sales close new deals. So, this blog is is a multi-series blog that highlights our core message and value propositison to the market we sell into.

Recently you might have been a part of a conversation that went something like:

"Can we reduce our IT infrastructure cost by 10…15% this year?"

"No boss, only by 30…40%"

"Are you insane? How?!"

Return on investment (roi) from log analytics solutions

The question of ROI comes up quite regularly in our sales discussions with prospects. It is natural for our buyers to delve on that topic since many evaluate GLASSBEAM SPEND WITH INTERNAL EFFORTS. We are no doubt on an evangelistic mission to convert naysayers inside product companies who think they can "build" such a solution on their own.

Typically there are three parts of GLASSBEAM VALUE that constitute a very compelling ROI:

Glassbeam for medical analytics – part 2

In PART ONE of the Glassbeam for Medical blog, we explored how Glassbeam helps customer support save turnaround time and avoid unnecessary replacement costs. Support is one use case that benefits from machine data analytics. But the benefits of such a solution can span across the enterprise from customer support to engineering to sales and marketing.

Designing for the internet of things using cassandra

I like the word “ontology”. It has a nice ring to it. Wikipedia defines Ontology as “knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships among those concepts”. When applied to machine data analytics (“domain”), we see that unless we isolate concepts and understand the relationships, we cannot obtain “knowledge”.
