IOT analytics market to experience big growth

We’ve known it all along, but several recent reports have pointed to the positive growth prospects of IoT analytics, as companies in a wide range of industry turn to harnessing machine data to improve customer service, streamline product development and increase intelligence about machine/equipment performance.

Converged infrastructure, here we come!

We always feel elated when we enter a new vertical and win a couple of customers in the space. The joy and excitement is amplified when it’s a white-hot vertical by itself – in this case the Converged and Hyperconverged (simply “Converged” for this post) Infrastructure space.

Powerful analytics behind the movement to the “economy of things”

The IBM INSTITUTE FOR BUSINESS VALUE (IBV) has recently released a report titled, “THE ECONOMY OF THINGS,” which proposes the idea that the Internet of Things will evolve into the Economy of Things. The report begins by noting how the internet completely transformed industries such as music and newspapers, but its impact on physical industries, such as manufacturing and retailing, has been much less.

New analyst coverage reflecting exciting developments

It’s a busy summer at Glassbeam – we’re entering new verticals and also rolling out some game-changing product features. We constantly talk to industry analysts to keep them abreast of key developments at Glassbeam, and as a result of these conversations a couple of important Analyst coverage reports have been published in recent times.

Geting the most out of akka clusters

Anyone serious about distributed systems or building one, commonly encounters issues such as replication, consistency, availability and partition tolerance (CAP) [1]. In a real life scenario, partition tolerance is inevitable. So the system must be able to handle partition tolerance when there are network outages. Therefore, ‘P’ in the CAP is a must for any distributed system. This has been backed by Peter Deutsch in his (EIGHT FALLACIES OF DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING).

Elastically adding and removing nodes using akka cluster

This post explores a pull-based master/worker architecture – one that is suitable for anyone who is looking to elastically provision nodes when the load is higher than normal and under-provision when the load is below normal. In this post, the master accepts RSS links from frontend which can be a user submitting links and worker accept one RSS link and extract information such as article’s published date, title and a brief description. All this information is indexed into ELASTICSEARCH.

Using glassbeam for customer segmentation

It’s a well-known fact that better customer segmentation results in increased profitability for any product company. Better segmentation enables product manufacturers to create highly customized offerings and messaging for each customer (the era of 1-1 marketing); better yet, these offerings are well-aligned with the needs and propensities of that customer.

Glassbeam and smart grids

You might know that the Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station and Smart Grid industry is set to explode over next five years growing from less than 1 Million stations today to over 12 Million in 2020 driving an exponential market revenue growth from $200M to $3.5B in the same period.

PRDS and user stories, iot style

Network World spoke with us earlier this month and ran a NICE PIECE on how the IOT revolution is positively impacting new product development.

IOT analytics a critical success factor in today’s "big storage"

The pervasiveness of big data has led to an equally significant expansion of what can be called “big storage.” Whether you’re a cloud service provider or an enterprise, managing that big data requires highly complex and sophisticated storage systems. Failure of these systems is not an option.

Storage system providers have turned to IoT analytics both to help ensure optimal performance and to gain a deeper understanding of how customers are using their solutions.
