Encanvas iot and big data data sheet

  1. 1. APPLICATION DATA SHEET IoT AND BIG DATA MAKE DIGITAL INNOVATION YOUR  BUSINESS ADVANTAGE Two innovations that are jointly connected are the Internet of Things (IoT) describing the proliferation of sensor‐based devices, and Big Data, describing the  enormous volume of data that exists and continues to grow exponentially due to  the pervasive use of digital images and content.  Encanvas manages the health of  IoT assets and reports on their performance and activities.  This data can be  aggregated with other sources of ‘big’ data to produce new insights. Encanvas  gathers, harvests, analyses and interprets data in whole new ways, producing new  sources of value ‐ new ways of doing business. Making sense of big data What does IoT and BIG DATA mean to your  business?  Do you see big data as a potential way to drive your digital transformation perhaps? McKinsey&Co. neatly describe the business potential of digital transformation in its document 'What it takes to build your Digital Quotient'. They state that, to leverage big data to drive digital transformation in your business, it’s more about something you do, not something you buy. So says McKinsey, to turn big data into power, there are three things you should think about: 1. Getting the strategy right Before thinking about IoT and big data, organizations need to consider 'what digital transformation means to them' as it could mean a new way of doing something better ‐ or a completely new business approach. 2. Capabilities at scale For digital success (says McKinsey) certain capabilities are more important than others. Foremost among them are modular IT platforms and agile technology‐delivery skills needed to keep pace with customers. Encanvas equips businesses to keep their IT in‐tune with changing needs as digital strategies evolve. 3. A fast, agile culture Finally, (says McKinsey) while strong skills are crucial, companies can, to some degree, compensate for missing ones by infusing their traditional cultures with velocity, flexibility, and external orientation, and the ability to learn. Encanvas supports the transformation of organizations towards more agile tendencies by removing the barriers between 'IT and the business'. Use cases Typical use cases include: Asset performance and management ‐ Harvesting insights from assets, analysing them and reporting on their performance. Developing insights in asset serviceability and component performance to optimize preventative maintenance programmes and spares stock inventories etc. Smart systems ‐ Using Encanvas to manage IoT  devices as part of a smart system that reduces  human intervention in events and processes. Industry applications ‐ Transform how processes  work within specific industries by re‐modelling  supply‐chains, customer engagement processes,  user interfaces and business models. The role of geo­data visualizations – Maps are an  important tool in IoT and big data apps because  they bring clarity to large volumes of data by  offering a geo‐location context.  Encanvas offers a  unique built‐in mapping capability based on data  management best practise.  Unlike legacy GIS  systems, Encanvas does not compose composite  map files but presents data and vectors as layers  on a canvas.  This approach is essential for data mashup applications. Why Use Encanvas as your  management system for IoT and Big  Data projects? Add Federated robot/IoT device  control system Access to services 24x7 via a  comprehensive control panel  Cloud‐based scaling and control Federated map views Robotic functionality to  automate manual tasks The ability to anticipate threats,  emergencies, bottlenecks, asset  failures etc. Grow Control and governance of  federated assets  Understanding of cross‐discipline  events and activities Data security and integrity checks  over IoT feeds Data accuracy by exposing short‐ falls in data quality Meta‐data capture Governance over activities – Systematic rules are applied  consistently Best‐practise innovation Reduce IT project risk, spend, overheads  on IT teams Manual data processing tasks Time‐to‐value of new solutions Time to deploy on desktop and  mobile browser platforms Remove Manual data capture, input,  aggregation, cleansing, analysis,  reporting and publishing tasks IT complexity Support overheads

We use features like served web pages to make it difficult to hack. We also do what we can to encourage designers to produce safe environments for data. Unrivalled data mashup and ETL Encanvas is architected to author applications that ‘mashup’ data from different sources and present holistic views. It offers a broad portfolio of ready‐ to‐use data connectors. It also includes powerful extract, transform and load capabilities. Robotics built­in Encanvas includes technology components that can mimic human actions such as key‐filling screens, harvesting and sorting data, producing spreadsheets, presentations, reports, documents (etc.) and publishing. Future­proofed applications Encanvas is now in its third generation. When we had success with the first generation, we realised how difficult it was to maintain existing apps while innovating the platform. So we invented Version‐ Rollback™ technology. It’s integral to our platform and means your apps never go out of date. Cloud scalability and replication We created a cloud container ecosystem called Remote[Spaces] almost a decade ago to make it easier to create, replicate, maintain and update private cloud spaces. It makes it easy to scale applications and protect the data they hold. Unrivalled performance Encanvas is a code‐less platform with unrivalled performance, security and dexterity. It has an extensive library of data connectors to third party sources.
