Visibility Insight Management Optimisation
The Internet of Things opens up opportunities for organisations to gather intelligence about how current business processes make use of resources, gain insight into how to improve efficiency and apply automation and controls to create an environment where business processes can evolve to be more effective. Innovation, smart devices and hyper connectivity create many new ways to exploit technology, but in every case there must be a business imperative to justify investment. How does it drive growth, make more effective use of resources or mitigate risks?
Can you gather large volumes of different types of data in real time to accurately understand what is happening in business processes? What are the worst performing parts of the business and how could they be improved with best practice from the more efficient parts? Accurate and real time access to an increasing diversity of information delivers insights to build more efficient and effective business processes.
How close are systems to failure? Is it better to check them periodically over time or after so many usage cycles? Why do some things need more maintenance than others? What is the impact of unanticipated failure? Just in time maintenance based on precise data avoids wasteful early replacement of components, unnecessary journeys for simple 'checks' and the consequences of unexpected failure. Make decisions based on accurate and current information, not assumptions from guesswork.
What are the most important policies and are we meeting them? Do we have the detailed intelligence that will feed auditors with the required insight? Need to validate that regulations or directives have been met? Manual and often error prone exercises to check and validate can be effectively replaced by automated monitoring.

Smart Scalable Effective Efficient
An open network of connected smart devices - the internet of things - could do almost anything, but while there are many fanciful ideas of what might be done at some point in the future, there are many practical and pragmatic applications that the IoT can deliver today.
Integrating various elements of the complex urban environment is a huge challenge, but there are many aspects that would benefit the individuals living and working there; easing travel flows and congestion, effective management of precious natural resources such as water, dealing with the logistics required to feed, heat and supply a modern metropolis.
Resources like energy are becoming more precious and unexpected usage variation can highlight other issues. Energy use needs to be collected in real-time to provide immediate intelligence into how business assets and resources are performing, so that the organisation is responsive to changes or problems. Rather than being a simplistic view of the overall usage, data gathering needs to reach across the entire organisation and delve into details, with a capability to pinpoint specific usage in critical areas.
As well as resources managed and supplied by the organisation, business operations are influenced both by the external environment and by internal working conditions. Fluctuations in temperature can indicate problems with machinery, or affect critical equipment as well as the workforce. Variations in luminosity, temperature, ventilation affect energy consumption, as well as energy production from renewable resources.

Reach Reliability Relentless Relevant
Insights gleaned from Big Data depend on information being fed from every available source. Continuity of data flow is paramount, gaps in data or loss in connectivity will impact its value. Organisations need to be able to make sense of data within the context of their business environment. These are the capabilities that EcoSteer delivers.
Smart Edge Gateway - Feeder
Instances of the EcoSteer smart data feeder software running on any type of low powered or industrial PC at the edge of the network isolate applications and the wider network from having to deal with the complexities of proprietary protocols, polling legacy devices or sensors and hardware dependencies. At the same time the EcoSteer feeder delivers a pushed and managed flow of live data which is efficiently packaged and delivered across the network, using patent pending technology to ensure high volumes of relentless data traffic remain unaffected by any temporary glitches in communication.
Data Aggregation - Server
Data gathered from potentially large numbers of locations and sensors can be structured in a hierarchy that matches the business need, intelligently aggregated as it arrives and then stored in an open manner in any relational database, where it can be accessed to generate live dashboards or reports. Real time in-memory aggregation dramatically decreases the impact of Big Data on database resources, with no loss of resolution.
