SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- DistribuTECH 2013 -- Space-Time Insight, the leading provider of next-generation situational intelligence solutions, today announced the general availability of the 4.0 release of its award-winning situational intelligence (SI) product suite. The products in the suite, SI Server 4.0, SI Designer 4.0 and SI Viewer 4.0, enable the development and deployment of sophisticated visual analytics applications that correlate, analyze and visualize massive amounts of real-time and historical data to facilitate fast, informed decision making. In addition to traditional analytical functions, these products uniquely help users visualize and analyze data of any type from any source, geospatially, across time, and by nodes in a network. Most notably, the new release introduces predictive analytics capabilities that enable organizations to go beyond understanding "what's happening now" and gain insight into "what might happen next," better preparing personnel to plan for and respond swiftly to evolving operational conditions.
"In this era of big data, businesses are challenged to understand and make rapid decisions on data being generated at different speeds in a variety of formats," said Rob Schilling, CEO of Space-Time Insight. "With the release of our 4.0 product suite, Space-Time Insight further raises the bar on the way all data is correlated, analyzed and visualized. Our customers are not just analyzing data, they're gaining incredible insights from it. And they're not just looking at it in charts and tables, they're visualizing it in unique ways that are meaningful to their business."
The 4.0 product set includes a host of new features requested by Space-Time Insight's global customer base, including some of the largest utilities in North America. These features include:
- High performance visualization of large data volumes. The software intelligently rasterizes data on a map rather than trying to plot, for example, millions of individual assets. In addition, large result sets are presented to end users in appropriately sized batches, significantly improving response times and productivity.
- Broad range of data adapters. Adding to the dozens of data sources, formats, and types already available with the software, the 4.0 release ships with out-of-the-box integration to SAP BW.
- Dynamic end user interface. Enhancing the sophisticated visual interface available in earlier versions, users can now dynamically re-arrange their analytics desktop, "tear off" individual windows, and set preferences that define the behavior of numerous software features and applications. User can also now save, categorize, color and configure "rubber-banded" (user selected) areas on maps, increasing the efficiency of analyzing the same region on different occasions.
- Secure data access. The 4.0 release enables organizations to tightly control access to data through a comprehensive set of system, application and user level settings. New auditing features record user actions and application module access.
Predictive Analytics Help Organizations Future-Proof Their Operations
For utilities, transportation companies, telecommunications providers and other businesses with complex operational requirements, sometimes even real-time intelligence is not enough. For example, it may be too late to line up resources and repair crews once a severe storm that threatens critical infrastructure is in full swing. The predictive analytics functionality in the 4.0 release enables the prediction of behavior based on historical results so that proactive actions can be taken while a situation is still developing. The software intelligently classifies data sets into groups with similar patterns of behavior and uses powerful data reduction algorithms to suppress irrelevant information so that users are not overwhelmed by the quantity of data.

The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Ar...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
