Utility equipment: Real-time visual analytics software

Utility tools: Space-Time Insight, a provider of situational intelligence solutions, has announced SI Suite 6.0, a new version of its real-time visual analytics software suite that enables organizations to unlock the potential of the Internet of Things by making faster and more confident business decisions. The new release of SI Suite uses Spark Streaming for real-time streaming analytics and includes a powerful, easy-to-use development environment. These capabilities reinforce Space-Time Insight’s commitment to providing organizations with the business and situational context needed to reduce risk, improve productivity and increase favorable outcomes from advanced analytics projects.

“The digitization of assets and operations driven by the Internet of Things has brought with it a flood of data, complexity and operational silos, and as a result it’s increasingly difficult for organizations to make timely and accurate decisions,” said Steve Ehrlich, SVP of Marketing and Product Management at Space-Time Insight. “SI Suite takes on these challenges by illuminating the what, where, when, why and how of every asset and situation, by bridging organizational silos, and by focusing business initiatives on the issues that matter.”

By enabling organizations to quickly and easily correlate, analyze and visualize data across any data sources, Space-Time Insight’s SI Suite 6.0 provides the situational context and understanding organizations need to make fast and confident business decisions. SI Suite, a set of comprehensive real-time visual analytics products, includes a high-performance visualization and analytics server, a powerful visual application development environment, and an intuitive browser-based framework and user interface for visualizing data and analytics results.

“When analytics is embedded into business systems, it must be consumable and actionable so that more people can make use of analytics output,” said Fern Halper, Director of advanced analytics for TDWI Research. “Space-Time Insight’s SI Suite delivers a comprehensive visual analytics solution that provides actionable insights to personnel across an organization.”

Key features in SI Suite 6.0 include:
• Streaming Analytics Using Spark Streaming: SI Suite 6.0 uses Spark Streaming to process massive volumes of sub-second streaming data, a critical need for IoT and operational systems. By analyzing high-speed data as it arrives, SI Suite 6.0 positions organizations to act more quickly on time-critical events and derive value from large quantities of data. As a result organizations are able, for example, to identify performance anomalies, predict equipment failures and dynamically generate optimized schedules as situations evolve.
• Creating Rich Visual Analytics Applications in Minutes: SI Suite transform data into visual analytics applications in a matter of minutes. Users simply select data from any number of sources, apply analytics models and choose from a range of visual presentation formats. The software greatly simplifies the creation of situational intelligence applications containing advanced analytics, and enables developers, data scientists, business analysts, and business users to collaborate in solving challenging problems.
• Advanced Analytics Paired With Intuitive Visualizations: SI Suite seamlessly combines advanced analytics with a wide array of data presentation formats including maps, charts and diagrams. The software helps organizations reduce risk and cost, and improve customer satisfaction by identifying potential issues before they occur, optimizing the scheduling and delivery of services, and highlighting anomalies in operational performance.
