It was interesting to see a RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT where two companies have teamed up to provide machine data analytics solution to the market. They should thank me for free press by posting this link here However, I want to thank them for increasing the awareness in the market for such an incredible solution, an area that Glassbeam team knows really well for last few years since the day we launched our solution to the market (in 2009).

Analyzing logs and more- a Big Data reference architecture for processing product logs and other data.

Big data and log files

Splunk’s great success in providing the tools for a sysadmin to delve into previously inaccessible log files has opened up the market for deeper analysis on data in log files.

ABCS of log file analytics

Nov 21, 2012

A. Aggregate data from all log files – All log files are not the same – Most people think of sys logs when they think of log files – no thats not all. Logs from product and software companies are bundles containing many files each of different types and formats. Some are time series data of events but others can be stats, session information, usage metrics, configuration etc.

Most people think of sysadmins and IT when they think log files. We at Glassbeam think sales operations and services! Why? Because machine data provides the truth and nothing but the truth about your customers and how they use your products. This information is extremely valuable to enterprises.

How can sales people benefit from log data?

We all have situations where we wished we could instantly analyze data in unstructured formats. For example machine log data or web log data, or log data from applications. Over the years tools for analyzing weblogs (for example Google analytics) and most recently some machine data search tools( Splunk) have made the task easier. However there are files with multi-structured data with each section having multiple formats. Further in many enterprises, log data need to be combined with other structured data to make sense.

With the buzz around Big-Data it is important to keep in mind what can be done with the data. For those of us who have read or watched Money Ball it is apparent that you can use insights derived from data and combine that with your intuition to make better decisions.

Glassbeam gives you the tools to make such decisions in your business, based on unfiltered machine data.

Skills needed for big data analysis?

Feb 06, 2012

A recent article in FORBES opined that Big Data Analysis required Data Scientists and Quant/Excel jockeys. We agree – to an extent.

While these skills are important for an organization that wishes to do everything in-house, there are companies like us that are obviating the need for acquiring this talent. Especially if you are a manufacturer of computer-centric technology products you don’t need to look beyond our SaaS-based OFFERING to easily collect and analyze data.

So, what is spl?

GLASSBEAM

Simply put is stands for Semiotic Parsing Language. But, more importantly it is the core of our technology.

SPL is an intuitive language that describes the structure and semantics of a class of documents. For semi-structured data, as is typical with our customers, it means we can utilize the structure inherent in the data and reflecting it in a high-performance and highly normalized data warehouse.

We’re in the midst of finalizing a case study featuring how one of our customers used Glassbeam to make it’s support organization more efficient. Will be sure to update you when we launch the case study, but can share some key findings,

One of the greatest benefits of using Glassbeam was the usage of threshold events and automatically opening cases in CRM systems (hitherto done by L1 support personnel). This resulted in substantial cost savings.
