Companies like Amazon, Google, and Netflix have done an amazing job of providing a great customer experience. For example, when you use Google’s search engine, it quickly figures out if you are just researching a topic or planning to a buy a product/service.

Netflix offers suggestions of movies you may enjoy based on your viewing behavior. How do they do this?

Not all wars are bad. Surprisingly, there are wars that most individuals and groups enjoy – wars over pricing. Nothing is better than watching some of the biggest companies punching each other out with a “new pricing strategy”. This is a war that is good for the customer since the end result is an increase in goods delivered at a new reduced price.

Recently you might have been a part of a conversation that went something like:

"Can we reduce our IT infrastructure cost by 10…15% this year?"

"No boss, only by 30…40%"

"Are you insane? How?!"

The question of ROI comes up quite regularly in our sales discussions with prospects. It is natural for our buyers to delve on that topic since many evaluate GLASSBEAM SPEND WITH INTERNAL EFFORTS. We are no doubt on an evangelistic mission to convert naysayers inside product companies who think they can "build" such a solution on their own.

Typically there are three parts of GLASSBEAM VALUE that constitute a very compelling ROI:

In PART ONE of the Glassbeam for Medical blog, we explored how Glassbeam helps customer support save turnaround time and avoid unnecessary replacement costs. Support is one use case that benefits from machine data analytics. But the benefits of such a solution can span across the enterprise from customer support to engineering to sales and marketing.

Happy New Year – and what a year it’s been.

With the technology advancements of phones, tablets, glasses, clothing and machines over the last year, there are volumes of unstructured and multi-structured data collected from machines and connected devices, and it’s growing at a dizzying pace. The Internet of Things is quickly turning into the Internet of Everything – in today’s always-on, always-connected world, and machine data is everywhere.

Splunk announced today that it acquired Cloudmeter to enhance its capability to analyze machine data. While tools like Splunk have tremendous value for internal data centers, companies are starting to embark on more complex Big Data projects with multi-structured machine logs. The rapidly exploding market of physically connected devices and the machine data generated by the “Internet of Things” is driving the need to leverage this data beyond simple troubleshooting needs.

I like the word “ontology”. It has a nice ring to it. Wikipedia defines Ontology as “knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships among those concepts”.

The ability to gather and harness data from machines and devices connected to the net is increasingly becoming a source of competitive advantage for those who have been thinking ahead. GE is widely cited, with their INDUSTRIAL INTERNET initiative. Cisco has been talking about INTERNET OF EVERYTHING for a while. At Glassbeam, we have been focusing on the infrastructure required to process and analyze machine data for over 3 years now.
