Unearthing value from the archives, and the data streams, with insight from TIBCO
There are as many different ways of seeing data (and visualizing the bigger picture) as there are functions and roles in the modern enterprise.
Data underpins every business function, at every level, from a high-end business strategist’s statistical analysis tools, down to the telemetry flowing in real-time from an exploratory drilling rig thousands of miles out in the ocean.
Identifying and unifying data is a massive challenge, but it is a specialty area for a new breed of data-first, empowered vendors, who come to the table with highly advanced and focused business tools for all things “big data.”
For enterprises, the best choice in this field is undoubtedly TIBCO, in the opinion of Tech Wire Asia’s editors. The company’s portfolio of business-centric tools gives immediate access to all data and helps stakeholders develop actionable insights to take appropriate action.
TIBCO believes that organizations innovate, collaborate, and grow when they tap the power of their data, which is the transformative energy of the modern enterprise. By unlocking the power of real-time data, TIBCO is able to seamlessly connect any application, device, or data source; intelligently unify data for better access, trust, and control; and confidently predict with real-time data-driven intelligence.
Users can easily search through data available in real-time, including streaming data, and select what is needed from a virtualized directory. From there, it is a simple matter of deploying favored analysis tools to get results.
Simple outcomes are a result of the TIBCO platform removing the tediousness of manual data processing and wrangling.
With big data specialist platforms and distributed computing tech like Apache Hadoop and Spark under the hood, collaboration across the enterprise is possible, without necessarily needing the granular involvement of data science specialists at every stage. That increases efficiency from IT teams, who no longer need to configure clusters of compute and storage lakes, to data analysts who have much of the heavy-lifting done by TIBCO.
By connecting the different and discrete data sources and streams that make up the new resources in the enterprise ecosystem, TIBCO solutions create a closed loop that allows a process of continuous improvement and refinement of analytics and information.
That means decisions are taken more efficiently, with quantifiable information and empirical data available in real-time. The speed of data collation, normalization, and processing mean that no decision need ever be based on historical data that is weeks or months old.
Global carrier expert CargoSmart reported improvements daily, with better outcomes in all business areas:
“We are also able to quickly fine-tune our system, making us more responsive to customer needs. Before TIBCO, it took us about two weeks to do a release cycle. Now with the platform enabled, we do daily releases,” said Ralph Ho, senior manager in customer integration for CargoSmart.
“The high throughput and low cost to scale, as well as the time-to-market, helped us increase the number of vessels we monitor by four times over the past year and a half.”
“We built an application, and the market has recognized our success. We will continue to leverage big data analytics for decision-making and to create business opportunities,” he explained.
Real-time data, immediate results
The capabilities offered by TIBCO Spotfire can, for instance, help push data streams for real-time analysis. Whether those streams emanate from IIoT or IoT devices at different ends of the enterprise (or corners of the globe), or from partner platforms running digital and social marketing campaigns, the TIBCO solution delivers.
With TIBCO, you can reimagine what analysis can do to data that is almost out of date the moment it is captured. With TIBCO’s machine learning-based capabilities, trends and insights inherent in data be unearthed and put to practical use in the business.
As an oil and gas exploration and production company, Hunt Oil needed a faster solution for extracting information from vendor-supplied applications to gain applicable insights.
“We are combining sets of data in ways we were never able to do in the past, leveraging data from our reporting and engineering databases. With TIBCO, we take data from the server and turn it into an asset that is going to make a difference,” said Brian Alleman, a senior drilling engineer.
Using TIBCO’s data streams and messaging solutions, Hunt Oil is able to provide a single, real-time view of analyses and enjoy the benefits of time- and cost-saving, query-the-future insights. The sooner the company gets the data it needs, the faster it can react, saving time and money in the process.
Data has transformed the way Hunt Oil does business. The company uses TIBCO’s Spotfire Data Streams software to “query the future” for conditions that could lead to failure, enabling the team to evaluate and act before it’s too late.
