Sprint unveils SIM strategy for IoT.
TempoIQ makes it really easy to collect and organize sensor data, but users have often asked us for a simpler way to write data to new sensors.
We've put a lot of effort into making it easy for anyone to get up and running with TempoIQ, but we know that everyone needs some one-on-one help from time to time. That's why we're committed to offering top-notch support for every one of our customers.
We recently published our support policy, which you can read in full on our website. This post summarizes the most important parts of the policy.
When we first launched realtime alerts into early access, we wanted to give our customers a way to get instant feedback from their sensor deployments in the field. We launched with email alert notifications as a first step towards realtime functionality, requiring no programming integration to get value from alerts. Early customer feedback showed that our email alerting feature was good for quick, human feedback, but that machine integration was still a need.
TempoIQ makes sensor data simple with APIs for realtime monitoring, flexible analysis, and scalable storage of data from connected sensors and IoT devices. As a cloud service provider, our goal is to offer a robust and stable sensor data platform for you to quickly build your applications on.
TempoIQ excels at reading and analyzing large volumes of sensor data, but sometimes an application calls for something much simpler: reading a single data point from a sensor. It could be the most recent data point, for instance, to display on a dashboard. Or it could also be a search for the nearest value at a specified time in the past.
We've got a lot planned for this year, and we're excited to share new feature and product announcements with you - our readers and customers.
So starting this week, and continuing every other week, we're writing up new product and features in a "TempoIQ Product Update" post. We'll follow up with a deeper post for larger announcements, like Data Visualization and Single Point this week.
With the Internet of Things, we're building APIs and services that can give us information about the real world. We measure things like the power output from solar panels, the temperature and energy use in large buildings, the pressure on wellheads in oil fields, and the vibration of components in complex machinery. And it’s all for understanding, reacting to, and predicting the behavior of large systems.
But we can’t measure everything ourselves, and external factors play a large role in how these systems behave. One of these key external factors is weather.
Coming from the start up world, I’m fascinated by how technology executives at large companies view innovation. I’ve been around new technology for so long that it’s in my blood - the idea that programming languages like Haskell and paradigms like distributed computing are the norm - but Fortune 500 executives have a much different view. They have large and profitable business units that they have to keep in motion, and while they are looking to the future, they have to stay rooted in the present.
So when John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco, came to speak at a private IoT event in Chicago, I was all ears.
Cisco. Goldman Sachs. Intel. SAP. These organizations have taken all stances on the magnitude and shape of the Internet of Things. As the years have gone on and IoT has developed, their outlooks have gotten broader and bolder. And research firms like Harbor Research are adding significant depth to the conversation.
