“Real-time analytics are invaluable to companies with IoT deployments as they provide critical insights into network devices at any given time. For example, with advanced analytics monitoring and reporting on devices across the network in real time, companies can fix maintenance issues before they cause bigger problems or shift resources to offload an overworked device,” said Jim Douglas, president of Wind River, a Predixion Software partner. “We are excited to continue our work with Greenwave and develop next generation analytics solutions for IoT.”
