Houston, TEXAS, June 30, 2015—Element Blue™, a leading IT consulting firm and solution provider of IBM software products, announced today that it has received trademark protection for its SensorInsight® computer software platform. SensorInsight® is used by companies for the integration, display and detailed analysis of data from multiple sources, providing an environment where users can view and compare real-time and historic data patterns, receive alerts and notifications, and trigger workflows and actions based on the data for use in industrial environments.

Innovation continues to propel Element Blue to provide a variety of solutions to address customer needs with SensorInsight® software.

“We’re excited by this software offering and look forward to helping companies run more efficiently by providing real-time visibility and analytics across all their data systems,” said Element Blue CTO, Joey Bernal. “In the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) SensorInsight® is a key part in our vision of a complete end-to-end platform.”

Presently SensorInsight® is used by companies and cities worldwide that have disparate systems across operations that need to be managed efficiently. Oxfam International, as an example, is using the platform for water monitoring in East Africa and is realizing the following benefits: maximizing the efficiency of the system while providing preemptive alerts can also proactively manage and identify malfunctions in a system.

“It’s inspiring to see our technology being used in ways that have such a real impact on people’s lives. SensorInsight® is very exciting technology because of its ability to pull together so many forms of disparate data, and put them into a single view, allowing managers to monitor thresholds, KPI’s, and trends, and then shorten response times with real-time alerts,” Bernal added.

Element Blue’s SensorInsight® is a Software-as-a-Service solution that is driving new innovation and affordable adoption of companies seeking a platform for rapidly developing IOT based sensor networks.  The “Industrial” Internet of Things (IIOT) brings an opportunity for many industries to capture, aggregate and harvest insights from measurements and data that is exploding relative to sensors or other monitoring devices. Thousands of mature, point solution vendors are providing data intelligence that is segmented for a specific opportunity or value to the operation. SensorInsight® brings this data together in a highly customizable big data software platform with dashboards and reports that have industry applications ranging from roads, railways, power, and waterways, all the way to healthcare uses. The suite of software provides operators and subject matter experts the ability to:

  • View individual data sets, or cross tabulate multiple integrated data sets gathered from multiple sensor networks or systems.
  • Monitor dashboards, allowing for a complete overview of all systems.
  • Provide reports and analysis specific to industry and business needs, allowing users easy access to valuable information that can increase efficiency and save money.
  • Process data in real-time as it comes into the system and send out alerts, allowing for quick response to potential issues before they get too far.

By getting data into the hands of decision makers quickly in a view that is easily understood and can be acted upon, SensorInsight® increases operational efficiency across organizations. SensorInsight® is built using IBM technology and is designed to work alongside IBM’s Intelligent Operations Center. It also integrates with IBM, as well as third party industrial and GIS technologies, such as IBM Bluemix to add additional functionality and customization for specific industry applications.
