A recent press release reports, “Striim™, provider of the leading end-to-end, real-time data integration and intelligence platform, today introduced Striim for IoT, a comprehensive streaming data management solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). Striim for IoT helps companies address three of the most difficult data challenges of IoT infrastructure: 1) managing the tsunami of data generated by IoT devices, 2) integrating IoT data with the enterprise and analyzing it in real time, and 3) addressing security issues associated with the explosion of connected devices. Through enterprise-grade, real-time data integration combined with streaming analytics and visualization, Striim enables IoT-driven companies to make fast, informed decisions based on context-rich, real-time insights.”
The release goes on, “In a recent white paper, IDC predicts that, over the next 8 years, the amount of data created per year will increase 10X to over 160 zettabytes – with 95% originating from the world of IoT. However, the study also indicates that only a very small fraction of that data can be stored. In its simplest use case, the Striim platform enables immediate in-flight filtering, transformation and aggregation of IoT data at the edge. This allows businesses to store only the IoT data they need, and to extend the value of existing storage investments. ‘Even though many companies are using edge analytics for their IoT data, they are really limiting themselves by evaluating and acting on siloed data,’ said Steve Wilkes, founder and CTO of Striim. ‘There are many other sources of data to be considered, such as transactional data, log files, message queues and events, that, when correlated with IoT data, can provide a well-rounded view for decision makers within a company’.”
