    SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/15 --  Glassbeam, Inc., has been named the bronze winner in Most Innovative Company of the Year (Small) in Best in Biz Awards 2015 International, the only independent global business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

    Glassbeam's solution takes real time streaming data from assets connected to the internet and translates that information into actionable information. Beyond asset tracking and management, the company's analysis of log data files can provide preventative and predictive maintenance, and better product intelligence leading to improved product roadmaps.

    "We are extremely pleased to be one of the winners of this year's award," commented Puneet Pandit, Glassbeam's CEO. "It is particularly gratifying to know that we are receiving this recognition from editors and analysts out of so many competitors."

    More than 250 public and private companies representing all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards' third annual International program. Best in Biz Awards 2015 International honors were presented in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Support Department of the Year, Enterprise Product of the Year, Best New Version of the Year and Best New Product of the Year.

      

    Best in Biz Awards' uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panel. Only writers, journalists, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges each year. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards is able to leverage the experience and expertise of an influential group of global opinion makers to determine award winners.

    Development teams are translating streams of real time machine data into actionable information to improve the product development process

    By Puneet Pandit, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Glassbeam, Inc. (Network World) 14 July, 2015 00:17

    Studies show that around 40% of products fail. But what if product designers could understand what features are most and least popular, which components tend to fail sooner than others, and how customers actually use products versus how designers think they use them? And, what if product developers could then utilize these insights to develop products that perform better, potentially cost less and, most importantly, are aligned with actual customer needs?

    Innovative product development teams in pretty much every industry are beginning to look at ways to translate enormous streams of real time machine data into actionable information to improve the product development process by understanding where product innovation is necessary, which features are most desirable, and how to lower their overall cost of ownership.

    For some time now, many companies have embedded sensors in their products that are producing huge amounts of information about performance. However, this machine data has traditionally been difficult to collect and analyze, due to both the enormous amounts of data involved and the different types. Data comes in a variety of formats, such as text logs, XML, JSON, CSV or SNMP. There are different data class categories, like event messages, configuration blobs or statistical dumps. Data is likely to be in different protocols, such as email, FTP, SFTP, as a stream or as a batch log file.

    But advanced analytics companies have developed new solutions that are able to handle the volumes and disparate types of data involved in real time, making machine data analytics practical and affordable for a much wider range of organizations.

    Achieving a single point of truth

    In order to develop and market new products most effectively, you need to create a "single point of truth," or a body of data and insights that is comprehensive, accurate and timely.  

    These data and insights will provide all disciplines within the company involved in designing, manufacturing and marketing a new product the information they need to make critical decisions product features, pricing, distribution and related functions. Essential elements of an information platform to provide this single point of truth include:

    • *A centralized data repository that can capture terabytes of structured and unstructured operational data
    • *Analytical tools that can describe and create meaning and relationships between elements in the data
    • *Reporting capability on how customers are using existing products, performance information on components within existing products, et al. 
    • *Dashboards and similar elements that enable new product development and other teams to create customer analyses and drill downs  

    Streetline harnesses machine data

    Streetline is a good example of how a company is using what some are calling IoT analytics to build out new products. The company recently launched Streetline IoT Gateway, part of the company's mission to create smart cities and smart campuses. Analyzing the data streaming into the Gateway, Streetline realized they could build a successful business by harnessing smart data and advanced analytics to help cities, universities and campuses provide guidance on available parking and parking enforcement.

    The Gateway allows Streetline customers to more effectively capture data from in-ground sensors and video cameras, and make more effective decisions. Better parking is the first solution to come out of the Gateway, and is not only a large revenue generator for cities, but has the potential to decrease congestion, and build a nice revenue stream for Streetline at the same time.

    Streetline developed its new gateway jointly with Cisco. The Gateway integrates Streetline's low-power mesh network and Cisco's Smart+Connected WiFi solution.

    Another example is Trane, which designs and produces HVAC equipment. The company began to insert sensors into its equipment and the data analysis enabled facility managers to think of and operate various HVAC and other devices as a single large system. For example, rather than simply turning on at the beginning of the day and off at the end, a "smart" HVAC system will now operate based on the building's occupancy. In the future, Trane plans to sell "outcomes" versus equipment; e.g., ensuring the air within a facility remains at 72 degrees.

    IoT analytics enables new product teams to completely rethink the solutions they develop and how they are supported. With IoT analytics, the only limit to designing winning new products is the creativity of the new product development team.

    At Glassbeam, Puneet and team are focused on a mission to create a new category of Big Data business app around machine data analytics. The premise is that any high technology product, network or cloud is increasingly capable of generating copious amounts of rich but unstructured machine data, that once mined can provide tremendous business and operational insights for its manufacturers and users.

    Helping Cisco’s Customers Deliver Applications Faster with Reduced Complexity

    C3DNA, Inc. is demonstrating at Cisco Live (in the Cisco Intercloud Services booth) – their application-centric, policy-driven management platform for apps running in public, private and hybrid Clouds. A live demo shows “How Policy-Driven Management enables IT to increase efficiency and dynamically scale anywhere”, helping Cisco’s customers deliver their applications faster.

    Using C3DNA and Cisco Intercloud, enterprises can have a complete cloud strategy, allowing application visibility and control across private and hybrid clouds for both legacy and new apps. These apps can then be deployed securely and compliantly across hybrid clouds with application awareness, dynamic life-cycle management and real-time automation. Through policy-driven management that is independent from infrastructure or systems management C3DNA's Application driven policy platform puts the application or business owner back in control.

    The C3DNA platform was developed to bring Telco- grade reliability and trust to the data center.  It enables IT to deliver the intent of the application anywhere via application driven policies that are dictated by business needs. “We quickly discovered the C3DNA platform could provide an abstraction layer between business objectives definition and the enforcement of policies within the Application Centric Infrastructure, as well as introduce increased resiliency providing a clear hand off between developers and operations” said Ken Owens, CTO Cisco Intercloud Services.

    Mr. Ken Owens went on to note: “We have been very pleased with the integration of C3DNA’s platform with Cisco’s Intercloud services. We have worked closely with them as well as providing feedback on all aspects of their technology. Based on early successes and the milestones that have already been achieved we now expect to integrate their technology with Cisco’s Inter-cloud Fabric offerings”

    “Our application-centric approach applies infrastructure agnostic meta- containers for monitoring and control connected by our Application Area Network, allowing our clients to deliver their applications anywhere without the cost and complexity of the multitude of orchestration and management tools. We want to give IT the visibility and control to deliver applications aligned with the needs of business and allow developers to focus on application development not its management.” said, Paul Camacho C3DNA’s CEO.

    "These new customers are significantly important because they not only show the benefits of examining rich analytics, but the results can result in fundamental changes for both industries," commented Puneet Pandit, CEO and co-founder of Glassbeam. "That is a key part of our unique selling proposition. We aren't just providing robust business IoT analytics; we are looking to create fundamental changes in service, support and product enhancements across all industries."

    In Romi's case the analysis will increase Romi's Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) by increasing uptime and reducing the mean time to resolutions for any equipment problems.

    Brazilian based, Romi S.A. is a global leader in Machine Tools, Plastic Processing Machines and Rough or Machined Castings. Its products and services are marketed throughout Brazil and exported to five continents for industries such as automobile and automotive components manufacturing, consumer goods, agricultural machinery and implements, and industrial machinery and equipment.

    Improving the economics of operating EV stations is a critical component to the growth of these installations. Keeping pricing as low as possible is essential. The Glassbeam platform can take in streaming data from the stations, parse and analyze that data in real-time, and provide feedback to streamline their service, lower their maintenance costs, and provide insights for improving future generations of EMV station equipment.

    "Our team has extensive experience in deploying highly efficient and integrated smart grid software solutions," notes Vipul Gore, CEO and President of Gridscape Solutions. "We look forward to partnering with Glassbeam in designing and deploying low-risk and low-cost software solutions that result in efficient operations. We anticipate Glassbeam's powerful analytics capabilities will make a significant contribution to our objective of creating economically attractive smart grid offerings."

    "The Cleantech market is exploding," adds Puneet Pandit, CEO and founder of Glassbeam. "In this case, our solution to Gridscape's challenge demonstrates that our platform is versatile enough to manage and interpret the unique data coming from EV stations. However, we can provide that same data monitoring and intelligence to every aspect of this expanding field."

    He added that the sales in different verticals show the growing understanding and adoption of IoT analytics. "We are intent on penetrating both these markets, but ultimately our goal is to blaze a trail across all industry segments," he concludes.

    Nearly as long as there have been coffee shops and carwashes, all manner of businesses have handed out buy-10-get-one-free punch cards and hoped to reap the rewards of this simplest of loyalty marketing campaigns. But a new day is dawning.

    Smartphones and loyalty apps have begun offering small businesses enhanced program features and automated administration capabilities once affordable only to large companies like airlines and hotel chains. These capabilities also offer the equivalent of a real-world psychology lab for easily evaluating the effects of offerings and incentives on customer loyalty. 

    “All organisms, in different ways, are drawn to goals,” said Oleg Urminsky, who teaches marketing research at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. “The closer we are to achieving our goals, the more motivated we are to keep doing something. As mice on a runway get closer to a food pellet, they run faster.” Similarly, he said, “as people get closer to having a completed card, the time between visits gets smaller.”

    Studies have also shown the psychological benefit of preloading a frequent buyer card with a couple of punches to make the dangled reward appear closer. A carwash that started one set of customers with a buy-eight-get-one-free card and a second set of customers with a 10-wash card already punched twice, found a few months later that nearly twice as many people (34 percent) given the illusion of a head start toward the same goal had redeemed the card as people (19 percent) who had to earn their first punch. Two researchers, Joseph Nunes and Xavier Drèze, have called this the endowed progress effect.

    Though useful, punch cards have shortcomings. For one thing, they’re no good if left behind on the refrigerator or misplaced. Do some cashiers triple-punch the cards of friends? Sure. Moreover, the motivating effects tend to fade, said Dylan Bolden, a partner at the Boston Consulting Group and co-author of a study last year called “Leveraging the Loyalty Margin: Rewards Programs That Work.”

    “If that’s the only thing you do, the punch card becomes more of a price promotion than a loyalty program,” Mr. Bolden said. In essence, the punch card is primitive compared with dynamic, app-powered loyalty programs.

    Capriotti’s, a 106-store chain of sandwich shops in 16 states, expects to introduce an app-based loyalty program early this year that its chief marketing officer, Jason Smylie, says will enable shop owners to enrich and fine-tune a prior punch card rewards program. “In addition to buy-10-get-the-11th free, we’ll have a points-based program where customers earn points and status per dollar spent,” said Mr. Smylie, explaining that rewards will rise with increasing status and core customers “will also get surprise and delight offers.”

    The software, developed by the company Punchh, will enable Capriotti’s to award a free drink or a dessert — as an unexpected reward at the cash register — to highly valued customers on perhaps 20 percent of their visits. “You’re not only rewarding the customers who are coming more frequently, you’re also giving people an incentive to show up,” he said. “I can come in and potentially get something for free. That’s awesome.”

    And effective. Psychologists have a name for this kind of reward — random intermittent reinforcement — and know it as a powerful way to encourage repeat behavior. Think no further than slot machines. Casinos have zeroed in on the gambling habits of their patrons through the use of smart cards rather than coins. Retailers can also now better know their customers through loyalty apps, which may also use data from Facebook profiles.

    “With apps you now can target specific customers and influence specific behaviors and keep track of all the results and understand the results,” Mr. Smylie said. “Because the check-level detail is now tied to a customer’s profile, we can understand what their purchasing behavior is, what their interests are and cross-reference that against their social media profiles and market to them more effectively and involve them at a deeper level with our brand.”

    Jitendra Gupta, an engineer and entrepreneur with a long background in customer-relations management software , said he started developing Punchh in 2010, when “social and mobile were coming together and we wanted to build a program for restaurants and local businesses to get to know their customers and bring them back.”

    The goal, he said, was to use social networks to drive word of mouth. If a visitor to the company’s Facebook page was referred there by a friend, the friend will be sent a notification saying, “Congrats, you just won an extra reward for referring your friend.”

    Mobile loyalty apps, Mr. Gupta explained, can also enable small businesses to run scratch-off sweepstakes programs or more involved games, along the lines of McDonald’s Monopoly stickers contests, long the province of Fortune 500 companies. Smartphone screens can also host engaging games — say, catching falling fruit or objects related to the business — and award a free menu item for reaching certain achievement levels. When children win, he said, the entire family may come in to redeem the reward.

    “Clearly, this is the best of times for loyalty programs,” said Mr. Bolden of the Boston Consulting Group, who recommended that small businesses “focus on the non-earn-and-burn aspects of the program.” He suggested that spas consider a separate waiting room for their app-identified best customers.

    “Or when the treatment is over, you hand the customer a glass of Champagne and strawberries,” he added. “If you’re an apparel retailer and you get in a new line from a new designer, invite the top 5 percent of your customers in first so they can see it before anyone else.” The point is that many effective rewards need not cost much to bestow.

    Moreover, smartphones that can pinpoint a user’s location may provide additional marketing opportunities to people who’ve downloaded loyalty apps. A mobile technology developed by Apple, iBeacon, allows businesses to know if a regular customer is near their storefront and ping them — or even greet them by name as they cross the threshold.

    For Dave & Buster’s, a food and drink establishment for adults built on games, “staying in the mind-set” of customers can be important, said Kevin Bachus, senior vice president for game and entertainment strategy. “We have to be in their decision set when they’re thinking of what to do tonight or we may miss out.”

    Part of the answer, he said, is mobile apps, but the challenge is figuring out timing and frequency of messages, and not to overdo it.

    “If you bombard them — say, when they’re on the way to their kid’s school — with a pop-up that says, ‘I notice you’re within a half mile of a Dave & Buster’s, come on in,’ that’s going to be aggravating,” he said. Better to ping New York Giants fans on Sunday, offering half-price beers to those wearing Giants blue.

    Professor Urminsky of the University of Chicago said a strategy built on mobile apps to reward loyalty — in essence, “a loyalty platform rather than an isolated loyalty program” — opened new possibilities for small businesses. “If it’s used wisely,” he said, “I think it will be a game changer.”
