Leading product manufacturers are early adopters of Glassbeam Support Analytics to deliver higher efficiency and reduce overall support costs
SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2017) - Glassbeam, Inc., the premier machine data analytics company for the connected products and Internet of Things (IoT) industry, today announced that it has expanded its Support Analytics solution leveraging its patent pending Rules and Alerts Engine. The functionality expansion has come through new features that improve analysis of complex machine log data. As an example, leading organizations like Dell EMC are utilizing Glassbeam Support Analytics solution to provide proactive, predictive, and prescriptive customer support for its portfolio of infrastructure products and services.
Support Analytics is Glassbeam's core solution to address the need of all product support organizations that aspire to revolutionize customer experience in the new age of connected products and Industrial Internet of Things. Sophisticated machines generate complex software and hardware logs all the time. Unfortunately, technical support organizations parse through these complex logs to solve escalations one case at a time thus building tribal knowledge and fragmented knowledge base. Glassbeam's solution solves this problem through automation by capturing all known rules, simple or complex, in its Rules and Alerts Engine engine. This solution is now expanded to allow for deeper correlation and richer definition of complex rules logic such as regular expressions against some of the most complex machine log data bundles and file formats. This allows a real time analytics capability to transform and act on incoming machine logs against all historical known issues leading to dramatic reduction in mean time to resolution (MTTR) for support escalations, as well as automating case creation and providing recommendations directly to end users through customer portals.
Dell EMC's Converged Infrastructure (CI) Platforms Division (formerly VCE) has been leveraging Glassbeam Support analytics for its portfolio of converged infrastructure products and systems. Dell EMC offers a variety of storage products aimed at simplifying IT infrastructure and modernizing data centers. Dell EMC is using Glassbeam to provide proactive analytics on key operational parameters across the systems it supports, allowing them to modernize their customer service through advanced machine data analytics. Using Glassbeam, Dell EMC's support organization can now not only easily monitor an entire CI system for potential problems but with enhanced Rules and Alerts functionality they can monitor complex threshold conditions to ensure that support teams can preempt incidences of downtime by proactively addressing potential causes of malfunction.
"Glassbeam's machine log analytics solution not only helps our support team become more proactive at solving escalations but has also helped us automate knowledge base of known issues for internal support group efficiency," stated Nicola Buckely, Senior Director, Global Customer Service at Dell EMC. "With their expanded Support solution, Glassbeam's solution is well positioned to deliver more value to us as we scale our operations and strive to put more automation in our support workflow."
"Machine log files represent a gold mine for uncovering the unfiltered truth on machine health, status and insight into how customers are using connected products," said Glassbeam co-founder and CEO Puneet Pandit. "Unfortunately up until now, these logs only come to the forefront tactically when accessed by tech support engineers to solve issues, but afterwards they get shoved in the dark and remain hidden from normal view. Glassbeam Support Analytics is a key enabler for shining light on this dark data."
Glassbeam will be demonstrating its Support Analytics solution at the upcoming Technology Services World conference (TSW 2017) in San Diego.

As we enter the third era of enterprise business process automation, each era has been punctuated by rise of complexity followed by simplification. These automation waves, fueled by hardware and software advances, drove human, computer interactivity and simplification of programming. The first wave was led by high performance servers, network equipment and storage devices along with software technologies that made business process automation possible. The second wave was led by virtualization of network, storage and computing services to address the efficiency, resiliency and scaling demanded by the global need for business services. The success of these technologies has in turn accelerated the demand for communication, collaboration and commerce conducted by both people and devices almost at the speed of light and created a new requirement for uninterrupted service delivery with high security and optimal performance.
The complexity in today’s information technology management is due to large number of point solutions and tools that mediate the non-functional requirements placed on business processes and available infrastructure that provides the fuel for process execution. Currently, a paradigm shift is occurring that will drive the next wave of simplification of information technology by enabling applications to become self-aware, self-configuring, and self-managing, using application virtualization independent of Infrastructure where they are executed.
While the first era was led by various infrastructure companies such as IBM, Cisco, Intel, Brocade etc., the second by various infrastructure virtualization companies such as VMware, Nutanix etc., C3DNA will lead the next era with its innovative Cognitive Application Area Network Management Platform within Post-Hypervisor “Hyper-Cloud”.
Current State of the Art
Recent trends in enterprise workload management have focused on leveraging multiple cloud infrastructures offered by different service providers and automating the provisioning of resources and configuring end to end application components, their dependencies and definable actions. These advances are aimed at:
1. Reducing time to market,
2. Improve OPEX and CAPEX using commodity clouds and
3. Improve developer agility by automating infrastructure provisioning and application deployment in public or private clouds
Once provisioned, all these approaches however, fall short in addressing the automation of run-time workload quality of service (QoS) assurance dealing with the availability, performance, security, data-compliance, and cost requirements. This is especially important in the face of fluctuations in workload demands and available computing resources which vary with time and circumstance. Examples are order of magnitude variation in pizza orders during a Super-Bowl game, Black Friday demand, increased processing of orders received by an on-line e-commerce application as the result of a promotion etc. With the increased demand for “always-on” digital communication, collaboration and commerce services almost at the speed of light, real-time QoS assurance of applications/workloads without interrupting the user experience or disrupting service transactions in progress provides that extra competitive differentiation.
A New Paradigm:
C3DNA, backed by several patents, has introduced and deployed a new paradigm involving cognitive distributed computing and demonstrated that it can radically transform the enterprise application landscape with self-managing, highly scalable, secure, high performance, and never-fail architecture. The result is a real-time application workload management and run-time quality of service assurance where workloads not only configure themselves but also monitor and control their evolution based on policies that dictate the run-time quality of assurance deviations and corrections. This puts the business application owner in the driver’s seat to dictate policies based on business priorities, monitor the workload quality of service and use proactive management of workload QoS to drastically reduce the OPEX required in addressing real-time QoS deviations.
The new approach has many advantages going beyond the current state of the art providing unique competitive differentiation:
- Infrastructure independence of application/workload run-time QoS: A new application virtualization technology, with cognitive applications,empowered with global knowledge, decouples the application management from the infrastructure management and assures the right resources (CPU, memory, network latency, bandwidth, storage IOPs, throughput and Storage capacity) in real-time to the right application component. This enables applications to:
a. Become agnostic to Hypervisors and independent of Operating System
b. Become agnostic to underlying IaaS and PaaS
c. Be executed on Virtual Machines, or Containers, or Bare Metal deployed in datacenters or Private/Public clouds
d. Execute real time live Application/workload migration (Stateful), with zero transaction loss, between any infrastructures (Public or Private Cloud, datacenters with or without Hyper converged infrastructure anywhere) while providing end to end visibility and control to the application/workload owner, thus eliminating cloud/co-lo vendor lock-in to the customer. It also eliminates the need for shared infrastructure by providing application layer data replication across distributed infrastructures.
e. Provide multi-cloud application/workflow orchestration and life cycle management at the installation time and also during the run time by monitoring application’s vital signs and taking appropriate action based on its global knowledge of how to react based on pre-defined policies with the elimination of moving Virtual Machine and the associated complexity
f. Migrate without requiring V-motion or V-san, and without needing myriad tools (such as Kubernetes, zoo Keepers, Flockers etc. for managing containers) leading to significant reduction of Op-ex to the enterprises.
g. Migrate or live replicate to achieve continuous High Availability and Disaster Recovery without disturbing the service delivery (based on RTO/RPO policy setup) with resilience and with zero loss of transaction through multi-master, active-active, cross-cloud Disaster Recovery.
- Composed application workflows and their management on distributed infrastructures: Workflow QoS assurance automation decouples the application workflow management from the run-time infrastructure management systems (except for provisioning of resources) and assures run-time QoS based on policies, set up by the application/workload owner, without disrupting user experience or interruption to run-time service transactions. This enables applications/workflows to:
a. Avoid vendor lock-in, complexity, tool fatigue, and innovation chaos while providing application/workflow self-repair, auto-scaling and live-migration on an interoperable network of choice of clouds connected using public or private networks.
b. Migrate based on business owner-established policy containing the quality of service to decide what to do to address performance, security and compliance issues and to know where to get resources and do it
c. Allow to be managed by the owner of the applications with end to end service visibility and control across any infrastructure independent of native infrastructure management systems.
d. Allow to be managed with blueprint based workflow configuration and multiple migration policies which can be set up off-line to suite different environmental conditions and user requirements
3. Legacy Application Migration to C3DNA Run-time Management without changing applications, OS or the infrastructure: Make legacy apps/workloads cloud ready and on-boarding them to a cloud of choice without vendor lock-in or the complexity of “Lift and shift”. This is achieved without any changes to the applications or operating system. A discovery based workflow profiling and blueprint creation process allows easy migration of legacy applications and workflows.
- Decoupling Development and Operations of applications, and workflows: Developers develop applications without regard to how they are deployed at run-time and on what infrastructure. Operators define run-time QoS based on business priorities, deploy blue-print based workflows and assure their run-time behavior. This allows:
a. Deploying 99.999 application workflows on even a 99.99 infrastructure
b. Workflow level security in addition to infrastructure based security
c. Real-time data switching and control at the application layer independent of infrastructure allowing geo-fencing and other data-compliance features
In summary, the business workflows, applications and workload evolution are rendered cognitive, and capable of self-provisioning, self-healing, self-monitoring, self-protecting, and self-controlling to adjust their structure and maintain desired quality of service all the time. It allows work-load resiliency and tolerance to fluctuations both in demand and available resource pools at scale while lowering Opex significantly.
The figure above shows a “Post-Hypervisor HyperCloud” (consisting of a select network of cloud choices in a Multi- Cloud environments such as Amazon, Google, Azure etc., or private data-centers interconnected using public or private networks). C3DNA’s cognitive application area network management platform provides application run-time QoS assurance on a globally inter-operable network of cloud islands and enables efficient, on-demand or policy based application mobility among and between clouds, data-centers and on-prem without disruption to existing operations.

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Glassbeam Inc., the machine data analytics company, announced a new white paper authored in conjunction with Harbor Research that highlights the unique challenges faced by the Industrial IoT analytics market in the areas of data management and transformation. The expanding market around connected machines and analytics has been well-known for several years, but it is still widely misunderstood how data transformation and management tools are critical to the development of IoT and Smart Systems solutions. In fact, over 60% of time and cost in a typical IoT analytics project is spent on critical tasks of data parsing, aggregation, assimilation, and transformation before any meaningful analytics and machine learning value can be deployed to create business value from this data.
Harbor Research facilitated discussions with various industry and data experts, OEM manufacturers and end-customer equipment operators, including various customers and partners of Glassbeam, to arrive at its conclusions. It was clear that without an advanced data management and transformation solution in place, users are only scraping the surface of the full value of their data. Most data management and analytics solutions today can analyze sensor data and basic historical data, but these solutions cannot handle the complex machine logs produced by a growing number of advanced machines being adopted across a wide range of industries. New levels of value and insight can be leveraged from this complex data, but this major opportunity requires a new data transformation and analytics approach which the Glassbeam solution delivers.
Key highlights and findings of this report include:
- Data formats and data variety from connected machines will drive significant value: In 2017 alone, the Harbor Research Smart Systems Forecast Model estimates that 4.8 billion new IoT devices will go online, driving over $30 billion in new value related to connectivity and subsequent data gathered and analyzed from these devices.
- Complex machine logs are mainstay of future connected machines: Machine logs are quickly becoming a mainstay of IIoT analytics projects. Harbor Research estimates 4.4 billion machines will generate complex logs in 2017 growing to 13 billion by 2022 at 25.1% CAGR, driving significant value resulting from management and analysis of this complex data.
- Proper Data Transformation is critical to success of machine learning projects: Building a machine learning algorithm may only take up 20% of the total time spent by a data scientist, but significantly longer amounts of time must be spent transforming the data for use before the model can be trained. This process becomes even more challenging when complex log data, with a wide variety of potential variables that cannot be manually parsed in an efficient manner, comes into play.
"The steps required to glean insights from complex advanced machine data are not well understood by OEMs, end users, or the vast majority of analytics solution providers" said Puneet Pandit, Co-founder and CEO, Glassbeam Inc. "As a result, legacy data management solutions built in-house by OEMs leverage traditional data management solution and methods that are cobbled together in a manner that is not equipped to face these challenges. Glassbeam enables the true potential of such projects by providing an end-to-end complex data transformation offering for machine OEMs, end customers and traditional IoT platform providers".
"Data transformation is the unspoken bridge between connectivity and analytics" says Glen Allmendinger, Founder and President of Harbor Research. "As connected machines become more pervasive and intelligent, there is a huge untapped market opportunity for data management, transformation, and eventually analytics with machine learning for multi-structured log data. Glassbeam is purpose-built to address these challenges, allowing end-users to realize new levels of value from data, while also achieving significant predictive cost and time savings".

About Harbor Research
Founded in 1984, Harbor Research Inc. has more than thirty years of experience in providing strategic consulting and research services that enable our clients to understand and capitalize on emergent and disruptive opportunities driven by information and communications technology. The firm has established a unique competence in developing business models and strategy for the convergence of pervasive computing, global networking and smart systems.
PRNewswire -- Glassbeam, Inc., the machine data analytics company today announced healthcare industry's first Clinical Engineering Analytics (CLEAN™) blueprint. This blueprint is targeted towards leading hospital networks and Independent Service Organizations (ISOs) allowing them to leverage machine data analytics for enhanced service management, asset utilization, and effective capital expenditure decisions. The CLEAN™ blueprint is industry's first IoT analytics solution that is multi-modality and multi-manufacturer in scope covering key imaging modalities such as MRI and CT Scanners manufactured by leading vendors such as GE and Siemens. The blueprint is already in production at leading sites such as Novant Health analyzing machine logs and providing proactive and predictive analytics.
Complex machine data challenges are numerous across all industries, but they can be most clearly seen within the healthcare vertical. All healthcare organizations strive to minimize asset downtime, get unfiltered view into asset and operator utilization, while also providing a better experience for patients. With connected machines in the Industrial IoT market, these objectives can now be accomplished by conducting analysis on machine logs from a wide range of medical assets such as MRI, CT Scanners, Ultrasound and X-Ray machines.
However, without a clear methodology, almost all healthcare organizations are woefully unequipped to properly access and analyze this data since machine logs are in complex formats and need specialized data transformation and analysis tools. Glassbeam’s CLEAN™ blueprint does just that – provide a readymade deployment and operational recipe, that can be implemented in days versus months, with pre-configured dashboards allowing clinical engineering and bio medical teams to become data driven in day to day operations.
"As a veteran of clinical engineering programs for over 20 years, I have been eagerly waiting to see someone disrupt the status quo and step up to the plate to deliver a solution like Glassbeam," said Alan Koreneff, President, HTM Operations Inc, and former Vice President of Clinical Engineering at Novant Health. "Starting with high end imaging modalities makes sense, but as more medical assets become equipped with operating systems, the opportunity for complex machine log data analysis will expand from advanced machines such as patient imaging equipment, to patient monitoring equipment and other equipment types."
The CLEAN™ blueprint comprises of 5 components: Medical modalities, Machine logs, Gateway Server (optional), Glassbeam Agent and Glassbeam Analytics. Glassbeam works closely with the IT department of the clinics and hospitals to enable each component in the architecture as well as satisfy all the requirements for documentation and compliance. The Glassbeam solution connects to imaging machines controlled via Windows or Linux based operating system and is approved on several modalities from GE and Siemens.
The Glassbeam agent is a small Java-based program powered by PTC ThingWorx that enables data acquisition and secure data transfer to the Glassbeam Analytics cloud. This agent can run either on the gateway server or on the cloud. The agent is configured to watch the FTP directory and periodically picks up all the dropped files, groups them by the device identifier, and securely transfers the data to the Glassbeam Analytics cloud. Compliance parameters are handled by adhering strictly to the current guidelines and polices enforced by the clinics and hospitals.
Some of the key benefits of Glassbeam CLEAN™ blueprint include:
- Single Pane of Glass to view analytics across multi modalities & manufacturers
- Reduced Unplanned Downtime and reclaim lost revenues with machine availability > 99.5%
- Reduced Support Costs by 20-40% & improve fiscal management across entire fleet
- Informed Operational Decisions with clear visibility into asset & operator utilization
According to industry estimates, a typical MRI machine will experience an operational incident 6 to 12 times per year and will experience downtime for about 5 hours on average per incident. This equates to hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue at a hospital site that has multiple machines across different sites. Glassbeam analytics leveraging CLEAN™ blueprint cuts these huge costs and minimizes downtime by providing proactive and predictive analytics on complex machine logs collected from these machines.
"Using Glassbeam, healthcare providers can recover over 60% of lost revenues each year from imaging machines such as MRI and CT Scanners by reducing machine downtime," says Puneet Pandit, Co-founder and CEO at Glassbeam. "In addition, healthcare providers can save over 25% in support costs by making support staff more productive with proactive and predictive analytics. These are huge benefits and Glassbeam is production ready with its CLEAN™ blueprint to disrupt the healthcare industry with its machine data analytics solutions."
CLEAN™ Blueprint is available for immediate deployment as part of Glassbeam SaaS offerings. For more information about Glassbeam solution CLICK HERE.
