Vantiq enables the building of smart systems that integrate and augment new technologies such as IoT, mobile, and Cloud with existing legacy applications. These smart systems will dramatically increase the effectiveness of both technology and people. This is the next generation of computing, built upon what already exists and the new technologies being introduced. Physical sensors and mobile devices provide streaming data, software analyzes it in realtime, and actions produce either an automated response or facilitate collaboration among people.
As logic (software) proliferates everywhere, business operations can be enhanced to provide new functionality enabling opportunities never before envisioned. Companies can move into new markets. Organizations can be more engaged with their customers in far more informative and collaborative ways.
The systems built with Vantiq can run anywhere in the environment from the Cloud to the Edge. Vantiq SaaS applications are rapidly developed in the cloud and automatically partitioned (separated into components at any level of granularity) and distributed to the appropriate computer systems. Components in the cloud typically perform consolidation, data analysis and store big data. The edge computers perform local processing for realtime analysis and action. The location of logic can be dynamically changed as the topology changes or business rules are modified. Vantiq applications are developed as an abstraction above the physical environment so they can be easily rearranged.
Anything in a Vantiq system can be modified and changed in realtime, in the Cloud, on a single edge computer or thousands. Services and microservices can be dynamically added or removed. Smart systems cannot allow downtime.
Realtime Collaborative Systems
Systems are more and more often being used to automate things. However, in today’s complex world, there is an advantage or requirement to collaborate with people. Vantiq supports interactive communications with the appropriate people complete with recommendations, follow-up, and notifications of important changes. These realtime collaborative systems enable computers to do what they do best while keeping people involved.
Vantiq smart systems augment and integrate new technologies to be most effectively utilized for true advantage.
