Circonus Releases Industry Paper on How Machine Data Intelligence Is Solving Business Challenges and Delivering Transformative Results

Machine data intelligence expert highlights the competitive advantage of leveraging high-volume, high-frequency data processed in real time

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 19, 2019 — Circonus, provider of the first machine data intelligence platform built to handle the volume and frequency of data seen in today’s global IT infrastructure and IoT deployments, today announced the release of its paper, “How Machine Data Is Solving Today’s Business Challenges with Tomorrow’s Technology.” The paper examines how machine data intelligence – insights that result from analyzing data at scale – drives measurable business value, and delves into innovative applications and use cases across four industries including: media and entertainment; smart grid; supply chain and logistics; and advertising technology.

It’s estimated that over the next 15 years, machines such as servers, sensors, and other devices will outnumber humans by over 100 to 1, unleashing an explosion of data that will outpace current technology’s ability to capture, process, and provide valuable insights. The paper emphasizes the critical need for enterprises to evaluate their capacity and technology to handle this rapidly increasing data volume, and use it to optimize their business practices, provide better customer experiences, and drive revenue growth.

“Businesses are realizing how incredibly important their machine data is to unlocking insights that could transform their business,” said Bob Moul, CEO, Circonus. “Those that harness machine data intelligence will find new sources of competitive advantage in areas such as improving services, retaining customers, reducing costs, and optimizing operations.

Machine data intelligence, harnessed from billions of metric streams, in real-time and with precision, can not only lower an enterprise’s costs, but also mitigate potential downtime and prevent problems before they happen. This is vital, particularly in industries such as media and entertainment, energy, supply chain and logistics and ad tech.

  • Media and Entertainment: Deliver unparalleled uptime and superior stream quality for an optimized customer experience. Plan for seasonal viewership spikes with multiyear retention and predictive analytics.
  • Energy: Benefit from real-time visibility into complex smart grid networks to drive unprecedented business insight, value, and efficiencies.
  • Supply Chain and Logistics: Transform business operations by collecting real-time information and insights to increase productivity, reduce expenses, and improve safety.
  • Ad Tech: Eliminate unexpected outages and maximize revenue opportunities with real-time alerts, fault detection, and predictive analytics.
