Insight, ProGlove’s market leading industry analytics platform, keeps getting better and better. Our Vice President of Engineering, Keith Ball, delivered proof of that during our last Smart Factory Lab ON AIR. He seized the opportunity to introduce three novelties. Here’s what that’s all about.
See it through the customer’s eyes. This is a core principle of design thinking. But this idea also defines everything ProGlove does. Insight, ProGlove’s industrial analytics solution, certainly presents no exception to that golden rule. In other words: Every major improvement comes as the result of thorough discussions with our customers and partners.
Easy as pie: the fleet provisioning and the BI connector
The new fleet provisioning in Insight makes for a perfect example. It accelerates and enhances the device management for organizations with a bigger device fleet. We found that this generates some issues for many of our customers. So, rather than managing each device on an individual level, users can now simply place a single file onto their MDM. From there, it gets pushed over to all their devices. And the rest boils down to self provisioning by the devices. Easy as pie!
Additionally, Insight now also comes with a new BI connector. Because we found that ultimately there’s an expectation nowadays for no code solutions. But some questions remain. Such as: How can I get access to my data without having to write any code? How can my B.I people get access to that data? So, this is where our new BI connector comes into play. It lets organizations visualize the same data that powers our API and our front end. This provides a different twist on the same data but provides means to visualize what users deem important.
Cloud connector lets Insight users control their data
And last but not least in Insight: the cloud connector. This provides users with control over their data. Because it allows them to export the data directly from inside of their Insight account into whatever data lake or data warehouse they have. Plus, it comes with the advantage that they can then modify the data later. Yet they can also just attach the data at different sources, and then just own the data outright.
