"Our company’s primary focus has been to help enterprises adopt, leverage, and succeed in employing machine data to create powerful machine assisted intelligence. This stays central to who we are, and what we do as a company,” says Vikas Verma, CEO of ZiMetrics.
Verma believes that the IoT solutions industry today suffers from a lack of disciplinary knowhow in terms of leveraging ‘connected devices’ to generate intelligence. He emphasizes that it is important to understand that the value does not lie in connecting devices; but in creating intelligent systems that can optimize the operations that need to be monitored, controlled, and managed in ways that are beyond the realm of human control.
Pune, India-based ZiMetrics simplifies this process with solutions that help businesses obtain value out of connected systems. ZiMetrics is a software service company focused on creating and delivering IoT, big data analytics, and data science solutions. The firm brings extensive experience in developing business analytics capabilities for Fortune 500 companies and businesses across industries such as Media & adTech, Aerospace, Oil & gas, Finance, Logistics, and Healthcare among others.
ZiMetrics’ principal strategy stems from three core beliefs the company holds central to what they do—Rapid time to market, Extensive focus on data-driven value creation, and Customer success obsession.
Verma says ZiMetrics’ focus and strategy are sharply shaped by these beliefs. The firm’s flagship platforms ProStream, EdgeIQ, ProSense, and Vantage are finely geared towards these goals.
ProStream, is an industrial grade IoT Intelligence platform, developed to support massive concurrent scale, perform real-time analytics, enable streaming machine learning and realize sub-second latency condition detection.
EdgeIQ, is an edge tier IoT platform for Industrial IoT applications. It packs an array of hardware data acquisition systems, an industrial HMI and a real-time data processing engine that integrates with leading ERP and MRP solutions. It provides real-time machine condition monitoring, maintenance management, fault predictions, and operational efficiency insights. It is a vital link between plant OT and IT.
ProSense, is the company’s machine intelligence platform. Developed over deep learning algorithms, the platform incorporates capabilities such as natural language processing, speech to text, acoustic analytics, and image and video analytics. ProSense enables intelligent extraction of facts and insights from unstructured data sources.
Finally, Vantage snaps it all together. A full-featured big data analytics platform, Vantage can be deployed independently, or as an analytic system consuming data and insights generated from ProStream, EdgeIQ, and ProSense. Vantage implements an enterprise data hub at scale, provides pre-built technology and business system connectors and includes comprehensive tooling for rapidly developing full-featured data hubs.
Vikas extols, “With these platforms, we aim to de-risk our customers from complex technology risks typical to this domain; Crash their time to market schedule by over 40 percent; Reduce TCO by over 30 percent, but above all, we aim to prevent what we call innovation-fatigue.” To Verma, the greater challenge in intelligent systems realization is the path meanders and decision complexities that customers have to deal with to get past the essentials before they can embark on the journey of creating value from data-driven intelligence. ZiMetrics’ data platforms do just that. Developed over best-in-class open source stacks and industry leading building blocks, the platforms are engineered for performance, enterprise readiness, but most importantly are engineered for ease of internalization into client’s technology organizations.
ZiMetrics, with its capabilities to address the data-driven intelligence needs for various sectors is growing across verticals and markets. Verma, however, believes this is just the beginning. His mission is to build a world-class data engineering company, which lives by its mission of making customers win - Always!
