New ArcGIS Online Capability Lets Users Explore Big Data from Many Sources to Gain Insights and Take Action
REDLANDS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ArcGIS—Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, announced the release of ArcGIS Analytics for IoT at the Esri Federal GIS (FedGIS) Conference in Washington, DC in February. Part of ArcGIS Online, Analytics for IoT allows users to ingest, visualize, analyze, store, and act on massive velocities and volumes of Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data. This new Esri capability will help organizations take advantage of the insights made possible by the IoT with up-to-the-second data and improved situational awareness.
“With the release of ArcGIS Analytics for IoT, we are launching powerful real-time and big data capabilities for Esri’s Geospatial Cloud,” said Brian Cross, director of Esri Professional Services. “Analytics for IoT is a turbocharger for ArcGIS Online, specifically for using IoT and observational data.”
Analytics for IoT will help users leverage big data more easily, with a broad range of applications including personnel management, asset tracking, and weather hazard monitoring. Many users have been accessing IoT data using alternative solutions but without a ready way to apply geospatial capabilities to the process. ArcGIS Analytics for IoT will complement existing systems with GIS, spatially enabling IoT data from their current providers and simplifying real-time data analysis for users from a wide spectrum of industries, including public safety, transportation, and natural resources.
A subscription-based ArcGIS capability, Analytics for IoT is a software as a service (SaaS) offering available to ArcGIS customers. As the IoT continues to grow in scope and complexity, accessible and versatile analytics will be increasingly essential to enable organizations to take full advantage of the IoT’s potential.
