Many hardware vendors with classic IT practices in servers, storage, networking, converged and hyperconverged infrastructures have their own tool(s) to collect performance data from its own equipment to assess performance and effect management. The same can be said for IoT/IIoT vendors with end-point devices like sensors and actuators as well as more complex infrastructures and systems involved in communications, energy, utility and smart city applications.
The common limitation across all these vendors is that true systemic analytics on performance is not possible due to the fact that many third party components are involved in these deliverables are not controlled by the principal vendor so data captured will be either inconsistent or non-existent. Furthermore, when these Operational Technologies (OT) need to be connected to Information Technologies (IT) for comprehensive views of systemic performance with a business context, these correlated views across OT and IT systems are currently impossible. Equipment vendors are motivated to manage and monitor its own equipment but not the other 3rd party equipment and applications in the system. First, it’s not their immediate concern and second, it’s just too hard with the number of third-parties involved now and there’s more to come. Due to this, true systemic analytics is not possible and systems are operationally too complex with unacceptably high downtime and high operational expenses due to a lack of systemic automation and controls.
What’s an OEM to do?
Centerity has a purpose built, unified platform that is device/equipment/application agnostic to collect and analyze systemic data from any source creating actionable, systemic intelligence. We have plugin methodologies that allow for the rapid extension of coverage to new or novel technologies. This is essentially an abstraction layer between the devices and the collection methodologies to quickly provided end-to-end coverage and maintain that coverage in these dynamic environments. Moreover, the ability to correlate systemic information across the OT and IT layers gives customers the business intelligence and business value they seek from these investments.
Centerity can create a tight integration with your proprietary equipment and provide cross-correlation of your data with other third-party data transforming siloed data into real systemic information. And, we can do it quickly due to our award-winning, purpose-built, unified platform! Through Centerity, once all these disparate device and applications are tied together, we can help you create real business value while reducing operational complexity, MTTR, and OPEX. This dynamic reduces sales friction and creates a short time-to-value for your customers all leading to quicker follow-on and larger deals.
