BUFORD, Ga., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OMNIMETRIX, LLC, an Acorn Energy (NASDAQ:ACFN) company, is participating in the Annual Generac Dealer Conference and Vendor Showcase at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL, January 7-8, 2013. This invitation is the second for OMNIMETRIX, where Board Member and former Generac Dealer Owner, Andy Briggs, will be presenting two training sessions on how to "Increase Profits & Retain Customers with OMNIMETRIX Wireless Remote Monitoring".
Generator manufacturers and dealers are cognizant of the need for remote monitoring as part of a comprehensive maintenance program. "Our monitoring systems have established a stellar reputation for reliability and performance under the most rugged conditions in the field. That performance is the reason our technology is being deployed in growing numbers. OMNIMETRIX remote monitoring and diagnostic technology ensures that back-up power actually works when the lights go out," said Deena Redding, President & CEO of OMNIMETRIX.
The conference theme, Powering Ahead, is very appropriate as the real power behind the OMNIMETRIX system is OmniView™, the Data Management Center. OmniView™ allows service organizations to be one step "ahead" by incorporating our SmartService™ technology, a "Know Before You Go" philosophy. "Historically, the monitoring of distributed equipment was done manually by men in trucks, driving from site to site," said Harold P. Jarrett, VP of Engineering at OMNIMETRIX. "Today, we completely automate data collection. Consequently, we can improve the ownership experience, while simultaneously improving the operating efficiency of the service organizations that utilize our products and services."
Briggs knows first-hand how the OMNIMETRIX SmartService™ model can significantly enhance a service organization's profitability and potentially change the way they do business altogether. By teaming up with OMNIMETRIX, Briggs said organizations have the opportunity to serve their customers more efficiently, differentiate themselves from the rest of the marketplace, add value, and improve profitability.
In addition to the training sessions, dealers are invited to visit booth #24 to learn more about OMNIMETRIX's product line, the most extensive in the industry. In addition they will have the opportunity to personally demo OmniView ™, which provides system insight through current and historical performance data from anywhere on any computer or smart device

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured?

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
