Àtlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 12, 2014

the Technology Association of Georgia Business Intelligence & Analytics society presented awards to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for Large Enterprise Category, and Columbus State University for Mid Size Category. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta used Analytics to Improve Healthcare in Babies- In hospital intensive care units, vast amounts of monitoring data is collected in the moment only to vanish once it leaves the screen. Using business intelligence and big data technologies, Children’s created a model that enabled them to store and analyze continuous lifesaving vital sign sensor data. The ultimate goal is to understand the impact of stressful procedures and in turn reduce pain and improve outcomes in our most fragile patients.

Columbus State University developed a tool to help student retention and success. President Obama enacted “Complete College America” this year which changes the way public universities are funded. This new “performance based model” means colleges are now accountable to assure students stay in school, progress and graduate. Columbus state developed a tool that measures retention, progression and graduation rates, and delivers information to consolers to assist struggling students. Additionally, they have created a predictive model with automated alerts so that counselors can intervene and be targeted with high-risk students before they begin to struggle.

“This year we had a dozen nominations representing a broad base of innovative companies in Georgia. Many of these organizations are combining internal and external data to predict potential outcomes and shift their strategy to drive new sources of revenue. The face of BI is continuously changing” says Greg Boyd, TAG BI/A Society Co-Chair.

The Judges for the 2014 Awards:

Dr. Jennifer Priestley – Kennesaw State University

Noni Gonzalez – AT&T

Jamie Walker – Elavon

Flavio Villanustre – HPCC Systems (formerly Lexis-Nexis)

“We were fortunate to have strong representation from Business and IT Executives on the panel of judges this year, this is a clear indication of the strategic importance of BI in companies” according to Eric Falthzik, TAG BI/A Co-Chair.

The 2014 Innovation Awards are were made possible by Tibco Spotfire, PwC, Cloudera, Halo Business Intelligence, Software AG, Peak 10, QlikView, and Visionare Partners.

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2014

NEXCOM has won Intel’s Technology Innovation Accelerated (TIA) Award in the Industrial Solution category at the 2014 Intel Developer Forum (IDF14). Outshining its competitors, NEXCOM is the only Taiwan-based company to win the award and is honored for its NIO 100 industrial Internet of Things (IoT) gateway. The award-winning NIO 100 is based on Intel® Gateway Solutions for the Internet of Things (Intel® Gateway Solutions for IoT) and integrates Intel® Quark technology. The NIO 100 can address the need of industrial applications, helping the industrial sector embark on a new chapter for industrial IoT.

To accelerate the proliferation of industrial IoT, the NIO 100 industrial IoT gateway is specially developed to bridge the communication gap between the operation domain and the enterprise domain. Featuring Intel® Quark™ SoC X1000 and fieldbus networking capability, the NIO 100 can consolidate and perform preliminary analysis on the field data collected from field devices—including programmable logic controllers (PLC) and remote I/Os—via serial protocols. In addition, the data can be transferred to an upper layer of industrial control network via Modbus TCP links for big data analytics.

To facilitate the management of the industrial IoT gateway, the NIO 100 is equipped with SMS alert function to monitor field devices and alert factory staff to a situation using text messages. In addition, it is equipped with remote management NEXCOM Xcare™ 3.0 suite to provide remote monitoring, configuration, and recovery of the NIO 100.

NEXCOM NIO 100 encompasses key attributes required for industrial IoT gateway. Combing its compact size and easy-to-use features, the NIO 100 has many application scenarios ranging from smart home in the home sector to building and facility management in the industrial sector. As an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solution Alliance, NEXCOM is proud of its TIA-winning NIO 100 and sees it as a joint effort of our partners. With strong pushes coming across industries for the adoption of industrial IoT, we can see significant progress in the foreseeable future.

NEXCOM also demonstrated the NIFE 100 IoT controller solution. Powered by Intel® Atom™ processor E3826, the solution integrates Intel Gateway Solutions for the IoT, Rockwell* PLCs, InduSoft* SCADA software, and Microsoft* OPC Server software to give a live demonstration of the control. The IoT controller solution can accelerate data exchange and command passing-down, increasing manufacturing efficiency. The NIFE 100 can also take the field data to the cloud to provide insightful information for business decision makers. At the IDF14, NEXCOM’s NIFE 100 gave IDF14 visitors a chance to witness an innovative application that is almost ready for market, more than a blueprint design.

About NEXCOM: Founded in 1992, NEXCOM has five business units which focus on vertical markets across industrial computer, in-vehicle computer, multimedia, network and communication, and intelligent digital security industries. NEXCOM serves its customers worldwide through its subsidiaries in five major industrial countries.
