Bsquare, Amazon and Microsoft Help Drive IIoT Data Visualizations

By Ken Briodagh December 12, 2017

In a recent announcement, Bsquare, a provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, released new DataV software integrations with Amazon QuickSight and Microsoft's Power BI designed to allow industrial organizations to quickly create and share powerful new cross-system interactive data visualizations and reports. Customers reportedly can now leverage these reporting platforms to take connected device information from within DataV and combine it with other enterprise system data to create new data views that can be critical for business success.

"Data generated from connected equipment is allowing industrial companies to make quicker and more accurate decisions about their business," said Dave McCarthy, Senior Director, Products at Bsquare, and recent guest on the IoT Time podcast. "The ability to quickly create new visualizations of that information by combining it with other data – and easily sharing the results with others in the organization – is critical to achieving that goal. DataV currently offers native reporting based on the functionality within our apps. By providing an open standard connection to tools from third party vendors like Amazon and Microsoft, we're helping customers extend the value they can get out of their IIoT data sets."

These new integrations help extend the functionality of DataV so customers can build even more powerful cross-system visualizations and reports. Teams can create custom visualizations or select from a list of pre-built reports that map to the apps available in DataV.

Amazon QuickSight is a fast, cloud-powered business analytics service that makes it easy to build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and quickly get business insights from data. Power BI from Microsoft is a suite of business analytics tools that enable organizations to connect to hundreds of data sources, simplify data prep and drive analysis. Rich, custom visualizations can be viewed from browsers or mobile devices. DataV also integrates with the Tableau visual analytics platform.
