The IoT has quickly become a mainstay in the daily operations of business and government, particularly among the supply chain and manufacturing industries. To harness its power, organizations must minimize the time between an event and operational response by holistically managing IoT data through real-time integration, cleansing, contextualization, and mastering; making it possible for downstream analysis. Among ibi’s solutions for organizations seeking to realize the promises of IoT is iWay Big Data Integrator, which ensures IoT data is quickly integrated into existing information to support decision-making, improve efficiencies, and reduce costs.


Advanced and predictive analytics use techniques like statistics, modeling, machine learning, and data mining to analyze information that enables organizations to predict an outcome, according to Dresner Advisory Services. ibi’s WebFOCUS RStat, an advanced analytic workbench, enables organizations to access and prepare historic data and advanced analytic techniques to discover relationships, while providing the ability to create business intelligence applications to distribute the results to end users. As a result, organizations can proactively anticipate what will happen tomorrow, enabling them to identify and respond to potential risks and opportunities.


Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, ibi, said:
“Data is integral for the success of organizations, and a key driver for digital transformation in the new connected world. At ibi, we deliver the solutions organizations need to uncover the insights and competitive advantages to not only survive, but thrive in this new business landscape. We are honored by Dresner Advisory Services’ recognition through these two Technology Innovation Awards for our work in IoT analytics, and advanced and predictive analytics – areas that we are certain will continue to grow in importance in 2018.”


Howard Dresner, founder, Dresner Advisory Services, said:
