Why Embed iHub?

Adopting iHub Gives OEMs Integrated Solutions that Immediately Enhance
and Modernize the Reporting Functionality of Appliance Applications

As technology continually evolves, users have been getting smarter and more demanding. They expect their appliance applications to provide intelligent, interactive data reports. Customers want to zoom in and out of data visualizations to examine and analyze the underlying data to find answers to their questions.

In order to monitor vital information about the status, usage, health, and vulnerabilities of technology appliances, users rely on two key components for analysis: reports and dashboards. As modern appliances for storage, networks, security, hardware, and software become more complex, high-networked, and data-driven, they require more than just static, canned reports to meet the needs and expectations of users.

However, most appliance companies are often unable to develop sophisticated embedded reporting solutions and visualization tools on their own without incurring high costs and delaying their product's time-to-market. To save time and resources, they partner with third-party vendors, like OpenText Analytics, for embedded BI and reporting technology to integrate into their branded products.

Build End-to-End Internet of Things (IoT) Systems

M2M Embedded Analytics and Reporting Solutions

Measuring Internet of Things (IoT) systems with machine to machine (M2M) technologies is becoming a key intelligence metric for monitoring and controlling aspects of retail, transportation, logistics, defense, health, and other industries. Collecting patterns of information in real time and correlating that data with other business metrics leads to powerful insights for optimizing resource allocation and distribution. This is where people and traffic counters become invaluable for M2M learning because of their unique ability to offer live insights about human traffic patterns. 

To make data actionable for Internet of Things (IoT) appliances, iHub can be embedded to process, analyze, and aggregate M2M historical data, visualizing that information in interactive dashboards. IoT systems are fueled by the concept that the more data that is acquired, the more business value you can extract, resulting in:

  • Optimizations in business operations

  • Opportunities for new partners and new sources of revenue

  • New market strategies

  • Innovative business models
