Afero Data Explorer reduces cost and complexity, accelerates data transformation with AI-ready structured data and easy-to-use data query
Afero, the next-generation IoT platform company, today announced a new product that advances the creation of Data Supply Chains for customers. Available to all Afero customers, the Afero Data Explorer saves customers’ time and money by providing fast and easy query access to structured data that is ready for Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications.
“There is no AI without data and, increasingly, there is no data without IoT,” said Joe Britt, Afero Founder and CEO. “The new Afero Data Explorer software runs in the cloud and helps you create a robust Data Supply Chain, providing instant insights in its own right, and saving on third party expenses and employee training.”
The Afero Data Explorer simplifies the design, rapid execution, and visualization of complex queries across historical or time-series data. Customers can analyze any of their devices, or fleets of devices, without the need for technical expertise, or familiarity with database access methods such the Structured Query Language (SQL). In addition, the Afero Data Explorer provides the ability to save query templates, so that customers can easily reuse them, and a variety of visualization tools, such as line, bar, pie and donut charts, that aid in understanding the results.
The Afero IoT Platform™ begins with a structured data model, which provides the context for integration with AI and Machine Learning (ML) applications. It also ensures security and controlled access to device data.
The Afero IoT Platform has established a strong reputation for security, speed, and robustness. In addition, Afero has built a strong set of partnerships across the IoT technology spectrum as it leads a new approach for end-to-end IoT, with notable projects such as Kenmore and D-Link. In 2018, an independent study of the IoT patent landscape, conducted by Parola Analytics, placed Afero in the Top-5 organizations globally.
The Afero next-generation IoT platform accelerates time to market, provides hardened security from sensor to cloud and from factory to customers, simplifies onboarding to help maximize customer connections, and uses data ontology to streamline machine learning. The Platform is supported by elastic, multi-cloud services that deliver reliability and responsiveness, and a new software engineering model that unifies embedded, mobile, and cloud development.
Afero has assembled world-class mobile, hardware, security, and cloud veterans from Google, Apple, Nest, Danger, Microsoft, Amazon, Twitter, and Netflix. To learn more about Afero, please visit www.afero.io
