HStreaming Funded to Turn Big Data Intelligence into Action

HStreaming, the creator of in-time Big Data analytics technology, has announced a funding round led by Atlas Venture. HStreaming’s award-winning technology is solving some of the hardest problems involving low-latency Big Data for various industries including government, telcos, adtech, and finance. It offers a unique analytics platform that continuously analyzes data in real time and renders it actionable, so that companies can respond to information in time.

“This software platform is a new category of fully-integrated analytics that will redefine how we interact with Big Data. It allows for in-time analytics and in-time translation of analytics into monetize-able action. HStreaming truly stands out from the Big Data crowd and we are excited to be their partner and investor,” says Christopher Lynch, a partner at Atlas Venture and former CEO of Big Data company Vertica Systems (now part of HP).

“Chris brings great operating experience and a shared vision about how Big Data can be used to make an impact on our lives. We are committed to giving unprecedented visibility and the tools necessary to take action on data as it comes in fast and furious,” said Jana Uhlig, co-founder and CEO of HStreaming.

The Power of In-Time Big Data Processing

Big Data is coming at such speed and volume, that in many applications it is no longer possible to first store and then look for insights later. It is way too late to learn about a network outage, forest fire or customer attrition an hour later. Companies need to know and act on information as it is happening or, better, predict it before it happens. This is what HStreaming does: analyze Big Data in real time, as it is still in flight, and make it actionable.

Airports deploy hundreds of surveillance cameras, but identifying a threat is like finding a needle in a haystack. The challenge is how to effectively analyze data feeds across the many installed video cameras, then combine and enrich it with more information sources, to bring accurate intelligence in real-time without false alerts.

“When somebody enters a secure area in an airport, it may not be enough to trigger an investigation since the person may simply be lost. However, when you look for behavioral patterns of that particular person as he moved through the airport, and combine it with other data sources such as facial recognition all in real time, you can get an accurate model to identify whether it is a threat at that very moment,” says Jana Uhlig. “This is true not only for airport security, but for mission-critical business applications as well. Deriving real-time intelligence from Big Data is a key component in capturing its value.”

Companies are being swamped by data that is generated by sensors, cameras, network switches, and equipment of which many are installed in remote locations with poor connectivity. While these sensors often emit information on continuous basis, most of the information never makes it to a datacenter for analysis and thus the value of the data is lost. HStreaming’s platform integrates all equipment with the datacenter into a single fabric that automatically chooses the optimal location for processing, whether on the edge or in a datacenter. The multi-layer analysis is happening in real time and brings unparalleled visibility into data that was underutilized before. That allows companies to gain unprecedented agility to their operations.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
