Internet of Things
In a world where everything connects to everything we have evolved devices, into interconnected devices, into intelligent networks, to become the Internet of Things.
While the rest of the market narrows its vision to the Internet of Things, Xchanging takes a wider perspective. It is not just the Internet of Things, because the process of interconnectivity includes people. People are at the heart of everything Xchanging supports. We deliver innovative technology to help make more sense of increasingly complex lives, including the things within them.
And there are certainly a lot of things. By 2020, CISCO estimates that 50 billion data devices will be connected. So as machines talk to machines more intelligently, Xchanging seeks out opportunities to improve customers’ lives, particularly in the Automotive and Real Estate sectors.
Our work in the Connected Car market enables customers to gather and/or disseminate data from and to remote vehicles. We develop the software, manage the network, analyze the data and present the results via easy to use interfaces on various client devices. With increasing government regulation of the automotive industry around Usage Based Insurance (UBI), intelligent emergency calling (eCall) and stolen vehicle tracking, innovation from Xchanging will continue to evolve.
Similarly, we support the adoption and implementation of intelligent technology for the Connected Building, including the software applications, network management and analytic requirements to improve building energy efficiency. By doing so, we deliver better insight and control across a customer’s property asset base, providing real time feedback and analytics for better decision making.
The Internet of Things is a complex business, but with the ability to deliver throughout the entire technology ecosystem, not just individual products, Xchanging makes everyone’s life easier.
Life is Changing
When technology works, it is no longer technology; it becomes an integral part of life. As our lives become increasingly complex, we rely more and more on technology to simplify, support and remove the tasks that can be more efficiently and effectively accomplished by machines; faster and cheaper than before. In many cases, they are tasks that we never knew could be performed.
We have become used to one machine connecting to another; our PCs connected to our laptops, which are connected to our smartphones, which are connected to our tablets, which are connected to our TVs, which are connected to multiple networks, over fixed lines and over the air. You don’t need Xchanging for that.
Anyone can make the connections from machine to machine. But few can apply technology to enable intelligent conversations between machines. That’s why you need Xchanging.
The exchange of data between machines is expected. For businesses to achieve benefit from the exchange however, the data must be given meaning, value and purpose. Xchanging designs software solutions to enable intelligent business decisions to be made from intelligent data conversations between man and machines.
As the Internet of Things evolves and complexity and diversity of application increases, so does risk to businesses and lives. If a car manufacturer is to update a brake management system over the air remotely and automatically, it needs to work safely, securely, and reliably. Xchanging mitigates risk throughout the project management lifecycle to enable trusted delivery of complex, intelligent solutions throughout the world.
Xchanging provides the framework for the conversation between critical devices. It may well be the 'Internet of Things', but it’s the Xchanging 'internet of people' that builds intelligent applications to manage the conversation between machines and delivers business results.
We enable businesses to compete more effectively using the internet of things. Managing intelligent conversations between machines is in our ‘DNA’, literally - Device/Network/Application. We enable any device to send and receive information across any network, and we build robust applications to manage the process of data transfer and data analysis. As a result, our customers save time and money by reliably changing the state of devices over the air that would otherwise have required time consuming and expensive manual intervention.
In an automotive industry where cars from one manufacturer can easily generate over 2 billion lines of code per day from onboard computers, Xchanging is working with a leading car manufacturer to create the Connected Car. We use the Internet of Things to enable system data to be collated, analyzed, amended and updated. We help make cars safer for drivers, their passengers and every other road user, 24/7/365, all over the world.
In the real estate market, we are helping CBRE, the world’s leading commercial property and real estate services adviser - apply the internet of things to achieve a Connected Building network. Buildings around the world contain hundreds, thousands, millions of devices that all require management and control. Lights, fans, air-conditioning, cameras, sensors, chillers, appliances - Xchanging enables remote 'action' to be taken, for example, switching devices on and off. More importantly, our technology enables the analysis of data to optimize performance of our customers' property assets across its estate. We don’t just switch things on and off, we assess how to optimize. We don’t just turn the lights off at 5.00pm, we measure usage in real-time to determine current requirements across the estate and optimize the entire property asset base accordingly. If usage or circumstances change, the intelligent conversation between machines adjusts accordingly.
Our work with the Internet of Things extends to every corner of the world. That’s the beauty of the connected network; it touches everyone. We work in the telco market enabling smartphones, we support the energy market with sustainable Connected Utilities solutions and leading logistical companies with Connected Logistics solutions; we enable our technology partners to extend their own applications to new customers and markets. Xchanging is helping customers, and their customers and their customers customer to reduce costs, and improve efficiencies every minute of every day.
Xchanging for life.
