Independent Research Firm Describes ASG as a "Potentially Disruptive Force in Business Service Management" (1)

NAPLES, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/18/07 -- ASG Software Solutions, the originator of the Business Service Platform(TM) (BSP), a true platform for Business Service Management (BSM), was the subject of an October 2007 SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) Analysis titled "SWOT Analysis: Allen Systems Group (ASG), Q3 2007" by Forrester Research in which ASG is described as a "Great IT Management Success Story," and one of information technology's "best-kept secrets." (1)

According to the analysis: "The introduction of Business Service Platform, a business service management (BSM) solution featuring its MetaCMDB, and the UMA [Unified Management Architecture] integration bus has the potential to totally change the way IT thinks about ASG. It is a clear, logical, and easy-to-implement technology that should appeal to many enterprises." (1)

ASG is the only software provider to offer a MetaCMDB(TM) based on a leading metadata repository, ASG-Rochade®. This technology enables ASG's clients to reconcile data from multiple sources and visually analyze business service hierarchies for impact analysis and the federation of multiple CMDBs (configuration management databases) while synchronizing changes with bidirectional adapters.

"Today ASG is a strategic leader in Business Service Management," explains Arthur L. Allen, Founder, President and CEO of ASG. "This recognition is the culmination of more than 20 years of strategic development, acquisition and integration of our technology. With ASG's solutions, IT and business executives now have the ability to visually understand how their business is performing in real time. Our scalable, easy to integrate solutions allow our clients to quickly connect to third-party discovery and monitoring products, providing real Business Service Management in a practical and meaningful way."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
