Space-Time Insight Opens UK Office to Serve Asset-Intensive Industries in Europe, Middle East and Africa

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Space-Time Insight, the market-leading provider of situational intelligence solutions, has opened a new office in the United Kingdom to serve business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The establishment of a market presence in Europe follows a successful $20 million Series C financing in September 2013 led by London-based private equity fund, Zouk Capital.

Leading the new office is Mike Lewis who has joined the Space-Time Insight team as Vice President and General Manager, EMEA. Lewis has 28 years of enterprise software applications experience, 15 years of which were spent with global enterprise software provider SAP where he worked with large enterprise accounts in the energy, utilities and telecommunications industries.

Joining Lewis is Richard Higgins, an executive with 20 years of enterprise software sales experience in the energy, gas and water sectors. Lewis and Higgins will collaborate with Klaus Heimann, a member of Space-Time Insight's advisory board and former Senior Vice President of SAP AG, to penetrate the European market.

Space-Time Insight has had much success in North America, applying its real-time visual analytics software to strategic operational applications at companies like the California ISO, Hydro One, Southern California Edison, and Sacramento Municipal Utility District. Space-Time Insight has already secured a number of customer accounts in Europe and Africa including a situational intelligence system developed by Unicorn Systems for Czech Electricity Transmission System Operator, ČEPS.

"The opportunities for situational intelligence in EMEA are significant, especially as more businesses are challenged to gain insight into big data systems," said Rob Schilling, CEO of Space-Time Insight. "We are pleased to have an executive with Mike Lewis' experience leading the EMEA team and look forward to many more successes in the region."

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

I write and study often on the subject of digital transformation - the digital transformation of industries, markets, products, business models, etc. In brief, digital transformation is about the impact that collected and analyzed data can have when used to enhance business processes and workflows.
