VIGIL Trends Revolutionizes Data Accessibility and Business Intelligence for Retail Industry

3xLOGIC, Inc., a leading provider of advanced video analytics and intelligent video surveillance, unveiled VIGIL Trends, the Company’s widely-anticipated Video Business Intelligence (VBI) solution, today at ISC West.

Long seen as the exclusive bastion of “big data” aggregators like SAP, SAS, Birst, and Tableau Software, 3xLOGIC has been actively developing its Business Intelligence (BI) reporting framework (VIGIL Trends) able to capture and disseminate data from a variety of sources. Unlike other BI providers, VIGIL Trends incorporates video data into the equation, resulting in a robust information infrastructure delivering the data necessary for users to make informed, effective and timely decisions about their business, their assets, and their employees.

“What’s been missing from traditional Business Intelligence offerings is the ability to understand the impact human interaction has on an outcome,” states Matthew Kushner, 3xLOGIC’s CEO. “VIGIL Trends is all about aggregating disparate data, and fusing it with human behavioral data. We then are able to extract relevant information and deliver it to our users in a visually-consumable manner. This approach, while easy to describe, has been a technological obstacle no other BI provider has been able to overcome. VIGIL Trends is the only way to obtain a truly dynamic picture of the health and activity comprising your business today.”

With the proliferation of data being made available through sensors, cameras, time/attendance systems, access control devices, and point-of-sale terminals, finding an efficient and effective way to distill all of this disparate data into relevant, actionable information that can be easily understood and acted upon is the basis behind VIGIL Trends and Video Business Intelligence.

“The real innovation and value provided by VIGIL Trends comes in its innate ability to quickly identify outliers that can impact an organization,” emphasizes Charlie Erickson, 3xLOGIC’s EVP Product Management. “We compile and present data in such a way that users can compare data, be it store-to-store, day-to-day, or employee-specific. We then provide the tools enabling users to drill down as granular as they need to get; all in an intuitive, easy to use interface that makes it easy for users to act upon the information presented to them.”

While VIGIL Trends dynamically captures traditional structured data, such as traffic counts, revenue numbers, dwell times, and queue durations, it also factors in pre-defined and customizable exception reports, heat maps, video analytics, even traffic and weather conditions (which can influence store visitations and transactions).

3xLOGIC will showcase VIGIL Trends, the Company’s Business Intelligence solution, along with VIGIL Video Management System Version 7.5, in Las Vegas at ISC West 2014 Exhibition, April 2-4, 2014. 3xLOGIC will be exhibiting in Booth 31057.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.
It’s time to face reality: "Americans are from Mars, Europeans are from Venus," and in today’s increasingly connected world, understanding “inter-planetary” alignments and deviations is mission-critical for cloud.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
