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.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immed...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, addressed the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. Rodney Rogers, chairman and CEO of Virtustream; Brendan O'Brien, co-founder of Aria Systems, Bart Copeland, president and CEO of ActiveState Software; Jim Cowie, chief scientist at Dyn; Dave Wagstaff, VP ...
In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial C...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, ...
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the ...

The adoption of the Internet Of Things (IoT) is growing and its growth is synonymous with the growth of cloud. As per predictions from IDC: IoT and the Cloud: Within the next five years, more than 90% of all IoT data will be hosted on service provider platforms as cloud computing reduces the complexity of supporting IoT "Data Blending." This means that any organization that wanted to transform themselves using IoT has to automatically embrace the cloud too, especially the public cloud. This b...
