Digi Empowers Companies to Take Control of their Business Assets with Enhanced iDigi Device Cloud
-Digi adds data visualization tools and alarms management features to iDigi Device Cloud-
MINNETONKA, Minn. (Sept. 27, 2012) - Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) has released several new enhancements to the iDigi Device Cloud, allowing organizations to more easily improve business operations and maximize the value of their assets. Upgrades include data visualization tools for accessing and storing time-series data and alarm management and notification capabilities. Customers with development capabilities can quickly leverage these new features or can use professional services from Digi to create end-to-end solutions.
"The iDigi Device Cloud helps organizations gain control of their assets," said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. "With these enhancements, we make it easier for customers to use device data to improve business efficiencies and increase revenue."
The data visualization tools are part of the new iDigi Data Streams feature which allows users to upload and analyze time-series data and store it indefinitely on the iDigi Device Cloud. For example, machine temperature data that is recorded every minute can now be presented in charts to show temperature averages over the last hour, day or month with the click of a mouse. This provides greater clarity into an organization's assets, allowing companies to increase device value and efficiency.
With the new alarms management and notification features, users can monitor the health of their device networks with greater sophistication. Users can define specific events that will trigger an alarm and send email notifications. Additional new features include device grouping capabilities that allow information technology (IT) and operations departments to categorize and organize devices within their network, making management of large-scale device deployments easy. With the Scheduled Operations feature, device management tasks such as firmware updates and software downloads can be automated, saving crucial time and operational resources.
The iDigi Device Cloud provides the infrastructure required to access, control, configure and upgrade unlimited devices securely over the Internet. Its secure and scalable platform meets the highest standards of reliability. With the iDigi Connector, a free software download, any device can seamlessly integrate with the iDigi Device Cloud providing instant connectivity.
