Gartner Cites Seeq in IT/OT Data Integration Report

— Gartner

Seeq is referenced by Gartner in “Data Integration Architectures for Synergies Between IT Systems and Operational Technologies,” published in June, 2015, by Gartner analysts Ted Friedman and Kristian Steenstrup.

According to the report, “Gartner expects that new startups in the marketplace will take a fresh approach to managing time-series process data.”

Integration and insight on combined IT/OT data sets is required to enable organizations to achieve operational efficiencies and proactively monitor and react to real-time conditions. This is an issue that will grow in importance with the expanding use of sensor technologies, mobile capabilities, and the influence of cloud economics for data storage. These developments, together with advanced analytics capabilities, are creating new digital business opportunities that require data integration strategies for IT/OT data sources in order to unlock their potential for improved outcomes.
