Sixgill – Who We Are
Governing The Internet of Everything
[00:00:05] Sixgill’s operating theme is govern IoE, govern the Internet of Everything. We’re taking noisy data and identifying exception events; data intersections that are pertinent to a business problem. That means we’re identifying a small percentage of things that are actionable.
[00:00:22] Sixgill is predominately focused on sensor data and using technologies that are easy to deploy and advantageous for our customers.
[00:00:28] We do for the developer something very similar to what Android and IOS do for the mobile app developer. They’re providing a standard set of functional services that can be consumed in exactly the same way regardless of what application is built on top of them. At any given point in time, regardless of whatever data intersection, proximity event or whatever you’ve defined as meaningful to you, most of that population is doing something very normal and not pertinent to what you care about. So it’s really a matter of building a system that is really good at identifying out of very noisy and voluminous data, what’s meaningful to me in the moment.
[00:01:06] One of the things that Sixgill noticed is that almost all information that comes in is interesting at a particular point in time. If I collect those data elements, I have to bring it together in a way that I can actually understand what decisions can be made based on where things are.
[00:01:24] The concept of connecting devices to the Internet isn’t new. But when you add sensor data on top of that, the diversity of that data coming in becomes a really interesting challenge to tackle.
[00:01:37] The challenge really resides around the collection of these disparate data sources and then how to bring those data sources in a normalized fashion into the customer’s ecosystem.
[00:01:47] One of the bigger challenges is mapping that data and normalizing it so that your platform understands all of the incoming data in a uniform way. When you’re connecting different types of sensors, you have an additional challenge of protocol that that sensor is speaking, how it’s transmitting its data and then being able to map and normalize that data.
[00:02:10] We have great advantages by being agnostic to almost any sensor data that exists in the market today. So, with one integration of our technology, you can take advantage of any data set that would be valuable to your customers or your organization with one partner.
[00:02:27] The application development model has changed a bit from we’re going to internally hire capability, to we’re going to leverage third party service providers in order to speed their time to market and reduce their development costs which offer a more compelling economics to their customers and improve their profit margins.
[00:02:47] Sixgill. We are a backbone for governance of the Internet of Everything.
