Despite the wonders of digital technologies and the power of data, we still live in a very physical world. In many cases, there is a physical element to taking action on the digital data organizations capture and process. Whether it is during a customer interaction or when it comes to employee productivity, connecting the physical and digital worlds becomes a differentiating factor and driver of business value.
Jibestream helps organizations make this connection. The company ingests indoor maps, typically in the form of as-built diagrams or computer-aided design (CAD) files and creates vector versions of the maps. It then uses a purpose-built content management system (CMS) to integrate and geo-spatially layer data (including IoT data) on top of the maps. It then makes the resulting intelligent and data-infused maps available via an application programming interface (API) so that organizations can embed them into customer or employee-facing applications.
The resulting use cases are wide-spread. Some customers use these maps to enable guests to choose their hotel room. Others are using it to track critical mobile infrastructure within a facility, and others are using it to help security personnel to visualize physical environments and overlay them with contextual facility information. The company’s architecture uses a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model to store maps, metadata, and business rules, but enables organizations to do the data integration locally removing any data security concerns.
