Founded by a group of highly motivated experts with 15+ years of experience in software engineering and industrial automation, the company has built a robust IoT application enablement platform from the ground up for the Internet of Things and a new era of economic growth and competitiveness. WolkAbout IoT Platform is the “heart and brain” of an IoT solution which allows customers to easily connect, manage, monitor and control disparate devices, transform real-time readings into meaningful data and combine different devices and services into a complete IoT solution. It includes all of the functionalities needed to quickly navigate data-to-application integration without requiring years of IoT expertise. The Platform exists independently between the hardware, connectivity and application layers of the IoT technology stack and enables them to function as a seamless whole. WolkAbout IoT Platform is delivered as a product, not as a service, assuring the highest level of independence to the customers, as well as complete data ownership and control over scalability and security. A bought instance of the Platform is conceived in a form of a lifetime licence for the whole feature set, thus enabling customers to avoid complex calculations (paying per device, per message, etc.) and to scale their business without additional costs. Furthermore, full freedom of deployment enables customers to choose whether to deploy the Platform in the private or public cloud, or on their premises. This means they can build and run their own ecosystem without being tied to any service provider. The main goal of WolkAbout is to bring IoT closer to the masses, which is why WolkAbout IoT Platform is developed to be fully transparent to the customers’ engineering teams. All connectivity and web APIs are documented, and open source libraries and SDKs are available. What is most important is that the Platform comes with free WolkAbout IoT Tool - a suite of highly intuitive web and mobile applications which enable engineers to manage all of the Platform functionalities through simple clicks and drags & drops, giving them a chance to automate things, out of the box. At demo.wolkabout.com developers and innovators can create a free account, which enables them to discover the functionalities of WolkAbout IoT Platform and to test and prototype connected solutions quickly by connecting up to three devices without any cost. WolkAbout IoT Platform is built for performance, agility and security and is proven in solving business challenges across verticals. It handles any scale of IoT implementation, from IoT Prototyping to Industrial Automation, making it the right platform to start the digital transformation with.

Saffron Technology, Inc., a technology company headquartered in Cary, North Carolina, develops cognitive computing systems that use incremental learning to understand and unify by entity (person, place or thing) the connections between an entity and other “things” in data, along with the context of their connections and their raw frequency counts. This approach provides a semantic and statistical representation of knowledge. Saffron learns from all sources of data including structured and unstructured data to support knowledge-based decision making. Its patented technology captures the connections between data points at the entity level and stores these connections in an associative memory. Similarity algorithms and predictive analytics are then combined with the associative index to identify patterns in the data. Saffron’s Natural Intelligence platform is utilized by Global 1000 companies across industries including manufacturing, energy, defense and healthcare, to help decision-makers manage risks, identify opportunities and anticipate future outcomes, thus reducing cost and increasing productivity. Competitors include IBM Watson and Grok.

Founded in 1986, Azteca Systems supports more than 650 customers throughout the United States and around the world ranging in size from single user sites to installations that service millions of people and multiple disciplines. These clients include public works agencies, large and small communities, water/wastewater/stormwater districts, streets and traffic, parks and recreation, facilities, and other organizations involved with capital assets infrastructure and the maintenance associated with its care and operation. Azteca Systems began as a consulting firm focused on delivering mapping support to US Federal agencies. Earning a solid reputation in the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), the company was sought to help public works agencies understand and implement GIS in their organizations. As a result, Azteca Systems’ attention was turned toward the management and care of assets and infrastructure. The company pioneered a new approach to work management with Cityworks and in 1996 released the first iteration of the product. A recognized industry leader, Azteca Systems created Cityworks, a GIS-centric asset maintenance management solution integrated with Esri’s GIS technology. The Cityworks approach is innovative and unique among a cadre of legacy systems, leveraging the inherent value and investment of GIS data.

What is Cityworks? Cityworks empowers GIS to manage both physical infrastructure and land-focused asset management. Organizations allocate considerable resources toward developing and maintaining their GIS, Cityworks capitalizes on this valuable resource. Cityworks and Esri ArcGIS combine to make the perfect platform for designing and creating GIS-centric public asset management solutions. Service requests, work orders, inspections, and projects are used to track citizen concerns and all types of work activities—cyclical or reactive—with their associated costs. Map layers can be created to display information such as all open requests, pavement condition, all repaired potholes for a given time period, etc. Reports of all types can be generated on the fly using various search parameters or set up as customized templates. Cityworks empowers staff at all levels—field workers, call takers, and administration—to get the information they need to perform their jobs efficiently and make wise use of the resources to manage assets and provide services. Adding Cityworks Server PLL to a deployment provides all the land-focused asset management capabilities for permitting, licensing, and code enforcement In order to effectively manage assets, one needs to know what and where they are. At the core of any asset management system is an asset inventory. Cityworks is uniquely designed to utilize the GIS geodatabase as the asset inventory. Though other approaches may interface with a GIS – generally for map visualization – Cityworks truly utilizes the GIS geodatabase as the asset inventory. Cityworks leverages the inherent value of a GIS-centric, enterprise asset inventory by not only managing the assets and their associated attributes (type, condition, installation date, etc.), but also the work done to care for assets. The linkage between assets and work orders is maintained such that the history of completed work orders against a specific asset is viewable and is easily retrieved. If an asset is not yet identified in the geodatabase, Cityworks can manage work performed by associating it to a valid address and later seamlessly updating the history once the asset is reflected in the geodatabase. Unique to GIS, assets can be modeled in real-world representations. Features can be shown on an intuitive map view and visualized in a hierarchy table form. An asset can be represented as a point, line or polygon feature. As well, related assets can be attached to a primary feature, allowing for a visualization of assets that are traditionally difficult to see in map views. For example, a traffic signal can be modeled as a point—the point being the base or mounting platform upon which the traffic signal pole stands. Various items such as crossing signals, pedestrian buttons, junction boxes and mast arms can all be attached to the pole (point) as related objects—each as a separate asset. Maintenance management can only be performed with an accurate asset inventory. Today, most maintenance management systems have incorporated the practices of asset and maintenance management together into a single application. Cityworks is unique in that it also brings the location component of these features into the system environment. Being built on top of the leading GIS software, Cityworks brings together powerful technologies into an intuitive, easy-to-use interface to perform both asset and maintenance management.
