Start-up of the week: ThingBook
Silicon Republic start-up of the week is ThingBook, which uses AI to help internet of things and telecoms companies stay secure.
“With the buzz around big data and analytics technologies (and despite the investment), many internet of things (IoT) and telecom companies struggle to extract actionable insights from their equipment data,” explained Roman Ferrando, founder and CEO of ThingBook.
“In this sense, the primary purpose of ThingBook is to allow data-driven decision-making processes, reducing the time, cost and uncertainty in the adoption of advanced data analytics solutions.
ThingBook analyses large volumes of data, which are in turn processed in real time to perform data harvesting and mapping, data profiling and in-depth analysis, as well as provide visualisations for human consumption and integration with external systems.
