    Introduction to Accelerators

    Accelerators represent a new approach to how Spotfire® engages our customer ecosystem: we created an elite team of Spotfire® field engineers and asked them to solve the biggest, baddest Digital Business innovation problems that our customers are throwing at us today using IoT, sensors, Spark, and Hadoop. And we asked them to solve these problems in a way that's extensible and re-usable based on design patterns. And we asked them to build these solutions in a scalable, high-performing way, applying continuous integration and testing. And we asked them to document and package the solutions, for free community distribution.

    The result is a Spotfire®-led, community-engaged way to help our customers solve the "blank sheet of paper" problem that plagues most IT organizations.

    Our goal is to change the IT-to-Line-of-Business relationship when it comes to Digital Business transformation. Accelerators help IT say "yes" to more business ideas. As a result, they experiment more: when an idea doesn't work, it's killed quickly. If an idea is good, you build upon it. Accelerators help drive this innovation, which drives business innovation.

    Depending on the use case, Spotfire® Accelerators include event-driven rules in Spotfire® Streaming, predictive analytics built in R and Python, and Spotfire® analytics and dashboards.

    Accelerator Overview

    Steve Jobs once said, when he was at NeXT Computer, this: "The simplest to maintain, the easiest code to debug, and the most efficient piece of code... is the code you never write." Jobs knew, back in the 1990s, that the key to making complex technology accessible and innovative was to provide simple, easy-to-understand programming interfaces to that infrastructure, and to simplify the job of building the world's best applications.



    The Accelerator project is our effort to simplify the job of building great Digital Business applications, harness the power of re-use, and engage the formidable community of Spotfire® developers. We hope all our customers join our community effort to innovate faster with Connected Intelligence, to spur innovation, and to make the world a better place.

    Business Activity Monitoring Accelerator

    1-process-detail-1.thumb.png.62a015bb902cc5c10f8340f7f7254afc.png The Business Activity Monitoring Accelerator allows users to track business process lifecycles for SLA violations, stalled processes, and missing process instances. Processes are configured using a no-coding configuration approach that are evaluated at runtime. The Accelerator works both with and without an overall BPM control system. It allows for real-time tracking of process performance to determine if SLAs are being met, giving businesses the opportunity to take proactive action to correct exception situations before they escalate.

    Connected Vehicles Accelerator

    02-trip-location.thumb.png.58117d0f5a7d730dac6a54296a99eeb8.png The Connected Vehicles Accelerator tracks vehicles and applies rules against their locations. This could be personal vehicles, taxis, delivery trucks, passenger or freight trains, public transport buses, aircraft... anything that moves and produces a stream of position data. For vehicles operating on a schedule, it tracks progress and proactively notifies when SLAs will be violated. Positions are compared against configured geofences to determine if vehicles are going someplace they shouldn't. A flexible user-defined rule module architecture allows for fully customized business rules, built in Spotfire® Streaming and then visualized using Spotfire®. 

    Continuous Supply Chain Accelerator

    09-deliveries-2.thumb.png.35ba7c52cb1132434e6478424bce4f5a.png The Continuous Supply Chain Accelerator shows how historical sales data can be used to forecast future sales and model the impact on inventory in both stores and warehouses. Tools built using Spotfire® can simulate forecasted demand based on promotion impact, and the subsequent effect on stock levels. There are tools for modelling Economic Order Quantity and Safety Stock on a store by store basis. And forecast data can be applied to allocate stores to distribution centers using a constrained optimization algorithm. Real-time components capture live sales data from stores and update in-memory inventory models, triggering automated ordering from distribute centers when stock levels drop below the Safety Stock. A Vehicle Resource Planning (VRP) solution is generated on a daily basis for all orders, which allocates store deliveries to routes and calculates driving directions for trucks to service stores from their allocated centers. Those trucks and the associated cargo can be tracked in real-time.

    Data Historian Accelerator

    14-osipi-datasource-3.thumb.png.d69a49408f6ec11f455d742933cbb8eb.png Capturing real-time telemetry from data historians like OPC UA and OSI PI can be done with the Data Historian Accelerator. Users can navigate object hierarchies with an easy to use interface to setup subscriptions on data points of interest. These data points are then mapped into logical data sets which can then be passed to user-implemented rules and models that gather insights and predict outcomes. The data is then streamed into Spotfire® for real-time visualization of system state and prompt users to take action when anomalous behavior is detected.

    Data Replay Accelerator


    Once connectivity and data is captured from historians like OSI PI or OPC UA, the Data Replay Accelerator for Spotfire® can be used to help with identifying anomalies and troubleshooting systems. This accelerator allows operational support engineers to setup triggers on data streams from a historian. When a trigger condition is detected, a snapshot of related data before and after the trigger is captured, and users can then replay the telemetry at their desired simulation rate to help with troubleshooting complex instrumented systems.
