Space-Time Insight announces significant integration with global leaders in smart grid technology.

Space-Time Asset Composite enables situational intelligence & action from a geospatial screen

Space Time Insight™, the leader in visual, geospatial analytics applications software, today announced that its Space-Time Awareness Server (STAS) v. 3.1, has been validated for IBM’s Solution Architecture for Energy and Utilities (SAFE) industry framework, making it easier for energy and utility customers to adopt smart grid technology.

Space-Time Insight also today announced it has received validation for Ready for IBM Tivoli Software and will be included in IBM’s Open Process Automation Library (OPAL) catalog, based on successful integration with IBM’s Maximo Asset Management, WebSphere Portal, WebSphere Application Server, ILOG Elixir and DB2 Enterprise 9 software.

The Space-Time Awareness Server and Space-Time Composite Applications from Space-Time Insight are designed to bring the Smart Grid to its fullest realization and to advance the application of geospatial analytics and situational intelligence from energy & utilities, to oil & gas, to transportation and telecommunications.

Space-Time Insight captures and correlates multi-source data and displays the real-time status of assets, work-orders, people and events on interactive satellite images to provide full-context situational intelligence for more informed decision-making and fast action-taking from the same screen. Space-Time Insight’s geospatial, visual analytics specifically offer advances in context-aware, preventive and condition-based maintenance and field service.

Combined with IBM Maximo software, Space-Time Insight technology provides customers with:

  • Geospatial, visual identification of work orders and priorities with on-screen geo-links, for more detailed information, video feeds and on-screen, pop-up scripts
  • Intuitive, context-aware identification of assets likely to suffer a condition-based breakdown
  • Visual and audio alerts and notification of work not presently associated with work orders
  • Integrated views from historian systems that provide real-time SCADA data on malfunctions and assets operating outside of established thresholds
  • Condition based maintenance (CBM) sequences generated automatically from correlations of asset performance, attributes and history derived from Maximo
  • Automatic creation of grouped work orders in Maximo by rubber-banding troubled assets in the STAS geospatial interface for dynamic scheduling and dispatch

‘We are delighted to announce the Ready for IBM Tivoli and SAFE validations,’ said Mark L. Feldman, PhD, CEO at Space-Time Insight. “This is a winning combination that helps users from the executive suite to the control room protect revenue streams and reduce cost, while leveraging all their existing investments in information and operational technology. These purpose-built visual, geospatial analytics applications are setting the standard for utilities and critical infrastructure organizations.”

Space-Time Insight also recently announced it has been included as a 'Cool Vendor' in Gartner’s 'Cool Vendors in Energy & Utilities, 2010' report co-authored by Gartner Vice President and Fellow Kristian Steenstrup and published March 31, 2010.
