As cloud computing and loosely-coupled data sources become core parts of IT infrastructure, developers, IT staff and systems administrators need to interact with systems in an ad-hoc, programmatic manner that was not anticipated by the creators of legacy systems management tools. Systems data today suffers from a lack of modernization—the methods in which services are managed haven’t kept pace with the technical innovation and social communication mechanisms popularized by Salesforce.com, Facebook, Twitter and others.
Nodeable applies social mechanics to systems data, allowing users to interact with cloud infrastructure and disparate data sources just as they do with users on social networks. Powered by big data analytics, the Nodeable platform unlocks intelligence from data sources to help IT staff make better decisions faster. Nodeable’s open API is designed to complement and work with other systems management tools and a wide range of different data sources.
$21.5 billion $72.9 billion
"Nodeable is leveraging three major technology trends to help users manage the enormous cloud services market – big data analytics, systems management and social communications," said Stephen O’Grady of Redmonk, a technology consultancy firm. "It’s almost like Twitter for machines. They are layering a social fabric over an analytics platform that may help many companies with the challenges of data management complexity as they ramp up their investments in private and public cloud services."
