SpatialBuzz Shortlisted for Mobile Industry Award

GUILDFORD, England, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

SpatialBuzz, an innovative cloud-based customer experience analytics and service monitoring platform for network operators, has announced that it has been shortlisted in the Best Software Solution category in the Mobile Industry Awards 2014, which are organised by Mobile Today magazine.

"The mobile software solutions market is seeing exponential growth in the UK," said Matthew Campelli of Mobile Today. "As demand continues to grow across key sectors, including health, education, logistics and security, it is clear that mobile software solutions are becoming central to the successful growth and development of businesses across the UK, and we have added this new category to the Mobile Industry Awards to reflect this. The awards have attracted a large number of strong entries, and the shortlists represent the very best of these."

The entries are judged by a team of leading mobile industry figures, based on a range of criteria that include: features of software solution; testimonials from customers and partners in the UK mobile sector; focus of business; commercial performance; and a case study. The Awards will be presented at a prestigious dinner to be held on Thursday 5 June at The Brewery in Chiswell Street, London.

SpatialBuzz's customer testimonial and case study were both provided by Telefónica UK, one of its UK mobile operator customers. Telefónica UK gives its mobile subscribers real-time access to live network status information and detailed coverage maps; both powered by SpatialBuzz's online system. This improves customer experience and fosters loyalty to the network operator, and in many cases can avoid the need for them to phone the network call centre. A video of the case study can be seen online at

SpatialBuzz harnesses the power of customer experience analytics to enable operators to better understand service issues by analyzing in real time where customers and agents are performing network status checks. The SpatialBuzz systems perform sophisticated spatio-temporal analytics on the usage of each of the information touch-points to identify both live network service issues as perceived by customers and areas with longer-term issues. These analytics enable the operator to obtain early warning of emerging issues, focus resources on improving network performance in the areas most important to customers and monitor service improvement following corrective actions.

The same information is provided seamlessly to the customer across multiple touch-points - online tools, mobile handset apps, and the systems used by customer service employees, who also have access to a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) containing the most up-to-date network performance information available.

"We are honoured to be shortlisted for a Mobile Industry Award, which is a testament to our capability in helping mobile operators deliver more transparent, consistent and proactive services to their customers," said Andrew Blake, CTO of SpatialBuzz. "The SpatialBuzz platform has already won the Award for CEM this year, and this nomination is a further endorsement of our success in transforming customer experience and promoting brand loyalty."

This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...
SYS-CON Events announced today the Containers & Microservices Bootcamp, being held November 3-4, 2015, in conjunction with 17th Cloud Expo, @ThingsExpo, and @DevOpsSummit at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This is your chance to get started with the latest technology in the industry. Combined with real-world scenarios and use cases, the Containers and Microservices Bootcamp, led by Janakiram MSV, a Microsoft Regional Director, will include presentations as well as hands-on...
As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

DevOps Summit, taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, and Javits Center in New York City, is co-located with 17th Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait...
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
