BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - June 26, 2014) - Energy Points, the source energy intelligence company, today announced enhancements to its Source Energy Analytics platform. The new 3.0 portal provides a framework that will extend the company's proprietary source-to-site energy analytics to the energy analysis of products and supply chains, as well as corporate benchmarking.
"The power of the new Energy Points Source Energy Analytics 3.0 is in its broad applicability," says Bill Rebozo, Vice-President of Product at Energy Points. "Everything can be measured as energy. With 3.0 we (1) broaden the granular and temporal accuracy of our source-to-site analysis for electricity, water, fuels, and materials and (2) offer a platform to extend that analysis to any relevant portion of an organization. Buildings, products, supply chains and corporate goals can be managed holistically in a single platform with a common relevant metric based on source energy." Mr. Rebozo further discusses maximizing the energy productivity of supply chains in this blog post.
The new source-to-site energy analysis of products and suppliers enables executives to look at the energy intensity of all their operations and products as a whole and how each product line and supplier, as well as resource and facility, contributes to it. "Our goal is to pinpoint the most energy intensive and carbon intensive 'hot spots,' anywhere in an organization -- whether it's water consumption in an office building in drought-ridden California or parts production in a supplier's manufacturing plant in China," says Ory Zik, Energy Points CEO. "Meanwhile, the competitor benchmarking gives our customers the market context of their energy and environmental performance."
With the apples-to-apples comparison of every aspect of a supply chain executives can determine the weakest performing areas of their operations and address them first. The internal and competitor benchmarking of their business's energy productivity further supports strategic decision-making. These enhancements to Energy Points' already robust physics-based, geospatial energy analysis provide a level of actionable precision as yet unseen in supply chain management.
About Energy Points
Energy Points is the source energy intelligence company. It provides the only energy and resource management solution that quantifies and analyzes source energy -- measuring electricity, water, fuels, and materials from the source through the site of consumption, while accounting for resource scarcity and environmental impact. Organizations use the source energy analysis to discern energy and carbon intensive "hot spots" in their products and supply chains.
The company's physics-based, geospatial analytics platform simultaneously achieves the highest level of granularity in energy and environmental analysis and makes it intuitive. Organizations can now diagnose, flag, and address the most energy intensive areas of their operations first to strategically maximize energy productivity across their supply chain.
Energy Points is a privately held company headquartered in Boston, MA. Please visit energypoints.com.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
