The company provides the following three services in the forms of templates, and plans to add more features in the future. The three templates can be used as independent cloud services, and services will be rolled out in order starting from this September.
Details of the SMART/InSight Cloud services being announced are as shown below:
1. Real-Time M2M Analytics (tentative name)

- Enables collection and analysis of real-time streaming data.
- Users can easily create analysis schema by using DB Explorer templates.
- User can effectively utilize log and machine data much effectively than ever.
- Not only can it analyze streaming data, but also it is capable of performing comprehensive data analysis by merging streaming data with related data, master data, and other fundamental information.
2. DB Explorer (tentative name)
This template spans across and integrates data and databases on the cloud such as Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and presents visualization of cross sectional information.
- Virtually integrates a wide range of data and make cross-sectional analysis a reality.
- Capable of providing customized search and analysis results that are optimized for the user's industry.

- No need to download files from Amazon S3 - searching and checking contents can be realized without opening the files.
- Findings can be shared among user group by adding comment(s) or discussion to the documents or pages.
These three templates will be displayed and demonstrated at ‘AWS Summit Tokyo 2014’ held at Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa on July 17th and 18th, 2014. Notably, in a 'Real-Time M2M Analytics' demo, beacons set up in the exhibition hall will gather and send visitor’s location information from visitors’ smartphones to Amazon Kinesis in real time.
