Halcyon Solutions and Living PlanIT Collaborate to Support U.S. Department of Transportation

Two leading tech companies join forces to bring cutting-edge technology to the U.S. transport sector

COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Living PlanIT and Halcyon Solutions announce a strategic collaboration today to support the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Smart City initiatives across the country. These two companies will combine their expertise in developing technology solutions for IoT and smart city projects, and their collective international presence, in order to assist cities in implementing solutions for transportation, healthcare and public safety.

Cities around the world are increasingly realizing the potential benefits of technology to uplift economically disadvantaged citizens through environmentally sustainable transportation options, more accessible healthcare and jobs, supporting metropolitan areas in developing and maintaining a resilient urban environment.

The complexity of the interrelated problems that cities face makes it a daunting challenge to deliver advanced ("Smart") solutions that create meaningful results. However, by leveraging domain expertise and technology, it is possible to understand more deeply what is happening in the world around us, to analyze the situation and make informed decisions about how we can respond by designing and deploying targeted, effective solutions. The combination of Living PlanIT's smart infrastructure platform (PlanIT Urban Operating System™), plus a suite of Halcyon's resources running on top, guided by collective project experience of the companies, represents a ground-breaking opportunity to deliver real change.

Sanjay Dudaney, President of Halcyon Solutions, said:
"Halcyon has always been in the forefront of technology and has pushed the envelope to help its clients gain business value from these new technological advancements. Recently, we implemented an IoT-enabled solution for a major ambulance manufacturer, which equipped their ambulances with the ability to capture real-time data from their vehicles, improving response time during emergencies. Our BI and Analytics Practice has assisted healthcare and retail clients in deriving insights from data and making better business decisions in a real-time fashion. This collaboration with Living PlanIT is a further demonstration of Halcyon's commitment to leveraging best-in-class technology to meet social and business objectives."

Dan Byles, VP Head of Corporate Development for Living PlanIT, said:
"We are delighted to be working with Halcyon to help cities across the United States bring innovative technology to bear on real-world problems. Cities are historically made up of siloed systems operating independently, which can make it difficult to create efficient and responsive services. Gathering, managing and curating the massive amounts of data generated in a city environment is not trivial. Extracting meaning from the data, so that safe and timely decisions and interventions can be made, is even harder. Living PlanIT is the market leader in applying innovative technology to the urban environment to integrate services and to unlock the power of real-time data and analytics. We have worked with Governments and cities around the world, including leading the UK Government's first ever National Internet of Things (IoT) Demonstrator Project at London City Airport. We strongly believe that our technology, coupled with Halcyon's deep domain knowledge and experience, will help cities across the US to enhance city services and improve the quality of life for citizens."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
