Carl Data Solutions in Advanced Bidding Process for Smart City Projects in India

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/17 -- Carl Data Solutions Inc. (CSE: CRL)(CSE: CRL.CN)(CNSX: CRL)(FRANKFURT: 7C5)(OTC PINK: CDTAF) ("Carl" or the "Company"), a developer of Big-Data-as-a-Service ("BDaaS")-based solutions for data integration, business intelligence, and Industrial Internet-of-Things ("IIoT") applications, is pleased to announce that it is currently in the bidding process on two different infrastructure projects in Bhopal, one of the first Indian Smart "Lighthouse" cities. The cooperation of Export Development Canada and its Indian trade commissioners, combined with the recent acquisition of AB Embedded Systems Ltd. ("AB Embedded") which also has a wholly-owned subsidiary in India, puts Carl Data in a strong position to receive some of the $20 Billion CAD approved for Smart City development.

Bhopal is known as one of the greenest cities in India, due to its many artificial and natural lakes. It is one of the first of 100 cities across India chosen for the national Smart City Mission. Unfortunately, the sewage network coverage is merely 12 per cent in some areas, and most of the untreated sewage is discharged into rivers, ponds or lakes, which are also the main source of municipal water. Already plans are in place to upgrade wastewater monitoring, and the FlowWorks software powered by Carl's application is being considered because of its ease of use and competitive pricing.

Dealing with municipal solid waste has also become an acute concern, especially since much of it is simply dumped on the outskirts of urban areas. Carl Data has developed a powerful solution for efficient solid waste removal systems that incorporate an adaption of FlowWorks powered by Carl software, combined with AB Embedded's hardware and telemetry. Greg Johnston, CEO of Carl Data Solutions, commented, "We are very excited about these Smart City opportunities in Bhopal. Getting involved at the beginning of such a huge national mission to upgrade infrastructure, will give us endless opportunities to adapt and apply our BDaaS for the IIoT."

Kapil Mohorta, International Trade Commissioner for Canada, explained why Carl Data is in a strong position to receive a Smart City Mission contract, "AB Embedded Systems was very active in the Indian market and was very aggressive as well as supported timely action on the inquiries received."

It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
