Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading provider of business-to-business wireless enterprise applications and services, today announced the availability of a powerful new server-based business intelligence platform designed specifically for the transportation and logistics marketplace. The DataVisor platform initially is designed for use with Qualcomm's SensorTRACS/400 performance monitoring application and, over time, will integrate data from a wide variety of Qualcomm applications and external data sources. This initial version of the DataVisor platform enhances the SensorTRACS application by providing data in a format that is easier to use for trend tracking, identifying top performers and for making better business decisions.
“Qualcomm customers asked for a more robust mechanism for interpreting business data, and we are pleased to respond and offer our customers a powerful platform that will help them operate more effectively in a highly competitive industry and better translate the data they receive each day into operational excellence,” said Norm Ellis, vice president and general manager of transportation and logistics for Qualcomm Wireless Business Solutions. “The DataVisor platform gives businesses the added edge they need for success.”
Transportation and logistics businesses receive large amounts of data that can be difficult to interpret, manage and use effectively. The DataVisor platform enables companies of all sizes to have a flexible, scalable, centralized data warehouse where they can quickly and easily access and manage the information that they need. Individuals throughout the company can customize the way that they view data and use standard reports included in the platform or easily create and save personalized reports to help make important business decisions.
The DataVisor platform improves business intelligence by providing a simpler and more effective way to access, manage and analyze data using a web browser. Users can produce more sophisticated and detailed analysis of SensorTRACS application data to help improve everything from fuel and driver management through pinpointing excess idling to identifying important business trends.
Qualcomm's SensorTRACS performance monitoring application delivers data from a vehicle's sensor inputs or onboard data bus including individual driver performance reports, speed/RPM ratios and extended idle time identification.
