Data Infrastructure Management and Smart Building Monitoring

OpenData from Modius delivers operational intelligence from real-time data for superior management of data centers and facilities. OpenData is a scalable IoT software platform designed to collect the unstructured “big data” from all the infrastructure, sensors, applications, and IT equipment found in data centers and facilities. OpenData was built to assist with high volume real-time data collection across globally dispersed sites. OpenData is easily deployed on Dell Gateways and collects massive amounts of telemetric data. From there, it normalizes at the edge and uses advanced machine learning to send actionable insights into your entire edge data center ecosystem.

Solution Rating


Technical Expertise
As a technical skills prerequisite, this rating is based on the level of integration required for implementation as well as the level of customization and configuration specific to the IoT and Analytics technology deployment.

Industry Acumen
For industry acumen, our solution consultants identify solutions that are more suited for particular segments and/or niche markets versus solutions that are more versatile and can be applied across multiple industries. This rating helps solution providers identify their options for expanding their market share, by honing their industry expertise or creating parallel sales across multiple industries.

Market Size
Market size indicates the relevant number of end-client targets for the particular solution. A niche market has a low rating but this only reflects the number of targets, not the potential revenue stream of market. A high rating indicates a larger market pool.

Cloud Consumption
Some solutions and use cases trigger more cloud consumption than other solutions. The level of data loads, storage needs, and network configurations affect cloud consumption.

Disruption Level
This rating is to provide a sense of expectation for solution deployment. Some solutions may require training and process adoption where other solutions effective “out of the box” on day one.
