Stream analytics and IOT

After successful integration with one of the biggest water treatment plant’s atomization for water tank level and temperature monitoring, we have a new requirement: to come up with a solution to measure below parameters for water quality measurement and control, also requirement was to fulfill the quality measurement in real time with stream analytics for forecasting of plant machinery’s maintenance and preventive and corrective actions and also need to implement real time dashboard solution for monitoring. Below water quality and other parameters to measures PH ORP (oxidation-reduction potential) DO (dissolved oxygen) Chloride Conductivity of water […]

The 7 sins of Evil UXD

UX Design as we understand is a science to make technology easy, better and to improve relationship with brands, by understanding users’ psychology. Just like a trusted friend, UX Design undoubtedly is like a protagonist who is virtuous and is always user-centric. Like they say, every protagonist is incomplete without a antagonist, in this case its the the evil twin of UX- The evil UXD.  In this blog, let’s have a look at the antagonist of UX, where UX design is drawn towards the darker side to use the very virtuous UX heuristics for evil […]

GOING DIGITAL EN MASSE……. but why?

Digitization in government often boils down to efficiency – and I think that is a shame. In essence, it is actually something much more tangible than that: it can create a completely different relationship between the government and its citizens. Digitization allows information to be shared quickly and simply, and it makes it easy to involve people ‘en masse’ in the organization of their own environment. Recently, I was interested in reading the blog by the Dutch Digi Commissioner Bas Eenhoorn. In the article he spoke out against how our government is going digital: in his […]

Prototype to Production

From past month I was working on water tank level measurement using Ultrasonic sensor and Arduino micro controller for one of the biggest water plant. Below is my journey from prototype to production for water tank level measurement and alerts with Internet of Things. Problem: In industries where liquid (water or otherwise) is a part of the manufacturing process, it is often a stressful manual effort to monitor liquid levels or consistency of mineral / chemical components and/or control thresholds (especially in case of hazardous chemicals). Furthermore the entire monitoring process is open to risk […]

Oh, delicious wave of progress

We live in a magical time. Globalization is bringing people from all over the world closer together and makes solutions available to everybody, in part due to far-reaching digitalization.

The importance of speed

Digital technology has come a long way. The early web was great, but it is almost nothing compared to how today’s technology impacts how we work, travel, communicate, and play. From email to GPS, and all the mobile apps and games in between, there are plenty of ways technology just makes our lives easier and more pleasant.  What supports all of these advances is a very complex and rapidly changing technology ecosystem. What business does not like the idea of efficiency, or wants new ideas out the door and into production as fast as users […]

The end of the email era

Ever since the Internet was commercialized back in 1995, email has been a huge part of our lives. Today, corporate users send and receive an average of 125 emails a day. Handling all of this information is a big challenge for many users. Email – or ‘electronic mail’ – was designed as the digital alternative to physical letters. It was not intended to be a collaboration tool for either individuals or teams. Email can get in the way of getting things done, this is why we see a trend where new email apps are continually born. With […]

The value of Coworking: rent a place, wherever

While traveling in Estonia, sitting in the lobby of my hotel, I started a conversation with a man who was working with a laptop on his knees. It turned out he had been traveling from here to there for years, and simply continued to do his work. The only thing he needed as a freelancer was his laptop and an Internet connection. This lifestyle was the most ordinary thing in the world for him. He had customers all over the world, so why shouldn’t he be able to do his work from anywhere? It got […]
