Graphmasters Finds Route to Internet of Things Success with Splunk Enterprise

Real-Time Insights Ensure Drivers Get the Right Directions and a Performing App

SAN FRANCISCO – January 6, 2016 – Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, announced today that Graphmasters, the company behind the popular Nunav navigation app, is using Splunk® Enterprise to drive value from the Internet of Things. Graphmasters relies on Splunk Enterprise to correlate data from traffic feeds to help German drivers find the fastest and most accurate route through traffic. Graphmasters also prevents downtime with Splunk Enterprise and measures key performance indicators such as the accuracy of predicted arrival times. To learn more, read the Graphmasters case study on the Splunk website.

“The success of the Nunav app relies on our ability to analyze large volumes of machine data from diverse sources, including the Internet of Things, in real time,” said Iulian Nitescu, chief technical officer and founder, Graphmasters. “By analyzing data from road traffic feeds, we have created traffic profiles in Splunk Enterprise for a real-time view of road congestion. This allows us to recommend the fastest route to our customers every time. By correlating traffic data with the app’s route recommendations, we can also rapidly detect and rectify any discrepancy between the route and current traffic conditions.”

There are peak times for road travel, which means Graphmasters needs to scale to meet higher demand for the app during those times. For example, more people are likely on the road before bank holidays or on Friday afternoons. The company has set up alerts so the technical team knows immediately if traffic reaches a certain threshold and they can scale the server and ensure downtime is avoided. Graphmasters also uses Splunk dashboards to measure a number of key performance indicators (KPIs), including query times, accuracy of the predicted arrival times and how long it takes the system to adapt to a traffic event that could slow things down. By monitoring these areas, Graphmasters guarantees that it is performing well in all KPIs.

“Graphmasters’ Nunav app is a great example of the exciting products and services our customers can build by harnessing real-time insights from their machine data,” said Steve Sommer, chief marketing officer, Splunk. “We are pleased that Splunk Enterprise enables Graphmasters to help assure accuracy and uptime – ultimately enabling Nunav users to avoid traffic and get to their destinations quicker.”
