The Internet of Things is now a reality: lamp-posts, pedestrian crossings, and parking spaces can now communicate! Our products are there to listen – and make it possible to sift through the raw data to identify those objects that require particular attention.
From the field to the product
Our business experts identify the current and future needs of our customers. Our software publishing business consists of providing the best response to these needs as quickly as possible.
To achieve this, our development team uses a methodology called Scrum: it is a so-called agile methodology, which ensures that we respond as quickly as possible to the requests of our customers.
In this method, every three weeks our product manager and the development team prioritise what needs to be covered and decide what the team will achieve in the next round. This allows us to adapt very quickly to our customers’ environment.
Also, every three weeks the development team delivers a version of the product in which the latest features are embedded: this allows us to check that what has been achieved is in line with the initial requirement.

Our next challenges
Predictive : more from describing to predicting
Our applications already know how to centralise all the data which is uploaded automatically or manually, whether they are reports of interventions entered by technicians, measurements taken by sensors or equipment self-diagnostics. Better still, our applications allow to use this information to make the work of our customers more efficient: if a particular router indicates that it is out of order, which connections need to be modified to restore the subscribers’ connection? The power consumed by a particular electrical cabinet has just failed, would a lamp it supplies not have burnt out? Why not go further? How can one predict breakdowns from the uploaded data? How can we detect recurring patterns in the use of public facilities, in order to improve their availability?
