To make data science, analytics and IoT easily available, we have created the Flowtale Platform Accelerator.

The Flowtale Platform Accelerator enables your data to become highly integrated by combining internal as well as external data sources, in a framework that is tailored to your specific demands, so you have a swift and easy way to get insights out of your data.

Flowtale Platform Accelerator is...

A stepping stone
to highly integrated, actionable data
on a platform that your business owns
with flexibility and low technology risk.
A methodology
to land data from diverse sources,
combine data to create insights and value
and expose those insights to the business.
A framework
to operationalize data collection with DataOps,
customize solutions for opportunities quickly
and manage data change over time.
A promise
of cheaper and faster lead times for analytics,
enabling use-cases with a future-proof foundation,
building on the right technologies from the start.

Data Pipeline Framework

Most data solutions are created by data scientists or developers who are not experts in data engineering and topics such as streaming data, data management and data drift. A similar problematic situation applies to custom IoT clouds, that are often created by hardware manufacturers or by consultants without a single data scientist to verify the actual usability.

At Flowtale, we have years of experience rolling out data and analytics solutions across different industries, and we know the advantage of having embedded DataOps at the outset. That's why the Flowtale Platform Accelerator is built as a data pipeline framework that can support any IoT and Big Data architecture, and adjust to changes easily.

Modular and Flexible Solution

We strongly adhere to the principles of loose coupling and high cohesion in our solutions. Too often we have seen poorly structured solutions end up in a "take it or leave it" dilemma for the owner, forcing IT strategy and architecture decisions to be impacted by past implementation.

To avoid the common traps, the Flowtale Platform Accelerator has been built as a truly modular solution where components can be singled out and deployed to environments in accordance with scalable IT architecture - and then configured to share data where it makes sense.

Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Support

Using a single cloud provider for data, analytics and IoT comes with large hidden cost in time spent on establishing data integrations. The major providers don't support the same use-cases, or even protocols and operating systems, and there are often huge savings to be gained from thinking "outside-the-box" and having a flexible framework for this.

To achieve full data integration and IoT device support, the Flowtale Platform Accelerator is built to support all cloud providers, including hybrid scenarios, and can setup new data integrations in a matter of days, not weeks.

Platform Accelerator in a Box

Infrastructure as code and automated deployment is a thing all cloud solutions should aspire to make possible.

We've taken it a step further and have containerized the deployment process, resulting in an accelerator solution in a box, that's packaged (currently 3.6gb), shipped to technical staff and deployed to your environment in a matter of 20 minutes. That's an entire data platform from scratch.

Based on Open-Source and Proven Tech

At Flowtale we have a strong focus on utilizing the best of Open-Source, and we're focused on deploying solutions based on components proven to be mature and regularly updated.

That's why the Flowtale Platform Accelerator can guarantee your organization a start to a long-lived data analytics and IoT platform, where the skills to operate and maintain it are readily available on the general IT hiring market.
