DataGlen Technologies: Equipping the Energy Landscape with Next-Generation IoT Applications

CIO Vendor IoT has led to a new wave of pervasive and endless connectivity that has left no industry untouched. It has become one of the core components of businesses across the globe as the connectivity and real-time analytics inherent in IoT, are regarded with the ability to mitigate many hassles prevalent today. Corroborating this is IDC’s research forecast which predicts the global IoT market to reach USD 457 billion by 2020, attaining a CAGR of 28.5 percent. However, despite the potential of IoT to bring a number of benefits such as an enhanced situational awareness, sensor-driven decision analytics, process optimization, high quality data and efficient resource utilization, moving into a more connected world brings its own set of complexities as IoT implementations are vulnerable to data hacks, security and privacy concerns and problems of interoperability. Stepping forward to address these challenges, Bengaluru headquartered DataGlen Technologies Pvt. Ltd burst onto the country’s start-up scene to equip the industry with a suite of cutting-edge IoT applications.

Established in 2015, the company was founded with a vision to bring new-age IoT solutions that can enable enterprises to monitor, manage and optimize their assets. With IoT now entering the mainstream technology landscape and contributing to the proliferation of embedded and interconnected computing devices, DataGlen has created a number of specialized IoT offerings, with a special emphasis on the Solar Energy landscape, to bring a suite of open-ended, Vendor/Device agnostic IOT applications with AI-based predictive analytics capabilities, including IoT data collection platforms,a framework for advanced analytics and visualization, real-time alerts, ticketing systems and other smart phone applications. “DataGlen Technologies is addressing the current challenges in the IoT landscape with solutions that focus on providing a means for data acquisition, pooling, processing, analysis and developing real-time insights,” affirms Tanuja Ganu, Chief Technology Officer, DataGlen Technologies.


Focusing extensively on the energy sector, DataGlen Technologies leverages the extensive expertise of its founders in Smart Energy Research to offer IoT solutions through its core platform and framework- DERitos. As a next-generation horizontal technology platform architected for the Energy and Utilities segments, this solution works to support multiple energy applications such as Solar Asset Management, Generation Management, and Storage Optimization. With most of the current solutions in the market being closed systems and tied to vendors as a single point application, DataGlen’s platform has been built on an open API framework architecture and can work with any equipment, build applications and integrate into existing infrastructures. Moreover, the solution’s robust architecture and machine learning algorithms endow it with the ability to achieve rapid scalability as well as efficiently collect and process terabytes of data to produce faster and more accurate results. As a testament to its capabilities, DataGlen’s SunDash, a Solar Asset Management application built over DERitos is being used to manage solar plants at 303 locations across India with a cumulative capacity of more than 300MW currently.
