Jupiter Systems today showcased Canvas 2.0 suite, its new visual business intelligence software for enterprises.
The company said Canvas enables customers to access all of the visual information in the corporate network — camera feeds and real time data — and share it with remote colleagues on devices.
The new collaboration tool allows users to manage and monitor operations including supply chain management, to production, sales, and distribution.
The traditional solution requires managers and operators to be in the same room at the same time looking at the same screen in order to review and analyze information.
“With Canvas, far-flung users can share video and data streams from anywhere in the network and collaborate with colleagues on mobile devices, PCs, and in conference rooms no matter where they are. A rich set of collaboration tools allows them to annotate directly on live video, draw on a shared whiteboard, chat and interact in powerful new ways,” said Brady O. Bruce, vice president of Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Jupiter.
Canvas is already getting attention among enterprises. Some of the enterprise clients include a Fortune 500 healthcare products company with more than a dozen manufacturing operations around the world, a bank that must monitor an extensive network of ATM machines and other facilities, and a large electrical utility managing a smart grid spanning some of the US’ most populous areas.
Jupiter Systems said Canvas is well suited to the needs of the enterprise and government agencies across industries, including education and training, security, defense, healthcare, retail, oil and gas, public safety, public and private utilities, traffic and transportation, and finance.
The company said investing in the Canvas solutions does not require a complete overhaul of an organization’s existing visualization system. Canvas can be an add-on to existing UCC products and infrastructure.
Canvas is directly connected to sources of critical business information and can add a layer of rich context and interaction to products from more traditional collaboration vendors, such as Cisco, Microsoft, Polycom or Avaya.
