SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Splunk, a real-time operational intelligence provider has announced joint collaboration with the developer of popular Nunav navigation app, Graphmasters to project Splunk services for driving the value from Internet of Things (IoT). Graphmasters employs Splunk as a platform for connecting the traffic feeds data to help German drivers finding fastest and accurate routes through traffic. Splunk also helps Graphmasters in preventing downtime and measuring key performance indicators, like accuracy of predicted arrival times.

“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 Lulian 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.”

At the peak hours of road travel, Graphmasters faces higher demands of the application. The company has set alerts that if traffic reaches certain threshold, then technical team will know immediately and they can scale the server according to it to avoid downtime. Graphmasters utilizes Splunk dashboards to measure the key performance indicators (KPIs) to adapt a traffic event that will slow down things. Monitoring of these areas guarantees Graphmasters with high-performance across 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.”
