Free eBook “Looking Ahead: Building Software for the Future” Reveals Key Components of Big Data Solutions

  • Machine-to-machine (M2M) connections and the Internet of Things (IoT) generate vast amounts of data
  • Businesses must manage this data properly with modern solutions
  • Solutions built with MongoDB, HTML5, and Angular best serve this business need


(MONTREAL, QC – July 31, 2015) – Etelesolv (now Cimpl), Canada’s leader in IT and telecom expense management, proudly launches its free eBook “Looking Ahead: Building Software for the Future”. This ebook clearly elucidates the technologies that underlie modern solutions built to handle the growing challenge of Big Data. The company is offering this eBook free of charge as part of its tradition of providing thought leadership and scholarship on the latest IT and industry practices to the broader business community.

“The Internet of Things (IoT) is already here, and it’s growing every second”, said Robert Al-Jaar, the company’s VP of Product Engineering. “Staggering amounts of data flow out of it, and businesses will need to use modern solutions to manage all this information. This is especially true of the costs associated with the “Things” that generate the data – the costs grow very quickly, particularly if left unchecked. That’s why understanding what goes into these data management solutions is critical to the decision maker plotting out the company strategy for IT. And so, we created “Looking Ahead” to explain the crucial elements of solutions tailor-made to minimize the costs of all the digital “things” that enterprises will have to deal with as the IoT explodes further. This is vital knowledge that helps optimize management of the Big Data juggernaut.”

Truly modern solutions designed to handle the Big Data challenge need to do two things well: Accurately track and manage the data; and make the data easy to understand, analyze, and use. The company has identified three particular technologies as essential components in building solutions that meet these challenges – MongoDB, HTML5, and Angular JS.

It is arguable that using each of these three technologies to build solutions that manage information or to create user interfaces represents current best practices. Deploying all three collectively to create a single suite of software should result in a solution that has great power, flexibility, speed, and user-friendliness in handling data and outputting results for end users. The reasons for these benefits is not always clear, especially to those without strong backgrounds in programming.

Hence, “Looking Ahead: Building Software for the Future” was written to educate decision-makers on the volume of data the IoT will bring to the world, and:

  • Why MongoDB solutions are ideal for handling Big Data;
  • Why HTML5 user interfaces give faster results to end users; and
  • Why Angular JS applications execute tasks for end users with great precision.

More than a simple eBook, “Looking Ahead: Building Software for the Future” is a roadmap and a template for deciding how to select solutions to futureproof business against the oncoming flood of data generated by machine-to-machine (M2M) connections and the IoT. The free eBook is intended for executives and IT managers who are pondering the challenge of handling incomprehensible volumes of information in business, but is also accessible to broader audiences as well.
