ONELAN has announced its new Data Collection Engine (DCE), intended to complement the company’s expanding portfolio of enterprise-class products.
ONELAN’s Data Collection Engine is a framework of software functionality that provides connections between various customer data sources to ONELAN’s Net-Top-Boxes (NTBs), the company says.
The DCE enables organizations of all sizes to unlock the value of previously inaccessible data, such as information held in spreadsheets, databases and business systems, which can now be easily repurposed for use on digital signage, Web pages and other rich graphical displays.
Two of the new connectors are the Microsoft Excel Business Connector and the Microsoft Exchange Business Connector.
The new Microsoft Excel Business Connector enables Excel data to be displayed directly on digital signage, enabling visibility of educational, sales and financial, and other Excel-stored information.
The new Microsoft Exchange Business Connector enables users to deliver availability, messaging and organizational information directly to digital signage, unlocking and displaying room and resource bookings to allow more efficient use of resources, without interruption to users and administrators.
Additional connectors are also available for XML, Text, and Google Calendar and SQL databases, ONELAN says.
