SkySpark works with data of all types — whether via a live link to an automation system or smart meter, connection to a SQL database, import of historical data from Excel files, or a web service feed from an utility.
At the heart of SkySpark is the high-performance Folio database – specially designed for IoT data. Folio combines the speed of an industrial historian with the modeling capabilities of document and graph databases to store and organize heterogeneous data, creating unified models of your buildings, equipment, devices, and sensors.
Folio's process historian uses advanced compression to efficiently store billions of time-series records in a fraction of the disk space compared to other technologies. Store live sensor data with microsecond access times.
SkySpark’s advanced data compression and world-class performance can drastically reduce your hardware server requirements.
SkySpark uses the industry-standard Project Haystack for semantic tagging of data. With proper tagging, analytics applications can quickly consume data from equipment systems and interpret patterns in operational data to identify faults, deviations, and trends that can be addressed to improve efficiency and ensure proper operation of equipment systems.

Access to the data is just the first step. The new challenge is to effectively manage and derive value from the exploding amount of data available from smart and connected devices.
Our solution is Axon — an analytic engine that automatically processes rules and algorithms on your data to find Sparks — things that matter.
SkySpark then automatically generates visualizations, notifications, and reports that show the issue, time of occurrence, frequency, duration, and even cost.
SkySpark includes over 500 built-in analytic functions to help you Find What Matters. Draw from the built-in library or create new rules that target the specific needs of your facilities, equipment, processes and project scope.

SkySpark can be applied to virtually all types of data across a variety of industries.
SkySpark includes a rich set of applications to visualize your data and analytic results. All of these intuitive presentations are displayed in standard web browsers using HTML5 technology – no plug-ins required. SkySpark can also output analytic results to 3rd Party applications via our open published APIs.
While the SkySpark Axon engine continuously applies analytics to your data, the real value comes when those results are presented to you via SkySpark Apps – rich visual presentations that show how your systems are really performing.
