Market Intelligence as a Platform

Liftr Insights’ Market Intelligence as a Platform is the software code and methodology that drives our data collection and analysis.

We gather intelligence about deployed internet-attached infrastructure via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) using DevOps software development and operations methodology. We measure infrastructure availability (what exists), capability (what’s in it) and pricing (what it costs). We provide customers with alternative data about the internet-attached infrastructure ecosystem.

Market Intelligence as a Platform is different from traditional data collection and analysis. Traditional data collection relies on expensive and time-consuming surveys. Surveys depend on vendors to respond and to respond honestly. Traditional survey analysis also requires statistical modeling to extrapolate small survey sample sizes to an overall market. Survey results can be subjective and imprecise, as well as slow.

With Market Intelligence as a Platform, data collection is faster and more complete, and analysis is more thorough and reliable. Liftr Insights uses Market Intelligence as a Platform to collect comprehensive data from service description APIs and quickly provide objective quantitative analysis. Customers receive the alternative data that they need to understand the internet-attached infrastructure ecosystem.

 

Liftr Cloud Components Tracker

 

For example, the Liftr Cloud Components Tracker uses Market Intelligence as a Platform to measure availability, capability and pricing for public cloud services. Public cloud services are delivered from internet-attached data centers. Every month, our software systems scan cloud service provider (CSP) service description APIs to catalog their offerings, determine what hardware is in them and identify their pricing. Because we scan using DevOps, we can provide data and analysis monthly and can adapt to CSP’s changing service offerings in real time.

The public cloud is just one of the markets Liftr Insights can measure through our software code and methodology. We can provide alternative data about many emerging technologies. Our Market Intelligence as a Platform is modular and extensible to other internet-attached infrastructure, including 5G, edge computing and IoT.

Investors should consider using Liftr Insights’ Market Intelligence Platform, because:

  • Internet-attached infrastructure is opaque to investors. Service providers aren’t transparent, leaving investors uncertain about their investment decisions.
  • Alternative data sources aren’t available on earnings calls. Using APIs, Liftr Insights creates alternative data describing availability, capability and pricing of Internet-attached infrastructure.
  • Liftr Insights is built on DevOps software automation, providing investors with objective quantitative alternative data on a monthly basis.
Sample Reports - The Liftr Cloud Components Tracker Process Levels of Magnitude The Liftr Cloud Components Tracker identifies and catalogs the prices, configurations, and components of all the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and bare metal compute instances being deployed by tracked cloud service providers (CSPs), region by region around the entire world.

Liftr Cloud Components Tracker

Monthly reports identify and catalog the prices, configurations and components of all the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and bare metal compute instances being deployed by tracked cloud service providers, region by region around the entire world. The Liftr Cloud Components Tracker delivers actionable industry intelligence for the entire cloud ecosystem. Cloud Service Providers can assess themselves against the market leaders. Cloud supply chain vendors can track the number and location of instances containing their product, giving IT customers and investors an objective, reliable source of instance share. Technology investors can see a real-time holistic view of both CSPs and cloud supply chain vendor success with new service deployments. Large IT-as-a-Service organizations can plan regional and worldwide deployments based on the availability of similar capabilities regionally and between cloud service providers.
