A Smart Solution for Olympia Exhibition Centre
Spook announces Jacarta interSeptor support for its OmniWatch monitoring solution.
Olympia Exhibitions recently invested in Jacarta interSeptor monitoring units, manufactured by one of the UK’s leading environmental monitoring hardware specialists. Following a successful installation, Olympia felt it required an easy to use, joined-up way of managing the units and attached sensors.
Spook was approached by Olympia and undertook the task of adding Jacarta interSeptor units to the ever-growing list of OmniWatch compatible equipment. The project was completed and thoroughly tested and Jacarta now joins over forty other manufacturers, whose products are already supported by OmniWatch.
This approach not only allows customers to monitor both new and legacy equipment side by side, it also provides reassurance that that they are investing in a forward-looking future-proof solution.
The IT team at Olympia can now rest assured that their critical IT rooms are monitored 24/7, allowing them to focus on supporting their exhibitors.

Spook Limited's cover photo
The average server room is unmanned for more than 70% of the time, that's why it's critical to monitor the IT operating environment 24/7. Whether it is at room level or at individual rack level the same is true.
It's a staggering fact but evidence shows from our own customer base that although we do have clients with large data centres and a 24/7 presence; the majority of OmniWatch users operate in normal business hours.
This means that their server rooms are unsupervised for 14 hours over night during the week and for a period of 62 hours from close of play on Friday through to Monday morning. Overall this means that the critical IT equipment is in a 'lights out' state for around 70% of the time. Clearly this increases even more during extended holiday periods such as Bank Holidays, Easter and the festive period.

Media and Leisure - Spook Industry Sector
The media and leisure world is varied and our customers range from TV licensing, brewers, book publishers to cinema. Likewise they have varied IT infrastructures ranging from legacy server rooms to new-build 'lights out' data centres. They typically have a multitude of different types of equipment monitoring key IT and Facilities operations often with industry specialist equipment, which is hard to replace or find at short notice. Their raison d'être is customers spending disposable income for pleasure and therefore they need to ensure their products and services are available on-demand at the point of purchase and take care to maintain transactions can be processed 24/7.
Manufacturing - Spook Industry Sector
The manufacturing industry is an important part of our economy. It's fair to say the industry is much smaller than it used to be but judging by our customers it seems the businesses that are still successful within it have invested heavily in IT and new technologies to ensure their competitive edge. Our customers are truly international with well-known high street brands and are often the largest players in their field. Their IT infrastructure is typically global ranging from offices for employees to distribution hubs across multiple time zones. This means their IT has to be resilient.
Offshore - Spook Industry Sector
The dynamics of IT for our offshore-based customers is unique. The fact they are offshore means they operate in a geographically demanding arena whereby physical business continuity centres and disaster recovery locations are scarce. Often their utility companies are in the singular, bringing an added concern of loss or limited supply. Additionally the fact that most offshore companies cannot recover their data from mainland service providers as their information is sensitive and has to remain in the tax region they operate in means they focus more on disaster prevention than most. The monitoring requirement for these businesses varies from small server closet to medium sized server rooms and data centres.
UK Local Authorities - Spook Industry Sector
We have a proud heritage when it comes to providing services to local authorities. Our very first clients back in 2003 were East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council and St Albans City and District Council. They remain valued customers to this day, some 14 years later and we have attracted many more authorities with long-lasting relationships over the years.
Insurance - Spook Industry Sector
We have a strong and loyal Insurance Industry customer base from Lloyd’s of London members to traditional high street insurance firms. Maybe it's because of the industry they work in, whereby being risk averse is a prerequisite; or maybe it's because they operate in a truly 24/7 marketplace whereby online quotes and price comparison websites are king but customer loyalty is low with people wanting the best possible deal at short notice. Either-way perhaps this is why we have more insurance-based customers than any other industry sector.
Healthcare - Spook Industry Sector
Our customers in this sector all have tight budgetary constraints, where every pound saved on something is a pound they can spend on caring for someone. They also have disparate monitoring requirements and need to keep an eye on multiple IT based equipment such as UPS systems, generators and building management systems.
Distribution & Logistics - Spook Industry Sector
Spook has a solid track record within the distribution and logistics industry. Their monitoring requirements vary from small server closets housing key IT equipment to multiple data centres driving the business across different countries and time zones. Because OmniWatch is fully scalable and provides multivendor monitoring under one seamless solution we provide a joined-up answer for organisations that have truly global networks.
