When it looks at applications, the network crawler keeps tabs on things like voice and video call quality. The data it collects is detailed down to the user, location, and device type. Nyansa also compiles metadata about application performance from multiple customers and analyzes it for broader insights, Hill said.
For example, Nyansa's machine-learning mechanisms have determined that the Pokemon Go app tends to perform worse than the average application in enterprises that have been testing Voyance+. They've also figured out why: Employees are using it in outdoor areas, where the companies' Wi-Fi networks are weaker.
Voyance+ can also tell how much time and data each application takes up on an individual user's device. If it's too much, administrators may throttle or disconnect the application.
The Voyance service starts at US$18,000 per year for a one-year enterprise subscription. Voyance+ starts at US$27,000 per year. The annual price goes down with longer engagements.
