With cybersecurity on the everyone's mind, 2017 will be see the emergence of
True Fog Computing and Programmable / Intelligent Edge Devices with the
strongest security measures to-date.
As 2017 kicks into full gear and a particularly interesting 2016 fades into
the rearview mirror, we took a look around the IIoT landscape to see what
this year might potentially have in store. We will be unveiling five
IIoT-related predictions throughout this week and into next, so stay tuned
and let us know what you think!
For a rundown of how our 2016 bold predictions fared, check out the recap we
posted last month.
It's become increasingly difficult to ignore the importance of cybersecurity.
From the role it played in the 2016 presidential election to the recent
revelation that in 2013 more than one billion Yahoo accounts were breached,
cybersecurity is no longer a problem uniqu... (more)
Predictions can be enlightening as we round out the end of the year, and
industry analysts covering the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
have begun forecasting what to expect in 2017. In the ever changing digital
business landscape, companies need to keep a pulse on the technology and
regulatory environments to have direction on where to focus their
efforts. Over the past few years, IIoT has taken on the shared title of
industry 4.0, as new ways of connecting businesses and
consumers impact systems infrastructures and technology integrations
across many, if not all. busine... (more)
Fog Computing is being touted as the data communication solution our
Internet of Things (IoT) devices are asking for by bringing the power of
cloud computing closer to the end user. The fact is, the number of connected
devices is going to continue to grow exponentionally. In fact, Gartner
predicts that by 2020 IoT will include 26 billion connected things. Consider
the impact that amount of data collected and processed will have.The
Naturally, with billions of devices all connected to the cloud for
manufacturing, oil and gas, utilities, municipalities and enterprise, to... (more)
Oil companies use high-tech radios for production site automation in cool
new ways. Competition in oil production can get pretty ugly, especially when
the price of oil is low, as it has been for the past several years. To stay
competitive against big players, smaller regional oil and gas companies are
turning to well-pad automation practices to keep their costs low and their
production reliable and steady.
What is well-pad automation, you ask? Well, to put it simply, it’s the
deployment of technology that monitors, measures and manages the production
and storage of oil and gas a... (more)
Industrial IoT continues to cause disruption; not just in manufacturing, but
across many other industries as well. In the last few months we've been
keeping a pulse on the state of digital transformation across the
business landscape and have been discovering exciting new implementations
of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This week we're highlighting the
disruption Industrial IoT is instigating as product development and
lifecycle management continues to evolve.
Overcoming Three Key Barriers to Industrial IoT
Industrial IoT has the potential to capture data in real-time, l... (more)
