The Internet of Things
(IoT) does not need to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be about billions or trillions of devices. The Internet of Things
is here today, and it’s a practical and applicable technology trend that can generate return on investment (ROI) and drive efficiencies and insights for organizations that know how to use it.
The advancements in connectivity, processing power, form factors, operating systems, and applications, among other technology breakthroughs, are key elements to unlocking value from IoT.
With the Microsoft Azure Internet of Things
Suite, companies can monitor assets to improve efficiencies, drive operational performance to enable innovation, and use advance data analytics to transform the business with new business models and revenue streams. Small changes can have a big impact to companies' bottom line. When a company take advantage of the Microsoft Cloud Platform, they can use the Azure IoT Suit to help them move faster, do more, save money, and capture the benefits of the Internet of Things
for their business.
In this connected world, the proliferation of Intelligent Devices has created a market for entirely new solutions based on Internet of Things (IoT) technology. With the ever-increasing amount of data that is inherent in an IoT world, the key to gaining real business value is effective communication among all elements of the architecture. Oracle’s IoT platform delivers an integrated, secure, comprehensive platform for the entire IoT architecture across all vertical markets. Its IoT solution allows companies to gain new data-driven insights and drive actions from IoT data, enabling their businesses to deliver innovative new services faster than their competitors, with less risk.
The Industrial Internet allows you to combine brilliant machines with best-in-class analytics to deliver valuable new insights that were never before possible. The results of these powerful analytic insights can be revolutionary for your business by transforming your technological infrastructure, helping reduce unplanned downtime and maximize profitability and efficiency. GE believes the Industrial Internet unlocks new possibilities and drives transformation by connecting brilliant machines, advanced analytics and people at work. By getting equipment connected and having insights and evidence of when equipment maintenance is needed, you can optimize the maintenance schedule and cycle. GE’s business is making the Industrial Internet real. They help customers connect their machines, data, insights and people to improve performance, uptime and productivity. Their scalable, open standard control solutions bring the benefits of connected machines to customers' operations.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
There is the potential for 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Google Cloud Platform gives you the tools to scale connections, gather and make sense of data, and provide the reliable customer experiences that hardware devices require. With the potential for so many devices, companies need a network infrastructure that can sustain potentially millions of concurrent connections across a global user base. Google's Backbone Network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cables, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. Many small devices are still capable of producing very large volumes of data. It is only through the insight of sufficiently powerful data analysis tools that these trickles of device data are turned into floods of valuable information. Google Cloud Platform is building a state-of-the-art suite of big data tools.
