By influencing IoT technologies, many companies has fueled a digital transformation, moving from a manufacturing company into a services business, and innovating on service models for everything from decades-old mail sorting and processing machinery, to cutting-edge parcel delivery robots. It is leveraging IoT data to better predict and fix problems, increase uptime for customers, and deliver value across its ecosystem.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changeing all sectors of the economy, with some of the greatest impact in industries such as power and energy, oil and gas, manufacturing, and transportation. IoT is primarily well suited to some of the unique challenges in industrial settings such as remotely distributed operational equipment, like oil wells or wind turbines, and the harsh or risky conditions found in oil refineries and on manufacturing floors.
When committing to IoT, some of the first challenge which must be deal with how to collect and analyze data from a unique and various set of IoT devices, and how secure and manage those devices at scale. This requires the expertise, tools and best practices of both informational technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) departments.
VMware Inc., a global leader in enterprise security, cloud, and endpoint technologies, and ADLink, a global leader in embedded IoT solutions, discussed many times about keys to success in industrial IoT initiatives. VMware brings strengths in enterprise security, cloud, and endpoint technologies to the partnership, whereas ADLink brings extensive experience with heavy industry, transport and distribution, and aero operations.
