Safety and reliability must be a cornerstone of IIoT deployments

People often see the Industrial IoT (IIoT) in a narrow view, namely the ability to increase efficiency, productivity, and cost savings. While that’s true, it’s a limited list of benefits based on one’s understanding of connectivity, data, and information to influence behavior. There are several ways to lead organizational change, and it all depends on one’s role and how they view their role in the organization.

The IoT and IIoT need embedded analytics to make sense of all this multidisciplinary data
The IoT and IIoT need embedded analytics to make sense of all this multidisciplinary data

Embedded analytics aims to provide higher accessibility of business intelligence and analysis of data to the various users of an organization. Traditional business analytics or intelligence is aimed at extracting data and performing basic level of analysis. However, such applications are seldom capable of solving high-level analytic problems.
