Enterprise/Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems with global scale, legacy sub-systems, cloud services, connected edge-devices, and OT/IT alignment present a new challenge in terms of interoperability, end-to-end performance and security. How will they be delivered?
M2M and SCADA are relatively narrow, tactical applications compared to the potential of the Industrial IoT. It’s all about the potential to extract valuable insights from data in ways never before possible.
The trouble with industry sensors until fairly recently is they didn't provide much information beyond whether something was working or it wasn't. The Industrial Internet of Things is about to change with an explosion of smart sensors.
