You may have heard of the Internet of Things the growing network of devices that can connect, communicate and transfer data between one another. The same transformation is prevalent in the world of industrial manufacturing and automation through the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The reduced cost of connectivity, the high volume of data from more devices than ever before is giving rise to a new era of opportunities. At Wonderware we have absorbed the concept of the Industrial Internet of Things and have been delivering value across the continuum of technologies for the last 30 years. As a plethora of new connected devices becomes available, and the cost of instrumenting remote equipment plummets, the need for unifying systems which provide context and organization of the massive amounts of new data available is becoming essential. And here’s a glimpse behind the scenes as Matt Long of Microsoft explains how Microsoft and Schneider Electric are working together to design technology products and new features around cloud computing and IoT to respond to customer needs.
