To be competitive, innovative solutions are needed at each step of the IoT value chain. Take industrial automation, for instance, where it’s imperative to avoid production disruptions that can result in significant revenue losses. Avoiding unplanned downtime requires remote monitoring and management, system health diagnostics, and knowledge of each machine’s operating parameters to enable failure prediction. One must also ensure that when failure is predicted, steps are taken to make sure that system recovery, if required, occurs in a timely fashion. A combination that can help achieve that phenomenon is Wind River’s Helix Device Cloud solution and Predixion Insight™, Predixion’s advanced analytics software.
