First it was Industrial Automation, then Big Data, and now its IoT. So, what has changed? We now have a myriad of smart connected devices (SCDs) including traditional Industrial Automation products. New devices (not traditional Industrial Automation devices) have embedded software to make them “look smart”. By themselves, the device is similar to many instruments that have been here for decades. The true value of connecting SCDs into a system, is leveraging the knowledge of the network coupled with data and context about operations, customers and the alignment of the planets. None of this comes from the device, the value add comes from the system and the applications “sitting on” the IoT infrastructure. What is new to IoT infrastructure? Not a lot, but a few new devices and one or two new protocols amidst thousands. Why the big deal? As we connect new devices we need applications to get more value from the assets, not to mention in many cases how the data is captured and sampled will need to be defined so that this desire for more data doesn’t break the bank, as the Telcos enjoy the proceeds of early adopter mistakes.

Organisation Compliance Reporting & Data Analysis requirements have therefore naturally become increasingly important as deregulation and privatisation takes a hold across the globe.
