For years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has been hyped for its transformative potential. Today, however, more companies are embracing the IoT in very practical ways with clear value propositions. But with increasing access to devices and sensor platforms connected to the private and public networks which is generating ever larger amounts of data, it’s imperative that organizations unlock the value of all that data. One key step is to “democratize” the data, making it available for all potential end-users. Another step is to use IoT analytics and techniques like data visualization to optimize operations and to provide insight into supply chain and predictive maintenence.
Infinitive CEO Denis McFarlane spoke with Chief Technologist Jim McGinn about how Infinitive uses the powerful and cost-effective cloud computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help organizations optimize their IoT connectivity and unlock their data for deeper insights.
For instance, Infinitive has worked with global oil and gas companies to capture and analyze sensor data from its mission-critical drilling equipment for predictive maintenance. By understanding in advance when parts need replacing, companies can minimize operational downtime as well as costs. Similarly, Infinitive has helped clients create “smart buildings” that optimize facilities management processes and costs.
In this video, Jim also highlights how AWS is effective in:
• Improving project efficiency, cost savings, and scalability – including the ability to get started in just a few days
• Meeting global cybersecurity and privacy requirements around the world through tailored data architecture and deployment models
• Meeting the needs of diverse industries, from auto manufacturing to pharmaceuticals
