Manufacturing has entered the big data era, with access to more information that can be used to increase throughput, boost yields, improve efficiency, and reduce downtime. But for many manufacturers, machine tools operate in relative silos, so it is a major challenge to collect, analyze, and act on data generated across the factory floor.

This webinar discusses how the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data technologies can overcome key hurdles with a solution based on ingredients from Dell, Intel, Mitsubishi Electric, and Revolution Analytics that provide:

  • World-class security as the foundation
  • Automated discovery and provisioning of edge devices to ease deployment
  • Data normalization through protocol abstraction to improve interoperability
  • Broad analytics infrastructure from edge to cloud to gain actionable insights
  • Infrastructure to monetize hardware, software, and data management from edge to cloud
