In industrial settings, the opportunity that the IoT brings is shifting the current paradigm of reporting incidents to using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in predicting such incidents before they can occur. This can have significant time and cost benefits in industrial and commercial applications. Enabling such predictive capability in the IIoT starts by capturing relevant data from a multitude of sensors and devices. This white paper lays out the means to doing so.
Accessing the data currently generated by large existing networks of industrial things is crucial to turning it into machine mineable big data.
