Stepping into the Internet of Things represents a series of critical design commitments, with potential for long-term risk as application needs shift between centralized and de-centralized computing. The potential for misstep warrants not only a serious focus on flexibility, but also a way to right-size the overwhelming prospect of becoming IoT-enabled. A smart strategy starts with remote monitoring – capitalizing on application-ready platforms that create value quickly and establish a flexible platform for future IoT development.
Application-ready integrated platforms enable fast and easy configuration of remote monitoring applications. Sensors can be added or may be available out-of-the-box, aiding in predictive and preventive maintenance. By accessing and sharing data in real time, OEMs and end-users reduce risk, better manage maintenance resources and help protect system lifecycle.
Equally as important, these integrated, "container-based" IoT platform systems can be deployed and moved as needed, removing reliance on external cloud services or on-premise servers. Edge computing and on-premise computing scenarios are both feasible, reducing long-term risk of additional costs or performance challenges. This independence both simplifies deployment and enhances reliability, supported by enhanced security features architected into every layer of the platform. Rather than being considered as a design afterthought, secure hardware dovetails with secure software to create the ‘security first’ mindset, critical to long-term success
All these factors work together to solve key issues for OEMs and their end-user customers. IoT development is streamlined and accelerated, accommodating both edge and on-premise designs without a change in architecture. Remote management of deployed systems reduces costly on-site diagnosis and system maintenance costs, improving uptime and performance reliability. And using a proven hardware/software platform allows for faster time to market, greater system security and asset protection.
