PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 7, 2014 - vimana by System Insights was featured as one of the most important new platforms in the current issue of M2M NOW. vimana provides the industry’s first Big Data platform specifically designed for manufacturing. The article, authored by industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, noted with the sudden interest in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), manufacturing has finally received the attention it deserves. Even without the love of the technology companies, manufacturers were still able to produce amazing amounts of high quality products with incredible accuracy; there is a lot of room for improvement. According to Cisco, by 2017 there will be 1.7 billion wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) connections across the supply chain. They also estimate that smart factory technology can create US$1.95 trillion in value by 2022 by improving control, agility, and flexibility in the manufacturing processes. This is money saved by the industry because of more efficient practices; the improvement is a return on investment – which considers the cost of the technology.
The industry standard, MTConnect, has enabled us to move from an environment with a multitude of custom data sources to a common format and delivery mechanism. William Sobel, CEO of System Insights reported, “Using MTConnect, provides a read-only, secure, common transport and format for all manufacturing data from all devices, reducing the complexity and increasing the value that can be delivered by applications.”
