EMAIL INTERVIEW – Tony Paine and Ken Sinclair
Tony Paine, CEO, Kepware Technologies
Sinclair: What is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)?
sets its sights on Internet-enabling all hardware and software
components (the “Things”) that comprise an automation system. This will
allow for smarter automation where Things can share information, learn
about their surroundings, and auto-tune themselves to achieve optimum
throughput and minimal downtime.
Sinclair: What are the biggest challenges facing the IIoT?
Paine: At Kepware we believe the following are the biggest challenges facing the IIoT:
Sinclair: So how can companies alleviate some of these challenges?
In order to alleviate some of the preceding challenges, IIoT strategies
will focus on pushing data into a centralized cloud platform. This
platform and its corresponding services will be administered by IT
experts familiar with the managed world of IP and made available to
anyone with the proper credentials and an Internet connection.
Leveraging the power of cloud computing and its multitudinous resources
will make the required storage and processing power available to handle
the zettabytes of data that will be collected, analyzed, and archived.
Furthermore, the overall uptime of these platforms continues to trend
upwards as they become more resilient to the increasing demand and
expectations of our connected world.
Sinclair: What do you see as a solution?
Paine: In order to seamlessly integrate industrial data into IIoT, a new communications platform is required. This platform requires extensive knowledge of the intricate realm of OT and the state-of-the-art and rapidly-changing domain of IT.
