The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.
The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads.
Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave Duggal, Founder and Managing Director of EnterpriseWeb LLC, focused on public-private work being done today to identify the IoT standards, architecture, frameworks and security needed to enable and accelerate the $32 trillion opportunity ahead.
