Internet of Things
Add value. Predict trends. Be proactive.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept of inter-networking connectable devices (things) to the internet, and/or to each other. It is also one of the most exciting and tactile megatrends that your business can adopt.
IoT allows your devices to contribute directly to the information value chain of your organisation. When devices are adding data, it’s immediate and always accurate, and you can consumerise your data using Business Intelligence and big data.
An IoT project we delivered for an Australian public rail facility ensures that traffic and trains are always travelling optimally over their network. The behaviour of each boom gate at every level crossing is measured. If a potential issue (for example, a gate’s too slow to go up or down), their system recognises there’s a problem, generates a work order in their ERP and sends a crew to fix the problem.
All without human intervention.
Did you know that the A380 generates 2.5TB of IoT data per day, per plane?
IoT is an entire ecosystem in itself. It uses advanced technologies to manage the input from millions of devices. Given the sheer volume of IoT data generated, your ERP or CRM isn’t the place to store it. Instead, this layer needs to be architected into your business to ensure that the information is correct, timely and available to the right systems, and at the right time.
Fusion5 advocate, and are fluent in the use of, integration orchestration with products like Jitterbit. We are also experts in the implementation of base pub/sub messaging technologies at scale. We ensure that all of your systems that want to know about the IoT information are informed.
We are passionate about this area of technology and would love to talk to you about how you can use your devices to add measurable value to your business.
