While the Internet of Things (IoT) has been making our personal lives easier for quite some time, Industrial IoT (IIoT) is still in its infancy. All the same, the train is rolling and there’s no stopping digitalisation. Read on to find out how you can harvest data from industrial applications with Bechtle and CloudRail.
The IIoT is about capturing the information that exists in a machine or even an entire factory, and using cloud-driven applications to visualise it or machine learning to optimise quality and maintenance schedules.
Bechtle Bonn/Cologne recently embarked on a strategic cooperation with CloudRail, a Mannheim-based start-up that creates solutions to extract information in both greenfield and brownfield installations through industry-standard protocols as well as sensor technology that can be retrofitted to existing machines. Available data can then be processed, encrypted and securely synced to any cloud platform such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS), and also to local systems.
