Industrial Internet of Things and Big Data

When someone talks about IoT, most people think of home based devices like refrigerator and thermostats. These are good use cases but something much bigger than this which is not talked about much is industrial IoT.

Industrial IoT

Sensors are first class citizens in the world of industrial IoT. Sensor data gets routed though one central device at industrial site which is called edge device. This devices the industrial IoT in two parts

  • Edge analytics
  • Data lake analytics

Edge Analytics

Edge analytics provides the lowest latency analytics solution. Edge device collects data from on-prem network devices and use embedded analytics engine. This avoid network trip to the central location for quick queries and fixes.

Data Lake Analytics

Edge analytics is good to an extent but getting data to central location serves a different set of use cases where data from multiples sites can be used for collaboration/fleet learning.
