Optimizing the Smart Factory with IoT and Big Data: Part 2 [Video]

In the competitive industrial and manufacturing arena, the strongest and smartest companies are seeking intelligent ways to collect, analyze, and make decisions about big data by implementing scalable Internet of Things solutions.

In collaboration with National Instruments, Intel engineers are helping industrial customers place real intelligence at the point of their data—that is, at the device, even on legacy equipment—and then extract the data and optimize which data is sent to the datacenter. By analyzing the right data in real-time via distributed analytics, companies are poised to make insightful decisions more quickly, which can lead to improved product yields, quality, factory uptime, new services, and many other benefits.

In a new video featuring a recent conversation with NI’s Ray Almgren and Intel’s Jim Robinson, we explore what customers are looking for from IoT and how its implementation drives business transformation.

Watch the video for insights and examples about big data and Internet of Things advances, including Jim’s and Ray’s thoughts on a forward-thinking implementation at a major energy company. Additionally, their conversation touches on Intel and NI participation in the SmartAmerica Challenge. It’s pretty exciting to see the advancements toward things like smart emergency response systems, securing the electrical grid, and all the possibilities that come from making smarter cities.




“We’ve always worked with [NI] to understand the real pulse of the market and real implementations for different applications.” – Jim Robinson, General Manager, Intel IoT Group





“We can acquire data—and be able to act on it—to get insights that will really transform businesses in ways we haven’t seen in the last twenty years.” – Ray Almgren, VP of Marketing, National Instruments
