In this rapidly evolving world, your organization’s real estate, facilities and enterprise asset management technologies are likely producing more invaluable data than ever—but that volume of information isn’t simple to keep track of, let alone analyze and use. Fortunately, we’re wielding a powerful new data solution: the IBM® WatsonTM Internet of Things (IoT) Platform fuels business intelligence and analytical capabilities to help your organization stay ahead in the digital revolution.
The opportunity—and the data strategy challenge—continues to grow quickly. McKinsey predicts the data from connected devices will yield insights that drive economic value by more than $11 trillion by 2025. Already, industries across the board are beginning to leverage the power of IoT technology, building smart and more connected products—and in turn, challenging their infrastructure and operation leaders to pull together meaningful insights from disparate technology, applications, and analytical solutions.
Designed to connect complex data with simple business applications and industry solutions, the Watson IoT Platform acts as a simple, but powerful cloud-based gateway between IoT-enabled devices and networks. It enables real-time, predictive and cognitive analytics by ensuring the right information, from the right source, is accessible to the right applications.
Specifically, Watson IoT works by storing data from various device sensors and then providing visualization and cognitive analytics, ultimately uncovering actionable insights for infrastructure and operation leaders.
