Schlumberger Software Technology Innovation Center (STIC) collaborates closely with the numerous Schlumberger technology centers around the world, and with leading software industry partners and universities, to jointly develop software technology solutions to support the Schlumberger business and E&P customers.
STIC targets a wide array of software technologies including high-performance computing, cloud, big data, analytics, Internet of Things
(IoT), Industrial Internet
, visualization and user experience.
These technologies form part of their vision of how software and new computing technology will progressively transform the way they do things in Schlumberger, including the company’s software technology platforms.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills.
Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance.
Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning
makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them.
IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security.
Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
Globally, countries, cities, industries and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the Internet of Everything (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data and things. When people, processes, data and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value. Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real time business insight. The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco are delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized, application centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is an expansion of internet use that enables people, machines and elements including workpieces and objects to make use of new technological possibilities. All participants, computers and machines require distinct identification and communicate on the same basis. This makes the exchange of information (identification, addressing, data formats, transfer) standardised and uniform. Established technologies (hardware, software) from the IT domain can thus be used in new domains such as production processes and logistics chains.
Rittal is helping many companies participate in the Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) connectivity to reach Industry 4.0
integration, by adopting the modular structures necessary to help smart factories stay functional.In the Industry 4.0
era, data-controlled equipment and automated systems not only give managers visibility of what’s happening in their enterprises down to individual work cells, but also the power to effect change and avert disasters when necessary. Companies without an Industry 4.0
philosophy are more likely to be forced to deal with the after-effects of outages and miscommunications caused by data disconnects.
Our goal isn’t just to build the best lift trucks possible, but to create solutions that enable customers to improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of their businesses. As a leading forklift manufacturer, Hyster-Yale relies on our extensive industry network to conduct both primary and secondary research. Our research helps us make informed decisions at every level and ensures Yale® and Hyster® dealers and their customers are equipped to handle whatever is next. Research begins with an acute understanding of customer applications. Embedded product strategy teams work with lift truck dealers, customers, consultants and even other material handling manufacturers to conduct in-depth qualitative and quantitative research. This primary research helps us better understand the dynamics affecting our customers, other lift truck manufacturers and the industries we all serve. The results are combined with more rigorous secondary research enabling us to identify and follow wider trends in the materials handling industry. After analyzing the primary and secondary research, product strategy teams work with Hyster-Yale product development, manufacturing and support teams to design solutions that best fit end-user applications.
NEC will capitalise on its extensive track record and its leading technologies in the areas of software-defined networking (SDN), big data, cloud and security in order to construct flexible and robust IoT systems.
It aims to make positive use of IoT in extensive areas including social infrastructures, such as water demand forecast and traffic monitoring, security management for communities and for key facilities and energy management, in addition to the corporate use of IoT by manufacturers, distributors, transport operators and others.
In this connected world, the proliferation of Intelligent Devices
has created a market for entirely new solutions based on Internet of Things
(IoT) technology. With the ever-increasing amount of data that is inherent in an IoT world, the key to gaining real business value is effective communication among all elements of the architecture.
Oracle’s IoT platform delivers an integrated, secure, comprehensive platform for the entire IoT architecture across all vertical markets. Its IoT solution allows companies to gain new data-driven insights and drive actions from IoT data, enabling their businesses to deliver innovative new services faster than their competitors, with less risk.
The privacy and security implications of a network of devices that tracks our preferences, our financial transactions, our location, and our health may seem alarming. The possibilities of using that data to glean deeper insight into human nature, however, are limitless.
“I think there are certainly lots of things that we have to be careful of, like privacy, in these oceans of data,” says Rick Smolan, former photographer for Time, Life, and National Geographic and creator of The Human Face of Big Data project and book. “I deeply believe that big data is going to have 1,000 times more impact than the Internet on our lives.”
Using big data for good, not evil
We may be in the “caveman era of big data,” as Smolan calls it, but manufacturers and researchers are already finding myriad ways to use big data to make lives better. He provides these examples:
- Belkin customers who use their Conserve Insight Energy Use Monitor can see how much energy their devices and appliances use. The monitor shows operation costs and the amount of carbon dioxide produced by the electricity they consume.
- Progressive Casualty Insurance Company can install its Snapshot device in your car to track your speed, location, driving habits, and number of people in your car. This can help parents ensure their teen drivers are safe behind the wheel. Progressive will also lower your insurance rates if you prove to be a safe driver.
- Researchers at Manchester University in the United Kingdom have also created a helpful tool. They invented a carpet embedded with sensors that can immediately detect when someone falls and may be able to predict the likelihood of a future fall. Thanks to this innovative solution, seniors can safely live in their own homes instead of moving into managed care.
Device data as opportunity
Machine data presents an opportunity for your organization too. The challenge is to communicate the value of Machine Data
to your customers. For instance, utilities use Smart Meters
to measure customers’ consumption more accurately and at more frequent intervals.
This provides better visibility to customers into consumption patterns during the month. Logistics and delivery firms track traffic and weather patterns to develop more efficient delivery routes that get packages to customers’ doors more quickly.
Ultimately, as more devices connect to the Internet of Things
, your organization will be able to delve into Machine Data
and find out how to make your customers’ lives better. Big data is an opportunity, rather than a burden.
“I think someday we’ll look back at 2013 as the year that our lives and our world started to change,” says Smolan. “Big data utilization is giving us this real time feedback loop we’ve never had before. I’m hoping it’s what will enable us as a species to address some of the biggest challenges that we face going forward.”
