Case Study: The Power of Connectivity (Industrial Internet of Things)
The software technology team at a multinational industrial corporation wanted to learn more about technologies that could enable them to build a reference architecture for edge management as it pertains to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The work of this team was centered around real-time embedded applications. With a shifting focus towards the industrial internet of things, and the development of smarter industrial software and networking technologies, the team help to understand industry best practices for managing software and devices across a large number of heterogeneous devices.
Software Landscaping Scalability Architecture (Data Analysis, Security)
Maven recommended launching an Electronic Survey with experts across various industries, including data center operations and infrastructure, software and hardware development for IoT applications, embedded software, and sensor systems. The team received over 40 solid responses from qualified participants. Pleased with the results, the group selected 20 qualified Mavens whose qualifications were exceedingly impressive to participate in a 3 Day ThinkTank. With three full days of engagement, the team was impressed with the resulting conversation from the participants. The information gathered was valuable as they were able to gain insight on a multitude of architectures within different industries.
“Maven helped to connect us with experts across various industries to address best practices for software across a large number of heterogeneous devices, the role of edge management within IoT, and further develop a reference architecture. We didn’t know such impressive and valuable insights were even possible in such a short period of time.” – Chief Technology Officer, Software
