Re: Replacing or helping out "The Machine Whisperers"
Good point, Doug. The need will go from hardware whisperers to software refiners for the sensor data.

Re: Replacing or helping out "The Machine Whisperers"
Equipment Insight's cloud platform sounds like a good solution. The management of acquired sensor data should be fairly easy, but I expect it continues to be harder than it should be for many companies.

Replacing or helping out "The Machine Whisperers"
Lots of industries have wise "machine whisperers" who know what's going on with equipment just by listening to it, according to GE. Unfortunately, many of these people are retiring and bringing their expertise out the door when they leave. Industrial Internet apps are often pattern-detection applications whereby preventative maintenance is a big win. Merrill of TempuTech said his company is currently bidding on an adjacent-market application whereby a stone quary wants intelligent sensoring of the conveyor belts used in its limestone operations. When those belts go down, the business loses $50,000 per day, and TempuTech's proposed IoT application will cost less than a single day of downtime.

more to come
Agriculture industry also keenly interested in that other big data darling: the weather. More to come in sensors here, certainly.
