Re: more to come
The new technologies such as big data, IoT are there and it depends on how we use it. GE is taking the right direction to move forward - we need not only a smarter IT, but smarter industry.

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: more to come
It will be interesting to see how the agriculture makes use of big data. For weather, it's a given, but to integrate the two will result in good things, I'm hoping.

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.

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

Agriculture and IOT
There is something very heartening about the oldest science in the world being helped out by the newest. Grain storage seems like something that can be quite dangerous if not handled just right, but also something that is very amenable to automation, just the thing for the IOT.
