What is IoT?

The Internet Of Things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects, so known as, "things" — that are embedded with sensors, software,
and other technologies that is used for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the Internet.
[1][2][3][4] Things have evolved due to the convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, ubiquitous computing,
commodity sensors, and embedded systems.[1] Traditional fields of embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems,
automation (including home and building automation), and others all contribute to enabling the Internet of things. In the consumer market,
IoT technology is most synonymous with products pertaining to the concept of the "smart home", including devices and appliances
(such as lighting fixtures, thermostats, home security systems and cameras, and other home appliances) that support one or more common
ecosystems, and can be controlled via devices associated with that ecosystem, such as smartphones and smart speakers.
The IoT can also be used in healthcare systems. - Wikipedia

Why IoT?

  ICS Trading had been creating automation, logging, reporting, recipe management systems for many years and we came across the following hurdles:

  We need to Bring Production Data into the Corporate Environment

  BUT

  Industrial IT and Corporate IT systems are incompatible

  BECAUSE

  Mutually, both infrastructures cannot tolerate the methodology and procedures regarded standard in each infrastructure A workaround is to install one server linking to both networks or bridge the networks with a firewall

  BUT

  It is expensive and requires compromise on IT security on both networks and continuous maintenance Some production entities might not even be automated at all Many times customers will express the need to have easy access to production data, but the cost, risk and bureaucracy associated with such a solution makes it unfeasible

  Data may exist on different systems: Process Historians, SCADA’s, log sheets, logistic systems, maintenance systems, enterprise systems, but the data needs to be analyzed relation to each other

IoT Offers..

  IoT offers an affordable solution to bridge the gap between Industrial IT and Corporate IT systems

  IoT offers convergence of data from different sources

  IoT can cost effectively collect data from entities that are not automated or integrated

  IoT offers remote telemetry and monitoring
