Finbar Gallagher commented on Finbar Gallagher's blog post The Information Value Chain
"Hi Tim,
You are correct, there are often multiple value-streams: for instance in manufacturing, I would look at the value delivered by the Operator, the Manager, the Engineer, etc, and the information required for each. These value chains often lead…"

Finbar Gallagher commented on Samuel Walton's blog post SCADA vs IoT: the role of SCADA systems in Manufacturing's Industry 4.0
"Very useful. One of the biggest barriers to developing IIoT is confusion about the roles of different technologies in the 'ecosystem.' Your article helps to clear that fog!"

Why propose a Standard Architecture for IoT?

Building a system to get value from the Internet of Things (IoT) or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a complex process involving a number of very distinct components. We need an Architecture for…
