IoT Innovation Review & Roundtable on Predictive Maintenance

IoT Innovation Review & Roundtable on Predictive Maintenance

The IoT Forum November Member meeting is focused on discovering innovation, exchanging knowledge, growing professional networks, and above all building partnerships across the entire IoT ecosystem. Non-members interested in this month's Roundtable, seats may be available here.

This month members review 8 startups and new products from across a wide spectrum of Internet connected technologies. Pitches and demos are punctuated with introductions, networking, and browsing demo tables.  See the Agenda for details on which technologies and product segments will be introduced on this agenda.

  • Startup Review Session: 4 young companies introduce their new technologies, products, and ideas to IoT Forum members
  • New Product Introductions: 3 established companies introduce new, ready-to-buy, IoT products and services
  • Customer Case Study: A fireside chat with an IoT solution company and their customer who talk about the deployment, the service, and how/why they work together.

After a morning of startup and product introductions, we dive into a discussion on IoT in predictive maintenance over lunch with some invested guests and experts.

If there is one clear leader in the application of IoT technology that can provide immediate ROI, it’s Predictive Maintenance (PdM). PdM is the synergistic marriage of Predictive Analytics and the Industrial IoT. Today’s roundtable guests will include sensor, analytics, ERP and cloud companies who will share their thoughts on the opportunities for PdM.

The concept of PdM is a quick sale for IoT because it is immediately obvious to the managers in industry that preventing malfunctions can save money, and:

  • reduce variability
  • increase predictability
  • enforce on-time delivery
  • improves safety

Often, fixing the problem before it blows out of proportion is cheaper than fixing it after. And it’s not just savings on the machine in question. By using PdM and proactively preventing malfunctions, the entire production line or process is protected. Instead of one machine breaking down and stopping all work, the problem can be detected, predicted, and solved without costing any unpredicted downtime.

IoT Forum members meet monthly in Silicon Valley to discover new companies and technologies, meet partner prospects in person, review market opportunities across the wide spectrum of connected things, and deep dive into a specific segment with the help of buyers and experts. Meeting registration is included in IoT Forum membership
