IT: The Gatekeeper of your IoT Deployment

IT: The Gatekeeper of your IoT Deployment

By Tom Gibbings In the early days of an IoT project most of the team is focused on figuring out what data they want to collect and overcoming the constant stream of technical challenges. What is often not well understood is that after all the other problems are solved, the fate of the project is contingent on the approval of…
Driving the IoT Conversation Forward

Driving the IoT Conversation Forward

By Dave Bennett The concepts and ideas of IoT are maturing every year, and 2017 promises to be a banner year for IoT, but make no mistake, we are still in IoT’s infancy.  According to a survey done by Accenture last year, 19% of business and government professionals were only vaguely familiar with IoT! My customers are more familiar than…
It’s all About Industrial IoT at Embedded World 2017

It’s all About Industrial IoT at Embedded World 2017

By Gareth Noyes Wind River is excited to be here this week at Embedded World 2017 and the theme top of mind for most is overwhelmingly Industrial IoT. Very fitting given we introduced on day one a breakthrough software platform for control systems we believe will transform the future of Industrial IoT. Wind River Titanium Control is an on-premise cloud-scale…

Talking IIoT Digital Transformation at ARC Forum

By Gareth Noyes The ARC Industry Forum is underway this week in Orlando, Florida, and Wind River is excited to be a part of the “Industry in Transition: Realizing the Digital Enterprise” discussion. Industrial enterprises are at a crossroads. While their aging proprietary automation systems are reliable and stable, they do not offer the operational flexibility nor have the ability…
A 2016 IoT Snapshot

A 2016 IoT Snapshot

By Dave Bennett 2016 was an exciting year in IoT for Wind River.  We introduced the latest version of Wind River Helix Device Cloud, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) IoT platform that enables manufacturers to proactively monitor and manage their devices in the field.  And we had excellent momentum last year on the customer adoption/usage front that is carrying over in 2017.…

Wind River Continues Longstanding Leadership in Global Embedded Software Market

By Michael Krutz The IoT and embedded operating systems provide the backbone of the software that ship in billions of new devices every year. According to VDC Research, embedded OS unit shipments will grow from 13.3B in 2016 to 19.3B in 2020. Given this competitive environment, I’m excited to share that once again Wind River topped both the real-time operating…

Wind River Brings Safety-Critical Expertise to Functional Safety for Industrial IoT

By Chip Downing With the accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is increasingly important to identify and implement safety-related systems for smart grids, connected vehicles, robotics, industrial control systems, smart factories, and more. And when it comes to ensuring the reliability of these can't-fail systems, Wind River has a proven track record of success across critical infrastructure…
Software-Defined Infrastructure in Industrial IoT: How it Works

Software-Defined Infrastructure in Industrial IoT: How it Works

By Gareth Noyes In my last blog post I introduced the idea of a software-defined infrastructure approach driving and accelerating digital transformation in industrial automation. It offers a more flexible, adaptable and cost-effective alternative for developing automation systems leveraging the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In contrast to conventional single-vendor, proprietary automation solutions, open software-defined infrastructure platforms allow for a…
