AIoT as supercharger for industrial IoT, and rethinking the Data Center.

Why AIoT Is Emerging As The Future Of Industry 4.0 (Forbes)

‘AI is going to supercharge industrial IoT at two different levels. Firstly, it impacts the telemetry data by augmenting the sensors with intelligence. Secondly, AI will be used to analyze the inbound telemetry data stream in real-time or in batch mode. It plugs itself into the start (devices) and the end (analysis) of the IoT spectrum.’ Janakiram MSV via Forbes

The Data Center Is (Almost) Dead (Gartner Research)

‘Many organizations are rethinking the placement of applications, based on network latency, customer population clusters and geopolitical limitations — for example, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or regulatory restrictions.”Gartner predicts that by 2025, 80% of enterprises will shut down their traditional data centers. In fact, 10% of organizations already have.”The shift away from the traditional data center continues, but not everything is moving to the cloud.’ Excerpt from Top 10 Emerging Trends Affecting Digital Infrastructure and Operations in 2019 by David Cappuccio and Ross Winser for Gartner.
