The Trend of Connected Systems


Trends like the Industrial Internet of Things, 5G, and the electrification of vehicles, coupled with the realities of maintaining distributed legacy systems, are inspiring companies to seek new approaches to systems management. The push toward connected and centrally coordinated systems has transformed theories and pilot projects into large-scale, distributed deployments with impactful business returns.


Companies derive these returns from the actionable, data-driven insights that help them maximize uptime, increase efficiency, and drive future product innovation. At the same time, they need to balance their adoption of new, connected technologies with continued support for valuable legacy assets that have long life cycles. Systems that manage, maintain, and extract insight from small-scale pilots or groups of systems are relatively straightforward to implement.


However, the next challenge awaits: scaling and managing large deployments, varying life-cycle stages, and distributed testers and nodes across entire plants, fabs, and factories. This includes tasks like remote software and system configuration as well as data management and performance monitoring for industries such as aerospace and defense, transportation, and manufacturing.
