I just released a podcast that can also be seen on YouTube where I discuss whatever happened to IIoT. The reason for the whole IIoT frenzy came from management’s need for data. That was all more of an IT-driven project than OT. From the various IoT-related technologies, the industry has moved on to Data Orchestration and DataOps. One of the earlier companies I talked with about data ops was Hitachi Vantara. Additional news from that company follows. Note, also talking “Edge-to-Cloud” which has become the new IoT term in the IT world.
Hitachi Vantara, the digital infrastructure, data management, analytics, and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd., introduced new Lumada DataOps capabilities for automated, AI-driven data operations for all enterprise customers and Lumada Industrial DataOps, providing advanced analytics capabilities for industrial use cases.
Data sprawl and governance have become more difficult as data becomes increasingly distributed across the data center, edge, hybrid, and public cloud infrastructure. This complexity can hinder an organization’s ability to turn data into business value. In a recent DataOps Survey by 451 Research, data privacy, compliance, and data access and preparation are top priorities for data-driven organizations.
Today’s additions to the Lumada DataOps portfolio allow organizations to create a seamless data fabric governed by an enhanced data catalog for automated data quality improvements and governance. With the latest updates to Data Integration powered by Pentaho technology, customers can reduce time and complexity to discover, access, prepare and blend data across multiple data sources and locations. The new Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio includes IoT analytics models for industrial environments that seamlessly merge IT and OT data to unlock transformational business insights.
Lumada DataOps lets you automate the daily tasks of collecting, integrating, governing, and analyzing data on an intelligent platform providing an open and composable foundation for all enterprise data, while providing self-service data access to their choice of tools and analytics.
Today’s updates to Lumada DataOps include:
- Data Catalog – Accelerate business insights with Data Catalog v7.0 using trusted data built on IO-Tahoe technology including a powerful new user interface, data quality and Collibra connectivity.
- Data Integration – Integrate data across hybrid cloud with Pentaho v9.3 through flexible cloud deployment and new connectors for cloud data stores like Snowflake, MongoDB Atlas, Teradata, Elastic Search7.x and IBM MQ 9.2.
IT and OT Data Convergence for Digital Industrial Operations
Hitachi Vantara’s new Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio enables real-time insights and outcomes that power critical operations to be more predictable and manageable. It accelerates IT and OT data convergence by building a data fabric for analytic solutions from edge to multi-cloud. Lumada Industrial DataOps IIoT software automates data pipeline delivery across OT and IT sources, feeding industrial AI and ML models for predictive maintenance and operations optimization. Capabilities of the new Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio include:
- IIoT Core – Accelerate and scale operation application deployment with a complete IIoT data platform including Core, Gateway, Digital Twins, and Machine Learning Services.
- IIoT Analytics – Simplify AI and ML solutions creation through toolkits that simplify delivery through packaged Digital Twins with pre-trained ML models
