Connecting ‘dark assets’ to IBM Watson

Prismtech/Intel team on edge computing solution.

Speaking at IBM InterConnect 2017 in Boston, CTO Toby McClean described how PrismTech’s Vortex Edge connectivity solution is ‘Lighting up dark assets’ connected to IBM’s Watson internet of things platform. Prismtech has teamed with Intel on an edge computing solution that reduces the effort and resources required to acquire data from dark (i.e. unconnected) assets. Data can be either edge processed using Prismtech’s predictive analytics and/or forwarded to IBM Watson for ‘cognitive services.’ Vortex Edge provides a fully integrated hardware, data connectivity and analytics package, turning Industrial IoT data into real-time predictive maintenance insights and actions. More nifty apps on show in the Innovation Factory Playroom.
