Coverage: Tego “Powers the Transition to ‘Real’ Edge Computing”

“It is an interesting approach that is likely a harbinger of how the edge computing market will develop.”
Charles Araujo, Intellyx

In its recent “Brain Candy Brief,’ analyst firm Intellyx — the first and only firm dedicated to agile digital transformation — reflected Tego’s main premise that many companies may be looking at the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing all wrong.

Indeed, as edge devices get smarter and generate orders of magnitude more data, computing needs to go up to the edge so that only a subset of data needs to be sent to the cloud for more resource-intensive processing and analytics, or to fuel learning in cognitive platforms.

This is Tego’s modus operandi, to let static assets compute directly, without requiring connectivity or calls to an external compute resource.

It is refreshing to see an industry luminary so clearly ‘get’ what Tego is about. Thank you, @charlesaraujo.

Tego CEO Tim Butler Featured in Aviation Week’s InsideMRO

“A smart-asset approach is about putting extensive digital product information and life-cycle history onto components themselves. Meaningful data simply becomes part of the things’ DNA, ripe to divulge wisdom everywhere they go across their entire life cycle.”

Tego’s CEO Tim Butler was a featured columnist in Aviation Week’s InsideMRO, discussing the mindset shift to the ‘things’ versus the ‘internet’ in ‘IoT,’ which simply must occur in order to bring about true digital transformation in aviation and MRO.

Tim likens the new mentality to the moment when companies realized that moving away from mainframe computing architecture to desktop PCs would liberate the the business to accomplish more than was ever thought possible.

That is a stunning consideration, when you really stop to think about it.

From the article:

Granting intelligence to an asset at its physical layer is a novel approach, a departure from typical IoT thinking that centers upon the “I” part of the IoT. It is our belief the focus has skewed too heavily toward connecting everything with a sensor all the time, to send streaming information to a database or cloud repository or enterprise system. When this happens, the value proposition for the IoT tends to get lost amid concerns of conducting a large-scale, expensive system rollout. It can engender a “where do we start” mentality among fragmented operational teams already struggling to define time lines, returns-on-investment and ownership schemes for digital adoption. This predicament already is holding many airlines back from putting digital technologies into place, despite the vast potential they hold for value creation.

After each service or inspection, new maintenance information is added to the asset’s digital history, and it retains a permanent, progressive record for all workers with authorized permission to access and perform local analysis. This is done via a local smartphone and connected reader and enables faster, safer and more precise decision-making in the field. If need be, the field worker can sync the latest data record back to the enterprise systems of the airline operator, OEM, or third-party maintenance provider, providing thorough visibility into how a part is being used and its performance over time.

In short, every asset becomes a node of distributed intelligence, with data available at the point of need to guide maintenance, prompt compliance activity for life-limited parts, ensure the authenticity of parts, verify part performance and even provide maintenance instructions directly. The asset becomes so smart that employees asks it what needs to be done!

Tego Announces Open, Multi-Platform Operating System for Powering Things with Intelligence

TegoOS Now Supports Major Mobile OS and RF Gateway Protocols

Boston, MA, September 19, 2016Tego, Inc. announced today the release of its open, multi-platform operating system, TegoOS, adding new capability to Tego’s innovative Asset Intelligence Platform, which provides local intelligence on any asset, anywhere. TegoOS now supports all major mobile and desktop operating systems, including iOS, Android, Windows and OS X. The open OS operates across all RF gateway protocols and handheld readers. It also enables distributed data about assets to be easily available to any cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) platform as well as core enterprise systems such as Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics applications.

“In the age of IoT, businesses need operational intelligence about the state and condition of their physical products, components and assets for better and safer business practices, and the use of open standards in IoT is a critical success factor,” shared Andy Mulholland, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research. “Tego is among the next generation of IoT companies bringing local data connectivity to assets for operational, maintenance and strategic purposes.”

Using TegoOS, assets can tell their story at the point of use by making their origin, authenticity, lifecycle maintenance history, or chain of custody available to authorized users. TegoOS empowers manufacturers, distributors and maintenance organizations across aerospace, life sciences, healthcare and manufacturing sectors to deploy scalable solutions for lifecycle and service management, regulatory and process compliance, and authenticity management. Out of the box, TegoOS provides encryption, compression and flexible and efficient file management. The process of storing data on a physical asset becomes a simple, one push-button activity.

The three main components of the TegoOS include:

  • A comprehensive software library supporting Tego’s Asset Intelligence Platform functionality and extensibility, securely storing and retrieving structured or unstructured data directly on any asset through a wireless communications protocol
  • A mobile application for AIP administrators and users with one common interface to RF gateway devices such as Motorola, ThingMagic, Intermec, Zebra, Impinj, TSL and LLRP gateways.
  • Integration capabilities for cloud-based IoT and enterprise systems

TegoOS powers Tego’s Asset Intelligence Platform (AIP), backed by a comprehensive portfolio of 30 patents. AIP provides the capability to embed digital information directly in the asset itself. From product specification and configuration, maintenance and use history, and intended use and compatibility, to process instructions or images, Tego’s AIP allows distributed data solutions to be installed quickly within small or large environments—providing line employees with critical operating data and ensuring asset data connectivity to devices and systems. TegoOS greatly simplifies the process of storing, recalling and communicating the information embedded in a product, component or asset.

“TegoOS powers data and insights for the T in the IoT,” said Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego. “It provides data connectivity to assets so businesses have the information they need to take the necessary actions to save money, keep users safe, and continue to build new revenue models.”

About Tego
