IoT Data’s Human Component: A Q&A with Tim Butler

“…for companies who are grappling with IoT integration … edge computing is becoming a prime opportunity for enhanced employee performance and contribution to the whole.”

Thus begins Tim Butler’s Q&A session with the incomparable David Marshall of VM Blog, who knows quite a bit about the important technology trends and what they mean to business practitioners.

Pegged to the recent AWS launch of Greengrass, an initiative that takes on many of the same issues that Tego’s been working for years to solve, Tim provides ranging perspective on the value that edge computing stands to unlock. Highlights from the session include:

Why did AWS choose to launch on-premises compute solution?

Greengrass seems to explicitly acknowledge that constant data connectivity on edge devices isn’t easy, and it isn’t cheap. Instead, an approach that focuses on the “T” in the IoT (i.e. the “Thing”), which turns parts, components and other objects into smart conveyors of information, does not require constant connectivity or complex software integrations. The trick is in finding an easier way for these things to share their data, which is where AWS appears to be devoting its attention.

Does Greengrass give the IoT a boost to “cross the chasm” into large-scale digitization initiatives?

Wider recognition of the value of placing intelligence on the “T” in the IoT is analogous to companies realizing in the 1980s and 90s that moving away from mainframe computing architectures to desktop PCs could empower their companies to accomplish more. Instead of being locked into singular work streams from their “dumb green” digital terminals, employees could now read, write and store data locally, further their knowledge and understanding, broaden their work context, and produce more powerful daily outcomes.

How do you see the human dynamic changing as edge computing gains steam?

In today’s work environment, it is not uncommon for an employee at the edge to start to feel disconnected, or to feel like they’ve been made into an automaton. However, when data travels with an object, and that object becomes progressively more informed each time it interacts with a human, a funny thing happens. Humans can suddenly absorb and contribute to the organization’s intelligence in ways that add more meaning and context to their roles.

We believe edge computing will yield a better sense of engagement for employees at the edge, empower them to more personally contribute more often to a final outcome. It may just become the perfect expression of man and machine working together.

With Greengrass launch, Amazon validates market readiness for IoT data processing and enhanced edge computing

By Timothy Butler, CEO

 

With its introduction last week of Greengrass, AWS paid a huge favor to anyone seeking to extract more value from IoT data. In his blog, AWS’s CTO Werner Vogels describes three “laws” that define why localized data processing (a.k.a., edge computing) is important:

Physics. It takes time to send data to the cloud, and networks don’t have 100% availability. Customers in physically remote environments, such as mining and agriculture, cannot afford to let these issues affect their operations.

Economics. The IoT creates a lot of data, much of it low-value. Businesses need to be able to keep and conduct analysis only the high-value data.

Regulations. Legal requirements often call for data to be isolated, duplicated or handled in a very specific way. Some governments even impose restrictions on where data may be stored or processed. (I.e., data cannot be transported physically or electronically at all).

On several fronts, Amazon sees the same opportunity as Tego. Both organizations are truly endeavoring to break down barriers for IoT adoption that stem from a need for always-on connectivity. The company also reinforces much of what Tego has understood for years, that there is tremendous power in getting data closer to assets, so that decision-making can be made by workers who are in the fray. Sometimes, the most important decisions can only be informed from short-lived data, and at a precise moment in time. Once that moment’s passed, the data loses its value, and the opportunity is lost.

Even still, Amazon seems to lack real understanding about where the transformative effects of edge computing lie. Where does the data originate? Is it able to share a unique historical context with employees? Does it allow on-site personnel to improve downstream outcomes? This is where putting data onto assets becomes the missing link. When data travels with an object, and is able to become progressively more detailed at every point of human interaction, humans can absorb and contribute to the organization’s intelligence in ways that add meaning to their roles. Edge computing is not just about creating faster, quicker, data. It’s about finding better ways to use data, and that requires active employees who are enabled to own the process.

Greengrass appears destined to help with decisions at the point of read, but another question lingers: can it likewise make human assets more valuable? Big, enterprise value has to start with a small, specific improvements in job roles and performance. That’s what will drive positive, enterprise-level outcomes. An airline empowers its ground crews to reduce time on the tarmac and thus improve overall profitability; medicines prove their authenticity to an aftermarket caregiver through an embedded, digital signature with NSA-level encryption, and expand trust for a brand; line workers in an aseptic pharmaceutical plant use data to protect the company against batch-level contamination and the specter of a vast recall. Focus on solving small issues, and they will add up to BIG!

Amazon, please show us the path for Greengrass to “go big.”

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.”
