Features unique to those required by discrete manufacturers were then added, including a new IoT Data Platform for Discrete Manufacturing, which offers "core capabilities for IoT device management, data enrichment, data science (including AI and machine learning), and dashboards," and is designed to work with "massive" volumes of data, as well as real-time sensor behavior. said the product is currently available for purchase and, in fact, is already installed in more than 20 factories worldwide.
