What are the critical problems that industrial companies are trying to solve with Industrial Interenet of Things? How are these problems being addressed and what are the key use cases? If you follow the press and vendor marketing, there are a wide range of outcomes being sought, but the overwhelming messaging is focused on no unplanned downtime and predictive maintenance – collectively referred as Asset Performance Management. This talk will explore the market challenges and opportunity around Asset Performance Management and GE Digital’s point of view on how this market is defined, emerging business models, GE’s technical architecture and several case studies.

Gartner defines Asset Performance Management as a market of digital tools and applications designed to optimize operations and maintenance of assets essential to the operation of an enterprise. Key focus outcomes of APM tools and technologies include reducing unplanned downtime, excess repair work, maintenance and material costs, extended asset run time and availability and reduction of operational, environmental and production risk.
