Optimize Your Software Stack for Industrial Internet of Things

According to Accenture, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will help companies boost revenues by increasing production, driving innovation and transforming their workforce. The most conservative estimates place spending on the IIoT worldwide at $500 billion by 2020. GE calculated the economic impact of just a 1 percent cost savings across industrial segments including aviation, power, healthcare, rail and oil & gas at $276 billion. What are the ingredients that will help your team contribute to securing your company's piece of this enor­mous pie? And how can you ensure that you get your innovative products to market ahead of your competition while still offering your customers the best user experience?

Mentor Graphics, Raima, and Datalight have collaborated to define and measure data management for IIoT edge devices. This paper examines the benefits that come from optimizing the software components of the data storage stack in terms of performance, reliability and device lifetime.
