Industrial IoT (IIoT) 125+ Startups die de fabrieken transformeren. om te volgen - CBInsights

 

CBInsights volgt verschillende markten en technologieën vanuit een investeerdersperspectief. Een uniek perspectief van verschillende ontwikkelingen op wereldschaal van technologie-startups en bedrijven om te volgen. 
Deze bedrijven vormen de basis voor het transformeren van : productiebedrijven, olievelden en aanvoer. 

 Source : CBInsights IIoT Startups, May 5th 2017

So far, the IIoT wave transforming asset-heavy industries has been led by the old guard of tech giants such as GE, IBM, and Cisco..

With connected devices like Nest and Sonos breaking into the mainstream, the IoT has become one of the most-discussed tech trends of the last twenty years. But the IoT extends well beyond the home and consumer-level gadgets. Asset-heavy industries like manufacturing, logistics, mining, oil, utilities and agriculture have also begun to apply IoT systems to improve efficiency and results. With machines and specialized sensors collecting data at every step of production, the potential gains from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are enormous. Just in 2016 alone, startups bringing digitization to industry saw more than $2.2B of investment.

Large corporates have also been involved in M&A in the space. Recently, General Electric, for example, acquired IoT platforms Bit Stew Systems and Nurego, in addition to two large 3D printing acquisitions this past fall.

So far, the IIoT wave has been led by the old guard of industrial tech companies such as GE, IBM, and Cisco, who envision the IIoT as a core component of their future businesses. GE, in particular, pioneered the term “Industrial Internet” when announcing its $1.5B R&D commitment back in 2012.

But more and more startups are attacking the needs of heavy industry by developing sensors, cloud platforms, networking infrastructure, as well as machine learning software to extract insights from the deluge of data. Using CB Insights data, we mapped out the startup landscape within IIoT, with a new approach that categorizes companies by where they sit in the tech “stack,” starting from hardware all the way down to AI-powered analytics.

Note: While some companies may fit into multiple categories and parts of the stack, we mapped companies based on their primary use-case. This market map is not meant to be exhaustive of companies in the space. 

MapFinal 2

The category breakdown is as follows:

  • Sensors & Connectivity

    • Connectivity — wireless network providers like SigFox and Ingenu act as the telecoms for the IoT age. Most companies here provide LPWAN (low-power wide area network) connectivity, which is popular radio band for IoT devices because existing cellular systems aren’t power- and bandwidth-efficient enough for systems sending small packets of data. Some, like Senet use the LoRaWAN spectrum, and others like SigFox work with ultra-narrowband specifically for low-power devices. 

    • Sensors & Monitoring — some companies in this area are solely sensor or system on chip (SoC) makers like Ineda Systems, but the category also includes more “full stack” (but industry agnostic) sensor and monitoring platforms like SamsaraHelium, and Electric Imp.

    • M2M / Satellite — sometimes Industrial IoT assets operate in rural and less connected parts of the world. Satellites can be a more effective way for sensors to transmit data, and companies like Kepler Communications offer a space-based communication network. With similar advantages in isolated industrial environments, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication is a more decentralized way to pass information between devices, and companies like Filament are applying blockchain architecture to do so with low-power industrial sensors.

  • Edge Devices & Connected Objects

    • Inspection Drones — startups offering drone hardware or image analysis services for industrial inspection. Some startups like Skycatch have individual use cases, such as construction. Recently, drone makers famous for their consumer drones like 3D Robotics have moved into the inspection space. While it’s mostly aerial drones for now, the category encompasses all types including underwater drones and pipe inspecting drones such as those made by RedZone Robotics.

    • 3D Printing — leveraging materials science and robotics, companies like Desktop Metal and Carbon 3D are bringing the customization benefits of 3D printing to an industrial scale. 3D printing tech is starting to go beyond just prototyping tools to being production-scale for making parts, which is why corporate venture arms of GE and BMW are investing here.

    • Industrial AR/VR — headsets and mobile AR specifically tailored for industrial settings and field service. Daqri and Atheer are well-funded headset makers that focus on enterprise and industrial settings. Others like Scope AR do similar work in field service using mobile and tablets, employing AR to highlight parts on industrial equipment while connected to support experts in real-time.
    • Wearables — IoT sensors worn on the body in industrial environments. Strong Arm Technologies makes a safety wearable and some industrial smartglass makers like Ubimax and Upskill also have wearables offerings.
    • Robotics & Exo — industrial automation robots along with exoskeletons that augment human abilities. Companies like Rethink and Righthand Robotics both make the classic arm-shaped industrial robots for manufacturing. Clearpath Robotics does warehouse robotics, as well as a host of ruggedized ground and sea-faring drones. And companies like Kindred and Sarcos are developing worker exoskeletons that can help handle heavy materials or be remotely operated for inspections.
  • Universal Platforms & Edge Intelligence
    • Universal Platforms — cloud vendors here commonly market themselves as general platform-as-a-service (PaaS) companies that allow other IoT and IIoT companies to manage and maintain the capture of data from their device networks. This includes the mostly industry-agnostic platforms like C3 IoT and Altizon that do cloud analytics for industrial companies.

    • Fog & Edge Computing — computing done at the “edge” or closer to the sensor is a trending shift occurring within the IIoT architecture. Companies like Saguna Networks do edge computing (close to the point of collection), whereas a company like Foghorn Systems does fog computing (think a lower-hanging cloud that’s done on-site like a LAN). Both methods allow mission-critical devices to operate safely without latency of transmitting all data to a cloud, which can also save big on bandwidth.

  • Applied Sensor Networks
    • Fleet — sensor networks and solutions for connected trucking fleets. Companies like Veniam are focused on the connectivity aspect, where others like Vnomics sell optimization and vehicle monitoring technology.
    • Oil & Gas —  companies using connected sensor networks in the oil industry include GroundMetrics (locating wells), Tachyus (extracting oil and gas), and Aptomar (spill safety).
    • Agriculture — companies like Blue River Technology and Farmbot are bringing robotics to agriculture. Others like Farmers Edge and Terravion are about capturing and analyzing farm data and tractor telematics for more efficient production.
    • Smart Grid – startups in this area develop tech that enables more efficient distribution of electricity, gas and water, and often market to utility companies. TrilliantTendril, and BluePillar are smart-meter enabled solutions for utilities and large enterprises to manage usage and reporting.
    • Factory — Eigen Innovations and the companies in this category are more vertical-specific platforms for manufacturing analytics. Eigen, for example, uses video and sensor data on factory floors to ensure process and quality control.
    • Warehouse — robotic movers and RFID sensor systems that target the warehouse. Fetch Robotics, for example, does material transport on warehouse floors. Alien Technologies, one of the most well-funded startups in all of IoT, does RFID tagging tech for the supply chain.
  • Advanced Analytics, Edge Intelligence & Protection
    • AI, ML, Predictive Analytics — software that allows companies to find insights and derive predictive analytics such as when machines will need maintenance. Most companies in the category are like Maana and work by applying AI to mining machine data, but others, like Augury Systems, offer a full sensor suite that detects machine anomalies and offers predictive analytics.
    • Cybersecurity — companies in this category develop cybersecurity solutions for IIoT and industrial control systems (ICS) in heavy industry. The IIoT has already suffered serious hacks; a German steel mill suffered “massive damages” after hackers accessed a blast furnace that workers could not properly shut down. Bastille Networks is one company that focuses on protecting the wireless transmission of IoT and RFID devices, and Claroty is a well-funded company working on protecting industrial control systems.

2017-05-23 : 3IF Annual Conference 2017: Internet of Things & Digital Transformation for Industry

 banner

3IF ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2017:

Is the platform where industrial innovations can meet cross industry, with the main theme of utilizing information technology to enable digital transformations, using internet technology. The 3IF conference brings together various technologies and use cases from different industries, with the aim to facilitate business modeling, creativity, concepts and advance towards optimal utilization of IoT, data analytics, big data, cloud and web services, with the opportunity presented by various digital evolutions and technologies and standards under developments. Best practices, major changes and revolutionary developments, coordinating proof of concepts, scaling up to production, process industry learning from discrete manufacturing and reversely, machine operators indicating needs to machines builders and reversely, how are we on an international level in Europe and versus the rest of the world. What can we expect from policy makers, solution providers and industry associations, sharing practical information, strategic insights and real-life experiences.

  

The 3rd Innovation Wave...?
Over the last 200 years, the world has experienced several waves of innovation. The Industrial Revolution saw innovations in technology applied to manufacturing. The Internet Revolution allowed machines to connect and exchange information. The two combined have set the stage for the next wave, that we are calling the “Industrial Internet”, or Industrial Internet of Things” (IIoT). This last wave pushes the boundaries of machines and will drastically increase productivity, efficiency and flexibility in the production process: Processes that govern themselves, with intelligent machines that take corrective action to avoid unplanned downtime of machinery. Each mobile device indicating the status of any digital components within the production environment, providing employees mobile access to real-time information....the possibilities seem endless.

This transformation has already started, yet the Industrial Internet is still in its infancy stage. On another note there are many aspects of the daily operations that are ready for the type of improvements provided by IIoT technology; that can deliver tangible benefits with a fast return on investment. Having said that, companies are faced with tackling day-to-day issues and with insufficient resources to survey new technologies and plan improvement projects. They should keep business model innovation as a long term goal and focus on what is practical and achievable right now.

ARC


On May 15th and 16th 2018, ARC Advisory Group will host its European Industry Forum (EIF) at the Meliã Hotel Sitges in Spain. The European Industry Forum is part of ARC’s successful series of worldwide conferences in the USA, India, China, and Japan.

It's happening fast. Everywhere we turn, devices and processes are becoming more connected and intelligent. Production machines, gas turbines, and thermostats all stream data. Refineries, oil platforms, mines, and wind turbines are optimizing asset and operating performance. Design software links to additive machines to print parts directly. And it's only the beginning.

How will disruptive technologies change existing products, processes and plants?
Can cybersecurity threats be overcome?
When will machine learning and artificial intelligence transform operations?
Will open source solutions impact traditional software and automation domains?
How will a digitally-enhanced workforce stem the loss of tribal knowledge?
How do connected products create opportunities in aftermarket services?
What steps can organizations take to foster innovative thinking?
There are countless ways to run your digital transformation, many technologies and suppliers to evaluate, and endless choices to make. Embedded systems, networks, software platforms, augmented reality, and machine learning will play a role as you begin to improve uptime, optimize performance, enhance services, and re-think your business models.

At the Forum, end users will present case studies that inspire participants to network and ask questions related to their own operations. No presentation can be more inspiring than a peer talking about the practices put in place, what the company learned, what the benefits were, and how the project was implemented. At the previous ARC Forum, Dow Chemical, Lonmin, Nestlé, Red Bull Technology, and Sitech spoke about their approaches, implementations, and experiences.

Challenges continue to grow for the industrial cybersecurity community. Broader deployment of operational technology is expanding the use cases requiring protection.

2017-04-20 : 3IF Roadshow - Industrie 4.0 & Industrieel Internet - Kortrijk

3if road shows

Wat is industrie 4.0 ? Hoe verhoudt het zich tegenover Industrieel Internet? Zijn die dingen iets voor mijn bedrijf? Zijn het zware en intensieve investeringen? Op welke manier kunnen ze bijdragen tot mijn eigen organisatie? Moeten we deze evolutie volgen? Wat zijn de risico’s als we de ontwikkelingen niet volgen; wat doen onze concurrenten in binnen- en buitenland….zijn er alternatieven, ...? Deze en verschillende andere vragen worden niet altijd beantwoord.

3IF Roadshow…..Laat je inspireren
Met de 3IF Roadshow doet 3IF in 2017 diverse plaatsen aan in Vlaanderen, om een antwoord te geven op deze - en meer vragen. Laat je inspireren, ontdek en bespreek nieuwe mogelijkheden, nieuwe tendensen, ontdek verschillen en gelijkenissen, informeer je over de mogelijkheden van sensoren, capteren van gegevens op een genormaliseerde manier, data science, koppelingen naar de cloud, gebruiken van tablets en management rapportering op basis van intelligente monitoring; tot aan het ontwikkelen van nieuwe diensten mogelijk gemaakt door technologische ontwikkelingen. Tijdens de seminars geeft 3IF de mogelijkheid om ideeën te bespreken en dieper in te gaan om uitdagingen en mogelijkheden. Het 3IF team begeleidt de deelnemers in hun exploratie en adviseert tot volgende stappen. Tijdens de inspiratieseminars worden verschillende gastsprekers gevraagd om hun ervaringen te delen.

Doelgroepen: Productiebedrijven, Process Industrie, Technologie-aanbieders

Productiebedrijven (Zaakvoerders, Productieverantwoordelijken)
De ontwikkeling naar de digitale fabriek is niet alleen van toepassing voor grote multinationals. Ook kleinere en middelgrote ondernemingen kunnen gebruik maken van nieuwe technologieën zonder dat ze daarom miljoenen moeten investeren of uitgebreid geschoold moeten zijn. De mogelijkheden lijken onbegrensd, maar daardoor ook vaak moeilijk om te inventariseren of en waarmee te beginnen als organisatie. De beschikbare toepassingen zijn ofwel zeer gespecialiseerd, of wel algemeen toepasbaar, maar daarom niet minder aantrekkelijk.

Toeleveranciers (Zaakvoerders, Productmanagers)
Ook technologiebedrijven en andere toeleveranciers zullen moeten nadenken over de gevolgen voor hun propositie, en welke plaats zij willen innemen in het ecosysteem; willen ze overleven. Er gaan zelfs al stemmen op dat bestaande oplossingen in de toekomst deels of volledig zullen komen te vervallen. Zo zullen bijvoorbeeld software ontwikkelaars steeds meer intelligentie in business software systemen moeten inbouwen; (machine-) bouwers nog meer moeten nadenken over additionele dienstverlening rondom hun product, en industriële automatiseerders over welke competenties ze moeten ontwikkelen om hun klanten goed te kunnen blijven bedienen, nu en in de toekomst.

2016-10-11 Beveiliging is niet langer een IT cost center

Beveiliging is niet langer een IT cost center

door Tara Seals US/North America News Reporter, Infosecurity Magazine, Ulrich Seldeslachts,


Many organizations no longer view cybersecurity as a barrier to change, nor as an IT cost.

That’s the word from the Global State of Information Security Survey 2017 from PwC US, which found that there is a distinct shift in how organizations view cybersecurity, with forward-thinking organizations understanding that an investment in cybersecurity and privacy solutions can facilitate business growth and foster innovation.

According to the survey, 59% of respondents said they have increased cybersecurity spending as a result of digitization of their business ecosystem. In this process, organizations not only create products, but also deliver complementary software-based services for products that extend opportunities for customer engagement and growth.

“There is a distinct transformation in how business leaders are viewing cybersecurity and technology—no longer seeing technology as a threat and understanding that cybersecurity is a vital component that must be adopted into the business framework,” said David Burg, PwC’s US and Global Leader, Cybersecurity and Privacy. “To remain competitive, organizations today must make a budgetary commitment to the integration of cybersecurity with digitization from the outset.”

Survey results also found that as trust in cloud models deepens, organizations are running more sensitive business functions on the cloud. Today, the majority of organizations around the world—63% of survey respondents—say they run IT services in the cloud. Additionally, approximately one-third of organizations were found to entrust finance and operations to cloud providers, reflecting the growing trust in cloud models.

“The fusion of advanced technologies with cloud architectures can empower organizations to quickly identify and respond to threats, better understand customers and the business ecosystem, and ultimately reduce costs,” added Burg. “Cloud models have become more popular in recent years, and that trend will likely only continue as the benefits become increasingly clear.”

According to survey respondents, organizations are also embracing both managed security services and open-source software to enhance cybersecurity capabilities, signaling that businesses are making cybersecurity a priority despite many not having the necessary in-house capabilities and an overall lack in talent to fill key positions. More than half (53%) of respondents employ open-source software and 62% of respondents say they use managed security services for cybersecurity and privacy—relying on managed security services for highly technical initiatives such as authentication, data loss prevention and identity management.

"Designing and implementing a cybersecurity and privacy program is challenging enough, but once a program is in place components must be thoroughly integrated, professionally managed and continuously improved. As this can be difficult for resource-constrained organizations, many are adopting managed security services and utilizing open-source software,” said Bob Bragdon, SVP/publisher of CSO.
