The Internet of Things (IoT) could be the next business revolution. Companies are finding ways to increase efficiency, scale and profitability with the IoT. But who is leading the IoT transformation on the ground? Leaders like Sébastien Boria of Airbus and Stefano Concezzi of National Instruments are moving IoT into the next phase. HPE explains the efforts the two men and others are making toward the development of IoT technology and how it will benefit customers and the businesses they work for.

Utilizing IoT to run an efficient assembly line is something Amazon and other logistics companies have down. But when it comes to airplane manufacturing, assembly lines just aren’t there yet. A dwindling workforce in the industry has led to a backlog in production.
Boria aims to mitigate this backlog with his “factory of the future” at Airbus. And the production line at the French company isn’t only robots at work fastening bolts, it’s also made up of human workers equipped with hand tools containing sensors and smart headsets that can confirm whether or not work is done correctly.

In 2015, the number of individual connected components available in a car increased 67 percent, and Gartner predicts at least 250 million vehicles will be connected by 2020. Still, public safety concerns remain.
Enter Stefano Concezzi. This year, Concezzi and his team at National Instruments demonstrated Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which allow for the flexibility and scalability of autonomous vehicles. Most importantly, ADAS can detect car system issues that would have otherwise gone undetected.
National Instruments also announced a partnership with HPE to realize data center-level compute in remote locations—increasing data processing speed by minimizing the need to transmit data to an off-premise data center or to the cloud.
