Discrete manufacturing possesses more stored data than all other industries including the government, healthcare and communications sectors. The gains available to manufacturers through analysis of readily accessible data are significant. Capture of this data, processing of it, and acting on it requires a secure distributed system consisting of devices, gateways, servers, and "big data" and data analytics engines.
The success of the Machine-to-machine, Internet-of-things, and Industrial Internet trend is forcing the edge device, e.g. PLC, sensors, actuators, gateways, etc., to be rethought. Industrial devices can have a life expectancy of 15 years. Compare this with the innovation rate of the Internet. The industry faces growing requirements to accelerate new device software development, increase software assurance, security, and reliability, reduce defects, and automate deployment of applications and updates.
