Splunk has introduced a system to make it easier for customers to use Splunk’s data analytics capabilities to analyse data from industrial systems and devices. The system called Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence or Splunk IAI had been in beta trials with customers in Australia.
IoT data is critical for manufacturers who want to better monitor and diagnose operational issues and predict maintenance needs.

Brazilian oil and gas company Sapura have been troubleshooting existing issues, figuring out ways to improve their safety standards. Shaw Industries are using Splunk IPS for real time predictive analytics in their flooring production line.”
Splunk IAI will be released with limited availability at the forthcoming Hannover Messe industrial conference in Germany. This will be followed by general availability in the northern autumn. The company’s initial marketing focus would be on Europe. Read more…
