Predix is a software platform for building and managing industrial software applications, allowing people to optimise assets. It supports machine intelligence and big data analytics to improve performance.
Predix enables asset and operations optimization by providing a standard way to run industrial-scale analytics and connect machines, data, and people. Deployed on machines, on premise, or in the cloud, Predix combines an industry-leading stack of technologies for distributed computing and big data analytics, asset management, machine-to-machine communication, and mobility.
It monitors data using a variety of sensors to understand the environment surrounding a particular system implementation. It then uses the huge amount of data to predict future events and then executes alternatives so that the end result that the system was designed for is completed. An example is a turbine at a wind farm that is performing below par. Prefix compares historic data with real time data to make adjustments that ensure that the turbine is back to delivering maximum performance.
