IBM launches AI and Advanced Analytics integrated IoT solutions

IBM launched a portfolio of artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics integrated IoT Internet of Things solutions to improve asset maintenance strategies.

Companies in the field of energy & utilities, chemicals, oil and gas, manufacturing, and transportation, have thousands of assets that need to be monitored and analyzed constantly for maintenance, repair, and replacement decisions. These assets include vehicles, manufacturing robots, turbines, mining equipment, elevators, and electrical transformers, are essential for operations for these organizations and generate huge amounts of data on their operating conditions.

The announcement noted that unplanned downtime can cost a company as much as $260,000 an hour according to analyst firm Aberdeen Research.

IBM Maximo Asset Performance Management (APM) solution help build predictive maintenance strategies by collecting data from these physical assets in near real-time. The solution further provides insights on current operating conditions, predict potential issues, identify problems and offer repair recommendations. The integration of advanced analytics and AI can further help business leaders to predict consequences and identify problems before even failure takes place.
