IoT at the peak of inflated expectations: Thilak Kumar, Wind River

Saheli Sen Gupta | June 29, 2016
Touted as one of the most hyped technologies of 2015, IoT has created a buzz in the IT industry. Thilak Kumar, Head FAE APAC, Wind River, guides us through the rise of IoT.

We are also very closely involved with the Digital India campaign and believe that it will smoothen out quite a few of these obstacles in terms of enabling broadband connectivity in tier-2 and tier-3 cities as well as mobile connectivity.

What is Wind River's roadmap going ahead when it comes to IoT?

The way we look at IoT is a convergence of OT and IT -- Operational Technology and Information Technology. Traditionally, we have been operating in the OT space and it's not a big challenge for us at all.

Our roadmap is well poised to offer some of these cloud based solutions and the whole idea is to make sure that the development of IoT solutions is made as simple as possible for any class of developers. We expect people from the IT side to interact with the OT world and making the interaction as seamless as possible.

What are the in-depth benefits of an IoT solution?

For a business, IoT solutions can help in making and saving money as well as in compliance. It can help with real time analytics and predictive maintenance. In the larger context, it can change the fundamental business model and enable one to move from a device centric business model to a more service centric model.
