NI announced a solution that can provide companies insight into the health of capital equipment for machine maintenance and operations. NI unveiled the new version of InsightCM Enterprise, an end-to-end software solution that addresses some of the challenges faced by the asset monitoring industry.

NI has consistently been an active contributor to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology and saw that the variety of sensors, speed of measurements required and a vast number of commissioned assets create a Big Analog Data problem. The following IIoT technology platforms from the company, such as NI InsightCM, DIAdem and CompactRIO, include distributed sensor measurements, edge processing, analytics and open communication and data management aid in solving Big Analog Data problems by delivering real-time information, as opposed to large volumes of unfiltered data to subject matter experts (SMEs).
