Amazon.com, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: AMZN) Amazon Web Services, Inc. reported general availability of AWS IoT SiteWise. AWS Iot SiteWise is a managed service that collects data from the plant floor, structures and labels the data, and generates real-time key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics to help industrial customers make better, data-driven decisions. The SiteWise monitor may be utilized by customers to monitor operations across facilities and compute industrial performance metrics while creating applications that analyze industrial equipment data to prevent costly equipment issues and reduce gaps in production. Customers can collect data consistently across devices and identify issues with remote monitoring at a faster rate and improve multi-site processes using centralized data.
“Industrial customers tell us that getting their data into the cloud and using it to understand their operational performance is the biggest opportunity they see when evaluating IoT solutions,” said Dirk Didascalou, Vice President of IoT, AWS. “With SiteWise, industrial customers can now use the power of AWS to collect, organize, and monitor their industrial equipment data at scale. SiteWise will help industrial customers move beyond data collection and enable them to visualize and monitor all their equipment, so they can focus on their main job of optimizing their operations.”
SiteWise will also provide interfaces to collect data from modern industrial applications through MQ Telemetry Transport or MQTT messages or its Application Programming Interface. Currently SiteWise is available in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt), and Europe (Ireland) AWS regions, with additional regions coming soon.
