Implementing Edge computing
The 3 biggest concerns around IoT, accroding to a recent Bain IoT customer survey, are security, high price or unclear economic benefit and difficulty integrating IT with operational technology. At the same time as these concerns slow down some, the fast movers are already gaining significant competitive advantage from IoT. According to an Industry-Week/Genpact study, leaders are seeing significant returns in areas such as operational improvement, business agility, supply chain, optimisation, asset utilisation and regulatory compliance. The difference between leaders and those striving to implement IoT is significant. According to the same study 53% of those who have an IoT budget are increasing it from last year. Those who have seen the light, are increasing their speed and reaping in the benefits. Security is tackled seriously at several levels, both fysical and logical, in the way things are done and using the best and most advanced technology to do so. High price is a myth. With the cost of sensors coming down and the competition between platforms, making an asset intelligent can see pay back times measured in months. Among our customers, the best we have seen so far was 14 days. The Distence solution touches so many of the components of the ROI calculation; cost, revenue, asset life etc. that the compiled result can surprise. With open linux architecture and extreme flexibility in both the way we work and the way the technology is built, application and integration, when necessary, is not only fast but also economic.
Introducing Distence Condence – IIoT platform
We at Distence have developed a totally new IIOT platform – Distence Condence. No one likes too many clouds in the sky, nor is it typically a sustainable situation in the long term. Condence capsulizes the key features of needed features of an IIOT cloud for remote use- and condition monitoring solutions. It is a result from 15 years of experience from working with mission critical industrial operations.The Smart terminal- and Device management is taken to the next level. Enabling true control and management of not only the smart terminals, but also the behaviour of the terminal related to data collection, alarms, local automated actions and local applications.
Ease of use, Flexibility, Reliability, Scalability and of course Security – covering all levels from user identification, signed certifications in applications to bi-direcional communications. It also has the capability to adopt customer specific encryptions.

Pilotting IoT is easy
Typical Distence pilot implementation project costs approx. 5.000eur and takes only 2 weeks.
In the introduction to this newsletter, we mentioned the 3 biggest concerns around IoT were, accroding to a recent Bain IoT customer survey: security, high price or unclear economic benefit and difficulty integrating IT with operational technology. Yet the leaders are moving at lightning speed in this area.
Those who sail, know, that it is impossible to steer a sail boat unless it is moving. It needs momentum. So does an IoT project. An IoT-strategy necessitates piloting. It is critical to pilot, experiment, iterate and learn from trial and error. What information is availabe and how can it be used. At Distence, we often start from one application, say condition monitoring, move to condition and operations monitoring, from monitoring to management. We keep bringing information users to ther table. First it might include technical service people, but as the process advances, sales, HR, operations and finance find their piece of valuable information and the ROI grows. Most of the pilots can be done at around 5000 euros, and can be kicked off in a matter of days. Using mobile technology, very little to no integration work is needed with IT-systems, making it extremely low cost and low risk to pilot. Some most mission critical application, such as those done for power plants, stick with mobile technologies also after piloting, due to redundancy and other reasons. A good example of this is the Kotka Energia case, click here to read.
