Device-to-Cloud Interoperability

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an evolution of existing technologies that enables end users to improve processes, drive productivity, and maintain an edge in our increasingly competitive global economy. The IIoT requires technology that can solve the interoperability challenges of device connectivity by reliably and securely delivering data across the public domain at a much larger scale than previously thought possible.

Interoperability is currently the greatest challenge facing the Internet of Things, and may be the missing link to implementing and realizing the value of many IIoT deployments.

Kepware’s industry-leading connectivity platform, KEPServerEX, delivers the most complete solution for device-to-cloud interoperability. KEPServerEX provides a single integrated platform for collecting, aggregating, and providing secure access to your industrial operations data.

KEPServerEX is evolving with the IIoT to support platform independence and new methods of data access—including support for web-based technologies and publish/subscribe messaging protocols. Kepware is developing these solutions to help the IIoT deliver on its promise of improved operational efficiency through applications like preventative maintenance, energy monitoring, product lifecycle insights, and global production tracking.
