Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
@faryl I think we'll begin to see a boom in sensor technology as industrial IoT applications mature. Industrial sensors will be in demand. Someone must meet that demand.

Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
Pairing an electronics manufacturer with a sensor company makes a lot of sense. 

We're going to be seeing a lot of devices made in the coming years that have sensors built in. Kind of reminds me of when computers started having cameras installed. It just happened - and now they all have them, phones included.

Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
@afwriter, I agree. Sensors have solved some common and not so common problems for companies and consumers.

TDK Eyes IvenSense
This is great. This acquisition makes sense and will help consumers and the industries noted. Other acquisitions seem more concerned about profit.

Auto, energy and manufacturing are great industries to start with. I would welcome more sensors in autos as well as energy products for homeowners such as thermostats.

This is great, however with any technology it is only as good as the programmer who coded it.

Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
I agree. This merger seems like a good marriage between TDK's existing technology and the additional mechanisms that IvenSense's sensors detect.

Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
@afwriter well, that makes sense. As sensors become more economical to produce and can be made small enough and flexible enough to fit in places they coudl not have gone before, a lot more possibilities open up. So we see sensors used in various sports, as well as in medical monitoring in ways that don't impede movement at all.

Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
This merger shows that sensors are becoming a bigger and bigger part of our lives and a welcome one for that matter. This new collaboration seems like it will be a large step forward for the industry as a whole.

In an industry where production yield and efficiency are tantamount to success, quickly identifying and correcting defects in the manufacturing process is critical. The customers of Optimal+ operate in production environments where errors related to yield and efficiency measurements can lead to losses of millions of dollars per year within a single plant. By implementing Vertica, Optimal+ is able to speed up analytical insights, combine data from different productions processes and gain visibility across the whole supply chain – leading to improved yield, quality and productivity for semiconductor and electronics manufacturers.

Join Alon Malki, Chief Architect at Optimal+, and Jeff Healey, Director of Product Marketing at HPE Vertica, to hear how advanced analytics and manufacturing intelligence can drive success in Industrial IoT. On this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Why HPE Vertica Analytics Platform is purpose built for IoT data
  • The challenges Optimal+ faced when developing a solution for IoT analytics
  • How Optimal+ leverages HPE Vertica to create an ideal big data architecture
