What is in the first picture? It looks rather formidable!

Re: pic
@Ariella: The first pix is the same as the second, just a wide-angle shot that's not as closely cropped. It's the maintiance program from the shop floor. The bottom part is the HPE servers and networking that form the back-end of the system.

Re: pic
So it includes the servers. That's why it's a big piece of equipment. I'm so used to thinking of IoT devices as small things that can be carried anywhere. But you do need the back-end for the computing power.

Re: pic
@Ariella: Correct. HPE wanted to show off the whole ecosystem. Basically, the underneath is the data center where everything is stored and where the data is analyzed.

Lab environment
The issue with anything like this dsiplayed at a conference or similar setting is that everything works (or should) without integration, communication or other issues. While IoT is certainly here and moving quickly into retail and other industries, it's still in the top part of the hype cycle, as Gartner terms it.

Re: Lab environment
PhillBrit, while that is often true technology today is easier to integrate than the tech that was built years ago. Furthermore, most developers understand that integration is key and build for that purpose today. Years ago there was not as much need for integration because the software was often stand alone and the hardware infrastructure resided solely on a physical site. Our world has completely changed....

Re: Lab environment
I know things are better today, but it's rare that in an office or home you have everything as cleanly connected as it can be in a "lab" environment. Of course, there are exceptions. In the late 1990s, I covered a wireless conference at McCormick Place in Chicago, and you couldn't get a wireless connection on the conference floor.

Re: Lab environment
Yes, we were still in our infancy in those days--dial up was still alive and well! In the future, 3G will feel like the dark ages and we will be accustomed to more seamless integration and applications that work together out of the box. OI am looking forward to the death of the app that fills up my phone. How many apps do we really need the management is ridiculous!

Crystal pyramid
Scott -- Do you know what's that crystal pyramid in the first picture? It looks intriguing. -Susan
