It’s 2020, which means it’s time to look back at 2019 and reminisce about the good times – fun with family and friends, good food, travel, and memories to last a lifetime. Who am I kidding?

Self-Service Analytics for the Shop Floor [Part I] - Splunk Core Concepts

Despite the hype around predictive maintenance, basic data collection and analysis are still high priorities for manufacturing companies and key criteria for the success of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) projects.
