DESCRIPTION

Wind River Systems provides software operating systems and development tools for embedded systems. A microprocessor and software comprise embedded systems, which are used in more than 1 billion products that include auto braking systems, Internet traffic routers, jet fighter control panels, mobile phones, set-top boxes, traffic signals, and other consumer electronics.

Building safe and secure systems is the hallmark of Wind River. For the past 30 years they have been ensuring that safety-critical systems, for everything from industrial plants and electrical substations to jet airliners and commuter trains, absolutely work without fail. They are now harnessing our decades of field experience to deploy advanced technologies such as software agents and microkernels to more fully integrate our ultra-reliable operating systems into the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things is officially here. And with it are not only new challenges, but also untapped value and immense opportunity estimated at $19 trillion. Realize IoT’s huge potential with Wind River Helix, a comprehensive portfolio of software solutions for harnessing intelligence to drive innovation and business transformation. With their offering, developers and device manufacturers can not only create the safe, secure, and reliable intelligent systems that make up IoT, but also move the data generated by these systems–from the secure and managed devices at the edge, through the gateway, across the critical network infrastructure, and up into the cloud. Wind River Helix is everything a business needs to both survive and thrive in this exciting new era of data.

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates a vendor's relative focus on hardware, software and services.
Hardware
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
