Intel® Intelligent Systems Framework

Turning data into services and services into revenue

Big Data is here, and it’s expanding exponentially. Much of this data is being generated from the billions of devices poised to make more than a trillion connections. A huge portion of the growth of Big Data comes from intelligent systems—machines that communicate with each other directly and through the cloud, and make up what is frequently called the Internet of Things.

In fact, analyst firm IDC predicts that by 2015, more than one-third of these billions of connected devices will be intelligent systems—an opportunity representing 4 billion units and more than $2 trillion in potential revenue.

Extracting value from Big Data

A significant portion of intelligent systems generates a massive amount of data that, when properly harnessed, holds the potential to improve lives, introduce revolutionary efficiency gains, spur astonishing advances in productivity, and create new, industry-shifting services. The ultimate value, however, is realized with data captured at every step in the system—from sensor controllers to edge gateways, from cloud to client.

To capitalize on this opportunity, enterprise will need the tools, technologies, and platforms required to convert the massive volumes of data into actionable information and integrate the multitudes of disparate systems.

Intel Intelligent Systems Framework

The framework

Intel is driving to simplify the deployment of the Internet of Things to enable customers to extract greater value from their data. To that end, Intel has introduced the Intel® Intelligent Systems Framework (Intel® ISF), a set of interoperable solutions designed to address connecting, managing, and securing devices and data in a consistent and scalable manner.

The framework can scale across applications, reducing fragmentation and speeding time to market. It brings together hardware, operating systems, and tools and software for increased connectivity, manageability, and security.

Intel Intelligent Systems Framework

A robust ecosystem

Intel has a long history of creating scalable technologies and ecosystems that drive transformations in computing. Today, Intel is assembling an ecosystem of system vendors, ISVs, system integrators, and cloud-to-device services that build upon the Intelligent Systems Framework. This ecosystem will also work closely with the Open Data Center Alliance to ensure seamless integration of intelligent systems with the data center and cloud.

Several companies lined up to support the Intelligent Systems Framework,  including:

  • Advantech
  • Arrow Electronics
  • Avnet
  • Axeda
  • Dell
  • Digi International
  • Eurotech
  • Kontron
  • McAfee
  • Portwell
  • WebHouse
  • Wind River
