The collaboration is segregated into two main parts. First part is for internal use where Nornir will employ the qbee.io asset management system to administer internal network resources that build up the Hive infrastructure.
Second part is to embed the system into Nornir´s Hive Collective so it can be offered to network domain owners as a service. The new asset management system will be a state of the art solution where machine learning from Nornir can be integrated as part of the service offering.
The asset management industry is one of the fastest growing markets in the world and is expected to reach $100 trillion in 2021. The industry is moving into the internet of things era which opens up new markets and opportunities where digital assets become intelligent and embedded into various additional representations like BIM models and Digital Twins.
One of the main benefits of using machine learning in asset management solutions is that the asset itselves tells the system when it needs to be replaced, who can replace it and when. Anything that can become autonomous to reduce cost and simplify management will be an important part of any asset management solution.
qbee is a Norwegian software company delivering a SaaS device management solution for Linux and embedded Linux. This solution is used for various IoT projects such as asset management, remote access through the built-in VPN or over-the-air software updates.
A CVE vulnerability analysis ensures that systems managed with qbee are secure. In addition, a full monitoring solution gives detailed insights into the health of the system both in terms of metrics and other relevant properties.
