In this paper we present an approach based on the use of embedded network devices for the deployment of small network services suitable for IT management in industrial and manufacturing environments. The novelty of the proposal resides in the fact that allows to unfold IT services that can be deployed without the need for specialized IT staff since the services in question have a zero maintenance design philosophy. They are presented under both conventional (client-server) and more open (SOA) standards, more specifically, as Web Services. To illustrate the specific the proposal, we have chosen as an example an embedded device able to monitor the correct operation of the applications and IT services located in the current manufacturing equipment and components.
