The Industrial Internet of Things or IIoT adoption is on the rise. Yet, according to a recent IndustryWeek survey, skepticism is among the factors that continues to hold back adoption, particularly in manufacturing.
“In the next decade, data—or rather, getting the most out of your data—could be the one thing keeping you in business.”

RUMBLE CEO, Terri Foudray, was interviewed by IndustryWeek to share why she thinks IIoT adoption isn’t running more smoothly.
We agree that IoT can be complex and frustrating for the subject matter expert trying to manage a transformation process with internal resources. According to Terri, having the right partners is key to success.
“An experienced IIoT System Integrator has the experience to identify resources required for a complicated integration, source those resources and organize a project that runs to completion and delivers the expected value. Manufacturers should expect smooth seamless project integrations that keep them involved and imbued with the sense of ownership that is critical for long-term success.”
The latest version of the Gartner Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, just released last month, shows that IoT integration has not peaked yet, which we think is consistent with the findings in the IndustryWeek survey.
