Interestingly, the Internet of Things isn’t a thing at all. It’s lots of little things. The power is in extending Internet connectivity beyond standard devices, such as computers and smartphones, to any range of traditional dumb or non-connected physical devices, products, and even human-driven processes. Embedded with technologies such as sensors, electronics, and actuators, these things are now able to connect, collect, and exchange data. These real-time interactions are disrupting status quo thinking, resulting in a quantum leap in productivity improvements, business process optimization and revenue growth.
Internet of Things is not new, machines have been connected for many years, but recent advancements in technology have led to significant functionality and performance improvements and the ability to connect what was once thought to be unconnectable. The result is not a revolution in technology, but a revolution on how companies can compete and dominate in their industry.
“Breakdowns can be reduced by a whopping 70% by IoT… and 12% of the money that would have been spent on repairs can be saved and channeled into other aspects of manufacturing”. – Global Trade Magazine
For example, industrial and manufacturing companies are impacting the bottom line by better predicting preventive maintenance on new and pre-existing factory machinery, increasing throughput through real-time analysis of demand, and more precisely controlling inventories. Estimates are that Industrial IoT will help manufacturers increase productivity by 30%. (Enmotive)
