The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will digitize and interconnect factory environments. The fitting of myriad equipment with sensors, and the ability to collect, transmit and interpret data in real-time, will provide companies with far greater visibility of their assets than has ever been possible. This new capability brings the potential for smarter factories based on preventative maintenance methodologies. It will also transform the way that equipment is monitored and repaired out in the field, leading to the emergence of new service-based business models. For maintenance professionals, the IIoT will prompt the use of new technologies such as augmented reality and wearable devices, changing the way they perform their daily roles, and moving them up hierarchical structures.
Are you grappling with the challenge of developing early leaders? Its critical that early leaders are able to manage themselves, others, and the business in a way that aligns with organizational needs. Yet, less than half of early leaders (42%) receive formal training to help them transition into this vital role for organizations, and over 80% of those who try fail to make the transition as successfully as planned.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is in the midst of an explosion, as more connected devices proliferate. But there's not enough talent with the right skills to manage and execute on IoT projects. In fact, insufficient staffing and lack of expertise is the top-cited barrier for organizations currently looking to implement and benefit from IoT, according to research from Gartner.
A survey of technology decision-makers at mid- to large-scale enterprises found that IoT adoption is coming to the vast majority of businesses within the next two years, but many of those businesses arent yet ready to cope with the change.
Data from a study of 200 industrial and contracting executives shows that the Internet of Things (IoT), when well-integrated with business software, can facilitate digital transformation, drive revenue, reduce costs and increase competitiveness.
In this white paper, you will find information from that study and learn about:
The relationship between IoT and Digital Transformation
How widely IoT data is used, including advanced use cases
Whether ERP, EAM or FSM software helps or hinders IoT adoption
Planned future IoT investments
IoT usage for aftermarket service or servitization
Smart buildings are no longer a figment of our futuristic imaginations. This $6B USD market is projected to grow to $24.73B USD by 2021, and today nearly every large enterprise or government facility has some level of smart functionality.
Harnessing the connected world, these innovative buildings use sensors and digital controllers to automate, manage and optimize HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and A/C), lighting, electricity, gates, surveillance systems, and more. As a result, they conserve less energy, are easier to manage, and more comfortable to live and work in.
New survey shows most energy companies plan IoT projects but about half lack the necessary skills in cybersecurity and tech support; analytical skills are also in demand; plus, Brooklyn Library launches IoT initiative for smartphone charging.
f we were to ask you to gather a group of three people to carry large stones block by block to build an Egyptian Pyramid, would you think were crazy? What if we gave you an infinite amount of time? And if you and the rest of your group are physically very strong? Were going to guess you would outrightly call us stupid. Its still a near impossible task. Now let's make a slight change to the instructions. Each person can call on two of their friends. This small change is what made the impossible into a reality.
Backtrack just two years, and you might recall that the internet of things (IoT) was widely recognized as a series of connected devices found in smart homes and on wearable clothing. Few foresaw its relevance in factory settings; the idea was largely unexplored.
In 2017 industrial IoT is all the rage, and with good reason. The transformation of industrial products, operations, supply chains and aftermarket services through the ubiquitous use of sensors, software, wireless connectivity and information systems, will result in untold levels of accuracy, efficiency, automation and data insights.
