Why IIoT-Empower Your Devices?
Why should you look to IIoT-Empower your industrial devices?
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) brings together a number of trends to the facilities management industry:
The Internet of Things,
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication,
And machine learning.
In essence, the idea is to make industrial devices "smarter" by gathering and analyzing data and making appropriate decisions in real-time. Utilizing the IIoT correctly can ultimately redefine how an organization operates and does business.
The original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who make these industrial devices can use the IIoT to improve how they deliver remote service and support, drive product innovation, and develop new business models. The IIoT can also benefit system integrators and facility managers, who can enhance their operational capabilities with full visibility over their installed devices. However, to take full advantage of the IIoT, the first step is to have the products be smart and cloud-connected. We call this IIoT-Empowering the device.
What are the Benefits of the IIoT?
- Visibility to install base
- Improved service and support capabilities
- Product insights, improvements, and innovation
- Product-as-a-Service opportunities
- Unfiltered view of all assets
- Better service and support from vendors
- Business analytics and insights
- New business models
Before You Start...
Journeys are easier when you have a map and a good traveling companion. Ask yourself why you are embarking on the IIoT journey, make sure you know what the destination looks like, and finally, find an experienced partner that can help you get there.
