In the IIoT age, industrial companies have the capability to track and manage real-time aspects of their business and assets, from processes and equipment to predicting when a critical component will fail. When fully leveraged, the IIoT can provide users with significantly more intelligent control over their assets. This intelligence will undoubtedly lead to new, unanticipated growth opportunities, efficiencies and rapid innovation.
The largest and most present challenge for corporations wishing to capitalize on the IIoT is determining how to harness the data and correlate it with external data sources to truly create actionable insights, all within milliseconds. This is no small feat. Further compounding the complexities of the IIoT is much of the data comes from completely disparate systems and sources (device/sensor level, enterprise-level, even external sources) all at different times, resolutions, formats, velocities and using completely different communication protocols and methods.
The only way for an industrial organization to come around the curve and efficiently capitalize on the exponentially growing data in industrial environments is through a solution that is purpose-built for the Industrial Internet. Download the white paper and watch the video featuring Zack Wickes, VP, Engineering, at Bit Stew, to learn how industrial organizations can prepare to take full advantage of the IIoT.
