Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementation and value streams are under close examination as forward-thinking organizations continue to adopt the technology in their factories, warehouse, offices and more. Read these hand-selected articles on these to learn more:
1. To Really Take Advantage of Computing, Let’s Remake Our Tools
2. How to Create an Airtight Case for the Industrial IoT (IIoT)
What makes for a successful Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementation? There are many contributing factors to an effective IIoT deployment: technology solutions, installation environments, and pilot test outcomes. However, one of the underappreciated elements to IIoT success may be getting executive or senior-level backing. According to an IoT World Today study, of the respondents who reported “excellent” results, 60 percent had the backing of c-level executives while respondents with less-than-stellar results said the level of c-level support was 35 percent.
3. IIoT Platforms: The Technology Stack as Value Driver in Industrial Equipment and Machinery
Sell quality hardware. This was once the undisputed business model of traditional industrial equipment and machinery companies. As a growing number of components become commoditized, however, companies are finding that the formula for success has to change. Commoditization, along with intensifying global competition and a shift in technology stack value pools, is compelling industrial equipment and machinery companies to allocate resources that have been solely dedicated to hardware toward digital.
4. 5 Tips for Optimizing Compressed Air With the IIoT
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can improve every aspect of operations, including those dealing with compressed air. Maintaining compressed air is as critical as keeping up with energy use, so don’t let this oft-used utility go neglected. Be sure to connect it to the rest of your facility through the IIoT, and give yourself some peace of mind surrounding your shop’s compressed air.
