The IIoT and Industry 4.0 are dramatically changing the landscape for manufacturing companies throughout the globe.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), also known as the Industrial Internet, brings together brilliant machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. It’s the network of a multitude of devices connected by communications technologies that results in systems that can monitor, collect, exchange, analyze, and deliver valuable new insights like never before. These insights can then help drive smarter, faster business decisions for industrial companies.
The IIoT is transforming industry —changing the way industries work. Whether it’s enabling predictive analytics to detect corrosion inside a refinery pipe, or providing real-time production data to uncover additional capacity in a plant, or driving visibility and control over your industrial control systems environment to prevent cyber-attacks, the IIoT—and the software solutions powered by it—are driving powerful business outcomes.
By combining machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, industrial big data analytics, technology, cyber security, and HMI and SCADA, the IIoT is driving unprecedented levels of efficiency, productivity, and performance. And as a result, industrial companies in power and energy, oil and gas, manufacturing, healthcare, aviation, and many other industries are experiencing transformative operational and financial benefits.
The term “Industry 4.0” refers to the combination of several major innovations in digital technology that are poised to transform the energy and manufacturing sectors. From advanced robotics and machine learning to software-as-a-service and the Industrial Internet of Things, these changes enable a powerful new way of organizing global operations.
The IT (information technology) and OT (operational technology) should be confident that this is the right approach and actively pushing towards Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 will be massively different depending on the industry.
We help manufacturers harness iot devices to track and monitor assets across factories, optimize inventory management, and make autonomous decisions regarding execution of manufacturing operations. Our solutions enable manufacturers to analyze real-time machine data to undertake predictive maintenance at the right time.
