Industrial Internet of Things - interconnected assets, the next level of automation

Digital connectivity is no longer limited to traditional network devices. Within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT for short), a wide variety of technical components, such as sensors, instruments, other devices, or things can now be interconnected with management or analysis applications across geographies and corporate network levels up to the cloud.

Are you curious to know how this can benefit your company? Read more about it in this article.


Definition: How does IIOT work?

Anything that exposes data now can take part in the automation pyramid and is able to deliver their data to a platform used for data collection, contextualization, storage, analysis, and exchange. This adds an additional level of information detail enabling big data and selective analysis at the same time.

It may sound futuristic, but we’re already there: wear parts can announce their imminent replacement automatically, moveable equipment transmits geolocation and data live to augmented reality environments. Only a few of the many IIoT use cases that demonstrate the benefits of a comprehensive IIoT platform.

Unlock benefits for your business with modern IIoT-ready software supporting your scale, whether you are starting, continuing, or going big with your IIoT initiative.
