Rethinking IIoT to Stay Competitive in the Manufacturing Industry

Sponsored by Microsoft and GE Digital

The table stakes for the industrial internet of things (IIoT) has matured. With the rapid commodity of technology and a lowered barrier to entry, anyone who wants to connect machines and devices now can do so readily to solve a single problem. That means any competitive advantages you get from IIoT will soon disappear. To stay resilient in the currently unpredictable economic environment, manufacturers need to rethink their approach to IIoT and require more from their technologies: flexibility, scalability, and resilience.

In this panel, our speakers will discuss:
– The current state of IIoT: rapid commoditization of technology and lower barrier to entry
– The pressing challenge to improve efficiency and productivity
– New requirements for IIoT: providing insights, not just data, that can drive continuous improvements
– A new approach to technology selection and deployment (human-centric) and how it can help evolve IIoT
– Real-Time Monitoring & Analytics
