The Industrial Internet of Things is fundamentally reshaping many industries. This interconnectivity of equipment, sensors, and instrumentation, also known as IIoT, offers businesses a way to increase their competitiveness by optimizing nearly every step of each process.
IIoT provides the edge by facilitating the collection of critical data, then channeling it into a platform that assists with bolstering process decisions. While the same types of information were gathered and analyzed long before IIoT, advanced technology now allows data to be pulled from multiple sources and examined rapidly and in its entirety. The result is deep insights in real time.
