Implementing an Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) strategy is increasingly important to companies that build machines. One reason is that their customers, the machine owners and users, have become aware that the IoT can offer them significant benefits and savings. They know that automated, analytical applications based on machine data will reduce downtime, increase production, achieve higher quality, and save energy. At ei3, we believe that machine builders and OEMs have a valuable opportunity to deliver specialized IoT applications to their markets. This belief stems from the many value streams that are driven by more productive operations and equipment. Machine builders have a deep base of equipment knowledge and understand manufacturing best practices. This makes the delivery of IoT services a natural extension of the engineering-driven relationship between machine builders and their customers. To succeed in today's marketplace, it is imperative to have a strategy that delivers the power of the IoT. Since opening our doors in 1999, we have provided internet solutions to OEMs serving a diverse range of manufacturing industries. From this vantage point, we have identified value streams that provide significant benefits by connecting machines to the Internet. This article examines the top four value streams and presents reasons why they form the essence of a successful machine IoT strategy.
Keychain demonstrates to the Japanese government that blockchain technology is compatible with small Internet of Things (IoT) devices, using a fraction of the memory used by IOTA and solving the long-standing riddle of how to leverage blockchain technology in industrial IoT.
